It's A Silly Symphony Summer

It's Midsummer's Eve and what Disney film could be better suited to kick off the festivities than the black and white Summer? The short was animated and directed by Ub Iwerks in his classic Silly Symphony style and features a menagerie of dancing insects including centipedes, butterflies, dung beetles, a dragonfly and a name a few.

Originally released on January 06, 1930, it would be the same year that Iwerks left Walt's employment to go work for competitor Pat Powers. And in just seven more short years, the Disney Studio would go from this lovable, but humble style of animation to the brilliance that is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!

  1. Hey, this is Bob from Allure. Glad you liked my Davis post. Wanted to send you a couple of early Dell comic covers for Snow White cause I can't find them on your blog (I may have missed them), but can't find an email for you. If you contact me through my email (on my blog) I will send them to you just in case you don't have them.
