Storyline

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). A cat eyes the proceedings hungrily and makes his way in through an open transom, causing panic and an organized counterattack. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Where's the mute button!!
13 May 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

'The Bird Store' is a plotless, black and white Silly Symphony. The first half is just scenes of different animated birds squawking out a melody. It doesn't take long for that to get pretty annoying, you'll be scrambling for the mute button. The second half centers on what happens when a cat wanders in to the bird store. The only thing I really found enjoyable here was the unique designs of some of the bird characters. I especially enjoyed the four birds made to look like the Marx Brothers. It's certainly not required viewing.
