A nightclub, staffed and frequented entirely by insects. Lighting provided by fireflies, card games dealt by centipedes. The stage show has a good girl beetle resisting the advances of a bad-boy spider. Everyone dances, even the snails, as the orchestra plays jazz on their instruments made of flowers. Written by

This short features bugs on a night out in a tree filled with centipede waiters, grasshopper bands, and spider theater villains. The entire short is fueled by the music, which is typical of the Silly Symphonies brand, but while it initially showed a little bit of promise it got boring in the middle. Without a single character to focus on and to tell a story with many Silly Symphonies end up being quite forgettable.
The animation is bright, colorful, and imaginative, and it even has a bit of dialogue/singing from the Jazz-singing grasshoppers. There's not much to it other than this.
