Crop And Save
The Spider and the Fly (1931)
Sappy and predictable.
This is one of those sappy Silly Symphony cartoons featuring good-two-shoes characters going about their lives and banning together to defeat an adversity - in this case, a bunch of flies trying to rescue a damsel-in-distress from a spider.
A very predictable cartoon with no laughs and entertainment value.
Not too much to see here.
There is really not too much to see here, just a bunch of animals and nature stuff moving to music as Autumn approaches. Plenty of clever sound and visual effects, but not much in exciting entertainment value. But, if you're into just music and animation itself, than this cartoon is for you.
Susie the Little Blue Coupe (1952)
The original Cars!
This is a very neat Silly Symphony, following the life story about a little blue coupe named Susie. The plot takes you on an intriguing and entertaining look at the life of Susie, from her first purchase to her traffic adventures, and from her declining motor health to her stop on the junkyard.
The cartoon has great, colorful animation, and nice narration from Winnie-the-Pooh voice actor Sterling Holloway. There's also a nice mixture of comedy and touching moments. Great Silly Symphony!
Three Blind Mouseketeers (1936)
Boring, predictable, unremarkable - one of the worst Silly Symphonies.
This is a predictable, boring, and annoying cartoon starring three blind mouseketeers, who attempt to banish a cat from its quarters.
There's really nothing in this cartoon short that we haven't seen before. But, there is virtually no humor, unfunny slapstick stuff, unexciting scenes, and unremarkable characters. These three mice were not memorable and sang this really, really annoying song throughout the cartoon short. Their shouts of "one and one for all" were very cheesy.
Overall, this is clearly one of the worst Silly Symphonies.
Er yue san shi (1995)
Quite an exciting and thrilling HK supernatural analogy.
This is an anthology of stories all looped together into one entire horror movie, with a plot about a deceased fiancé, whose spirit returns to be with his beloved. died in an accident just before the wedding, comes back to be with her. And, in another story, a cop, who was in the coma, wakes up to find himself in another body.
The actors do deliver well in their roles, but the stories can be quite exciting and thrilling. But, it lacks a little substance and intrigue.
Lambert the Sheepish Lion (1952)
Nice little lion tale.
This is a nice little lion tale, where the delivery stork from the movie "Dumbo" mistakenly delivers a lion cub to a flock of sheep. As a result, the mother sheep raises the cub on her own.
It's a cleverly written and interesting story, and an exciting turn-of-events come when the mother sheep is chased by a wolf and the lion, though cowardly, has to think how to act.
The China Shop (1934)
Like a pre-Toy Story adventure.
This is like a pre-Toy Story adventure, where various figurines and mugs come to life in a China stop after the owner leaves. Some excitement and intriguing moments when a demonic figure captures an upper-class lady and then does battle with her lord.
A clever and imaginative story here, with all the shattering and clanging of dishes.
Peculiar Penguins (1934)
A sappy story, but some excitement.
Two penguins attempt to woo each other, but a dispute led the female to swim off, leaving the male down in the dumps. But, some excitement comes when the male tries to save the female from a hungry shark.
A pretty sappy story overall, but the shark chase gives the cartoon some intrigue. Some funny moments as well.
The Country Cousin (1936)
A silly cousin.
You get to tour the city this cartoon short, lead by Morty Citymouse. He takes his cousin Abner all around the city, resulting in some outrageous adventures and moments.
A few laughs here and some nicely done animation.
The Goddess of Spring (1934)
Clever retelling of the Greek mythology.
For some reason the animation in this cartoon doesn't make it appear to be a Disney Silly Symphony. Still, it's a pretty good cartoon that tells the story of the goddess Persephone, kidnapped by Hades, causing Spring to prematurely turn into Winter.
It's also a rather exciting cartoon short, as well, and a clever retelling of the Greek mythology. The narration and dialog were all beautifully sung and the characters were delightful to watch.
Egyptian Melodies (1931)
A plotless, low substance Silly Symphony.
