Product Description

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.

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.

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.

Without Mickey I doubt we would ever have had Walt Disney films for the last near century. This second collection is as good as the first.

Believe it or not this was one of a series of cartoon DVDs brought specifically for our budgie who adores it. He watches intently. He sings along and he protests loud and long if anyone switches it off before the end credits have rolled.

(Actually I got them for me - but please do not let my wife know!!)

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.

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.

Found this invaluable as it expanded my grandchilds (and by default the rest of the family) collection to give a wider choice (yes I mean adults) and more entertainment value. A must have if you want to be able to say the same.
