    Re: Walt Disney Treasures Discussion Thread.

    I got my copy of the Disneyland dvd today and I'm very disappointed the widescreen formatting wasn't done properly.

    I know the old footage will be 4:3 which is fine, but the new footage that was shot in widescreen does not display properly on a widescreen tv. Depending on the setup you have, you'll either get 4 black bars on all sides of the picture, or it'll be stretched, or you'll be zoomed in to get real 16:9, in which case you'll lose video on 4:3 clips.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the dvd set so far and I love being able to watch all this incredibly interesting stuff, but I thought I'd mention this for anyone else with widescreen tvs.

    I could have gotten them yesterday, if the mail person didn't decide to give me a note instead. He could have just putted them under my mat (I live in a apartment, btw). So, *sighs* I have to wait for the mail person to re-deliver them to me, on Friday.

    I've watched all of Oswald - both discs. It's neat seeing Disney's origins. The documentary on Ub Iwerks is very well done even though it was done a few years back. The shorts are all excellent, however, this set may only appeal to those that have a passion for history of Disney or silent film.

    I haven't watched any of Donald Volume 2 yet and I'm getting Disneyland for Christmas so I have to wait for that one.

    Yeah, I love the history when it comes to them. Hopefully it teaches you, why was Steamboat Willie was so awesome in it's day.

    Re: Walt Disney Treasures Discussion Thread.

    ok now that we all have the 2007 wave, any speculation on the 2008 sets?
    we all know that Vol4 of Donald will probably be on the list but any guesses as to what else there might be?? There are roughly 40 more Donald toons from what I can find out but wether or not Disney does 1 or 2 sets is a questions my gut says 2 (history of greed)
    Maybe a set of the educations toons is a possibility (jiminy cricket shorts)
    rumors of Song of the South making a comeback in this form have been around for years but I really dont see that happening
    Actually I would like to see a set devoted to Epcot and the history of that project
    so much of that idea never came close to happening and Walt had such a vision of it
    theres lot to tell

    anyone have ideas?

    AGREED!

    I would love to see "Disneyland Showtime" on DVD and all those attraction preview episodes. I have several of the "Disneyland" episodes on VHS from when they used to air on "Vault Disney".

    I also have almost all the "Zorro" episodes on VHS as well. I know that Disney has released Season 1 on DVD but only through the Disney Movie Club thing. I wish they would release them to the general public because I'm pretty sure it would sell like hot cakes.

    I loved the "Disneyland" DVD. Hearing stories from Tony Baxter, Bruce Gordon, X. Atencio and the other Disney Icons was awesome. Cant wait to watch the rest of it over the holiday weekend.

    Re: Walt Disney Treasures Discussion Thread.

    I just watched a good deal of the Oswald one, so far. As I said before, I love to learn about the history of the Disney animation or beginnings.

    It was interesting to see more of why "Steamboad Willie" was considered awesome in thoses days, when comes about the sounding.

    The only (???) While looking at Oswald and thinking of Early Mickey. Was that Oswald seems to be a little more well behaved then Mickey did in the begining. But of course they weren't showing off sounding in the Oswald cartoons, in which maybe some of the reasons. Have you noticed, that?
