Trivia

This is the first feature-length film created by Walt Disney Productions, preceding the release of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" by 7 months. It is however a compilation film, consisting of five Disney short films which had already won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. Due to the lack of original material, it is often discounted by film historians. See more »

Alright, however could be skipped
26 October 2016 | by yoshi-46172See all my reviews

A alright compilation film of the silly symphonies. If you can find it give it a watch.The shorts that they select for the film are all Oscar winner hens the title. However the film is short. It only just makes the length of a feature film, however there is a 1966 version. This version has 4 more shorts including the ugly duckling, However it is missing the live action sequences but is a longer. The 1966 is available on VHS however so that is a plus.However the films were not designed to be watched as a package film they are shorts, so there is nothing linking them apart from the fact that they won Oscars. On the whole you could probably skip this one if you have watched all the silly symphonies multiple times
