So...not the Sweatbox they're including on the Pinocchio disk, then?Ben wrote:Wouldn't we all! And you're only speaking about the publicized recent stuff. While even I would say Dream On Silly Dreamer would be too flammable to officially include in a Disney DVD package, The Sweatbox would be fantastic in an Emperor's New Groove edition...though until certain people leave the company or are indeed passed away, it's unlikely we'll ever see it.
(As for "Dreamer"...a nice bit of historical handwringing, but do we still watch then-contemporary documentaries that had their historical ticket punched after the object of their handwringing was dispensed with?:
Will we still watch anti-Bush documentaries in the Obama administration, and will we still watch "Well, that's it, game over, we're toast!" anti-Eisner documentaries in the Iger/Lasseter administration?)
Ohh, yeah--I remember F&H pulling ALL the "We made Pinocchio, you know!" strings to try and get us to see it in '81.The Fox And The Hound's release was marked by a 90 minute documentary on Disney Animation: The Illusion Of Life, hosted by Hayley Mills and basically focusing on two films: Pinocchio and Fox And The Hound. Frank and Ollie speak about their work on Pinocchio, while Glen Keane reveals early footage of the bear fight in Fox/Hound and we see Pearl Bailey in the studio recording her songs...not a jot of that appeared on the DVD and while the upcoming Pinocchio might also be a neat home for it, it won't show up there either.
They were just lucky it had a documentary--Think "Cauldron" had something too, but they weren't as desperate back then.
I was disappointed with the package put together for Sleeping Beauty and am already disappointed that Pinocchio will not include several <I>obvious</I> extras: the short-lived Jiminy Cricket education series of <I>I'm No Fool</I> shorts for a start.
Leonard Maltin's no fool, either, having been hounded for a "Disney Educational" Treasures set for the last nine years.
