Fun anthology that holds 4 shorts inspired by a trip through South-America. The interesting part is that you see the Disney crew enjoying their little vacation and making some sketches based on their impressions, accompanied by the shorts that evolved from them. It's short, charming and amusing, definitely one of Disney's better efforts.

Worthy but flawed

A compilation of two slightly beefier Disney shorts, connected by short Jiminy Cricket interludes and some strange live action scenes. The Bongo one is decent but a little too long, the Jack and the Beanstalk one has been done so many times now that it really started to drag after a while. Not that great really, but short.

Plain forgettable

The film that showed other animated anthologies the way. For that I am grateful, because I'm a big fan of the format, but the combination of classical music and the Disney aesthetic isn't that big of a success. The interaction between the animation and the music also isn't all that great. Not great.

Big nopes

Irritation overload
