In the last of the Silly Symphonies season cycle, bears hibernate (or try to), raccoons sneeze, moose swim, and pretty much everyone ice skates. Everyone gathers around the groundhog to see what happens.
I have made it obvious many times before that I do love the Disney Silly Symphonies. But I don't consider Night one of their best. It does have luscious shading and lovely background art, with the standouts being the opening scene and with the lightning bugs, and the music itself, mainly the use of Strauss' On the Beautiful Blue Danube, is full of beauty and energy. The gags are more amusing than laugh-out-loud funny but good all the same. The characters are cute too. However, Night, in a similar vein to the Silly Symphonies Four Seasons quartet, is virtually plot-less with not much interesting happening in the story other than to introduce the characters, music and such, and the scene with the buck-tooth moon(who intentionally sings terribly) I felt took away from the basic tone of the cartoon, which is quite simple and sweet but this scene juxtaposed too much coming across as silly. Most of the characters were well animated, but the frogs weren't quite on the same level coming across as stiff at times. Overall it is good, quite charming and interesting but it lacks something. 7/10 Bethany Cox
