The result is thoroughly delightful. The reasons for its success lie in Disney's own unfettered animal spirits, his ability to be childlike without being childish.

Smple, uncluttered, straight-forward fun.

The standout song goes to Harris, a rhythmic 'Bare Necessities' extolling the value of a simple life and credited to Terry Gilkyson.

A serious disappointment, recommended only for inveterate Disney fans and very young people.

It's also got great knockabout visual gags, mercifully little cutey-poo sentiment, and reasonable songs.
