<center><b><u>New on DVD - Collectible Storybook Included In Each Volume</u>

Walt Disney's
TIMELESS TALES
Volumes One & Two

<u>On DVD August 16</u></center></b>

BURBANK, Calif., July 29, 2005 – Presenting <b>Walt Disney’s TIMELESS TALES Volumes One and
Two</b>, two new collections of favorite stories on DVD that every child will enjoy. These classic, timehonored
stories, carefully chosen from the Disney vault, are sure to delight and entertain your child for
years to come. With beautiful animation, unforgettable music and ageless themes about liking yourself
for who you are and the value of preparing for the future, each <b>TIMELESS TALES</b> volume is a must own
for every family. Each volume is available for $19.99 (SRP) from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.

<b>Walt Disney’s TIMELESS TALES Volumes One and Two</b> both feature a collectible, full-color DVD
storybook. Volume One has a storybook of Walt Disney’s “The Prince and the Pauper.” Volume Two
has a storybook of Walt Disney’s “The Wind In The Willows.” Each volume also has “Parent Tips,”
advice for parents on sharing with children the joy of the enduring stories of TIMELESS TALES.

<center><b><u>VOLUME ONE:</b></u></center>

<b><u>The Prince And The Pauper</b></u> – Mickey, Donald and Goofy star in the classic animated story of mistaken
identities.

<b><u>The Three Little Pigs</b></u> – This milestone of Disney animation features the now-famous song “Who’s Afraid
of the Big Bad Wolf?” and won the Academy Award® for Best Animated Short, 1933.

<b><u>The Tortoise And The Hare</b></u> – Disney’s animated version of the famous fable won an Academy Award®
for Best Animated Short, 1935.

<b><u>The Grasshopper and the Ants</b></u> – In this animated treat, a lazy grasshopper prefers to sing and dance
rather than forage like his friends the ants. When winter comes, the ants save the grasshopper in return for
musical entertainment. The film introduced the now-classic song “The World Owes Me A Living.”

<b><u>The Pied Piper</b></u> – An animated version of the legendary fable. When the Pied Piper lures the rats from
Hamelin Town but is not paid in gold, he leads the children of the town away to the magical Garden of
Happiness.

Age” of the Disney Studio.

Academy Award® for Best Animated Short, 1938. Walt Disney himself is caricatured among the
characters at the bullfight.

<b><u>The Country Cousin</b></u> –When Abner, a mouse from Podunk, visits his big city cousin Monty, he learns that
the city may not be the best place for him. This film won the Academy Award® for Best Animated Short,

So it's basically the most popular shorts put together in two volumes. Interesting, but I don't think I'll buy it.

Thanks, Luke.

$20 bucks for each, huh man I need to get a job.:) But they look like great movies. I didn't know that some of them one the Academy Award, that's really interesting I guess they're very good cartoons.

Those were released in Finland a while ago and they're very cheap, but I don't think I'm buying them as long as the treasures include the same shorts as these. I see those good for them who don't really care for Treasures and for collectors of course, the covers are actually quite tempting to be honest.

You probably already know that Lambert the Sheepish Lion is on the "Melody Time" DVD..... Hopefully Goliath II will be in the Treasures this December. I LOVE Goliath II, so I am really crossing my fingers.

Actually, no I didn't. I haven't actively been searching for them though. Must buy Melody Time.

LLLLLLLLLLLLLambert! I love that one.

And I miss Goliath the II. I use to have a little porcelain elephant when I was a kid that was the size of a dime. He was my Goliath II and I lost him and haven't been very lucky since :(

This is "Another wave of Disney DVD's in the cartoon compalation cannon hence, the title of my review. Its not for me and like the "Classic Cartoon Favorites" they are double dipped. Furthermore, the cartoons that are new to DVD will be on the Treasures eventually. Besides, this series aims at young kids with the themes of liking yourself for who you are and the value of preparing for the future ETC. Overall, this series will be great for the small frys but teens, adults, and collectors might want to stay away from them.

Can I ask two questions to do with the Timeless Tales Vol 2 set?

1. Where was Ferdinand the Bull originally censored? I understand that it has some disturbing elements (the bullfighting, silly :P) and that the short is set in Spain, so did they edit for reasons related to violence and/or racism?

2. Is The Wind in the Willows short simply plucked out of Ichabod and Mr Toad? What I mean is the short not having a title card saying "The Wind in the Willows" and a bit of editing at the end to disguise that Ichabod's tale wasn't next to be told. I remember that our video of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow had seperate title cards to the anthology feature and skipped the little talky transition from Mr Toad's tale highlighting American legends, so I was wondering if something similar happened for The Wind in the Willows on the Timeless Tales DVD.

Thanks!
