October 1, 1932 – The Silly Symphony Bugs in Love is Released to Theaters
On October 1, 1932, the Silly Symphony Bugs in Love was released to theaters. It was directed by Burt Gillett.
There’s a small fair set up for the bugs of the dump, and they are enjoying themselves on several rides created through pieces of trash. A band plays music using safety pins, and a mirror is used for a skating rink, with talcum powder being used for snow. Two bugs are skating on their own private rink, sharing a kiss. The girl heads home and the boy calls for her, drawing a heart for her on a nearby box. A crow spots the pair and eyes them hungrily. The two bugs profess their love for each other, and the crow breaks through the box and starts chasing after them, laughing maniacally. He chases the girl into her house and trashes the place after trapping the boy in a bottle. The boy manages to break out and grabs an arrow from an old clock to attack the crow. A passerby notices the danger and sounds the alarm, alerting all the bugs to the crow’s appearance, and they grab whatever weapons they can to attack the crow. They cover the crow in paste and ink, and bite him with an old pair of dentures before attacking him with a whisk and a mousetrap. They catch him in an old shoe and force him to drink castor oil. Finally out of danger, the girl bug and boy bug reunite, sharing a kiss as everyone watches.
