Storyline

It's spring, and the flowers, mushrooms, and trees do their calisthentics. Some trees play a tune, using vines for harp strings and a chorus of robins. A nasty looking hollow tree does battle with a much healthier-looking tree for the attentions of a female tree, and starts a fire in the process. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Even after almost 70 years, it's an incredible piece of art!
3 January 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This won the very first Academy Award given for animated short and even after close to 69 years, it is still a marvel to behold. It quite justifiably won its praise at the time and is one of Disney's high points. Everything about this is excellent: story, music, characterization, plot, layout, visuals-everything! Periodically, this is run on the Ink and Paint Club on the Disney Channel and should be out on video. Apparently the powers that make the decisions for The Mouse don't see a point in releasing shorts on home video. Such a shame to have such remarkable material out of circulation. *sigh* The winner, on points. Most highly recommended.
