Entertaining silly symphony about the god of the sea
18 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

King Neptune is a good Silly Symphony, and very entertaining. True some of the animation is dated despite the lovely underwater backgrounds, but there is plenty of action and entertainment for youngsters. I will say, it is one of my least favourite silly symphonies, due to the fact, it isn't quite as memorable as something like Flowers and Trees or Skeleton Dance. However, there is some beautiful music, and King Neptune is a great character, and I loved the mermaids and the pirates. The highlight of the silly symphony is the storm sequence, Neptune's laugh is quite terrifying. I was just thinking, that Neptune does look a lot like Santa Claus in the Silly Symphonies Santa's Workshop and The Night Before Christmas.

Overall, a nice silly symphony, not the most memorable of them all, but worth a look. 8/10 Bethany Cox
