They started it all
4 March 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Bear Country, together with Beaver Valley and Seal Island, started the True Life Adventures craze at cinemas all over the world. The Disney Company ought to put them out on DVD as a box set with all the nature movies put together.

These adventures started people's interest for nature, and set a standard for that category. All those pictures DESERVE TO BE PUBLIC AGAIN. In Norway, during the fifties and early sixties the True Life Adventures series topped the box office in Norway. And when Norway got a state run television i 1960, the Disneyland shows caught the most viewers. So, they really deserve to get place on DVD.

All fans and collectors. All The True Life Adventures will be released under the title, Walt Disney's Legacy Collection, in four dbl volumes on dec.5 2006. Jørn Back, Norway
