Lady and the Tramp by AverageJoeArtwork
Lady and the Tramp
DAY 35


Today we've got Lady & the Tramp, Disney's 15th animated film.
I think this was the first 1950s Disney animated film I saw, & I liked it. It's still good to this day. The story is the "clashing cultures romance story", but done before it was done to death. They're not stereotypes of their roles anyway; they do want to learn about their other lives & legit care. The animation is really great & stylized. It being from a dog's perspective (especially with seeing no humans at all), the modern atmosphere, it's also probably the smoothest. The characters are good, with great voice-acting (take a shot every time you hear Bill Thompson) & nice quirks to them. The songs are very soft, but it works. The cats might be racist a bit, but it depends on who views them. Besides, it makes up for it with one of the most famous kisses in all of cinema.

Roger Rabbit shorts by AverageJoeArtwork
Roger Rabbit shorts
DAY 34


After the big success of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Disney decided to make some follow-up...ish shorts that would be released with various Disney films. Tummy Trouble in 1989, Roller Coaster Rabbit in 1990 & Trail Mix-Up in 1991.
Instead of focusing on any mysteries & what-not, these are Roger & Baby Herman shorts, like the one that started the original film. They all have the same formula: Roger tries to save Baby herman, he gets all the pain, cameos by Jessica and Droopy (the later being more pointless) & ending with a live-action animation combo. To be honest, I've never been a fan of those "Buttons & Mindy" type of shorts; where the babysitter goes through heaven & hell to keep the baby safe. The dedication the sitter has I'm fine with, it's just can't the guy catch a break? They never do! That's exactly what I feel with Roger here. Even AFTER the short is done, Roger's called out for doing his job? I will say this: the animation for all three is fantastic. They all have the same energy & timing like Richard Williams was there (even though he wasn't) My personal favorite is Roller Coaster Rabbit, just for the climax. Maybe that's just because of the similarities of that & Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah from Disneyland Fun, which has Roger going on roller coasters. In fact, if I'm listening to that version of ZADDD, I usually cut to the end of RCR when the kids ask "Where's Roger". Try it!

Shake it Up, ANT Farm by AverageJoeArtwork
Shake it Up, ANT Farm
DAY 33


Today we've got 2 Disney Channel Original Series from... the early 2010s I think? Shake it Up and ANT Farm.
I didn't ever watch these 2, but I remember seeing ads, commercials & what have you. I don't even think they lasted very long & I'm not sure what people thought it them. From what I can gather, both shows are pretty cliche with the themes of "going against the norm"; Shake it Up with not being just background dancers & ANT Farm not be pushed down by the the upper class/grade. This was probably the briefest description yet.

Ratatouille by AverageJoeArtwork
Ratatouille
DAY 32


Ratatouille, the second PIXAR film by Brad Bird, uploaded for Groundhog's Day. Yeah, I know it's a real stretch, but in my research, I don't think Disney's used a groundhog yet in their stuff. But, according to Harold Ramis, groundhogs are really just rats anyway, so... it counts?
This I see was a bit better than the Incredibles. The animation was great (especially the food & the atmosphere), the characters were fun, lots of first-time voice-actors (you were introduced to Patton by this, weren't you), the story might get a little confusing & sidetracked (I guess) but it's not bad. The concept of filthy disgusting creatures working in a high-scale kitchen is nothing new There's been cut-away lines & a whole Jeff Moss song about it, but it's got a new twist with it & you'll be hungry for more. Anyone can cook!

Mother Goose, Little House, Cowboy Needs a Horse by AverageJoeArtwork
Mother Goose, Little House, Cowboy Needs a Horse
DAY 31


Here are three shorts from the mid-50s that are pretty child-friendly & all stylized: The Truth About Mother Goose, the Little House and Every Cowboy Needs a Horse.
The Truth About Mother Goose is hosted by 3 jesters, telling the audience the true stories behind the stories. Did you know Little Jack Horner was actually a thief & stole the deed of a house from King Henry VIIII? Did you know Mary Mary Quite Contrary was actually Mary Queen of Scots? Did you know London Bridge was real & got ruined multiple times? Now you do! It's interesting to hear of these true allegories from these famous nursery rhymes & the animation's good.
The Little House is based off the children's book by Virginia lee Burton. It's about the life of a little cottage & the life it's had, going from a married couple moving in to almost getting demolished. It's really sweet, Sterling Holloway's a good narrator & seeing it now, it's got a bit of vibes from PIXAR's Up.
Every Cowboy needs a Horse is about the dream a little boy has, where he imagines himself a cowboy in the ol' west. He fights off Indians, battles outlaws, saves a damsel, all that good stuff. I remember hearing the title song on one of Disney's sing-along home videos & was good. The rest of it's good too, although it can go by pretty fast.

Well, that, and I just wanted to know when you'll check out the Eds' perspective in See No Ed. I want to see what you think ASAP.

I read it (boy, it was published fast!) & it was pretty good. My favorite was the kids admitting to the Eds themselves that as much as they hate them, they DO need them for excitement in their lives.
