Not bad...
18 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is yet another of Disney's so-called 'Silly Symphonies'--a cartoon short devoted to music and dancing and without the usual Disney characters, like Mickey. Oddly, there is no opening music as the credits and title screen roll but the rest is pretty much what you'd expect--a nice orchestra piece that is illustrated with cutesy characters. In this case, bugs dance about and enjoy the summer. This apparently is part of an overall theme, as the studio also did "Springtime", "Autumn" and "Winter" around the same time period. It's all quite nice and the animation is fortunately better than "Autumn" and "Springtime" (which I just saw a few minutes ago)--I have yet to see Winter (the last one made in the series). However, the seasons series aren't so far among the better examples of the Silly Symphonies and perhaps that is why they are included in the second volume of the DVD sets. Not bad--but not great either.
