The happiest blog on Earth
While putting together the first post for the Resources page of this blog (which should be pretty self-explanatory), I was looking through every Disney movie that has ever been made, and realized that old Disney animation studio really enjoyed taking the popular music of the time and creating animations to go along with it.
We see this partly in the original Fantasia (I say partly because that music wasn't the music of the times), and wholly in movies like Make Mine Music or Melody Time.
I think that these movies were a great way for Disney to practice its animation and learn how to improve. They are also treasure chests for music lovers who can watch the movies to learn about the contemporary music of the time.
