Woodland Café is a Silly Symphonies animated Disney short film. It was filmed in Technicolor and released by United Artists in 1937 and was re-issued by RKO Radio Pictures in 1948. While it contained no on-screen credits, Wilfred Jackson was the director and Leigh Harline was the musical director.[1]


The setting is a nightclub staffed and frequented entirely by bugs. The cartoon is broken into three sections.

In the first, the patrons are shown arriving, putting their hats, gloves, and canes to the check-in counter, before getting to their tables and being served; the lighting is provided by fireflies; a jazz band is playing a number - with a brief instrumental battle with a tuba player and a trumpeter, a cellist shooing the leaf-eating bugs from chewing on his big cello, a trombonist having an itchy backside as he improvises a way to continue playing, and a drummer playing his full set, two groups of dancers with the male species almost ready to tussle with each other, a group of trombonists and trumpeters alternately their part of the music before the whole band followed up; and a centipede waiter served out some cherry wine to the patrons from a singular whole cherry.

The second features a performance of a French Apache dance as a good-girl fly resists the advances of a bad-boy spider until he gets caught in his own web and tangled himself up. The fly is now plays the bad girl at the end of the dance.

Finally, everyone jams the dance floor, including the old bee and his red ant partner as they were smoking the floor, even the snails dancing the section a little slower, as the orchestra plays (and sings) "Everybody's Truckin'" in the style of Cab Calloway on their instruments made of flowers.


The bugs that were eating the cricket's cello resembled that of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.

In the edited version, the ending part of the "Apache Dance" and part of "Everybody's Truckin'" was cut out due to racial stereotypes.

The short was released on the 2001 Walt Disney Treasures DVD box set Silly Symphonies.[1]
