I especially miss Make Mine Music.
It should come as no surprise that my taste in music, like my taste in pretty much everything else, is rather old fashioned. I couldn’t tell you who today’s most popular recording artist are, but I’ll school you all day on jazz, swing, bluegrass, or folk. And when I look back and think about where this musical love started, I would have to say Disney’s Make Mine Music was a big part of it. It is a series of animated shorts, done in that classic hand drawn, distinctly Disney style, set to music by The Andrew Sisters and Benny Goodman and His Orchestra, as well as many other popular artist of their day.
This one was my favorite…
…but they were all wonderful!
I’m glad I could find these on YouTube, because that means they aren’t entirely lost to this next generation. The kids need culture, lest they all end up reality TV “stars.”
