Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Meet the original wizards who put the magic in the Magic Kingdom. A must for animation buffs, this two-disc set unearths a treasure trove of promotional films, a rarely seen feature, and entertaining television specials in which Walt Disney and his staff of legendary animators reveal how they create cartoons. The highlight of this collection is "The Reluctant Dragon" (1941), in which humorist Robert Benchley gets a tour of Walt Disney Studios. The animated sequences include the Goofy cartoon "How to Ride a Horse," the charming "Baby Weems," and "The Reluctant Dragon." Disc 1 also contains "A Trip Through the Walt Disney Studios" and "How Walt Disney Cartoons Are Made," which were created to hype Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Disc 2 contains three episodes from the 1950s TV series Disneyland. Though they aired in black-and-white, they were filmed in color and are presented here in that format. Film critic and historian Leonard Maltin's introductions offer further fascinating background into these entertaining programs. Kids may not appreciate the technical stuff, but they'll love the vintage cartoons and archival rarities. The episode "The Plausible Impossible," for example, unearths a sequence deleted from Snow White. Also recommended for Disney aficionados are the two-disc sets The Complete Goofy and Mickey Mouse in Black and White.
