Comments

From Rod Bennett : This one is a virtual remake of The Spider and the Fly, with the crow taking over where the spider left off.
From Jerry Edwards : Last Silly Symphony in black and white. As already mentioned, basically just a remake of The Spider and the Fly. One fun bit is the assorted junk used as amusement park rides for the bugs.
From Ryan : This short's opening title is rather different from that of other Disney shorts. Instead of the copyright being printed in Roman numerals, it is printed out in numbers. Several bugs are at a local dump where they have constructed a bug-size playground. A crow comes and tries to eat some of the bugs. One part that is rather unusual for a Disney short is that a female character rescues her boyfriend rather than it being the other way around. This is a wonderful cartoon with exceptional animation.
