Product Description

The celebration of Mickey’s colour capers continues in this second volume of shorts - from "Society Dog Show" in 1939 to his last short, "The Simple Things" in 1953 - and films, giving you a decidedly colourful history of the most famous mouse in the world. This outstanding review of Mickey’s colour career spotlights some very special features, including his groundbreaking performance in "The Sorcerer’s Apprentice" and a commercial film created for the Standard Oil Company, which hasn’t been seen since 1939. You’ll also get an inside look at Mickey’s recent career through the eyes of his most recent "performers" Mark Henn and Andreas Deja and voice actors Wayne Allwine (Mickey) and Russi Taylor (Minnie).

Bringing the classical cartoons of Mickey Mouse to an end. Living Colour volume 2 has some of the greatest cartoons Mickey's career has brought to the silver-screens. Although some of his later cinematic cartoons are less evolutionally and certainly a little tamer compared to that of Warner Bros (or Donald and Goofy's cartoons for that matter); that doesn't reduce the quality they have in their own right. This disc set contains the whole of Mickey's silver-screen career from 1939 to the present day. Eighteen short subject cartoons: from the 1939 short "Society Dog show" to his last short "The Simple Things" in 1953, are included in the box. Some of these shorts are introduced by animation historian Leonard Maltin, talking mostly about the stereotypes and strange behaviours that are in some of the films; explaining that they are products of their time. A few of these cartoon are technically Pluto cartoons, especially some of the later cartoons.

As well as the short subject cartoons, this twin disc set also includes Mickey's featurettes, each of these are also introduced by Leonard Maltin:
His segment of Fantasia - Always beautifully animated and inventive, not to mention probably one of the best known pieces of Mickey's career. A classic piece of animation. However, it's been released so many times, in different compilations, that I how have multiple copies of this piece of animation. Two of which are on my copy of Fantasia/Fantasia 2000.
Mickey and the Beanstalk - The last cinematic cartoon to star Walt Disney as the voice of Mickey Mouse. A little slow to get moving by today's standards. It still is a great little cartoon, with Donald and Goofy in supporting roles. The giant is more fun than scary, but still represents enough of a menace to Mickey's safety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing, even in 2006! 2 Jan 2006
By A Customer
I bought this simply as something to keep the kids entertained but I found myself enjoying the cartoons just as much as them, if not moreso. Sometimes I think it's easy to forget how great the Disney animated shorts were, and how cheap and sterile most modern kids cartoons are in comparison (most of them it's just a still image with only the mouth moving, how boring is that??). You can really feel the care that was put into crafting these shorts, and the DVD is bursting with 243 minutes of content. What more could you want? Well, you could do worse than getting the Donald Duck volume which is just as entertaining.
Massively recommended. It truly is a piece of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey in Living Colour Volume 2 22 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
This is the second volume of Walt Disney's Treasures series on Mickey Mouse featuring his short films from 1939 until 1953.

The collection which is spread over two disc's is packed with not only the entertaining shorts but a lot of these have introductions from film critic and animation fan Leonard Maltin who helpfully gives background information on the cartoon's.

The thing that makes the DVD for me however are the special features. Here we have later Mickey Mouse tales such as 1947's Mickey and the Beanstalk, 1983's Mickeys Christmas Carol and 1990's Prince and the Pauper.

Altogether I think this is a brilliant DVD package for Disney fan's as well as people who are interested in animation in general.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gift for my Grandson 27 Oct 2011
By I am
Verified Purchase
My Grandson (age 2)loved the Mickey and the Seal clip on UTube so I thought this might be a good buy. He loves it! Although I had forgotten how much banging and crashing there was in the older cartoons he is totally into it. The quality is good and the layout easy to set up for one cartoon or a continuous run. If you like the 'real' Mickey Mouse this is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey is Magic. 2 Oct 2011
By Sequin
Purchased this for my grandson (3 years)It is simply marvellous,funny, hilarious. He will not let me put it off. I get as much fun as he does. Beautifully made.These films date from 1936 onward but don`t let that put you off as the quality is superb.
This review is Living Colour2. I immediately purchased Living Colour1.This one dates from 1941.Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Mickey! 8 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
As with the companion release this represents the epitome of animation by the Disney Studio. Not just Mr. Mouse but his stable-mates too are generously represented. Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie, Clara Cluck etc. Print and sound quality are quite superb. Classic cartoon fun at a knock-down price with fascinating bonus material.
(this too has had a considerable price-increase)

Well this is everybody's favourite little mouse! I have brought this because as one of the bonus features is "Mickeys Christmas Carol" I had tried to buy Christmas Carol on DVD but can only find it "region 1" There is a lot of mickey mouse cartoons on this DVD, a favourite of my two little granddaughters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mickey Mouse golden years 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
Old-style Disney cartoons. Bought for grand-daughter who has had hours of fun watching and laughing. Also appreciated is how these cartoons cater for adults too, with sophisticated dialogue and smart asides. Incomparably brilliant.

4.0 out of 5 stars good old mickey
It is nice to have the old proper mickey cartoons for the kids but there is too much introduction in between that doesn't entertain them. Still it is very good value for the money.
