Editorial Reviews

This lighthearted story follows the adventures of a brave young boy who, emboldened by tales of brave knights, decides to pursue the horrible dragon that is terrifying the villagers. 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?

Walt Disney made the best cartoons.

I loved the reluctant dragon as a child so I was so happy that I found a replacement and in DVD format.

Format: DVD
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.

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!

Having seen this movie as a kid, and LOVED it, I was ready to show it to my Grandkids. Bought the DVD and went to watch it myself first to see if I remembered it. Big disappointment. The quality of the movie is so poor that I didn't finish watching it. Didn't show it to the Grandkids. It was just too grainy and hard to look at. What are they thinking? Disney did a wonderful job creating the film. Why make such a poor DVD of it? I don't understand it. So, there it sits, unwatched. Very sad. I rated this 2 stars because I loved the movie. But the quality shouldn't get any stars at all. Shame on you, Disney. Your loyal customers deserve better. You are the conglomerate you are now because of your customers. Please don't short change the people who made you who you are today.

Appearances aren't everything. Dragons may be big and have a horrible reputation, but they may be nothing like what they have been stereotyped to be.

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.

These cartoons are sweet and entertaining. My two girls aged 7 and 5 love this DVD and have watched it many times. The quality is good but not high def - no big deal to me. These are original and unenhanced versions of 4 sweet Disney cartoons I remember watching when I was a kid.
1. The Reluctant Dragon
2. Goliath 2
3. Johnny Appleseed
4. Ferdinand the Bull
All are sweet and clean. I feel very good about my kids watching these.

this is one of my christmas list items and it was a very good item at a good price, thank you. this is the tv show from when i was a kid and they are not so bad as are the ones on today tv. i would rather pay to buy good things for kids to watch than to allow them to see the evil and bad tv shows of today.
