This Silly Symphony answers the old question about where all of our Easter candy comes from...and it's apparently NOT the Hershey or M&M-Mars factories. In this short, you see tons of deliriously happy rabbits cavorting about making chocolate eggs, baskets and the like. It's all VERY happy...and also very plot-less. And, because there is tons of saccharine-like singing, it's the sort of film that might make older audiences suicidal!! But, for a very young audience it's great--with lots of color, TONS of cuteness and non-stop action. I noticed some other reviewer gave it a 10...well, I supposed it takes all types of people to make the world go round--and my type hates plot-less treacle. However, I can at least respect the nice animation--a hallmark of all of Disney's cartoons. So why, if I hated the cartoon, did I still give it a 4? Well, because relative to other cartoons of the day, this one is still pretty good--and practically all the competition was also making singing cartoons which would only appeal to very young children!
