And now we have MAKE MINE MUSIC - the last of the animated Disney features to be released on home video (some had previously been released on laser disc but not video). It is difficult to believe that anything Disney released to theatres to all audiences in 1946 would be considered objectionable to today's more cynical audiences more than 50 years later - but evidently Disney thinks so. The first of the 10 musical segments that make up this film (the same format as FANTASIA) is missing! The segment is called The Martins and The Coys, performed by The King's Men (whose name has been erased from the opening credits!). This film has played several times - intact - on the Disney channel (thank God for VCRs) for almost 10 years - the last being less than one year ago.Read more ›
The disappointment comes from Disney's unfortunate editing. They are very busy painting fig leaves, and ultimately it is the fans who suffer. One piece originally included in "Make Mine Music," "Martins & Coys," has been removed entirely due to the comic gunplay which they feared could be confused with reality by children. Significant edits have been made to the actual animation cells of "All the Cats Join In" to make the girls less...buxom.
I hope that an unedited version of "Make Mine Music" is released some day. Until then, it is nice to have some of these great cartoons on DVD.
I almost returned the DVD for a refund (and probably should have) but decided to keep the thing for what content it has. I feel all Disney fans, especially those who purchase this DVD, should give appropriate input to Disney. This release is certainly not the only example of censorship (e.g.,editing in "Melody Time", withholding of "Song of the South" from the US home video market, etc.) by today's Disney Company.
Also, for what it's worth, the video transfer quality is not all that great on this one either.

This DVD was not able to play in my region. Very frustrating.Published 17 days ago by Melissa Almasi
The material has been edited by the PC bosses at Disney. The same people who support the banning of colorization or editing for violent or sexual content have no trouble editing... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dr. Richard P. Morrall
If anyone had watched this, even once, then you'd know it begins skipping during the commercials, making it difficult to even access the actual movie.Published 2 months ago by s d crumble
It was fine! Unfortunately, it doesn't include "The Martins and the Coys", which I saw anyway in 1948. That can be found in other online sources.
I ordered it on Fri. Read more
Great old Disney! Some parts of this DVD are not that exciting, but overall it is great. Johnny Fedora and Casey at the Bat are very good, and the singing whale is wonderful. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Critical Guy
