While not being one of the best, this Silly Symphony was delightful in my eyes
Of course, The Busy Beavers is not perfect, the character designs of the beavers are unappealing and don't really stand out and it is virtually plot less with not as many individual standout scenes as other cartoons of the time and after. However, the backgrounds are very smooth and crisp, the music is catchy and beautifully matches the animation and vice versa and the sound effects are really very clever and enhance the music rather than disrupting from it. The sight gags and the inventive ways of working to build the dam are both funny and cute. And as for a standout scene, there is one in particular, which is the one with the flood, which in terms of animation, synchronisation and how the camera moved was very impressive then and now. All in all, delightful if not quite good enough to be one of my favourites. 8/10 Bethany Cox
