Trivia

The shower scene from "All the Cats Join In" and the featured silhouette of a naked teenage girl were considered controversial in the 1940s. The Production Code Administration thought it violated the Hays Code and wanted the scene cut. The Disney studio was admonished, but the scene was retained. See more »

Goofs

In the segment "All the Cats Join In", when the blonde teenage boy and brunette teenage girl in their car pick up their first passenger, a brown haired teenage hitchhiker boy, their car is speeding so fast that his shoes fall off when he is picked up. Yet in the next shot of the car, the hitchhiker boy can be seen in the back seat of the car with his feet propped up and his shoes are back on his feet. See more »

Pop and jazz second-cousin to "Fantasia"
29 July 2006 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Chocolate-box potpourri of Disney-animated shorts became Walt Disney's eighth animated theatrical feature, one that plays like a middling excuse to allow the studio's animators to blow off some creative steam. Divvied up into separate musical suites (utilizing pop, jazz, Big Band, and the Russian classical piece "Peter and the Wolf"), "Make Mine Music" is musically of its time, featuring the talents of Benny Goodman, Dinah Shore, Nelson Eddy, etc. In that regard, it dates far worse than "Fantasia", and comes to a virtual halt in the middle of an overstretched slapstick baseball satire, but there are incidental pleasures. The popular "Peter and the Wolf" segment, which was later serialized on Disney's TV program and found a large following, is the only segment that feels fully thought-out (and has involving animation), while "The Whale Who Wanted To Sing At The Met" is an interesting idea (with beautiful flourishes) in search of a narrative (the hero actually ends up in Heaven...complete with angel's wings!). Followed by "Melody Time", which featured more storytelling and less abstract whimsy. ** from ****
