There's also a short that was created by Disney exclusively for these clubs: a sing-along to "Minnie's Yoo Hoo" with Mickey Mouse, complete with a second verse.

DisneyTreasures02-goofy.jpg

This set provides a look at all of the cartoons involving the career of Goofy except for How to Ride a Horse (1941) (a segment from The Reluctant Dragon) (although the original theatrical poster is included in the Disc 2 gallery), El Gaucho Goofy (1943) (a segment from the package film Saludos Amigos), Freewayphobia #1 (1965), Goofy's Freeway Trouble (1965), Sport Goofy in Soccermania (TV special) (1987) and How to Hook Up Your Home Theater (2007) being made and released after the initial DVDs set came out.

The "Donald & Goofy" shorts Polar Trappers (1938), The Fox Hunt (1938), Billposters (1940), No Sail (1945), Frank Duck Brings 'em Back Alive (1946), and Crazy with the Heat (1947) are instead included on The Chronological Donald, Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3, respectively, because they have always been put under Donald Duck's filmography, not Goofy's.

In addition to the commentary provided by Leonard Maltin for some of the galleries on Disc 2, Goofy himself (voiced by Bill Farmer) provides some comments on others.

125,000 sets produced.

Behind the Scenes at the Walt Disney Studio

DisneyTreasures02-disneystudio.jpg

This set provides a history of the Walt Disney Studios and of animation from the days of the caveman to the present. Along with a tour of the studios, some Disney animators are introduced and the process of producing films at Disney is covered. Most of the contents are from Walt Disney anthology series.

125,000 sets produced.

Disc one

  • A Trip Through the Walt Disney Studios (1937): This short film, made by Disney at the request of then-distributor RKO Radio Pictures, explores the promotion of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It offers a look at the film as well as a behind-the-scenes visit to the Disney Studio for an introduction to the artists and animators and their process. This film first appeared in 2001 on the 2-disc Snow White Platinum Edition DVD set.
  • How Walt Disney Cartoons Are Made (1938): This promotional film, which also first appeared on the Snow White Platinum Edition DVD set in 2001, is a more family-friendly version of A Trip Through the Walt Disney Studios.
  • The Reluctant Dragon (1941): This film features actor and humorist Robert Benchley wandering through the new and improved Disney Studios in Burbank to try to find Walt, in hopes of selling him on the idea of making a film of Kenneth Grahame's book, The Reluctant Dragon. He explores an art class, dialogue and sound effects stages, the multiplane camera department, the paint department and, finally, the story and animation departments until finally he discovers Disney has already finished the cartoon version of the story.
  • Bonus Features
    • Leonard Maltin's Studio Tour: Maltin provides a history of the studio, from the days of the Alice Comedies to the present day.
    • Behind the Boards on Baby Weems: An interview with longtime Disney story man and artist Joe Grant. Maltin discusses how Grant got his start at the studio and the unusual story-reel format of the "Baby Weems" short seen in The Reluctant Dragon. Grant reveals that "Weems" and the "Dragon" shorts from the film were both originally considered for full-length theatrical releases, but ultimately didn't warrant the longer running time.
    • The Reluctant Dragon Gallery: Promotional black-and-white stills of the film and its actors.
    • Studio Gallery: Photos of the old Hyperion lot.

Disc two

  • The Story of the Animated Drawing: On this 1955 episode of the Disney anthology series, Walt serves as the delightful host as he discusses the history of animation from the days of the caveman to the days of some primitive mechanical animation contraptions in the 1800s that were used to experiment with the art form. Then it moves on to more advance types of animation experiments, such as in J. Stuart Blackton's Humorous Phases of Funny Faces, Winsor McCay's Gertie the Dinosaur and even a demonstration of how music was synchronized into cartoons in the early days of the cinema.
  • The Plausible Impossible: On this 1956 episode of the anthology series, Walt explains how his animators make the impossible seem realistic through various cartoons with Mickey and Donald. This episode also includes a pencil-test form of one scene from Snow White that was ultimately not used in the final film.
  • Tricks of our Trade: On this 1957 episode of the anthology series, Walt dwells on how animators study real life to create their illustrations. Examples are given from Fantasia on following a live ballerina to draw the animals' movements in Dance of the Hours, and copying actual bubbles to produce the boiling lava in The Rite of Spring. The groundbreaking multiplane camera is shown off, demonstrating how it is used to mimic real landscapes, since plain animated backgrounds seem to be too plain and create a false effect.
  • Bonus Features
    • Kem Weber Gallery: This gallery has architectural concept art for the Burbank lot.
    • Tour of the Disney Studio: This is a rare half-hour radio broadcast from Australia in 1946, in which studio personnel Homer Brightman, Harry Reeves, Eric Larson and Walt himself offer general information on the making of the animated films at the time.
