Melody Time – A Visual Treat.

It doesn’t get much more colourful or original than this highly entertaining collection of specially selected animated super treats. Special favourites like ‘The Legend of Johnny Appleseed’ with its magnificent storytelling, musical interludes, and challenging themes of opening up new horizons. It even includes a sequence featuring that crazy trio from the amazing “The Three Caballeros” who mingle with live-action musicians, including Ethel Smith playing an organ in a giant fishbowl! The exciting Bumble Boogie, the beautiful homage to ‘Trees’, ‘The Story of Little Toot’ and more, all wrapped up in a Disney animated spectacular. Can’t go wrong with this package.
