Another one of Walt Disney’s animated features comprised of little musical shorts, this one has the distinction of concentrating more on classical pieces than the more jazzier selections in Melody Time (though there is still the cool jazz number “All the Cats Joined In”). A highlight here is a story about an opera-singing whale that is destroyed by human ignorance, but probably the most famous piece in the film is “Peter And The Wolf”, which was later released independently as a short. Beautiful animation as always, but watching all the shorts together is a bit tiring.
