DECENT SHORTS BUT NOT NEW

"As the other reviewer mentioned many of these shorts are on the various Disney Treasures collections so if you own those then you'll want to avoid this eight short feature collection. The eight shorts on this hour-long DVD are all music themed and while they don't represent the best Disney shorts they are fairly decent.
"Mickey's Grand Opera" is from 1936
"Music Land" is a Silly Symphony from 1935 that doesn't feature any Disney Characters.
"Orphan's Benefit" is from 1941 and has Mickey, Donald, and others putting on a show for orphan kids.
"Farmyard Symphony" from 1938 is another Silly Symphony without benefit of Mickey or any of the other stable of characters. It's a symphony set to the sounds of the barnyard animals...
"Pluto's Blue Note" is from 1947 and probably the best short on this DVD. Pluto finds he can use his tail as a phonograph.
"How to Dance" In the 1950's, Disney made a series of "how to" shorts featuring goofy demonstrating various activities. They were all pretty good. This one from 1953 has Goofy showing off various dance syles.
"woodland Cafe" One more Silly Symphony from 1937.
"Donald's Dilemma" 1947 - After getting hit in the head with a flower pot, Donald thinks he's a famous crooner and no longer recognizes Daisy...until she clocks him with another pot.
The fact that three of the shorts are Silly Symphonies without Disney characters is going to really limit the appeal of this DVD to kids in my mind and since some of the other shorts can be found in the Treasures collections it won't have much appeal to Disney collectors either so I'm not so sure about this one.

"Alot of us don't have the Treasures set. I've seen everyone of these shorts, and they're a great collection! If you don't have the treasures set, this DVD is worth its money!

"A friend has this, which impressed me. I own the "Starring Mickey" DVD, and my 2 1/2 year old daughter is fascinated with the old cartoons. They have a charm that rivets her unlike any of the current cartoons or Dora type of stuff. I'm sure that part of the reason is that they are filled with slapstick comedy that isn't considered as "correct" for kids these days --- but wow, Disney sure did know what kids like! The "Starring Mickey" DVD has a scene with Goofy and a piano, and its the first time I've heard my daughter laugh out loud at something she was watching by herself. Fantastic hour long collections, with auto play, gotta love it!
And please, people writing about "Treasures" collections or what not -- these are inexpensive DVDs for average fans of Disney -- leave the pricey collections to real collectors, these DVDs are great for the rest of us!"
