Probably the best of the four season shorts.
18 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Starting in the late 1920s, the Walt Disney Company began to produce a series of shorts under the umbrella label "Silly Symphonies" and they consisted of various creatures dancing about to the ever-present music. However, in the case of "Springtime", "Summer", "Autumn" and "Winter", they decided to produce a series within the series--all based on the seasons. Of the four, "Winter" was the last to debut.

"Winter" consists of lots of creatures cavorting about and enjoying the snow--though a few should have been hibernating! In this particular case, a bear cub wakes up and begins annoying the adult bear--and the adult is pretty mad at first. But, as everyone is having a great time, it gets into the spirit of it all. Aside from this, there really is no discernible plot other than when the animals all come to see the groundhog to see when spring will occur.

While not a great short at all, it's among the best of the four if not the best--even if it's short on plot. Nice animation and a few semi-funny moments make this just a bit better than the others.
