Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In this final volume, the homage to Mickey's early career is completed with these shorts. From 1928's "The Barn Dance" to his very last black-and-white short, 1935's "Mickey's Kangaroo," his colorful antics in a black-and-white world propelled him to super-stardom. The Mickey craze touched everybody and everything. In this volume, hear Leonard Maltin and Disney Legend John Hench talk about Mickey's official birthday portraits. Visit an unbelievable collection of Mickey collectibles and rare artifacts. Enjoy period photos, publicity, and animation art from the archives. It's all here plus more in this celebration of the mouse who became a global icon.

Amazon.com

By the time "The Barn Dance" (1928), the fourth Mickey Mouse short and the oldest film on this collection, was released, Mickey was well on his way to cartoon stardom. The viewer can see how quickly the Disney animators improved between "The Barn Dance" and "Mickey's Kangaroo" (1935, his last black-and-white film). The characters are so rubbery in "Barn Dance," that when Mickey steps on Minnie's foot, her leg stretches out on the floor. Mickey and Minnie look noticeably more solid by "Mickey's Mechanical Man" (1933). "Playful Pluto" (1934) offers the landmark sequence of Pluto trying to escape from sheet of fly paper: one of the first instances where an animated character actually seemed to think and react to his environment believably. But it's Pluto who gets the laughs--Mickey is already turning into the straight man he eventually became.

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Politicially correct -- but rather insulting December 27, 2004
Format:DVD
As a hardcore Disney fan, the Treasures series is a dream come true -- and I certainly won't rest until I have every single cartoon from the Disney vault. I originally owned Mickey in B&W Vol 1 when it was on Laserdisc fifteen years ago; and knowing then that there were a few missing, I am thrilled to have this second volume.

But unfortunately, the people at Disney seem very much ashamed of their cartoons. On most of the Disney Treasure series, any appearance of a gun, an obscure racial stereotype or the use of the word "Mammy" is preceeded by a gushing apology from Leonard Maltin, explaining how back in the Dark Ages of the 1930's, people weren't as enlightened as they are today, and that we shouldn't judge too harshly.

But what the Disney people don't realize is that most people today don't know who Al Jolson was and won't know what "Mammy" is referring to. By pointing out these often hard-to-spot gags (one is a face-shaped balloon floating in the background), it just makes us notice them and even look for them.

But this particular collection goes beyond the previous collections, which is why I can't give this one 5 stars. They have taken all the cartoons that could be remotely offensive, including most of the best in this collection(including a classic Christmas cartoon), and placed them in a separate section. To access this section, you have to sit through a three-minute apology from Leonard Maltin, which cannot be skipped or scanned -- you have to sit through it every single time you watch these cartoons. They call this section "From the Vault", which I took to mean that they hadn't been seen in many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BIRTH OF A MOUSE! October 11, 2004
Format:DVD
The second volume in the Mickey in Black & white from the Disney Treasures collection picks up where volume one left off and gives us all 40 of the remaining mickey mouse shorts.

I'm guessing most of these shorts have not been seen in ages. I personally have always preferred the old style, black-eye only look of mickey to the more modern look of today.

And of course, nothing beats the classic animation from the 30's and 40's before studios started doing things on the cheap.

Among my favorites in this collection are:

"Mickey's Mechanical Man" - Mickey's built a robot named Champ who's going to win Mickey a prize by fighting Beppo the Gorilla, the Kongo Killer, in a boxing ring.

"The Haunted House"

"Mickey's Pal, Pluto"

"traffic Troubles" - Mickey is a taxi driver. He takes Percy Pig to an appointment, but loses him on the way. His next fare doesn't fare much better; Minnie must go to her music lesson, but a detour through a barnyard and an encounter with a snake-oil salesman ruin that plan, too.

Well...there's lots more. This is just fantastic stuff. It's animation the way it isn't done anymore.

Add to that a whole host of extras: Leonard Maltin introductions, "Mickey's Mania: Collecting Mickey Merchandise", "Mickey's Portrait Artist: John Hench", "Mickey's Sunday Funnies: A Virtual Comic Strip", Still Frame Galleries, etc.

Great stuff and highly recommended.

If you are a fan of vintage cartoons as I am, you have probably already purchased this set or it is on its way. This set makes up the B&W Mickey shorts that were passed over in the first volume, when Disney was unsure of the current popularity of these cartoons. The most important thing about this set is that most of these cartoons have not been shown on television for decades, if at all. The most historically important thing is that most were directed by Ub Iwerks, originator of the Mickey Mouse style and some would say the inspiration for Japan's Manga style for the past half century. These films are rare gems that should be in any collection, and are extremely effective as entertainment for any child. The often overlooked character, Horace Horsecollar is also featured in most of these shorts.
