Almost too good to be included in "Melody Time".
2 February 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a short that was used to make up the full-length film from Disney, "Melody Time". Following WWII, Disney Studio was a mess--a terrible strike and the war (where many of the workers were drafted and many more were assigned to wartime animation work) decimated the studio and many of the old animators were gone. As a result, Disney did not get back to making traditional animated feature films for several years. In the meantime, their 'full-length' films were really odd compilations of shorts--and of a rather lackluster quality compared to earlier and later work.

Little Toot is a rather rambunctious and annoying little anthropomorphic tugboat. His goofy ways get him in trouble with other ships, such as his Dad, Big Toot. As a result of his bad ways, he's banished far off-shore and is frightened. Can he somehow redeem himself?! While this short is like the others in "Melody Time" because of all the singing (this time by the Andrews Sisters), it is quite different when it comes to the animation. The backgrounds and characters are much more detailed and richly animated--making this an exceptionally fine looking short film. In fact, it's almost too good for the otherwise lackluster film! I did not love the singing, but otherwise it was a lovely film.
