The Old Mill (1937) — Silly Sym­phonies The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Var­i­ous birds, mice and bats take up res­i­dence in an old wind­mill. Frogs, crick­ets and fire­flies make their music in an adja­cent pond. A storm slowly approaches, build­ing sus­pense. The wind turns the mill’s blades, which turn gears inside the mill. A small bird is nest­ing with eggs in a gear hole, and a cog threat­ens to crush them.
