Allegro non troppo ("not so fast") is a 1977 animated film by Italian director Bruno Bozzetto, employing classical compositions as its soundtrack - a parody of Disney's Fantasia. As opposed to Fantasia, Allegro non troppo is more cynical and adult-oriented, but not without humor. Both films offer a fun introduction to classical music.


With apologies to Signor Bozzetto, here are links to the film's segments, which someone has kindly (and illegally) uploaded to YouTube.
