But what he discovers is a surprisingly friendly dragon that is more interested in reciting poetry and making music than devouring fair damsels. With the boy be able to stop the local hero before he challenges the draagon to a fiery battle?

As a child, I can easily remember my prized possession was a Walt Disney book that my father purchased for me and it featured the chronology of the early classic Walt Disney animated shorts. Some of these shorts were shown on the Disney Channel when I was younger but suffice to say, with all the new animation, a lot of these classics have probably been forgotten or have been released on VHS video.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment are now releasing a few of these shorts on DVD for the first time (some have appeared on past Disney DVD releases). With the first three volumes released, the fourth, fifth and sixth volumes will be released on May 12, 2009.

A lot of these short films were created in the 1920-1940's and typically featured characters that were not reoccurring (with the exception of the tortoise and the hare which appeared in a second short). Some were released under the "Silly Symphony" moniker of animated shorts released between 1929-1939 which rarely featured any character dialogue but focused more on the animation accompanied by music and a singing vocal track.

Walt Disney Animation Collection Vol. 6: The Reluctant Dragon

The "Walt Disney Animation Collection" sixth volume features the least amount of shorts than previous volumes but each short featured in this volume is a bit longer in duration than most Walt Disney shorts. Also, unlike the older and shorter animated shorts, these shorts included in vol. 6 contain dialogue.

1. The Reluctant Dragon - (20:38) This Technicolor 1994 animated short features a boy who is friends with a dragon. He finds out that the knight Sir Giles from his village has been sent to kill the dragon and that he should prepare to fight.

I've raised 3 kids on this video and seen it a dozen times.
It's always fresh and among the funniest things I've ever seen.
A few lines stick with me as classics.
The animation is just delightful.
The poetry "slam" is hilarious, as is the big battle scene.
Hey, it's time I watched it again.

This disc contains four ancient Disney short films. I'm not sure I'd ever seen two of them before, and quite sure I haven't seen any of them for a very, very long time.

The Reluctant Dragon is a story about a dragon that hates fighting. He's warned that a knight with a reputation for being a fearless dragon killer is on his way. He'd rather recite poetry and have a picnic with his little friend, a boy who loves to read about knights and dragons. But it turns out the knight also writes poetry (both of them very, very bad poets), so they negotiate a deal to pretend to fight to impress the villagers.

Ferdinand the Bull likes to sit under the cork tree (it has bottle corks hanging from it like fruit) and smell the flowers. But of course the bull fight promoters want him to fight. He's big and strong, and when he accidentally sits on a bumble bee, gets quite fierce. So he's chosen for the bull ring, with disastrous results.

Goliath II is a tiny, very tiny elephant. Goliath I is huge and very proud, and is terribly ashamed of his son, not much bigger than a mouse. Actually, his size is not quite consistent throughout the film. Little Goliath looks remarkably like Dumbo, except for his ears, and his mother and the other female elephants were pretty clearly drawn by the same artist who did Dumbo. How does he gain his father's respect? By fighting and defeating the only thing the adult elephants are afraid of: a mouse. Why they are afraid of a mouse is never explained.

The Legend of Johnny Appleseed is a very familiar story narrated by Dennis Day. It's quite religious: Johnny goes off with a bag of apple seeds, a cook pot for a hat, and a large Bible. He sings "The Lord is Good to Me," and is inspired to head west on his apple seeding mission by his guardian angel.

This is a fascinating look into some of the Disney cartoons from the 1940s, when the studio experimented with very different styles and stories. Enjoy.

Was going through and replacing all the old VHS, upgrading to DVD or better, and I couldn't believe I actually found this one. Alas, it did not have Morris the Midget Moose like the VHS, but Timeless Tales, Vol. 3 did, so I was able to get back the movies I loved in a format that the next generation of kiddos will be able to enjoy as well. Well worth the price!

If the name Walt Disney doesn't mean anything to you re: children's movies & "Classics", then you won't like this DVD. The truth of the matter is that Walt Disney had MANY short, entertaing & fun movies that often had a hidden moral in them (friendship, compassion, understanding, different opinions,etc). This DVD has the terrific "Reluctant Dragon" as well as Ferdinand the Bull", Johnny Appleseed", & "Goliath" (the VERY tiny elephant)! All of which can show values that are as pertinent today as they were when these "shorts" were made. My only regret was that the original VHS had "Morris, the Midget Moose" on it & that was ommitted on this DVD.Maybe they felt that Goliath made the point re: size but I still wish Morris had been included as well. I HIGHLY recommend this DVD to all parents who have children (from 2 years up)! They will enjoy the short movies &, without knowing it, may just pick up on the "moral" that is being portrayed.
