Disney’s Oscar-Winning Adventures in Music

Back in 1953, Walt Dis­ney Pro­duc­tions released two short and cut­ting-edge music edu­ca­tion films. The ini­tial film, Melody, was the first car­toon ever filmed in 3D. (Unfor­tu­nate­ly, cur­rent ver­sions only appear in 2D). Then came the sequel, Toot, Whis­tle, Plunk and Boom, which proved inno­v­a­tive in its own way. The short film, trac­ing the evo­lu­tion of the horn, flute, gui­tar and drum, was the first car­toon filmed and shown in widescreen Cin­e­maS­cope. It won the 1954 Acad­e­my Award for Best Short Sub­ject (Car­toons) and was lat­er vot­ed #29 of the 50 Great­est Car­toons of all time. Giv­en these creds, you will find Toot, Whis­tle, Plunk and Boom in our col­lec­tion 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Clas­sics, Indies, Noir, West­erns, Doc­u­men­taries & More.
