Fastpass to History: Silly Symphonies

Silly

A recent trip to California Adventure (don’t miss our giveaway, click here) and a ride on the Silly Symphony Swings brought back my memories of these great cartoons.   I remembered a few of them, but how many were made?

The Silly Symphonies were a series of animated shorts produced by Walt Disney Productions.   75 shorts were made between 1929 and 1939, or one every couple of months on average.   A few of our favorite Disney Characters made their debut in these symphonies such as Donald Duck in The Wise Little Hen (1934) and our favorite pal Pluto in Just Dogs (1932)

These Symphonies were Walt’s playground to experiment with new techniques before introducing them into the much more labor intensive movies.   Today the complete collection can be owned in a DVD series “Silly Symphonies” and “More Silly Symphonies”.   What is your favorite Symphony?
