Saturday Morning Cartoons: A Nutcracker Suite Garden Party

Email a Friend

For this week’s Saturday Morning cartoon we get into the holiday spirit with music from the second act of Tchaikovsky’s beloved Nutcracker ballet.

These dances are featured in “Nutcracker Suite,” a segment of Disney’s 1940 film Fantasia, where instead of the land of sweets, we are in a magical garden of dancing flowers, fish and fairies.
