Very cute silly symphony, not the best of the lot, but worth a look? Absoluetly.
18 September 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I really liked this silly symphony. I did think it had one or two dull spots, hence my rating, but you cannot deny it is a very cute and charming short. The animation is very very nice, and the snow scenes were in particular beautifully done. The three kittens were absolutely adorable, definitely the stars of the short, and the music is beautiful. There are some lovely scenes, the part when the kitten start playing about on the keys of the piano was my favourite. What I meant by one or two dull spots was that, the short does start off quite slowly. And it's not my favourite silly symphony of 1935, The Band Concert gets that honour.

Overall, very cute and worth a look. 9/10 Bethany Cox
