From Ethanimation21 :

Can a spoof of Fantasia, one of the greatest animated films ever made ever really stand up to the original and be deserving of calling itself #47 among the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time? Maybe. Definitely not Clampett's best effort but still in interesting experiment. Tish-Tash and Bob Clampett show us that not even Disney at their best is safe from a good ribbing, you gotta love Elmer Fudd dressed as Deems Taylor in those oversized clothes, and is he wearing... A DICKIE!? They still make these? But seriously his lead-ins to both musical stories are great. Honestly it's hard to remember Elmer had a 5 o'clock shadow or even really notice it here, since most are so used to seeing him clean-saved. Both their takes on The Blue Danube and Tales of the Vienna Woods do a wonderful job at putting Disney through the wringer! To me, this is how Bugs Bunny's debut as Happy Hare should've gone off with Porky and Zero after his hide. I gotta say the way these are played out is amazingly funny, especially the ending to Takes of the Vienna woods, it still gets me in stitches! The Blue Danube is pretty fun as a take on The Ugly Duckling, a perfect mix if I do say, epically since Disney thought it was good enough to make into a Silly Symphony twice. Daffy here as a little black ducking is him at some of his best (or at least better than his Baby Looney Tunes incarnate) fighting back Beaky Buzzard in a big way! As are as it might've been to talk about something like this, I still say it desires the fame it gets; the satire hits every bullseye It can with some even making a u-turn to go right through! In short it's a fun little parody that deserves its acclaim and you should watch it, epscially since it's free online!
