| A Silly Symphony indeed.
A Silly Symphony about a bunch of moths, who invade a costume shop and makes food out of the clothes and accessories. Soon, a live flame tries to make nice with a lady moth, which leads to a fire that almost consumes the entire shop. What results are some moth vs. flame sequences and a moth saves moth scene.
