Comments

From Jerry Edwards : While nicely done, I just can't get interested in the characters. I also dislike boxing, resulting in a "loser" short for me.
From Chris : An average silly symphony, with some of the strangest dance maneuvers I've ever seen undertaken by the characters. But I'd recommend it.
From Baruch Weiss : My, isn't it amazing how Disney makes a cartoon like this and yet it wasn't banned because of the chicken constantly holding a cigar in his mouth. Anyway, great cartoon the music was nice and I enjoyed all those scenes of the poultry dancing!
