This wonderful Disney classic hearkens back to a time when Disney movies were clean, wholesome, without gas and other bodily function jokes, and when movie reviewers used words like "hearken".

"Ben & Me" is a fairly accurate cartoonification of the 1939 novel of the same name by Robert Lawson. Disney did a nice job summarizing in short form this whimsical novel. The only unfortunate part of the story is that it makes Benjamin Franklin, one of the greatest minds, inventors, statesmen and patriots, out to be a buffoon at best, and a pompous idiot at worst. This is the novel's fault, not Disney's- in fact, Disney toned this down in making the film. But the novel's Amos claims responsibility for almost everything Ben Franklin ever did- another item Disney (making this during a particularly patriotic era) wisely edited.

Kids will enjoy it, even if they can't determine why Winnie the Pooh is doing the voice of Amos Mouse. (Sterling Holloway, the beloved original voice of Pooh, also voiced "Roquefort Mouse" in "The Aristocats"...somewhat boxing himself into a bit of a mousy corner until "Jungle Book", where he voiced Kaa the snake.)

I do love this Disney cartoon, I watch it every summer when it gets closer to Independents Day. The only problem is that it skips parts. It skipped the part where Amios tells the story about his family right before he tells his side of the story. It doesn't bother me that it skips that part, but I already had that exact same version on another DVD, and I could've saved money. Why do they even skip parts on old shows? Maybe the younger generation won't notice, but the older generation, like myself might! Oh well.

I was pleasantly surprised on the picture quality . a great Disney movie for my collection. I know more about American history through Disney than I do about Australian history.

Growing up this was one of my favorite short films. I watched it at school and couldn't get enough of it. This DVD version lives up to my memories. It's picture is clear, and the audio is just as wonderful. I highly recommend it!

I love this story. I used to watch it every July 4 on the Disney Channel. It is well made. It is good feeling when my kids want this, a non violent, non sarcastic and no innuendo animation film over what they show on TV today. Good wholesome program. I wish they would show it again on the Disney channel or any channel.

This a wonderful story. It will also teach your children some history and let them realize what a great mind Ben Franklin was. We love it. I wish it came with the introduction from Walt Disney, but it is really neat, and well done.
