Where to begin, the stunning animation or the beautiful music?
1 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of my favourite shorts featured on "Make Mine Music" along with "Willie the Operatic Whale", "All the Cats Join In" and "Peter and the Wolf". There is no dialogue or plot, like "Trees", but it is a tranquil and relaxing watch. I don't know where to begin praising the short.

For one thing the animation is gorgeous. The blue backgrounds were pristine and perfect, and the storks's movements were convincing. The music is another high point, complete with sublime vocals, with poetic lyrics and a lyrical and sensual melody.

Overall, I loved "Blue Bayou", just wonderful to watch. 10/10 Bethany Cox
