The Show Must Go On

Fire is destroying Andy Panda’s piano but he is determined to finish Chopin’s Fantasie Impromptu Opus 66.

Woody and effects animator Sid Pillet are a little late, but they put out the fire. It's a musical triumph!

La Verne Harding and Les Kline are the credited animators in Musical Moments from Chopin, released in February 1947. Ben Hardaway and Milt Schaffer provided the story, with Ted Saidenberg and Ed Rebner providing the piano music under the direction of Darrell Calker.

Only six Miniatures were made before Walter Lantz temporarily suspended operations. They all have something to enjoy; this one has the drunken horse on the barn rafters.

    Is it sheer coincidence that Andy looks like Walter Lantz in the last frame?
