Long before Animal Planet existed, Walt Disney's True-Life Adventures awakened viewers to the wonders of the natural world. Disney began the series in 1946 with Seal Island, and the six features and seven featurettes won eight Academy Awards.


Listen to our interview
with director emeritus
Roy E. Disney
.
One winner was Bear Country (1953), which is included in Creatures of the Wild, along with The African Lion (1955), Jungle Cat (1959) and The Olympic Elk (1952). Each film traces the course of one year in the life of its subject. Lionesses hunt to feed their cubs (and their glorious but idle mates) on Serengeti Plains. A pair of jaguars in the Amazon and a mother bear in Yellowstone Park raise their cubs, teaching them to find food and avoid predators. Magnificent bull elk fight for mates in the high meadows of the Olympic Mountains. Except for the narration occasionally seeming a little forced or obvious, these documentaries wear their age lightly. The prints have been lovingly restored: scratches and dirt have been removed; the color looks pristine. Artists and scientists will find useful reference material here, and children will enjoy the pageant of nature. Sadly, many of the ecological communities that seemed as inexhaustible as they were beautiful in the 1950's have been severely damaged during the intervening decades by human encroachment, poaching, and climate change. The two-disc set is loaded with extras, including two black-and-white Disneyland shows from the 1950's. (Rated G, suitable for ages 6 and older: some hunting sequences may be too intense for very small children)--Charles Solomon

I have fond memories of seeing the True Life Adventure films on the Disney TV show growing up, as well as in re-release in theatres, and this volume contains one of my favorites, BEAR COUNTRY. The other 3 films are also very enjoyable, with THE AFRICAN LION being a standout. These restored versions are lovely and really allow you to experience nature's majesty.

The extras are also quite good, especially FILMMAKER'S JOURNAL, which features recent interviews with people involved in making these movies. It's really amazing what these people went through to film these adventures.

These films helped form my love of nature as a child. Here's hoping they can still have that affect on kids today.

The complete Walt Disney "True Life Adventures" series is now available on very high quality DVD. Nothing filmed since comes up to these. Buy them all, and sit down with your family for spell-binding entertainment. My vote for the highlight of Volume 3 is "Bear Country". It is set in Yellowstone National Park, and in addition to the bears, you get to see into the hole of a geyser.

It's so rare to find such a gem as the True Life Adventures. If you can, I suggest all! We have 3 of them and LOVE them all! Such quality visually, and stunning! Love the sounds of the "old" narration. So charming, yet so informative. Our four kids are TOTALLY loving this!!! :) So happy with my purchase!

A shame the Disney nature films are no longer being filmed. I loved the series as a child. Was a bit disappointed that one scene in the original "Jungle Cat" movie was not included in this copy., the reason for giving it a "four stars" rather than a "five"

My father referred to the classic Disney film "Olympic Elk" for several years. When the video finally became available on DVD, I bought a copy for him, and one for myself.

This film follows the life cycle of the elk which reside in Olympic National Park. The animal photography is excellent, especially considering the time it was produced. The remote setting is stunning. I visited the area with my son in 2007. We saw several elk ourselves, while there. Watching this video brings back special memories of that trip.

Don't miss this classic family film.

This is probably the penultimate set for our boys. They loved "Jungle Cat" and the "African Lion" from when we had them on VHS when they were little. These new sets with all the remastered footage and vast amounts of features are really worth the price. I'm glad we picked them up.
