Chicago – Walt Disney Home Video isn’t all about “Hannah Montana” or “Toy Story 3.” At the end of last month, they released a trio of informative documentaries about the fascinating history of their own company. None of the three are must-see viewing, but they do combine to offer a glimpse at the incredibly legacy of one of the most important American companies in history.

You may not know the names Robert and Richard Sherman but you absolutely know their work. The Sherman Brothers, the subject (and fathers) of Jeffrey C. Sherman & Gregory V. Sherman’s documentary “The Boys,” not only wrote some of the most memorable Disney songs of all time but simply wrote more movie songs than any other pair of songwriters in film history.
The brothers became legends after joining Walt Disney in 1961, as his company was about to begin a string of belove musicals. »

At some point in the chronology of me dealing with Tangled, a complicated psychological rollercoaster for this lifelong Rapunzel lover, I had completely forgotten (or maybe never known?) that it was to be the 50th Disney animated feature.
I think I wasn't counting the compilation films but Disney does. Here's a helpful reminder from Disney of that rich history (which I saw courtesy of All Things Fangirl). How many have you seen?
The video comes after the jump.
The ones I've seen are in bold. Some I haven't seen so childhood so I dare not "rank" them though it's tempting to imagine watching them all chronologically and doing so... I just need a free 300 hours or so to watch and write up. Easy. Links go to previous posts if there are any -- every time an animated film comes out I realize it may be the biggest deficiency here at Tfe. »

Today, Tangled hits theaters and marks the release of Disney Animation Studio’s 50th film. To celebrate the occasion, Disney has released a short video that counts all fifty films set to the song “Dreams” by Brandi Carlile. I don’t know why they didn’t set it to a song from one of the animated Disney movies instead, but Carlile’s song works fine. Hit the jump to check out the video.
And if you can’t name all the films by sight, here’s the list:
1.) Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
2.) Pinocchio (1940)
3.) Fantasia (1940)
4.) Dumbo (1941)
5.) Bambi (1942)

The Adventures of Icabod and Mr. Toad
This week marks the release of Disney’s Tangled, a fresh, critically-acclaimed adaptation of the age-old Rapunzel story and the 50th animated feature produced by Disney Animation. But the celebration is bittersweet, accompanied by the news that the studio is moving on from its magical, musical roots.
The La Times ran a piece over the weekend, titled “Disney Animation is closing the book on fairy tales,” lamenting the end of an era and laden with somber quotes about the waning performance of Disney princesses. The outlet focuses on the studio’s decision to rework the movie to a more gender-neutral story after the “poorly performing” release The Princess and the Frog (it made $267M worldwide). Thus, with one perceived disappointment and another hoping to find an audience mere days after Harry Potter’s arrival, the book of fairy tales is closed?
While Disney Animation is supposedly waving goodbye to its cartoon royalty, »

Unknown White Male has been scheduled for Jan. 7, 2011.
