Yet another reason why I love the season Winter so much...
14 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not only is Winter the Christmas season, my favourite holiday, but also I can see some of Silly Symphony's seasonal offerings. Although, this is yet another tribute to the four seasons, it does have a seasonal feel to it, and reminds me vaguely of On Ice. The animation, as is expected, is terrific, and holds up well. The music is outstanding; I admit it, I love the Skater's Waltz, it is just fun to listen to, and sticks in your head for a while, and in this case it's a good thing. The characters, like the reindeer, and the adorable bear that looks like Mickey Mouse, are delightful and sweet, particularly when they start dancing on the ice. All in all, truly fun to watch. 10/10 Bethany Cox
