Concerto is an American animated short produced by Leon Schlesinger
Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. It was directed by Bob
Clampett, written by Frank Tashlin, animated by Robert McKimson and
released as part of the Merrie Melodies series on September 25, 1943. A
parody of Disney's 1940 feature Fantasia, the film uses two of Johann
Strauss' best known waltzes, Tales from the Vienna Woods and The Blue
Danube, adapted by the cartoon unit's music director, Carl Stalling and
orchestrated by its arranger and later, Stalling's successor, Milt
Franklyn. Long considered a classic for its sly humor and impeccable
timing with the music, it was voted #47 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of
all time by members of the animation field in 1994. The title, in tune
with the name of the unit's other cartoon series, Looney Tunes, suggests
another Disney titling parody, that of the pioneering series Silly

Can you give a link to the content ID since a lot of sites on the web say this is in the PD?
