3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Collection, But Lacks Extras and No Remastering April 30, 2009
It's a well known fact that the Walt Disney Company is the mastermind of how to make money off of anything. They can package and repackage things over and over and over and over and even though a person already owns three versions of something, they'll buy it again. Kind of like the new Disney Animation Collection. Disney is re-releasing many of the cartoon shorts that first made the studio famous. These shorts have all been released before in one form or the other. I have a feeling that the new re-packaging of these shorts is a prelude to the eventual Blu-ray release of the shorts in a better form a couple years from now.

As far as shorts go, MICKEY AND THE BEANSTALK is a great collection. The collection includes:

"Mickey and the Beanstalk"--a re-telling of the classic story of "Jack and the Beanstalk", but this time with Mickey, Donald, and Goofy as the heroes. This short was originally planned as a feature film, but due to budget constraints was shortened and included as part of the 1947 movie FUN AND FANCY FREE. This version of the short doesn't include the live action narration with Edgar Bergen, but the animated storytelling of Ludwig Von Drake and Herman the Cricket from the 1963 television airing of the short. "Mickey and Beanstalk" isn't just worth watching because it's a good story, but because it's also the last cartoon that Walt Disney himself did the voice of Mickey Mouse.

"The Brave Little Tailor"--of all the Disney shorts I watched as a kid, "The Brave Little Tailor" was my favorite. Mickey stars as the Tailor. The village he lives in is all worried about a giant. Meanwhile, oblivious to the giant worries, the tailor is trying to work but is pestered by a group of flies.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALMOST the "Best of Mickey" ! June 5, 2009
This new collection is almost the "Best of Mickey Mouse." The title film, "Mickey and the Beanstalk," (29:17) is certainly Mickey (and the Gang)'s greatest epic, skillfully combining great songs and slapstick humor into a thrilling adventure story. "The Brave Little Tailor" is an ideal second cartoon, since it is another middle ages fairy tale featuring a giant. "Thru the Mirror" is one of Mickey's more bizarre shorts. Presaging Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" by 15 years, it is included with the first two films because Mickey grows small and then large like a giant. But it also features some of the funniest and surreal gags this side of Fleischer, and a swinging big band tune! "Gulliver Mickey" a late black and white short is an inspired choice, but here the tables are turned -- it is Mickey who is the giant! I say "ALMOST the Best of" because of the final film "Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip." What is this film doing in this collection? It is a weak cartoon, and has no connection with the "theme" of this DVD. With the first 4 shorts, this disc would almost be "Best of Mickey" if they had "The Band Concert," "Clock Cleaners," or even "Sorcerer's Apprentice" for the umpteenth time, instead of "Mr. Mouse." Still, this is a great collection if you don't already own most of these shorts. For the record, "Mickey and the Beanstalk" is also available in the Disney DVD full-length feature "Fun and Fancy Free" (1947); "Brave Little Tailor" (1938) and "Thru the Mirror" (1935) are also available in the DVD tin box set "Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Living Color " (Vol. 1); and "Gulliver Mickey" (1934) is also available in the DVD tin box set "Mickey Mouse in Black and White" (Vol. 1).

2.0 out of 5 stars ~Classic Disappointment~ May 13, 2009
I would like to make a couple of things clear before I begin my review.

1.) This review is for 'Mickey and The Beanstalk' Disney animated short only.

2.) I bought this at Target not Amazon.com

I've had for a really long time wanted to buy 'Mickey and The Beanstalk' ever since the VHS tape I had of it was lost in one of my many moves.

So when 'Disney Animation Collection 1: Mickey & the Beanstalk' was released I was ecstatic and bought it for a premium price of $20.

The packaging and title screens are pristine in quality and sound however 'Mickey and The Beanstalk' is not, the animation looks like it hasn't been cleaned up in decades, even the VHS Version was better, the sound is horrific with the music and sounds and sound effects being really loud while the speech is very soft.

I agree with other previous posters to rent before buying because as much of a classic as this is it's not worth $20 and it's probably not worth watching more than twice in a decade.

3.0 out of 5 stars "A hundred golden pazoozas!" April 26, 2009
Although known today primarily for its feature-length animated films, the Disney Company's bread and butter of the 1930's through the 1950's were its color shorts, many based on classic fairy tales incorporating Disney stars like Mickey Mouse and Goofy. The studio has just released a series of six DVD's under the Walt Disney Classic Short Films banner.
"Mickey and the Beanstalk" (Disney) is the best segment from the feature compilation "Fun and Fancy Free" (1947). It's the Disney take on the "Jack and the Beanstalk" tale, with Mickey Mouse standing in as Jack. Exquisite animation characterizes this adventure, as the beanstalk's vines twist and grow and slink about while Mickey attempts to grapple a singing harp from a goofy but dangerous giant.
"Thru the Mirror" (1936) is a splendidly surreal take on Lewis Carroll's Alice stories. Surrealism was wholeheartedly embraced by Disney's competitors, the Fleischer Brothers, but was uncommon at Disney. This cartoon is the exception, as Mickey is accosted by an angry umbrella, King Neptune emerges from the ocean on a globe, and playing cards dance in a Busby Berkeley-inspired extravaganza.
The other cartoons in this set are "The Brave Little Tailor," "Gulliver Mickey," and "Mr. Mouse Takes a Trip."
Though I love these shorts, I was disappointed in the overall quality. The cartoons are not remastered and the sound, though listed as Dolby Digital Surround Sound, is too often muddy. My suggestion would be to bypass this release or perhaps rent it, rather than buy. Disney cartoons are meant for repeat viewings and with the less-than-excellent visual quality, you'll likely become more annoyed with each subsequent viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic
This is a classic and a nice little bonus was that it came with quite a few other movies I loved as a kid and now my son will love. It may not be blu ray but great Disney quality.
