Best Animation Movies of 1937
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
A beautiful girl, Snow White, takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, the wicked Queen. The Queen is jealous because she wants to be known as "the fairest in the land," and Snow White's beauty surpasses her own.
The Old Mill
We see the various birds, mice, and bats that have moved into an old windmill, followed by the frogs, crickets, and fireflies making their music in an adjacent pond. Then a storm comes, shaking loose parts in mill and threatening everything we've seen.
Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are cleaning a large clock. Among the complications: Mickey fights a sleeping stork that doesn't want to leave, Donald gets tangled up in the main-spring, and Goofy is inside the bell when the clock strikes four.
Four bored ghosts in a haunted house who've scared everyone away call up Ghost Hunters Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in hopes to have a little fun scaring them off.

Popeye the Sailor, accompanied by Olive Oyl and Wimpy, is dispatched to stop the dreaded bandit Abu Hassan and his force of forty thieves.
To the toccata portion of Bach's "Toccata and fugue in D minor," we watch a play of sorts. Blue smoke forms a background; a grid of black lines is the foreground. Behind the lines, a triangle appears, then patterns of multiple triangles. Their movements reflect the music's rhythm. Behind the barrier of the black lines, the triangle moves, jumps, and takes on multiple shapes. In contrast with the blue and the black, the triangles are warm: orange, red, yellow. The black lines bend, swirl into a vortex, then disappear. The triangle pulsates and a set of many of them rises.
My Artistical Temperature
Popeye and Bluto share an art studio; Popeye is a sculptor, and Bluto paints. Olive drops in for a likeness, and the boys compete. When they start to fight, Olive starts to leave, but Popeye convinces her to stay when he eats his spinach and vanquishes Bluto.

Mickey is a stage magician, and Goofy is a stagehand. Donald is sitting in a box seat, and soon starts heckling.

Ultimately, Donald gets hold of Mickey's flare gun and literally brings the house down on all three of them.
