Jab’s Disney Reviews: 101 Dalmations

ONE-HUNDRED AND ONE DALMATIANS (1961): Written by: Dodie Smith (novel), Bill Peet (solo) This one’s one of the most well-remembered “Middle Period” Disney movies (and the first to be set in the modern day, actually!), owing primarily to its singularly-memorable villain; one so legendary that she’s become completely iconic. Cruella de Vil is probably in the… Continue Reading →

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Sleeping Beauty

SLEEPING BEAUTY (1959): Written by: Charles Perrault, Erdman Penner, Joe Rinaldi, Winston Hibler, Bill Peet, Ted Sears, Ralph Wright & Milt Banta Sleeping Beauty. One of the crowning jewels of the pre-’90s Animated Canon, and for good reason. Oddly, I don’t think this one was released among the big stream of movies in the ’90s until later,… Continue Reading →

LADY AND THE TRAMP (1955): Written by: Ward Greene (original short story), Erdman Penner, Joe Rinaldi, Ralph Wright, Don DaGradi & Joe Grant A famous one, mainly for two iconic Disney scenes- the Bella Notte spaghetti kiss, and the We Are Siamese If You Please cats (who probably make every person from Thailand SUPER SUPER HAPPY that it’s not called… Continue Reading →

Barrie (original work), Ted Sears, Erdman Penner, Bill Peet, Winston Nibler, Joe Rinaldi, Milt Banta, Ralph Wright & Bill Cottrell Arguably one of Disney’s most famous movies, particularly for its era, and it’s funny because it’s one of the few that’s REALLY famous for non-Disney-related stuff as well (things like Hunchback and Tarzan were… Continue Reading →

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Cinderella

CINDERELLA (1950) Written By: Charles Perrault (original), Ken Anderson, Perce Pearce, Homer Brightman, Winston Hibler, BilL Peet, Erdman Penner, Harry Reeves, Joe Rinaldi, Ted Sears & Maurice Rapf So in 1950, after YEARS of being forced to make cheap-ass “Compilations Of Shorts” films, Walt Disney FINALLY had enough money in the Baby Boom Era to make… Continue Reading →

Jab’s Disney Reviews: Dumbo and Bambi

DUMBO (1941) Dumbo came on the heels of a couple of financial failures (Pinocchio & Fantasia), and so was one of the first Disney movies made “on the cheap”. However, this cheapness in animation allowed the directors to focus on acting rather than showing off fancy backgrounds, and so we got one of the more personable tales.
