The Goddess of Spring is a Silly Symphonies animated Disney short film. It was released in 1934.


Persephone, the Goddess of spring is greeted by dancing flowers and fairies. The God Hades, ruler of the Underworld, comes and takes her away to be his queen. She is despondent, as winter settles in above ground. But Hades is not happy either, and offers anything to make her happy. They reach an agreement: she will spend six months above ground and six below. Thus we have seasons.
