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.
