Celebrate Easter with Funny Little Bunnies

A few years ago, I endeavored to watch all of Walt Disney’s 75 Silly Symphonies cartoons in chronological order of release.  It was a fun and enriching project for me, and I came out of it with several favorites.  Among them was Funny Little Bunnies (1934).  I thought watching it again today would be a great way to celebrate Easter.

This is a cartoon that inspires mixed reviews from animation fans.  Some say that it’s saccharine and devoid of plot, while others say that it is, in fact, a very subtle political cartoon exploring Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal programs.  Whether you think it’s either of those things, I hope you can delight in the animation and cartoon humor.  I particularly love the patterned cans of paint.
