Disney Invades The Poultry Yard

A Walt Disney SILLY SYMPHONY Cartoon Short.

Fighting COCK O' THE WALK arrives in town, the star of his own conceited parade, and proceeds to win the hearts of all the biddies. He latches onto fickle Prunella Pullet, who acquiesces completely to his charms - much to the chagrin of her skinny boyfriend, Hick Rooster...

This is a very colorful & entertaining cartoon. Its highlight is a wild spoof of Hollywood dance musicals, from Rogers/Astaire (complete with "The Carioca") to a terpsichorean extravaganza even Busby Berkeley would be proud of.

The SILLY SYMPHONIES, which Walt Disney produced for a ten year period beginning in 1929, are among the most interesting of series in the field of animation. Unlike the Mickey Mouse cartoons in which action was paramount, with the Symphonies the action was made to fit the music. There was little plot in the early Symphonies, which featured lively inanimate objects and anthropomorphic plants & animals, all moving frantically to the soundtrack. Gradually, however, the Symphonies became the school where Walt's animators learned to work with color and began to experiment with plot, characterization & photographic special effects. The pages of Fable & Fairy Tale, Myth & Mother Goose were all mined to provide story lines and even Hollywood's musicals & celebrities were effectively spoofed. It was from this rich soil that Disney's feature-length animation was to spring. In 1939, with SNOW WHITE successfully behind him and PINOCCHIO & FANTASIA on the near horizon, Walt phased out the SILLY SYMPHONIES; they had run their course & served their purpose.
