Remember watching some of these shorts in school on actual film and they played some on Donald Duck presents in the 80’s on the Disney channel. Good times! It’s to bad people will get offended by some of these and Disney will just sweep them under the rug and you will never see them again.

I had seen these early films before but thought I'd catch them again. Unfortunately the 2 disk set I checked out was so badly damaged it wouldn't play any more (even after cleaning). Looked like a pepperoni pizza that had been sandpapered.
Too bad

This fairly enjoyable 2-disc set from Disney Studios contains 30 short, animated films from the years spanning between 1923-1962.

With running times that ranged from between 7-20 minutes in length, a good number of these cartoons featured stories that were just a tad too sentimental in nature, and, generally speaking, their overall violence was noticeably toned-down when compared to the likes of Looney Tunes from Warner Bros. Studios.

A few of my very favorites in this fine collection were - A Cowboy Needs A Horse, Jack And Old Mac, and, Pigs Is Pigs.

To be honest, I didn't much care about the seven silent-era, "Alice" shorts, which mixed live-action with animation. As an adult, their juvenile mindset just didn't appeal to me.
