Reviews and Comments

From Baruch Weiss :

My personal favorite segment from 'Melody Time' is this one. Like the 1944 classic Springtime for Pluto (which surprisingly didn't win an Academy  Award) it had great music, background art, and animation.

From Honora :

This is such a beautiful short. There used to be a wonderful show on the Disney Channel late late at night called the "Ink and Paint Club" - before it was loaded with the contemporary trash it's packed with now. "Trees" was shown from time to time and was an example of animation as art at its finest. Amazing color, depth, artwork, no sound other than music (maybe bird chirps). I loved this, we all did. My children and I really miss the Ink and Paint Club.
