  2. Vicious villain causes horrifying havoc only to meet a brutal and grisly end. Yep, that’s Disney children’s fare formula. 😮

    Fan-dancing lady tree. Blackface daisies. Lecherous old stump. Animators at play. This was only four years after Steamboat Willie, the first talkie cartoon. They were still enamored of being able to make the pictures fit the music.

    “Flowers and Trees was already in production as a black-and-white cartoon before Walt Disney saw Herbert Kalmus’ three-strip Technicolor tests. Deciding that Flowers and Trees would make a perfect test for the process, he had the black-and-white footage scrapped, and had the short redone in color. The color Flowers and Trees was a commercial and critical success, winning the first Academy Award for Animated Short Subjects.”
