"Disney's 'Ferdinand the Bull' is a charming little fable about a peace-loving bull who refuses to get drawn into the juvenile antics of the preening matadors. Based on the children's book 'The Story of Ferdinand' by Munro Leaf, 'Ferdinand the Bull' continued to display Disney's ever improving artistry in the studio's short films, even as they poured so much attention into the forthcoming 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. It also shows a left-wing message of peace from a studio that is often unf"

"DIR: Dick Rickard SUMMARY: A pacifist bull who wants only to sit and smell the flowers is drafted into a bull fight by matadors who mistakenly believe him to be a ferocious beast. WHY IT'S HERE: 'Ferdinand the Bull' is a gorgeous, leisurely paced fable with a message of peace which delivers on the tremendous artwork that the previous year's 'Old Mill' had promised but also highlights improvements in storytelling technique and comedic character design and animation. Based on the book by Munro"

Best Animated Short - Winners and My Choices (82 movies items)

"WINNER: Ferdinand the Bull Other nominees: Brave Little Tailor Mother Goose Goes Hollywood Good Scouts Hunky and Spunky MY CHOICE: 'Brave Little Tailor'. What an amazing year for Disney, with four nominations. Fleischers Studios rubbish 'Hunky and Spunky' really didn't stand a chance, although it spawned a short series of cartoons also starring the dismal donkeys. Of the four Disney nominees, only the so-so Donald Duck cartoon 'Good Scouts' is less than brilliant. The winner, 'Ferdi"
