|This fascinating volume features some of Walt’s most unique animated triumphs. Included are several of Walt’s "The Alice Comedies," a pioneering series of early short films that combined live-action and animation. These wonderful, lesser-known unique films pre-date much of the work that would make him world-famous. Fans will enjoy the unique animation of "Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom," which won an Academy Award® (Best Short Subject (Cartoon) 1953) and was the first cartoon produced in Cinemascope. This short film established a completely new animation style for the Studio.

|"The Adventures of Spin and Marty" ran on Walt’s original The Mickey Mouse Club television program. This beloved series follows two boys who meet at a summer boys ranch and share adventures together. Marty Markham (David Stollery) is a wealthy city kid who meets Spin Evans (Tim Considine), the most popular camper from the previous summer. The two don’t get along at first, but over twenty-five exciting episodes and many escapades, the boys become friends. The series also starred Harry Carey, Jr., Roy Barcroft and J. Pat O’Malley.
Following this popular introductory serial, the second and third Mickey Mouse Club seasons brought "Further Adventures of Spin and Marty" and "The New Adventures of Spin and Marthy" in the late 1950s, but neither of those will be presented in this set.
The Complete First Year (1955-56) contains 25 episodes: Tragedy, Perkins' Decision, The Triple R, The Misfit, White Stallion, Froggy Day, The Battle, A Surprise Decision, Homesick, Logan's Lesson, The Chase, The Secret Ride, Ride 'Em Cowboy, The Snipe Hunt, Sky Rocket's Trick, The Last Campfire, Tossing the Calf, Rope Artist, Nothing Happens on a Sunday, Perkins and the Bear, The Runaway, Haunted Valley, The Live Ghost, The Big Rodeo, Off on the Wrong Foot

|Inspired by true life heroes, these are two of Walt’s most exciting television shows, ELFEGO BACA and THE SWAMP FOX. Elfego Baca is a late-19th century gunfighter (Robert Loggia) in the old west who changes his ways to become sheriff and then a lawyer. Elfego deals with rampaging cowboys, outlaws and more in this exciting series about law and order on the frontier. The Swamp Fox stars Leslie Nielsen (who starred in the classic film "Forbidden Planet," and would later become famous for the "Airplane" and "Naked Gun" movies) as Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion. This patriot fought the British using unusual methods, and became known as "The Swamp Fox."In this superb series, Marion matches wits with the Tories in a story of adventure and action.
Elfego Baca: Nine Lives of Elfego Baca, Four Down and Five Lives to Go, Attorney at Law (1958-59)
The Swamp Fox: Birth of the Swamp Fox, Brother Against Brother, Tory Vengeance (1959-60)
