Personally, I do collect the Disney Treasures tins, so for me there were only two shorts of interest in this DVD collection of 7 Disney animated shorts, but I decided one of those was reason enough to make the purchase. And with that in mind, I was slightly disappointed. But more on that later.

As previously stated, this first volume of Disney's 4 volume (so far) "It's a Small World of Fun" line is a collection of seven short Disney cartoons. Six of these cartoons are theatrically released classics. The seventh is a first-see for Americans, "Grievance of a Starmaker" from 2002, and was the result of a Japanese story-writing contest. The winner's story was made into a Disney animated short, and this DVD is the first and only way for Americans to currently see the short. Now, the idea behind the title of this DVD line and how the shorts were selected for it is that each short represents a different part of the world. Naturally, the line title is taken from that very popular Disney theme park ride/song, "It's a Small World (After All)". Unfortunately, the song is not featured anywhere on the disc, not even on the menu, which would have been nice.

Here is the line-up:

1. "The Flying Gauchito" (South America): This short was originally part of the 1944 feature "The Three Caballeros", but was released as a solo short the next year. It is the story of a little boy who captures a winged, flying Donkey and tries to use him to win a horse race and get rich. A very enjoyable short, but the major flaw of this collection because the print used looks like something you'd find on a $1.00 DVD of a public domain cartoon. The picture is shaky and loaded with artifacts. You're better off getting this one in the context of Three Caballeros, which is a wonderful film anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, classic fun March 23, 2007
These "It's a Small World" DVDs use classic Disney cartoons to take viewers around the world. They're not geography lessons, but they do make a fun complement to Disney's "The Little Einsteins."

Originally shown in theaters, the cartoons feature bright animation atop gorgeous watercolors. And though they are often filled with sight gags, they're never the least bit cynical. Destinations on this "Volume 1" disk include Argentina, the Netherlands, Australia and Africa:

A boy finds a flying donkey and enters it in a horse race in the charming "The Flying Gauchito," a cartoon the whole family will enjoy. Kids will crack up at the donkey; adults will like how the off-screen narrator controls the action -- and often changes his mind.

All ages will also like the Pluto cartoon "In Dutch." Pluto's expressive face is irresistible when he gets embarrassed, cries and gets a sneaky idea. When Pluto meets a cute girl dog he gets so smitten his face nearly transforms into Goofy's! The plot has a simple arc any child can understand: Pluto and the girl are first treated unfairly by authority figures (they accidentally ring a Netherlands city's emergency bell and get banished from the village) but eventually become the town heroes.

Pluto steals the show in his appearence with Mickey Mouse, "Mickey's Down Under." As Mickey battles an angry ostrich, Pluto tries to catch a boomerang which seems to have a mind of its own. Once it gets stuck in his mouth, Pluto's hilarious facial expressions will tickle a viewer of any age -- even a teenager.

The other cartoons are pretty good, too. Goofy's "African Diary" combines silly animals with even sillier sight gags (the Goof does fire his rifle point blank at a rhino, though miraculously it doesn't get hurt).

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection item January 26, 2008
I was looking for the DVD edition of 1946 Walt Disney cartoon about Prokofieff's famous 'Peter and the wolf' and could not find it in an individual edition, like the previous VHS release. Fortunately it was available in this wonderful collection of other classics by Disney. It is a collector item and a must for all Disney lovers.
