    Well this explains why I, as someone born in 1998, did not watch Disney films until I was 12 and actually enjoyed it with Tangled.

    What!? What do you mean the Dark Age films had no songs? "Robin Hood" has songs, "Peter Pan" has songs...basically all of them have at least a couple of songs. They're just not Broadway show-stoppers.
    The animation in "The Rescuers Down Under" was very accomplished. But on the other hand, the story just wasn't that new or ambitious, there were no songs (sung by the characters, at least) the protagonist was...dumb, and the title characters were barely in it! So you can kind of see why it gets over-shadowed by all the other Disney animated movies from that decade. It takes more than great animation to make a high-quality movie.

    Is SuperCarlinBros a Disney sellout? Because they seem to praise Disney a lot and almost never bring up the bad.

    love Jay's shirt. Also Jay you forgot to appreciate Howard Ashford! It was him and Alan Maken working together on those first few movies in the Renaissance that really set it off!

    The Little Mermaid kicked off the Disney Renaissance and Tarzan ended the Disney Renaissance.

    Woohoo! Seen 2 WW2 movies and heard of 4. This is probably because I grew up during "The Dark Age." Anyone who hasn't seen these, need to watch them at least once. You might be surprised at how much you like some of them.. While not the best examples of Disney, they are better than most people are willing to admit.

    My favorite Ren era is Lion King.

    Disney's "dark age" movies Winnie The Pooh, Robin Hood and The Fox & The Hound is (in my opinion) some of the better movies that I remember from my childhood 🙂

    I had understood that snow white WAS NOT a first animation movie. They simply claimed so to a reporter, who did not check their claim and published it as a fact.

    I love you guys, and I've been quietly lurking for months, but how can you do a movie about the Disney Renaissance, specifically (and rightly) call out the songs, and NOT MAKE ONE MENTION OF HOWARD ASHMAN??? Maybe it's just because I write plays so of course I'm going to gravitate toward the playwright, but Ashman to me WAS the Disney Renaissance. He did the lyrics for Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and roughly half of Aladdin's songs before dying from AIDS complications when he was only 40. And he wrote the lyrics to my favorite Oliver and Company song, Once Upon a Time in New York City. (And Little Shop of Horrors, which isn't Disney but is still pretty awesome.) You can hear a difference in the Aladdin songs he wrote vs. Tim Rice (no offense to Rice, who did Lion King's lyrics, which, despite my Howard Ashman nerdfest, is still my favorite Disney movie). I have never liked the post-Lion King-Renaissance as much, and I attribute a lot of that to the songs losing some of the magic (though Mulan and Tarzan have some great ones). Anyway. I will return to lurking. But SIRIUSLY. Howard Ashman. Legend.

    This is actually a really cool video. And though I adore all of the movies from Disney's Dark Age (my personal favorite era) something happened in this video that I didn't expect. At 3:15, J says "I have a hard time believing you have heard of any of these." And he shows 5 obscure titles on screen, including Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, and Ichaod and Mister Toad.
    My grandmother was born in 1930 and my grandfather in 1923, and sadly they both passed away this summer. I used to watch these movies at their house. And the other day, when we were over there, I saw all 5 of them together on VHS. I actually have the whole collection now. Seeing them in this video here, being recognized and appreciated despite their obscurity means a lot to me, especially given what they truly mean.
    Animation at that time, by Walt Disney and Max Fleisher (another cartoonist I had a ton of movies from as a kid), was trying to bring joy to the world in a time that it really needed it. During the great depression. And to me, that's what finding these movies meant.
    I'm sorry for the long comment and if you made it to the end, thank you for reading! I hope your day's going great! Thank you SCB!!!
