Storyline

Elmer brings flowers to Tillie Tiger's sixth birthday party. She leaves for a moment, and all the other animals mock Elmer's trunk. He leaves, and encounters a wise old giraffe. Meanwhile, Tillie's treehouse catches fire, and the monkeys fighting it aren't very effective. Elmer, the giraffe, and a few pelicans unite to put out of the fire and rescue Tillie.

Cute Characters Make This Watchable

Elmer Elephant (1936)

*** (out of 4)

A cute little tiger is having a birthday party and everyone is having a blast. A sweet elephant shows up and gives her flowers, which steals her heart but the rest of the kids there plan on picking on the elephant due to his large nose. This is another good Disney short that falls just short of being a classic but it's still worth watching. There are quite a few good things here with the highlight certainly being the characters who are just downright adorable. Both the tiger and elephant make for a cute couple and there's no question that the ending is extremely sweet. I thought the bullies were all done well and especially the hippo and that wonderful voice. The animation is quite good as you'd expect and overall it's a pretty good movie even if its story isn't all that great.
