The Disney Animation Collection Vol. 1 - 6 - Review

The Disney Animation Collection Vol. 1 - 6
Ages: General Audience

This should have been sold as a boxed set – once you have played one, you will want all six disks. Disney cartoons, some as early as 1936, a few in black and white and all with English, French and Spanish subtitles can be enjoyed by young and old alike. It's from a time when Disney used fairy tales for plots – many take a creative turn.

Each disk has a mix of early and recent work. Many contain original songs, which make them like mini-musicals. The box art shows the main cartoon, usually a half hour long piece, plus each disk contains four to seven additional shorts. A litho print from the title selection, nicely done on card stock is included in each box.

For some of us who are old enough, it's validation that, "Yes, I did see that, I didn't imagine it". For those who are younger it’s a bonanza of wonderful Disney cartoons – all played without commercials, except for the annoying movie promotions in the beginning.
