5.0 out of 5 stars Disney Classic - Remarkable Animation, 16 Aug 2013
After watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote to Walt Disney about adapting his novel of an ape-man into a feature animated cartoon. Some 60 years later, the tale is finally told with brilliant design work that looks unlike any previous animated film. The story is a natural for Disney since the themes of misunderstood central figures have been at the heart of its recent hits. Disney's Tarzan doesn't wander far from the familiar story of a shipwrecked baby who is brought up by apes in Africa. What gives the film its zing is its clever use of music (the songs are sung by Phil Collins himself rather than onscreen characters) and the remarkable animation. Deep Canvas, a 3-D technology, was developed for the film, creating a jungle that comes alive as Tarzan swings through the trees, often looking like a modern skateboarder racing down giant tree limbs. The usual foray of sidekicks, including a rambunctious ape voiced by Rosie O'Donnell, should keep the little ones aptly entertained. The two lead voices, Tony Goldwyn as Tarzan and Minnie Driver as Jane, are inspired choices. Their chemistry helps the story through the weakest points (the last third) and makes Tarzan's initial connection with all things human (including Jane) delicious entertainment. Disney still is not taking risks in its animated films, but as cookie-cutter entertainment, Tarzan makes a pretty good treat. --Doug Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars TIMELESS COLLECTION from Generations Past for Generations to Come, 18 Jan 2013
It was 1934 when the irascible Donald Duck came to life in a teeny bit of a part in 'The Wise Little Men' and proceeded to steal the show. From that point on nobody could hold him back, and the much-loved cranky character went on the most profilic of Walt's FAB FIVE.

Now for the First Time, you can enjoy Donald in ALL of his STARRING SHORTS from 'Donald & Pluto' in 1936 to 'Chef Donald' in 1941.

This Volume also includes insights into the origins and career of the belligerent 'bird' from Tony Aselmo, a renowned Disney Animator who apprenticed for 3 years with Clarence "Ducky" Nash, the originator of Donald's distinctive voice.

Also features exclusive introductions by film historian, Leonald Maltin, making this 2 DVD Set a TIMELESS Collection from generations past for generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars ORIGINAL VERSION is BEST, 23 July 2012
Having had the opportunity to watch ALL the DVD versions of one of absolutely fantastic animated classics from Disney and as a former (now retired) member of Disney Management staff, it is strikingly obvious that the charm and production of how we (of a certain age) remember so fondly the animation, and it is somehow lost that in the newer Disney releases, albeit digitally remastered, with the loss of widescreen vision, the over emphasis of sharp lines, etc.

Buy the Original Release if possible - you will not be disappointed.

It is a GREAT Story, timeless and for all ages.
