One of Disney's early director/animators who put the big mouse on the map. Kinney was involved in some of Disney's most pivotal early productions and stands as one of the grandfathers of animation. Essential, just not a big fan myself.

The inoffensive

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.
