Bumble Boogie is an animated short and the second segment from Disney's 1948 (10th) animated feature film Melody Time and the 1955 reissue, Contrasts in Rhythm.


A surrealistic nightmare for a solitary, tiny, aghast, fast and desparate bumblebee actually known as Bumble (to a boogie-woogie version of Flight of the Bumblebee) trying to escape the visual display and imminent harmony of a musical frenzy. He is being attacked by flowers and butterflies made of piano keys, flowers made of trumpets (plus fireworks from repeated animation), snakes made of piano keys, the piano hammers hitting the "strings" of the sheet music, running piano keys diving on water and falling piano keys. Bumble has put all of the piano keys back together where it is and the piano is restored at the end of the segment.



  • The music for this animated segment is courtesy of Freddy Martin and His Orchestra (with Jack Fina playing the piano) and is a swing-jazz variation of Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee, which was one of the many pieces considered for inclusion in Fantasia.
