Overview

This collection of vintage animation from Walt Disney Studios, which follows the career of Mickey Mouse from 1939 to 1995, gets a deluxe presentation for its release on DVD. The cartoons on Mickey Mouse in Living Color: Volume Two (1939-Today) have been transferred to disc in their original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1, and the audio has been mastered in a format reflecting the original sound mix of the source material (most are in Dolby Digital Mono, some in Dolby Digital Stereo). A wide variety of bonus material has been included with this release, such as deleted material from Mickey's " Sorcerer's Apprentice" sequence in Fantasia, seven different short behind-the-scenes documentaries on different aspects of making the classic Mickey Mouse cartoons, galleries of rare publicity and production artwork, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One of America’s most enduring and beloved icons gets the star treatment with this second volume of vintage color cartoons spanning the years 1939-53. The period is an especially interesting one, as the enthusiastic and encyclopedic host, Leonard Maltin, observes in his introduction, for Mickey Mouse's classic cartoons were in the past at this point. By the WWII era, he was playing straight mouse to Pluto, Goofy, and Donald Duck. He was also a more domesticated character. Still he is a charmer, especially in such terrific 'toons as "The Nifty Nineties," the rollicking "Symphony Hour," and "Mickey and the Seal." This impeccable two-disc set also contains Mickey's comeback vehicles, "The Prince and the Pauper" and the Oscar-nominated "Mickey's Christmas Carol" and "Runaway Brain." Archival rarities include the only known film footage of Walt Disney recording the voice of Mickey, and Mickey's commercial plug for Standard Oil. But that's not all, folks (whoops -- wrong studio). There is a mind-blowing tribute to Mickey by stop-motion animator Mike Jittlov, as well as Mickey's most magical performance as "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." This entry in the Walt Disney Treasures line is essential for animation buffs and Disney devotees; and one hopes children growing up in the computer-animation age will appreciate the wealth of warmth and magic herein.

There are 2 things that bother me about this collection (the first involves the headline). 1. The collection is great right up to 1942 (right up to the hilarious 'The Symphony Hour'), but after that (starting with 1947), the cartoons get (almost) boring. They focus around Pluto, and leave Mickey to play straight man. Did one of the writers die in world war 2? Malton doesnt focus on this in the intro (or any other parts I can find). 2. Have we 'come so far' that we need to apologize for every ethnicity used in animation. Aparently Malton (or Eisner in disguise) feels the need to. On this collection, Malton is more specific on the incorectness. Maybe they should have just put a parental sticker on the can instead. Makes you wonder why they're putting off on releasing 'Song of the South' (I can just see it. A 30 minute intro by Leonard Malton explaining that the era was POST Cival war). Disc 2 is the one that shines on this collection. A full length 'Mickey's Christmas Carol', 'The Prince and the Pauper', and the short 'The Runaway Brain' (all in a wonderful 1.85:1 aspect ratio), plus some pretty outstanding bonus features. This one is definately a keeper. It's just not as good as Vol. 1. Incidentally, there is an easter egg. One of the notes can be highlighted, then press enter (it's in the bonus menu). Some good historic stuff.
