The Disney shorts also improved as films during this period. The direction becomes surer, with increasingly imaginative camerawork. If some cartoons look backward, recycling gags from "Steamboat Willie," "The Barnyard Concert" (1929) anticipates "The Band Concert" (1935). In both films, Mickey conducts a group of ragtag musicians in Zampa's "The Poet and the Peasant" Overture, and "Barnyard Concert" feels like a rough sketch for the brilliant "Band Concert," Mickey's first color short.
A few of these films include ethnic imagery that was considered good taste in the early '30s, but is no longer acceptable, as host Leonard Maltin cautions. (Unrated, suitable for ages 6 and older: cartoon violence, tobacco use, ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon

After two times of ordering I finally got it.. It's ok but a lot of the cartons are no talking.. The Mickey Mouse tug boat series is much better.Published 8 months ago by LjAkitt
It's cute. My 2 year old girl and 7 year old boys like it. And all the grown ups enjoy it. It's very long, so it's a pretty good deal.Published 10 months ago by happyshopper
The cartoons are in excellent condition. This is a highly musical collection -- more musical accompaniment than talking, at least on the first disc.Published 10 months ago by Kathryn E. Widener
