We see the various birds, mice and bats that have moved into an old windmill, followed by the frogs, crickets and fireflies making their music in an adjacent pond. Then a storm comes, shaking loose parts in the mill and threatening everything we've seen.

By this stage, with their first full length feature in the pipeline, the studio had begun primarily using the Silly Symphonies as a testing ground for animation techniques. Far from harming the series, this actually resulted in the cartoons becoming even more breathtaking. The lack of narrative here is refreshing and all but unnoticeable amidst the groundbreakin"
