Before computer graphics, special effects wizardry, and out-of-this world technology, the magic of animation flowed from the pencils of two of the greatest animators The Walt Disney Company ever produced -- Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. Frank and Ollie, the talent behind BAMBI, PINOCCHIO, LADY AND THE TRAMP, THE JUNGLE BOOK, and others, set the standard for such modern-day hits as THE LION KING. It was their creative genius that helped make Disney synonymous with brilliant animation, magnificent music, and emotional storytelling. Take a journey with these extraordinary artists as they share secrets, insights, and the inspiration behind some of the greatest animated movies the world has ever known!|This documentary feature film about the lives and careers of legendary Disney animators Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnson, made by Thomas' son, Ted Thomas, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 1995.

The documentary is informative and very entertaining with insight and humor told by these two very talented men who formed a life long friendship. The main feature runs about a hour and forty minutes.
The bonus material is also very good, but there is a really irritating misstep in the menu. There is no Play All feature. Normally this wouldn't be a big deal, but the bonus material is broken up in 5 segments with 15 or so sub-segments. The lengths of these features range from 1 minute to 10 minutes all totaling around 45-55 minutes. Not having a Play All feature means that every couple minutes you have to go to the bonus menu and select another portion of these segments. It becomes tedious very quickly and brings my overall rating down a star.
This is certainly no reason to keep from buying this DVD and if you're a fan of the behind the scenes stuff or Disney animation fan, you'll want to add this to your collection.
