Time for Love is a Fleischer Studios film directed by Dave Fleischer and distributed by Paramount Pictures. It was released on September 6, 1935 as part of the Color Classics series. [1]


The cartoon focuses on a couple of mute swans who love each other. A greedy and stubborn black swan attracts the female mute swan, who decides to go with him, rather than the male mute swan, leaving him depressed. Later on, the black swan abuses his mate when she fails to catch a fish. The female mute swan distracts him when she gives him a frog. She runs with the black swan in pursuit. She finds her mate, and the male mute swan protects her and fights the black swan. The male mute swan is triumphant, and the black swan loses and runs off. After everything is over, the female mute swan regret her foolish mistake she made and returns to her old lover, who forgives her. Then, the couple live a happy ending together.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Trumpeter swan</span> Species of bird

The trumpeter swan is a species of swan found in North America. The heaviest living bird native to North America, it is also the largest extant species of waterfowl, with a wingspan of 185 to 304.8 cm. It is the American counterpart and a close relative of the whooper swan of Eurasia, and even has been considered the same species by some authorities. By 1933, fewer than 70 wild trumpeters were known to exist, and extinction seemed imminent, until aerial surveys discovered a Pacific population of several thousand trumpeters around Alaska's Copper River. Careful reintroductions by wildlife agencies and the Trumpeter Swan Society gradually restored the North American wild population to over 46,000 birds by 2010.
