Excellent animation, though a bit too cutesy in spots
24 September 2014 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an entry in the Silly Symphonies series released by Disney. There will be spoilers ahead:

The pairing of music and animation in this short is excellent and some of the gags are quite funny. The moon at the beginning struck me as less a Disney touch and more like what would be done with the bouncing ball in sing-along cartoons, It's the biggest misfire in this short. It truly doesn't fit in very well.

Various insects dance around to appropriate music. The short is basically bookended by a tale of two courtships, with mixed results. An owl seeks to court a lady owl, starting out well, until he goes a touch too far and blows his chances. The short closes with frogs, with a frog courting his sweetie and a chorus of frogs "singing". The courting frogs go dancing off on lily pads. The end is good, if predictable.

This short is available on the Disney Treasures More Silly Symphonies DVD set. This short and the set are worth tracking down. Recommended.
