Not my favourite Christmas short, but an entertaining one at that!
24 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of my two criticisms of this short, is that the animation does look dated, one or two of the backgrounds are a little lifeless compared to the animation in some of the Disney films we have been blessed with over the years. Another criticism is that there is nothing in particular that will hugely interest those who are looking for a good plot. Still, I found this really entertaining. The antics of Donald Duck made this short, his teasing of Pluto is one of the short's main focuses, and the part when Pluto who doesn't realise he's got ice skates on slips on the ice causing Donald to laugh hysterically. I also loved the parts, when Mickey teaches Minnie to skate and when the fish take their own back on Goofy when they think he's trying to kill them. Another element that was impressive was the soundtrack, especially the wonderful Skaters' Waltz (sorry I can't remember the name of the composer, but it'd definitely not Strauss, though it's a VERY similar style)with its lyrical, dance-like feel. Overall, an entertaining short, but not Silly Symphonies' best. 8/10 Bethany Cox.
