    Well, as much as I love the "Walt Disney Treasures" line and this particular DVD, there's no denying that guys at Disney screwed it here, at least concerning the booklet.

    The list for "Fables and Fairy Tales" on Disc I has several cartoons that can only be viewed from the "Leonard's Picks" section, while the list for that have several cartoons that are really located on Disc 2. In fact, it gets so convoluted that I'm afraid there was some last hour rush screwing the menus too, since it seems to me that Disc I itself should have an additional menu page for "Fables and Fairy Tales".

    But that's no big deal, really, compared to the REAL screw-up here: there are two missing cartoons, listed on the booklet but absent from the discs. They are "Practical Pig", listed under "Favorite Characters" on the booklet, and "Farmyard Symphony", listed under "Accent on Music".

    All of the easter eggs I have managed to find are just Walt Disney on-camera introductions to selected cartoons, but no additional cartoons, so I'm afraid those two are really missing.

    Am I the first to notice? Has Disney ever given an explanation for this?

    Whoops!

    It seems I managed to make a fool of myself here (again), at least in regards to the not-so-missing cartoons:

    Thanks a lot for that thorough checklist, Lars!

    As for the indicia, taking the "Skeleton Dance" for example

    16S01 290510The Skeleton Dance

    I guess

    S01 is for chronological order in the complete "Silly Symphonies" production
    and
    290510 would be the release date, 10th of May, 1929

    Am I right?

    These are great sets, but the menu design and hiding all this stuff is really infuriating! The link to the PDF replacement booklet is essential.
