A pet shop specializing in birds. The various caged birds chirp along to the score in their various styles (including a set of birds that looks like the Marx Brothers).

I hope you like birds
10 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Because this short if chock full of nothing but shrill cheeps and squawks. It's enough to give a viewer a migraine! The actual plot does not come into play until the last two minutes of this seven minute short film.

The visuals are nothing to hoot about either (pun intended, I'm so sorry, forgive me God). The backgrounds are sparse and barely existent. The animation is standard for the time with nothing to set it apart. The gags are dull, save a few (the kissing birds, the "Four Marx Birds", the cat's demise at the end, etc.).

Unless you're a Disney completionist as I am, then The Bird Store (1932) is a Silly Symphony you should avoid.
