Who can hate the "Blue Danube"?!
18 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is yet another black & white short cartoon from the "More Silly Symphonies" collection from Disney. These consist of early cartoons that feature characters dancing about to music instead of the more familiar characters like Mickey and Minnie. At the time, they were quite popular and often imitated--and rival studios began naming their products with very similar sounding names such as "Merry Melodies" and "Happy Harmonies"--and having very similar sorts of stories--though the animation and overall quality just wasn't quite as good.

"Night" features night creatures such as fireflies as well as the moon and other non-anamorphic things cavorting about to the music. In general, the animation quality of this one didn't seem quite as good as most of the other films in the series. In particular, the frogs looked a bit...cheesy and poorly drawn. Also, there really is no discernible plot--none. These make "Night" one of the poorest entries in the series.
