Originally part of the movie Make Mine Music, this cartoon was released later on its own as a theatrical short. Actually, it was first produced for Fantasia with classical music but was cut and made part of the later film. Here, the music is the song "Blue Bayou" performed by the Ken Darby Singers. It's good but I think the original piece intended for it, "Claire De Lune," works better. There's no story, really. It's just a sort of music video with the song played to a nighttime scene in a swamp. Overall, it's a lovely cartoon with pleasant animation and nice color. Nothing exceptional but enjoyable, particularly for classic Disney fans.
