In Beaver Valley

Another of Walt Disney's True-Life Adventures features a glimpse of nature's own engineer hard at work in the wild. A young male beaver finds himself the head of his own family after successfully wooing a female and her kit, then quickly goes to work building a suitable home before winter arrives. Pressure mounts as a hungry coyote sets his sights on the young family, and a rollicking bevy of playful river otters threatens to derail construction. This 1950 Academy Award®-winning short also includes the ill-fated journey of salmon returning to lay their eggs and a musical interlude featuring the "soulful serenade of the lovelorn frogs." This programme is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.
