Review: Mickey & Minnie 10 Classic Shorts Volume 1

Mickey & Minnie 10 Classic Shorts Volume 1 Mickey & Minnie 10 Classic Shorts Volume 1 is now available on Blu-ray, DVD and digitally.  This collection of classic Disney shorts is part of the ongoing Disney100 celebration this year.  The offering includes ten shorts with a new introduction by Mickey and Minnie to each.  These introductions are about 25-30 seconds in length during which the two mice reminisce about the adventure/event of the short that follows while a slide show with is played.    For more technical specifications on here is the initial press release on the offering.

Here are the ten shorts included on this offering:

  • Steamboat Willie (1928)
  • Brave Little Tailor (1938)
  • The Little Whirlwind (1941)
  • Mickey’s Delayed Date (1947)
  • On Ice (1935)
  • Hawaiian Holiday (1937)
  • Mouse Takes a Trip (1940)
  • Figaro and Frankie (1947)
  • Bath Day (1946)
  • Thru the Mirror (1936)

I enjoyed watching these shorts but I found this release to be a missed opportunity.   The short introductions are nice but I was really hoping for more.  Longer introductions, a set up/tie in to the 100th anniversary of the company, or some type of featurette.     I checked and as of today 8 of 10 of the shorts are available on Disney+, the two Figaro ones (Figaro and Frankie & Bath Day are not).

I also took a quick look at the MoviesAnywhere version and was really disappointed to find only a single play option. They did not have the option to jump to a particular short.

Mickey & Minnie 10 Classic Shorts Volume 1 is an entertaining collection of classic Disney shorts.  If you are looking for 80 minutes of Disney Animation fun this is a solid offering to add to your library. If you are looking for any type of bonus material or information on the shorts you will not find it here.
