[edit]

Synopsis: Consists of new narration by James Earl Jones, which is interspersed with the Disney shorts John Henry (2000), Johnny Appleseed (1948), Paul Bunyan (1958), and The Brave Engineer (1950).


Reaction: Well done and fun. I grew up with these (except John Henry which was added later) and I've loved them my whole life.


Personal Rating: 8/10
