Adventures in Music: Melody (film #15 on Disc 1 of Disney Rarities (Disney, 2005)). [Category: Hollywood]

An owl teaches a class of songbirds about melody. Contentwise, this is full of 50s clich├ęs and stereotypes, but visually, this is delightful, featuring innovative forms of 50s cute-style animation. As usual with Disney, this is beautifully preserved, which is especially important as the color usage in this cartoon is stunning. Wish we could see something this visually arresting in movie theaters today.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
