Did You Know?
While relatively well received at the time of its release, one main criticism against this film is that not all its segments are of equal quality and impact. The segments about Johnny Appleseed and Pecos Bill received the most praise since they are sagas which follow their protagonists from the beginning to the end of their careers. Animation historians Jerry Beck and Steven Watts praised some aspects and segments of the film as highly creative and memorable, and dismissed the rest as forgettable filler. See more
[introduction to "Little Toot"
Master of Ceremonies
There's drama, there's excitement, and there's harmony for three in a story of adventure on the sea. Now, featured in this epic is a ship of proud design. No, it's not this ocean liner. We take a different line. So with a huff and a puff and a chug-chug-chug, and a perky little hoot, we introduce our hero, the tugboat, Little Toot.
In 1998 Disney changed the "Pecos Bill" segment. They cut a scene of Bill rolling a smoke and digitally removed all other shots of the offending cigarette hanging from his lips. The cigarette was edited out in each case resulting in the removal of almost the entire tornado sequence and some odd hand and mouth movements for Bill throughout. The UK DVD had these scenes uncut.
