Nice beavers
2 September 2013 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

As with "Birds of a Feather", another black and white 1931 Silly Symphony, this short mainly features beavers going about their daily business building a dam, moving and working to the beat and rhythm of the music. The beavers themselves are kinda cute and look like distant cousins of early Mickey.

It's an animation showcase that is still mildly impressive, but mostly forgettable as the primitive nature neuters its lasting appeal. I understand that these type of shorts were animated by very small amount of people, sometimes just a crew of two, and that they were pioneers of sorts, but that doesn't make the actual content a classic. The flood animation looks good however.
