Nice, but at the same time nothing to rave about
26 May 2012 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I have always enjoyed Disney Silly Symphonies, and while I did like Arctic Antics I don't consider it one of their masterpieces. It is nice, but not really anything to rave about. It does lack cohesion, if you're willing to forget that polar bears and penguins live on the other side of the world and that polar bears eat penguins you'll be fine, if not then that's my point. The cartoon doesn't really have any story to speak of and doesn't really get going pace-wise until the penguins are introduced and apart from the major set piece it's basically just nice to watch but not much else or new. However the animation is of the fluid and smooth kind, with the way a seal is drawn while underwater, the music is of great energy and sounds absolutely beautiful and the dancing while not as inspired as other Silly Symphonies is well choreographed with some very interesting use of motion such as animals floating in the foreground and others staying put in the background. The characters are very cute too, I especially liked the Mickey Mouse-like polar bear. All in all, not a special cartoon or a masterpiece, but nice all the same. 7/10 Bethany Cox
