Walt Disney Treasures Wave 4 in December

Walt Disney Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of their fourth wave of titles in the Walt Disney Treasures series with three new, separate limited-series DVD sets that include more of Walt's greatest wonders. Available in time for the holidays on December 7 priced at $32.99 SRP each, these rare marvels of the Disney Studio are each fully restored, hosted by noted film historian Leonard Maltin and presented in pristine colour and sound.

Each of these amazing 2 disc DVD volumes comes in a collectible tin. These outstanding sets are chock-full of supplemental features such as rare archival material, still-frame production art galleries, and more.

The Mickey Mouse Club (Week One) showcases one of the most famous television programs in the world, a visionary show that would inspire audiences for decades to come.

Rediscover one of the most popular family shows on television – the Mickey Mouse Club! A visionary show that sparked a renaissance in children’s programming, the Mickey Mouse Club has never been a part of the Treasures Collection before. Here are the famous Mouseketeers, the mouse-ear hats, the music, the skits, and more. The DVD programs are presented as the show was, with Monday’s Fun With Music Day, Tuesday’s Guest Star Day, Wednesday’s Anything Can Happen Day, Thursday’s Circus Day and Friday’s Talent Round-Up Day. Bonus materials include a retrospective with film historian Leonard Maltin and the original Mousketeers; merchandising and publicity materials, and much more.

Mickey Mouse in Black and White (Volume Two) features Mickey’s incredibly entertaining black and white shorts from 1928 through 1935.

Before Walt’s classic animated feature films such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” before Walt’s revolutionary use of Technicolor, before the Wonderful World of Disney television show, before Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts, before almost everything that Walt would build into his world-famous entertainment studio, there was a feisty, fun-loving little character that captured the world’s heart – Mickey Mouse! Here are more of the fun, action-filled black and white shorts from Mickey’s early days. Bonus materials include a featurette on ‘Mickey’s Portrait Artist’ and Disney legend, John Hench; rare Mickey collectibles and artefacts, and much more.

The Complete Pluto (Volume One) collects many of the animated “Pluto” cartoon shorts into one hysterically funny collection.

Mickey’s best friend starred in his own very popular cartoon short subjects, made during the height of the Disney Studio’s first golden age of animation. Featuring fast-paced comedy and lush animation, Pluto’s shorts easily stand on par with those of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy. Here are many of Pluto’s most entertaining animated shorts from the 1930’s through the 1940’s. Bonus materials include “The Story of Dogs” featurette; Pluto character designs and production art, and much more.
