Fantasia

Other mistake: In the intro to the Pastoral Symphony, the narrator identifies the deity who cloaks the world with Night to be Morpheus, who is the Greek god of sleep and dreams. However, the character in the animation is fairly obviously female, with long hair, eye shadow, and lipstick. My theory is that the character was intended by the art team to be Nyx, the Greek goddess of Night. Night would be a more likely candidate to be making it nighttime across the world, while Morpheus would be more likely to put people to sleep or send them dreams.

Trivia: When the film was released, critics and moviegoers had a difficult time appreciating it. Some say that the film was ahead of its time and too surreal for most people. It was not until the late 1960s that "Fantasia" received the respect and appreciation it deserved.
