The Fox and the Hound (1981) — A return to childhood trauma!

3/15/2021
In the 1970s, Disney was expanding by hiring new animators like Tim Burton and John Lasseter and also alienating Don Bluth and a third of its junior animators. Nonetheless, it managed to make a beautiful film about how true friendship can survive anything but adversity. This episode's cover art was created by Wolfpupartz.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977) — A return to package films?

2/15/2021
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh has the unique honour of being the only package film released after the wartime era, being the last feature-length film that was personally worked on by Walt Disney, and it has the first work the studio completed without any input. It's hard to tell which of the stories here has more turmoil, the story of A.A. Milne and Christopher Robin or 1977's genre-sweeping changes. This episode's cover art was created by Heidi Perez.

Robin Hood (1973) — Tricky, sexy foxes

2/1/2021
Disney's Robin Hood was created as the ultimate show of reverence for Walt Disney. They incorporated ideas he'd held close since the 1930s to create the tricky, sexy fox that is Robin Hood. This movie drips with Gen X/Xennial nostalgia, promotes kindness and distribution of wealth, and also shows how poor people are treated in prison.

The Jungle Book (1967) — The final Walt Disney production

1/18/2021
On the heels of the abysmal failure of the Sword in the Stone, Walt Disney Productions decided to recreate the work of a culturally-appropriating Imperialist in the Jungle Book. The production of this family favourite was then interrupted by Walt Disney's death. The movie itself is true to its roots with messages of racism, segregation, and misogyny. What happy memories!
