Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
As promised, I am carrying on my Era’s Tag. This time round it is the Wartime or Package era. It was during this time that the majority of films released by Disney were made up of multiple stories.
So, here we are, the second part of my Disney Era’s Tag!
The movies that are included in the Wartime/Package era are: Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, Make Mine Music, Fun and Fancy Free, Melody Time and The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad.
1. Any unseen films?
I have not seen Saludos Amigos or The Three Caballeros. I have only seen the odd few sections of the rest of the films except Ichabod and Mr Toad.
2. What is your favourite film of the era?
The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad. I love Disney’s take on the Sleepy Hollow legend.
3. What is your least favourite film of the era?
I don’t really have one seeing as I have only seen bits and pieces of these films.
4. Who is your favourite main character?
I think I am going to say Willie the Operatic Whale, even though the story is so sad and made me cry when I was a child.
5. Who is your favourite villain?
The Giant from Mickey and the Beanstalk.
6. Who is your favourite sidekick?
Probably Cyril Proudbottom.
7. What is your favourite song?
Headless Horseman from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr Toad.
8. What do you consider to be the most underrated film of the era?
I personally think the whole era can be seen as pretty underrated what with there being no full length feature films released during this time. It’s all Disney shorts put into one ‘film’.
9. What is your favourite thing about this era?
Some of the shorts in this Era are really good and I loved them as a child; especially Ichabod and Mickey and the Beanstalk.
10. What did you least enjoy about this era?
That there aren’t any feature length animated classics to have come out of this era.
This era was also quite short with only six films being included, the next few era’s however will be a lot longer! I once again tag Lizi, Shawnee, Alyssa, Ellie, Lottie, Steph and Sam to show me their favourite aspects of the Wartime/Package Era!
