Disney 30's and 40's TTT

Going back 70 years in today's Time Travel Tuesday.

Disney movies- the ultimate bubbling cauldron of hope.

SOME DAY MY PRINCE WILL COME, Sno White, 1937.


WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK, 1937. I'm not a big fan of Snow White's voice, but maybe a little whistle will help with my nano.


Seems whistling was super-popular back in the day. GIVE A LITTLE WHISTLE, Pinocchio, 1940.


WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR, Pinocchio, 1940


THE SORCERER'S APPRENTICE, Fantasia, 1940.


PINK ELEPHANTS ON PARADE, Dumbo, 1941. Er, yeah, he's drunk. Disney was interesting back in the day. I don't think there's ever been a better anti-drinking campaign!


WHEN I SEE A ELEPHANT FLY caused some controversy. It's supposedly racist. I'm black, and whatever. Great song.


THE THREE CABALLEROS, 1945. Donald Duck, Jose Carioca and Panchito Pistoles. This film was actually released in Mexico before the US.


ZIP-A-DEE-DOO-DAH, Soung of the South, 1946. Another controversial joint.


LAVENDER BLUE, So Dear to My heart, 1948.


And, yes, I've seen all of these.

PS. Random fact. Clarence Nash plays Donald Duck in 1945's Three Caballeros. In English, Spanish and Portuguese. If that ain't the ultimate proof that noone can understand Donald Duck, I don't know what is :)
