Okay so many of us wont remember the Silly Symphonies (first time round or otherwise) but these shorts are the reason we now have such classic's as "Snow White", "Pinocchio" and "Bambi". These shorts weren't produced for laugh's like the Mickey Mouse cartoons of the same time. They were made as an experiment in animation. Not only do they succeed in doing so, but they are also extremely entertaining.
There are 34 shorts (you have to find 3 of them) on this two disc set and they range from charming, to having great stories, to having great characters, or all three. Don't worry that some of the shorts don't contain the big stars like Goffy or Mickey (although Donald and Pluto are present) just watch and enjoy.
The shorts contained on this set are...
The Tortoise and the Hare, The Country Cousin, Babes in the Woods, Elmer Elephant, The Flying Mouse, The Golden Touch, The Robber Kitten, Lullaby Land, Mother Goose Melodies, Water Babies, The Wise Little Hen, Three Little Pigs, The Big Bad Wolf, Three Little Wolves, Toby Tortoise Returns, Who Killed Cock Robin?, The Grasshopper and the Ants, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, Mother Pluto, Peculiar Penguins, The Old Mill, Funny Little Bunnies, The Ugly Duckling (1939), The Ugly Duckling (1931), Father Noah's Ark, Birds of a Feather, The Busy Beavers, Just Dogs, Music Land, The China Plate, Egyptian Melodies, Flowers and Trees, The Cookie Carnival, The Skeleton Dance, Woodland Café, Farmyard Symphony.
There is also a some special features found here that give you the background of these shorts and why they were made.
All else I can say is
BUY THIS SET NOW! You wont be disapointted.
