Saturday Morning Cartoons: A Silly Spring Celebration
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Temperatures are projected to be in the 70s this weekend in New York, so for this week's Saturday morning cartoon, we present Amilcare Ponchielli’s "Dance of the Hours" from his opera La Gioconda.
This piece was featured in Walt Disney’s 1929 "Springtime" cartoon from the Silly Symphonies series (which, oddly, was released in the fall). While you may not see this exact scene play out in Central Park, it'll certainly get you in the mood for venturing outdoors this weekend.
