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
We enjoyed watching the historic cartoons.
While this set is one of the least likely to get played over and over, it is still a very important collection for a fans of animation and Disney.
The extras include a Mickey Mania collectables feature and an interview with John Hench Mickey's Portrait Artist.
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 2 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 2 months ago by Kathryn E. Widener

I bought this set for my son. He already had two of the other "Treasure" sets and plays them over and over. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Alfred & Cathy
My kids ages 4 and 7 love this. They laugh their heads off. Their cousins aged 8,10,11,13, and 15 also love it and laugh at it too. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Muriel Czarny
These Treasures from Mickey and Minnie's early days are just that . . . a vehicle to take me back to days of early childhood when I fell in love with that pair of tiny mammals. Read morePublished 17 months ago by B. Spencer
