Can’t play the YouTube link in Canada, guess I’ll just have to watch “Escape from Tomorrow” instead

I love these new shorts. Took me a short time to realize that they were tributes to the (comically grotesque) 30s-style shorts and then I was fully on board. There are some great eastereggs for Disney nerds in these.

Not available outside of the USA, sloppy posting.

http://proxyusa.org/ or similar.
video url is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xRCYmbvfEs

when do they learn that restricting content to countries doesn’t work?


#6

I have to wonder if these aren’t a ploy to extend the copyright on the older “Steamboat Willie” style of Mickey?


#7

I’m Canadian, therefor this doesn’t actually exist.


#8

Between this and making Mulan bisexual last week, Disney’s getting pretty hip.


#9

I find these new shorts to be a lot more inspired by Ren & Stimpy, rather than classic Walt Disney.

"The uploader has not made this video available in your country. "

Thanks for nothing, DisneyShorts!

Smart, fun, inventive, stylized as hell and they even squeezed in the Goofy’s ‘Wilhelm-scream’ audio bite.

Why OH WHY aren’t they putting the creative reins into the hands of people like this, instead of giving us Cars-tie-in garbage like “Planes”?

I don’t know. I love the silent clown comedy, which is definitely lacking in the current mainstream animation landscape (although Simon’s Cat is pretty great…) but I found the animation itself to be jarringly cheap. The super-clean vector-y lines on the character were stiff, and the floating flash-tweened shapes made it look like Homestar Runner, but in a bad way. The environments were beautiful, but the character animation just didn’t match in a way to make is all hang together. There were some good gags, but again, the character art style just didn’t feel up to the task.
