Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom (1953) Poster

Alternate Versions

Black stereotypes have been cut from this short on the DVD version.
Like many of Disney's early Cinemascope films, a "flat" version shot in 4:3 ratio was made for theaters that were not equipped for Cinemascope. This required rearranging the artwork for some shots to accommodate the smaller screen. Shots of multiple repeated characters (like the bird chorus at the end, for instance) were literally cut in half, using two repetitions instead of four. The most notable change comes at the transition from the end of the "Boom" section to the parade that starts the finale. In the Cinemascope version, the background and characters fade out, leaving the drum in the last scene alone; the drum then jumps from the side of the screen to the center, and the parade fades in. In the flat version, the camera zooms in on the drum, dissolves into the parade and zooms back out.
