1 What I was calling amazing was how Disney came up with another great sequel, one that showed effort instead of being a cheapo straight-to-video disgrace to the original with the sole intent of getting kids to make their parents buy it for them. Trust me, it is RARE to see good Disney sequels. All I can think of are Rescuers Down Under and this one. The only good direct-to-video sequel I can think of is An Extremely Goofy Movie. I haven't seen Bambi 2, so I can't make a judgement on it. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 22, 2009, 11:38 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 It's amazing how diluted and poor quality the "Disney" franchise name has come when animated movies are mentioned. The decline in creativity and quality from 1939 to now is staggering. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on September 22, 2009, 9:05 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 @Robert Actually, this isn't so amazing, considering that fantasia 200 was Roy Disneys "baby" whereas the other sequels (with the exception of rescuers down under which was supposed to be a regular disney classic from the very beginning)are cheaply made direct to video productions, just created with the intend to make as much money as possible. No love or effort in those. The only one of this bunch which is (somewhat) watchable is the Bambi sequel (provided that you are able to blend out the stunning original). -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 22, 2009, 8:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I MEANT to say "The Monkees" debuted a quarter century LATER than "Fantasia". Sorry about that! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 27, 2009, 1:36 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Wise words, PeliRojo, but BrewMaster and I are not the same person. Nonetheless, Fantasia still rocks. "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is a classic, and "Night on Bald Mountain" should keep scaring the pants off of kids for generations to come. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 27, 2009, 6:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Shh! Careful, Mythagator! MTV et. al would quickly yowl that they were invented by 'The Monkees' a quarter century earlier. Still, if one wants to take rock music out of the equation as a requirement re music videos, one could go back even further to c.1931 with the musicals of Busby Berkeley from 1931 who eagerly turned dancers' legs,etc. into cogs of many a musical kaleidescope way back then! Check them out and see you think if Disney might have actually drawn some inspiration from them! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 26, 2009, 3:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Might it be said that Disney pioneered Music Videos in 1940? -- Submitted By: (BrewMaster) on August 21, 2009, 11:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Amazing...ANOTHER Disney sequel that was great, along with The Rescuers Down Under! -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 7, 2009, 11:31 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
