Springtime (1929)

Springtime ReviewSpringtime Review

 Springtime is a 1929 Disney short film in the Silly Symphony series. It is a wild, albeit typical short.

In Springtime, we see a lot of the trees and animals join in a joyful celebration of the spring that has just arrived. It is one of those typical Silly Symphonies where there is no plot or characterization to be had whatsoever and where it was just an excuse for the animators to put as much music and crazy animation and gags as possible.

It isn’t one of the most memorable entries of its time, but it surely is solid owing to its wild approach and many memorable creatures and plants depicted. I liked the score quite a bit and the dances are for once solidly utilized and not as boring as they are in the other entries from this period. The ending is a lot of fun and I liked the character design here.

Springtime is typical for the time period, but quite solid thanks to its good score and very good animation.

 My Rating – 3.5
