Ain’t Nature Grand! (1931)

Ain't Nature Grand! ReviewAin’t Nature Grand! Review

 Ain’t Nature Grand! is a 1931 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is an uneven, solid entry.

Bosko dances with the butterflies until two ladybugs drive him away. The problem with this cartoon is that it is too reminiscent to Disney’s Silly Symphony series, mostly the entry ‘The Spider and the Fly‘. Both share the insect cavalry in a very similar manner. And that I didn’t like here because it was obviously influenced by Disney and I like Looney Tunes when they are their own thing.

With that being said, I still liked Ain’t Nature Grand! I mostly liked the first half as it was much more inspired than the second one with a couple of really inventive moments. I loved everything in that beginning and that was the highlight to me. The chase between a bird and a worm was prolonged surely, but it was so funny and visually amusing that it was worth it. And I found Bosko sparing the worm heartwarming.

Ain’t Nature Grand! definitely has such an amusing first half, but the second one is too much like Disney in its action and dancing.

 My Rating – 3.5
