TIMELESS TALES Volume Three
CASEY AT THE BAT ( originaly a segment in Make Mine Music which is on DVD )
Here is a wonderful animated version of the famous baseball story, about a player who thinks too highly of himself. The Mudville Nine are behind in the game, but Casey, the mightiest player on the field, is due to bat in the ninth inning. Everybody thinks that Casey will win the game for his team, especially Casey. However, Casey is not only the biggest player, he's also the most vain and over-confident one.
LITTLE HIAWATHA (1937 also on the Pocahontas II DVD)
This story tells of the positive consequences of a good deed. A little Indian boy wants to be a mighty hunter and goes out in the forest to prove it. But he cannot kill a bunny that crosses his path, an act which endears him to the woodland creatures who later rescue him from a grizzly bear.
THE WISE LITTLE HEN (1934 repeat from the Donald Duck Vol #1 DVD Tin)
This historic animated short features the very first appearance of Donald Duck! When a mother hen needs help planting corn and harvesting it, Donald and his friend Peter Pig decide they don't want to work hard. The mother hen is forced to do the work herself, with the help of her chicks. When the corn is harvested and the mother hen makes delicious meals, Donald and Peter Pig find they're not invited to dinner.
THE GOLDEN TOUCH (1935 repeat from the Silly Symphonies DVD Tin)
Directed by Walt Disney himself, this story tells about the consequences of greed. King Midas wants to amass more treasure, and a magical dwarf grants him the power to turn anything he touches into gold. But Midas finds out that he can longer eat, because when he touches his food, it turns to gold. His lesson learned, Midas gives up his golden touch and all his treasures, in exchange for a hamburger.
MORRIS THE MIDGET MOOSE (1950 repeat from the Disney Rarities DVD Tin)
This story tells of overcoming adversity through teamwork. Morris is the laughingstock of the whole moose herd because he is very small with full-size antlers. Morris meets another outcast moose, Balsam, who is huge but has tiny antlers, and the two moose team up. With Morris on Balsam's back, Morris uses his antlers and Balsam uses his height to beat the leader of the herd.
BEN AND ME (1953 repeat from the Disney Rarities DVD Tin)
This is a tale of achieving great things, no matter how you start out. Amos, a poor little church mouse, comes to live with Benjamin Franklin. Through Amos's suggestions, the Franklin stove and bifocals are invented, and the opening words of the Declaration of Independence are provided.

"Disney's short subjects are the best. No CGI here; just pure and simple animation with great story telling. This is one not to miss."
