Editorial Reviews

Disney has immortalized some of the world's most famous fairy tales in its animated productions. Between the mid-1930's and the mid-1950's, Disney embraced and mastered a new sound technology that allowed the synchronization of music and animated action and produced a vast array of music-driven productions that included the "Silly Symphony" cartoon shorts. This collection is comprised of six animated tales, both musical and non-musical, produced in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s that range from 7-1/2 minutes to 21-minutes in length and explore themes like cooperation, overconfidence, and greed. The Academy Award nominated 1953 short "Casey at the Bat" is a musical recitation of the tale of a baseball player whose overconfidence proves his downfall. The short "Morris the Midget Moose" (1950) shows how even the smallest of creatures can do great things when they collaborate with others. Oscar-nominated "Ben and Me" (1953) is the longest production at 21-minutes and tells the fanciful tale of a small country mouse who claims to be the inspirational force behind many of Ben Franklin's greatest inventions. The final three programs are Silly Symphony cartoon shorts that exhibit Disney's masterful intertwining of music and action. "The Golden Touch" (1953) spins a tale of the great King Midas felled by greed, "The Wise Little Hen" (1934) espouses the value of cooperation, and "Little Hiawatha" (1937) follows a young hunter whose compassion for animals curtails his hunting successes, but eventually saves his own life. Each of these timeless tales features rich animation, preserves an important piece of American folklore, and represents a historical stage of animation. (Ages 2 to 10) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

1.0 out of 5 stars Timeless because they keep getting re-issued on DVD! January 5, 2006
All of these have appeared on previous Disney DVD's!

These are ***** five star cartoons, but this cheater DVD is only one star!


CASEY AT THE BAT ( originaly a segment in Make Mine Music which is on DVD )

Here is a wonderful animated version of the famous baseball story, about a player who thinks too highly of himself. The Mudville Nine are behind in the game, but Casey, the mightiest player on the field, is due to bat in the ninth inning. Everybody thinks that Casey will win the game for his team, especially Casey. However, Casey is not only the biggest player, he's also the most vain and over-confident one.

LITTLE HIAWATHA (1937 also on the Pocahontas II DVD)

This story tells of the positive consequences of a good deed. A little Indian boy wants to be a mighty hunter and goes out in the forest to prove it. But he cannot kill a bunny that crosses his path, an act which endears him to the woodland creatures who later rescue him from a grizzly bear.

THE WISE LITTLE HEN (1934 repeat from the Donald Duck Vol #1 DVD Tin)

This historic animated short features the very first appearance of Donald Duck! When a mother hen needs help planting corn and harvesting it, Donald and his friend Peter Pig decide they don't want to work hard. The mother hen is forced to do the work herself, with the help of her chicks. When the corn is harvested and the mother hen makes delicious meals, Donald and Peter Pig find they're not invited to dinner.

THE GOLDEN TOUCH (1935 repeat from the Silly Symphonies DVD Tin)

Directed by Walt Disney himself, this story tells about the consequences of greed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement February 24, 2014
Verified Purchase
Was going through and replacing all the old VHS, upgrading to DVD or better, and I couldn't believe I actually found this one. The VHS I had was The Reluctant Dragon paired with Morris the Moose, so it was nice to get Casey at the Bat and Little Hiawatha as bonuses to that which I was expecting. A new generation of kiddos will now get to enjoy the same movies I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Tales
Disney's Timeless Tales are just that - timeless tales. These old cartoons dating back to the 30-ties are beautifully renovated and made to look like new. I truly recommend them.
