Storyline

The farm comes to life, to various classical tunes. The high point is a rooster serenading a chicken, with all the animals joining in. But then comes the sound that's even more welcome to the animals: the farmer and his wife with food (the only actual words spoken). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Wonderful animation but a rather off-putting story today.
13 January 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1930s, cartoons were chock full of singing animals and little in the way of humor. One notable exception were the Disney cartoons with Mickey and his friends. However, the studio also made a ton of the so-called "Silly Symphonies"--cartoons set to music that in some cases don't hold up so well today (some notable exceptions being "The Three Little Pigs" and "The Ugly Duckling"--among others). I am not sure if these singing cartoons are what people wanted or if studios just thought that's what they wanted, as this sort of singing film practically disappeared by 1940. Until then, MGM, Looney Tunes and the rest were all making rather insipid singing cartoons.

This film consists of animals and farmers around the farm singing and making music while going about their daily routine. There really isn't much more to it than that, though you can see a creepy rooster chasing a chicken as he's trying to have his way with her. Not particularly enjoyable and a bit strange.
