Includes "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom" Academy Award Winner!
Introduced by rare film footage of Walt Disney—only on these Limited Gold Edition programs—this Cartoon Classics series represents a glittering milestone in home video entertainment! Meet the man whose creative genius fashioned a timeless art form out of pure imagination as you take a nostalgic look at the pioneering days of animation.
THE FABULOUS '50s—Edsels, poodle skirts, "I Like Ike" and hula hoops. For Walt Disney and his staff of animators, the 1950s were marked by transitions and experimentation, resulting in some of the most revolutionary cartoons ever released. The technique of "limited animation" and stylized design won "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom" the Academy Award for Best Cartoon Short Subject of 1953. Breakthrough results were also achieved in "Noah's Ark," which utilized stop-action photography and the animation of stick figures composed of pencils, cork and pipe cleaners. Titles: "Lambert the Sheepish Lion" (Nominee, Cartoon Short Subject, 1951); "Pigs is Pigs" (Nominee, Cartoon Short Subject, 1954); "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom" (Winner, Cartoon Short Subject, 1953); and "Noah's Ark" (Nominee, Cartoon Short Subject, 1959).