This is a plotless Silly Symphony, where a spider makes his way in an ancient Egyptian tomb and witnesses mummies dancing and hieroglyphics move. That would have been an enchanting scene had there been Egyptian-style background music. Instead of that, jazzy-type music was used.
There's really no excitement or substance to this short. And, a spider as a main character is kind of awkward. Overall, one of the least entertaining, and downright boring, Silly Symphonies.
Babes in the Woods (1932)
A miniature fairytale.
This is quite a thrilling little fairytale, where two children stumble upon a village of gnomes in the woods. While they are friendly to the children, a witch suddenly arrives and kidnaps them.
The scenes where the children attempt to escape the witch's lair were quite exciting, as were the magic spells the witch casted. But, the gnomes' attempts to rescue the children and shower the witch with arrows were cheesy.
You could hardly make out the witch's dialog, whom is voiced by the actress that eventually voices the Evil Queen in Show White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Overall, not a bad tale. Reminds you a little of those full-length animated movies from Disney.
Toby Tortoise Returns (1936)
OK Sequel to Tortoise and the Hare
This sequel to the Tortoise and the Hare is a little amusing - a very nice throwback to the previous story.
The two animals takes boxing to a whole new level and the cartoon has some special cameos from past Silly Symphony characters. However, I think the Tortoise and the Hare take the sport a little too over-the-top, in the league of the over-imagination of the anti-wolf machines in the Three Little Pigs sequels.
Crazy stuff here, but definitely doesn't surprise the original story.
The Grasshopper and the Ants (1934)
A very nice cartoon about working hard and second chances.
This Silly Symphony is based on Aesop's Fable, The Ant and the Grasshopper. While the Grasshopper is all play and no work, an army of ants harvest food for the winter. And, when the freezing whether arrives, the ants enjoy a warm feast while the grasshopper goes hungry.
Disney added nice touches of animation, music, and voice acting (one whom you may recognize as later voicing Goofy), which all blended well with a good message of hard work, diligence, and second chances.
Water Babies (1935)
I wish I was as carefree as them.
In this cartoon, carefree baby water nymphs awaken from their slumber in the pond lilies and go about the day with musical activities until nightfall.
The cartoon has that refreshing, without-a-care-in-the-world atmosphere, just the type of world I would love to be in. However, the cartoon suffers from a lack of engaging plot and excitement. Not a very entertaining short overall, but it has some nice, morally sound parts to it, like the scene with the babies praying before they sleep.
Lullaby Land (1933)
A perfect lullaby cartoon.
Walt Disney was on a role with these Silly Symphonies, letting his imagination run wild with clever and miraculous sequences of magic. Here, a baby is transported to Lullaby Land while dreaming, where we see a display of pacifiers, diapers, bottles, and blankets come to life. We also see anti-babies stuff such as scissors, knives, fountain pens, and matches, which haunt the kid and his doll dog as well.
It is nice to include some baby-themed characters in the cartoon as well, including the Boogeyman and the Sandman. Neat stuff here.
Music Land (1935)
That's what I called a Silly Symphony.
A cleverly-made Silly Symphony, where two dueling lands of musical instruments go to war over the forbidden love between the children of the the Symphony Queen and the Jazz King.
Lots of interesting caricatures, from a metronome jailhouse to dueling notes firepower. And, the classical songs used in the plot, from Beethoven Minuet to Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, were a delight to listen to.
Not a bad cartoon, overall. A good mixture of music, action, and silliness.
Birds in the Spring (1933)
A wonderful and serene springtime story.
This is a very nice cartoon featuring two birds rejoicing over the birth of their three hatchlings. They are taught to sing and fly, yielding some funny reactions from the father bird. One hatchling wanders away from the nest and gets into some misadventures with grasshoppers, a rattlesnake, and a swarm of bees.
The animation and music in this short were just great, and the voice-overs of the birds by actors Marion Darlington and Purv Pullen were just brilliant.
A wonderful story about the birth of spring, free-spirit of nature, and the serenity of the day.
Little Hiawatha (1937)
A good Silly Symphony of heroism and compassion.
