Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

By 1939, when the earliest films in this collection were made, Mickey Mouse was the most famous cartoon character in the world. The unsuccessful hunter in "The Pointer" (1939) and the irrepressible magician in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (1940) rank among his finest performances. In both films, he sparkles with vitality. But as Mickey grew more popular, more restrictions were placed on what he could do, and the character grew dull. Those restrictions become obvious when the viewer compares these films with the shorts on Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Living Color. In "Mickey's Birthday Party" (1942), he clowns and stumbles through a comic dance routine, but it feels like he's working for the laughs. In 1936, when a more impish Mickey danced with a deck of cards in "Thru the Mirror," the fun came from the stylish grace of his movements: That Mickey didn't need to mug for the camera. In the later films, Mickey serves as a genial straight man, with Pluto and other side characters supplying the comedy.

A new generation of animators faced the same problems and restrictions when they tried to revive the character in "Mickey's Christmas Carol" (1983) and "The Prince and the Pauper" (1990). The extras include some deleted animation from "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," and the five opening sequences from the "Mickey Mouse Club" (1955), the last time Walt Disney provided the character's voice. (Rated G, suitable for all ages: minor cartoon violence, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

The celebration of Mickey's color capers continues in this second volume of shorts -- from "Society Dog Show" in 1939 to his last short, "The Simple Things," in 1953 -- and feature film appearances, giving you a decidedly colorful history of the most famous mouse in the world. This outstanding review of Mickey's color career spotlights some very special features, including his groundbreaking performance in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." You'll also get an inside look at Mickey's recent career through the eyes of his most recent animators, Mark Henn and Andreas Deja, and voice actors Wayne Allwine (Mickey) and Russi Taylor (Minnie). Featuring exclusive introductions by film historian Leonard Maltin, this is a timeless collection from generations past for generations to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, but... February 5, 2005
Mickey Mouse in Living Color Volume 2 is great. It features a multitude of Mickey/Pluto shorts and some really cool extras. Each cartoon has its good points and bad points (some more than others) but overall a very, very awesome set. The best part is having Mickey and the Beanstalk, Mickey's Christmas Carol, and The Prince and the Pauper all together in one set :)

Unfortunately, when you use the Play All feature, it doesn't just play the cartoons. Many of the cartoons feature a brief introduction from DVD host Leonard Maltin. Now, you would think these introductions would tell you a bit about the history of the short, how the story was conceived, who directed it, whatever. But, no, all these introductions are for is to warn viewer about possible "offensive" material found in the shorts. It really saddens me that we live in a world where people cannot see the past as past and accept they way things were at the time. Instead, we have these really annoying clips of Maltin telling us how much more "enlightened" we are nowadays. He says the same repetitive things in each intro.

The public domain releases of old cartoon from the '30s and '40s that you can get at Wal-Mart for a dollar have the same type of supposedly offensive material (actually, probably more of it than anything Disney would ever have). We don't, however, have Leonard Maltin there warning us of the dangers of supposedly un-PC material. Whatever. Aside from that, this set is awesome! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Latest Chapter in a Long Career September 20, 2004
This volume in the Disney Treasures series features the latest work from studio icon Mickey Mouse. This set covers the longest time period, starting in 1939 and running up to his most resent short, "Runaway Brain."

Disc One features the remaining color shorts. There are 18 of them here, ranging from 1939 to 1953. In many of them, Mickey plays a supporting role, usually to Pluto. He still gets chances to shine in such shorts as "Mickey's Delayed Date" and "Mickey and the Seal." I especially enjoyed "Tugboat Mickey," although here Donald and Goofy get to shine more then Mickey does. Especially interesting was "Orphan's Benefit," a complete update of the Black and White classic including color and the current look of all the classic characters. Disc one includes Mickey's early big screen appearances, including "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and "Mickey and the Beanstalk." This second one is the original version. I was hoping it would be the one I grew up watching on TV, but it makes sense it wouldn't be. There's also a fun Easter Egg to find.

Disc Two brings us Mickey's comeback of the 80's and 90's. Here we get three cartoons, "Mickey's Christmas Carol," "The Prince and the Pauper," and "Runaway Brain." Personally, I'm thrilled to have the first on DVD since I watching it every Christmas. The second is a fun reworking of Mark Twain's classic. I remember not being impressed with the final one when I saw it in the theater, and my impression still holds up today. All three are presented in wide screen since, being more modern, that's their original aspect ratio.

The second disc is where you'll find the majority of the bonus features.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff. Too many inescapable apologies November 25, 2005
Verified Purchase
I have most all the Disney Treasures DVDs. Watching these over and over, I get tired of the Leonard Maltin apologies for the content. First, the content doesn't offend me. I guess that must mean I need to know why it should. The Maltin intros tell me every single time I see each offending short. I hope those in charge will consider putting one disclaimer at the beginning of the entire set, which can be bypassed with the ff button in the future. I really get tired of seeing them over and over.

Beyond that, and that's no small thing, the content I bought the DVDs for is the best. Thank you, Disney for releasing them.
