To Spring (1936)

To Spring, a Harman and Ising cartoon made in 1936 for Metro Goldwyn Mayer. The colors. The rhymes and music. The saga of a new season! The imagination. From Wikipedia:

“This short begins with the melting of winter snow as little human-like creatures (either elves or gnomes) below the ground mine colorful crystals.”


“The creatures then process the crystals into liquids that cover the main rainbow colors. This work incites the arrival of spring above on the surface. However, a snowy wind appears and causes issues that hinders the process as the creatures start working harder. In the end, the creatures prevail and spring occurs.”
