1) it is too short and
2) It has only two of their three solo cartoons. "LONE CHIPMUNKS" is missing and SHOULD have been included. It is unlikely that Chip & Dale will get their own Disney Treasures DVD release with only three cartoons.
Unlike most of the Cartoon Favorites series DVDs, this installment mostly features cartoons not yet available on the Disney Treasures series. The descriptions are already included above, so I will give the duplication run down here:
CHIP AND DALE (1947)- NEW TO DVD but expected to be on the Disney Treasures: Chronological Donald volume 3 to be released this Dec. 11 2007.
TREE FOR BREAKFAST (1948) - NEW TO DVD but expected to be on the Disney Treasures: Chronological Donald volume 3 to be released this Dec. 11 2007.
OUT ON A LIMB (1950) - NEW TO DVD but expected to be on the Disney Treasures: Chronological Donald volume 3 to be released this Dec. 11 2007.
FOOD FOR FEUDIN' (1950) - Only cartoon already released on "Disney Treasures: Complete Pluto volume 2".
OUT OF SCALE (1951) - NEW TO DVD, not yet announced for any Donald Duck release.
CHICKEN IN THE ROUGH (1951) - NEW TO DVD - solo Chip & Dale cartoon.
TWO CHIPS AND A MISS (1952) - NEW TO DVD - solo Chip & Dale cartoon.
WORKING FOR PEANUTS (1953) - NEW TO DVD, not yet announced for any Donald Duck release.
DRAGON AROUND (1954) - NEW TO DVD, not yet announced for any Donald Duck release.
Bottom line: This is a MUST GET DVD!
Now comes this new series, and I immediately had to snatch up the Chip `n' Dale collection. We get just under an hour of entertainment...a cross section of Chip `n' Dale's history. Although I don't have young kids anymore, the whole family enjoyed a little trip down memory lane with these undeniably funny characters. All the episodes where the two chipmunks torment poor Donald Duck are just hilarious.
I highly recommend this affordable romp!
Unfortunately the package itself leads to some serious questioning. To begin, none of the cartoons appear to have been restored - the transfers are particularly shoddy. Compared to the Disney Treasures sets, the cartoons on this disc look very dark and dull - this is very unfortunate as it does little justice to the incredible talents of the Disney production studio. Having compared a few of the shorts that are included on this set to their counterparts on The Chronological Donald Volume 3, I can say that I am very disappointed.
Secondly, like other reviewers here on Amazon, I question the selection of cartoons for the disc. While there are some very funny cartoons on the disc, I would have loved to see The Lone Chipmunk, a short that is likely not to appear on the Disney Treasures sets. At least the set does include Chicken in the Rough (a fantastic short) and Two Chips and a Miss, both solo outings. Most of the shorts will showcase what made Chip n' Dale such great antagonists for the ever irascible (and ever hilarious) Donald Duck.
The DVD is saved, perhaps, by its low price. At $9.99 USD this DVD is a real bargain. While I regret that the presentation is of very low quality, the simple fact is that the disc has sixty minutes of hilarious cartoons is well worth the entry fee.Read more ›
