I can't believe how much I liked the clocks!!
18 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of a butt-load of black & white shorts from the DVD set entitled "More Silly Symphonies"--from the Disney Treasures Collection. Like the other Symphonies, it consists of lots of action all set to music--and none of the usual Disney characters (such as Mickey). In this case, it is set in a clock shop. The clocks ring along with the music and even dance! Watches also manage to dance! I particularly liked the super-cute pocket watches (including the one with the WED engraving on it--for Walter Elias Disney) as well as the character clocks--you just need to see them for yourself to see what I mean.

Quality-wise, this is one of the better shorts in the series, as the animation is top-notch for a black & white (yes, I know, the later color ones were even nicer). The music is very enjoyable as well and the film should appeal mostly to older audiences and those who can appreciate the style of the Symphonies. I doubt that most kids would appreciate seeing more than a few of these well-made film, however, as their style is a bit old fashioned and the narrative is a bit thin--but for 1931 it's pretty amazing.
