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.

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).

The 1st volume of Disney's It's A Small World of Fun shorts collection has the most shorts of all the other volumes, including a new one that debuted here, and can only be seen here; Grievance of a Starmaker. The 7 shorts are The Flying Gauchito (originally from The Three Caballeros, Disney's 7th animated feature; this is an old shaky print from when it was released as a single short in the 1950's) from South America, In Dutch starring Pluto and Dinah the Dachshund from Holland, the Oscar-nominated 2-reeler Goliath II (the second) from India (which was the first Disney short to use all-Xerox technology, even in spite of reusing and reworking old footage from shorts Tiger Trouble & The Old Mill, and major features Dumbo, Bambi, The Adventures of Ichabod & Mr. Toad, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, & Sleeping Beauty; respectively numbers 4, 5, 11, 13, 14, and 16; ironically the elephants crashing in a pile-up was reused & reworked for The Jungle Book, #19, a few years later), Mickey Down Under from Australia starring him and Pluto (one of a few Mickey shorts to use Pluto's theme music, not just Mickey whistling it here), African Diary from Africa starring Goofy (which is a recently-seen theatrical print with the blue Walt Disney Pictures card at the beginning), A Cowboy Needs A Horse from the USA, and the newest one Grievance of A Starmaker from Japan, literally! For Digimon fans out there, here's some pleasing trivia about this new short; the "star" of this picture, a boy named Yasu, was played by Digimon veteran American actress Brianne Siddall/Brozey, who recently played a part in season 7 as Mervamon's little brother Ignitemon. Though I couldn't tell who the narrator and Mr. Hoshi, the starmaker, were played by.Read more ›
