ABSTRACT Disney broke away from gag-centered cartoons in favor of fantasy narrative in his Silly Symphony cartoon series, produced in the 1930s. In landmark Symphonies such as The Ugly Duckling, Babes in the Woods, Lullaby Land, Who Killed Cock Robin?, and Three Little Pigs he explores with remarkable potency the inner life of the child—dramatizing the child's issues of separation, sense of shame, struggle to control impulses, fear of annihilation, and love of adventure.
