June 27, 1930 – The Silly Symphony Arctic Antics is Released to Theaters


On June 27, 1930, the Silly Symphony Arctic Antics was released to theaters. It was directed by Ub Iwerks.

A polar bear cub is dancing about between the back of a polar bear and sheets of ice, followed by a parade of other polar bears and seals. One polar bear cub uses its tail to drive him forward on a sheet of ice like a speedboat. A walrus is seen chasing a fish, who jumps about, teasing it. A group of seals clap as they watch a female do a balancing act and dance with a fish, while another seal uses a walrus to create music before being chased off by the walrus, who wishes to sing instead. The seals applaud the walrus’ efforts before a troop of penguins marches on the scene, waddling in unison. One small penguin falls through the ice, but manages to quickly rejoin the group before they whistle their marching tune behind a large iceberg.
