Storyline

It's autumn and the squirrels are busy collecting nuts for the winter. One squirrel is determined to shake the last nut from an otherwise barren tree. When he finally does so, it proves not to be a nut at all, but a caterpillar that was trying to become a butterfly. The squirrels are collecting corn cobs too, but a crafty crow is not above stealing them out of the squirrels' tree. The crow brings them back to his fellows, where they store them in a scarecrow's long underwear. A skunk is having bad luck trying to shove an oversized pumpkin through an undersized tree hole and succeeds only in smashing it to bits. A porcupine has a clever way to collect apples: on his quills. The beavers bark and dance happily as they build their dam. The ducks quack merrily as they eat worms. Then winter approaches and all the animals must find shelter. Some will find it easier than others. Written by J. Spurlin

Animated splendour in Disney's tribute to Autumn
14 October 2009 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Autumn was lovely to watch, with stunning black and white animation, that still holds up well after 70+ years. The music is beautiful, especially with the effect of the falling leaves. The characters were a delight, and brought some both funny and subtle touches to the short's proceedings. True, the short doesn't really have a plot, but with everything else so good, one is obliged to overlook. The Silly Symphony is one of four shorts that pay tribute to the Four Seasons in the Silly Symphony franchise. All of them are very funny and charming in their own way, and this is evidence of that. All in all, splendid. 10/10 Bethany Cox
