Synopsis
This extraordinary volume of rare Disney magic showcases some fascinating characters never before seen together. From Walt's earliest work in the 1920s to some of his most sophisticated shorts of the 1950s and '60s, he captured the imaginations of millions plus two Academy Award® wins and eight nominations all included in this volume.

Among the gems is Walt's first hit cartoon series, 1923's Laice's Wonderland, which married live action and animation. And you'll get to meet the little girl who played Alice, Virginia Davis. Other unforgettable characters, experimental shorts, and "one-shot" cartoons include Ferdinand The Bull (Academy Award® winner, Best Short, 1938), Noah's Ark, and Paul Bunyan.
