Amazingly enough this masterpiece, which combines classic music and animated skits, was a failure and a controversy. It was probably because people at the time thought Dinosaurs, Mickey Mouse and naked centaurs in the same movie seemed like a bit much. Yet, the animation is still wonderful after all these years. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is the funniest and the most memorable of the seven short animated films. Deems Taylor's narration seems to be the only thing that's boring in the film. He sounds like one of those old school film narrators.

You will find dancing mushrooms, demons and dancing hippos, set to classical music by Beethoven, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky and Dukas. The film was a major success in the 1960's, because some of the animation seemed to be very much like LSD trips. Fantasia is a treat for the eyes and ears, and is most especially a family film.