A small Indian child attempts to go hunting in the forest, but ultimately spares the life of a little bunny rabbit after cornering him. As a result, when he comes under attack by a ferocious bear, the forest animals return the favor and try to save him.
A nice little cartoon about compassion and heroism. It's full of excitement and thrills - a good Silly Symphony from Disney.
The Practical Pig (1939)
A very nice, final Three Little Pigs cartoon.
This is the third and last sequel to the Silly Symphony short, The Three Little Pigs, bringing back the three animals and the notorious Big Bad Wolf one final time for some forest thrills. This time, the wolf has captured two of the three little pigs and takes them to his lair to be cooked for dinner, but the wolf wants to capture the remaining pig, The Practical Pig, before cook time. But, the Three Little Wolves have devious plans of their own.
There are a some of thrills and excitement in this one, but the wolf-capturing-pigs plot element ran thin this time around, and the Practical Pig's inventions seem to run a little overboard in this one, but, it yielded some hilarious, laugh-out-loud comedy when tried out on the Big Bad Wolf.
Again, it's nice to hear a reprise of the song, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf."
Overall, a very nice final Three Little Pigs cartoon
Three Little Wolves (1936)
Another fun and hilarious sequel to The Three Little Pigs!
This is the second sequel to the Silly Symphony short, The Three Little Pigs, bringing back the three animals and the notorious Big Bad Wolf for even more forest fun and thrills. This time, the wolf, joined by his three children, the Three Little Wolves, are out to get the two carefree pigs for dinner, who seem to have learned nothing from their past encounters with the predator.
There are a good share of thrills and excitement in this one, especially in the part where the wolves capture the two devil-may-care pigs and places them on a dinner dish. And, the pigs' brother, the Practical Pig, using his wolf-proof invention on the Big Bad Wolf yielded some hilarious, laugh-out-loud results.
It's also very nice to hear a reprise of the song, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf."
Lots of laughs and fun. Great, entertaining one for the family.
Flowers and Trees (1932)
A serene piece of cartoon work.
This is a beautifully done award-winning animation short, with cleverly done sequences such as the trees and flowers waking up to the day and the characters sounding off the alarm after an old, grumpy tree stump starts a forest fire in a fit of jealous rage.
Wonderful serene music, including some recognizable tunes, as well.
The Cookie Carnival (1935)
A semi-sweet cartoon.
This is a semi-sweet cartoon, with a parade cookies trying to choose their next king and queen. The story is cleverly done with nice animation and interesting-looking characters. The songs and music were so-so.
The gingerbread man helping decorate the Cookie Girl was a sight reminiscent of that of Cinderella turning from rags to riches. And, clips of the kissing scene between the two cookies can be seen in promos of old Disney videos.
Johnny English Reborn (2011)
More fun and laughter with James Bond's comedic counterpart.
There's more fun and laughter in this sequel as Rowan Atkinson returns as MI7 agent Johnny English, tasked to help stop an assassination plot against the Chinese premier.
Filmed with fast-paced action and endless gags and humor, this film will send you loads of laughs and pure entertainment. The bumbling Johnny English teams up with the lesser bumbling Agent Tucker (Daniel Kaluuya) and the charming therapist Kate Sumner (Rosamund Pike); their chemistry were quite hilarious.
There's more action and edge-of-your-seat excitement in this one, from the Asian cleaning lady assassin to the mysterious key that is the center of all the chaos.
Overall, a very entertaining film - tastefully done gags with a good mixture of action and suspense.
The Big Bad Wolf (1934)
The Three Little Pigs meet Little Red Riding Hood.
This is a sequel to the Silly Symphony short, The Three Little Pigs, bringing back the three animals and the notorious Big Bad Wolf for some more forest fun and thrills. This time, the wolf is out to get Little Red Riding Hood, who is out visiting her Granny. Therefore, the Three Little Pigs try to intervene to save the day.
Great merger of the two stories into one cartoon and great music that is nostalgic of the first Three Little Pigs cartoon, especially a nice reprise of "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf," sung to some very serene violin sounds.
Lots of laughs and fun. Great, entertaining one for the family.
