Shame about the Outer space set, but better to wait so they do it right. This Treasures line is my favorite series on DVD.

Hopefully they will get back to doing TV series (Zorro, Card Syn) and the True Life Adventures.

I can't wait and I'll be pre-ordering them for sure. I have a hunch that Donald will be off shelves fast.

It's a shame that they're only releasing 3 of these per year.

All 3 are must-buys. Kind of disappointed that there's only 3, but it's enough to keep me busy a while. I wonder how many they'll make (150,000 each, I hope? At least for Donald?)
I'll be taking the day off work and getting to the Disney Store early that morning and come home to watch. That is, if the Disney Store promises to have them, like they did last year.

Unsure as to how many cartoons were made by Disney.
So will "The Chronological Donald" feature all the Donald Duck cartoons? Or would there have to be a Chronological Donald set 2?
Also, does anyone know whether there are any more Mickey Mouse black and white cartoons: I am assuming that the second Mickey Mouse in Color will complete all the color titles?

Donald was the most popular character for Disney and the most prolific. Don't hold me to it, but there's something like around maybe 400 shorts with him, maybe not all in a starting role though. And yes there are enough B&W Mickey shorts left over for another set, which is rumored to be next in line for December 2004 along with a second set of Silly Symphonies. And I believe that the second volume of color Mickeys will have collected them all.

EDIT: I've no idea where I got that 400 shorts figure, but according to http://www.teemings.....rs/donald.html, it's obviously less. Which is good, in a way.

EDIT 2: According to http://www.animatedb...ews.asp?TID=651, there will indeed be 4 sets out. And it looks official. Posted Image

I wish we knew what the cutoff was for the Donald set, but I bet it will be before 1952's Trick or Treat (Huey, Dewey & Louie get terrorized by Donald on Halloween and get payback with the help of Witch Hazel) which is my all-time favorite Disney cartoon.

David, the Donald set goes up to 1941's "Chef Donald". See my post above.

David, that Trick or Treat cartoon is already on DVD as an extra on Disney's Gold Collection release of The Black Cauldron.

there are around 120-130 mickey mouse shorts all told
the are around 145-150 donals shorts.

So if there are going to be a mere 36 shorts on the donald set we'll be waiting for three more sets in the chronological donald to complete all of his cartoons.


I can't wait to watch Mickey and the Seal on DVD Posted Image

I like War Time, or War Years as a better title for the war one. And I'd prefer that instead of Tomorrowland shorts we got the complete Man in Space programs.

Oh well I'll be buying ALL 3 or 4 no matter what

and I hope it's 4
this is my favorite dvd series since they've discontinued (in name at least) the vault Disney line.

Any word on whether Donald or The War Years will include the Donald Duck short, Der Fuhrer's Face?

I caught that edit after I posted. Looks like this is going to take a while with only one release per year.

Thanks for the tip... I may have to rent that film one of these days.

I just hope the Donald Duck short "The Autograph Hound" (1939) isn't edited like it has been for the last 15 years. Toward the end of the cartoon, there is a montage of movie stars that start screaming Donald Duck's name. Well, one of the stars was an old black actor (I wish I knew who it was) who says "Don-ald Duckkk" in a very slow, un-PC-like manner. I've only seen this short unedited once, and all later viewings now have an aburpt cut during this montage (right before the black actor comes on).

Hopefully, it will be unedited, with Leonard Marltin giving a disclaimer before the short, which was done on a few of the other Disney Treasures DVDs.

I'm sure Der Furher's Face will be on there, and The Autograph Hound will be uncut.

I should probably get around to making inserts for Wave 2 before Wave 3 rolls around Posted Image Great news on the releases, however!
