Storyline

The mythological satyr plays some tunes on his pipes and gets various flora and fauna dancing to them. Two clouds also dance; they bump into each other, causing lightning strikes that start a forest fire. The animals rush to escape the fire. Finally, an animal comes to tell Pan of the fire; he rushes to it, and gets it to dance to his tune, right into the lake. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Exceedingly charming!
27 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are Silly Symphonies that I absolutely love whether they are simple or not, The Old Mill, Ugly Duckling, Flowers and Trees, the Goddess of Spring and Water Babies. Playful Pan is one of them, exceedingly charming, while having no dialogue and being simple in plot. What makes this Silly Symphony is the animation, with solid backgrounds and convincing character features and the music from the charming, simple melodies played on the pipes to the more dramatic and stirring music as the fire started. The characters again are sweet, from the dancing flowers to the pipe-playing centaur. Overall, very charming with wonderful music especially. 10/10 Bethany Cox
