Storyline

Two bear cubs tussle harmlessly, then start to munch on a berry bush, until a bigger, meaner bear chases them off. They nibble some flowers and find a bee, which they follow to the hive, which they then proceed to raid. The big bear chases them off, but unknown to him, a bee spotted the raid and has summoned the attack squad. The bees run him off, and the cubs dig in. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Simple and adorable, and you have to love those baby bears
14 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What I loved about Bears and Bees was its cuteness and its simplicity. The black and white animation is very very good, and the music is just terrific. While it is plot less, it is very simple, and that actually added to the silly symphony's charm. The characters were very appealing; the big bear is certainly very ferocious. But the baby bears are simply adorable, and I shed a tear when they started crying. And the bees were funny; I do confess I am terrified of bees and wasps, in real life I freak out at the sight of them. However, I can't help love Bears and Bees, then again there may be a sense of bias, because I adore Silly Symphonies, especially the Christmas ones, that were part of my childhood. All in all, if you love Silly Symphonies, see this gem. You will not be disappointed. 10/10 Bethany Cox
