    No, it's available May 18th.

    Due to the limited run of 250,000, you may want to pre-order just in
    case there are any delays at B&M shops, etc.

    I've had these on pre-order since they were first offered last year. As
    of Febuary, they hadn't lost my order yet :)

    This is my most anticipated DVD of the year. I can't wait to look at all the
    old WWII era animation.

  7. I can't wait for people to get an eyeful of EDUCATION FOR DEATH: THE
    MAKING OF A NAZI, easily one of the most disturbing things ever churned
    out by Disney, this side of Disco Mickey.

    It's too bad they don't make stuff like this now. Political correctness has
    ruined a lot of stuff.

  10. As long as we're juxtaposing Mickey and Bugs, thought "Herr Meets Hare"
    handled the obligatory wartime "Lowbrow burlesque of Nazi Wagner
    obsession" gag a little more smoothly of the two--
    Walt's animators just didn't have it in 'em.

    peacetime)

  11. Yeah, it's too bad there isn't a devastating war raging across the
    Atlantic...oh, wait a minute.

    swac
    You didn't catch that EDUCATION FOR DEATH: THE MAKING OF AL QUAIDA episode
    of Rescue Rangers?

    Yup, war is devastating. Though like WW2, this is practically WW3 and it is
    necessary.
    I hope the beheading of American captives is shown on the news because there
    are some people that still dont "get it" and need a reality check to see why
    we are at war with Islamic fundamentalist and that they all need to be
    killed. What would your choice be if you were taken prisoner: Have a glow
    stick stuck up your ass while people laughed at you or have your head
    chopped off with a knife? Yet America is the bad guy in most of the world's
    view.

    Can we not stray offtopic into political flaming, please?...

    BTW: I'm curious, Stephen. What do you mean exactly by "disturbing"?
    I'm not sure I understand what your context is. Thanks.

  14. Well, the animated images of Nazi troops marching and the classroom scene
    where a bunch of Hitler Youth pinocchios (they have the same basic look
    and design as the "real boy" version of the little wooden head) yell out
    "The rabbit is weak! He must die!" certainly qualify as disturbing.

  15. No, but I caught that post-9/11 episode of "South Park"--
    Which had a point for a while, until it devolved into how many "Russian
    Rhapsody" references the guys could show off from memory.

    Yes. It's supposed to be disturbing though, because it was an anti-Nazi
    cartoon.

    Seems rather mild in comparision to the reality of the Nazis.

  18. Well of course, but because Disney has sat on these films for so long, and
    we're not inured to the images, they have just as much, if not more, power
    when viewed today.

  19. But not in comparison to, say, Bambi.

    swac
    Okay, Bambi's pretty intense at the end.

    OK. I understand you now. I wasn't sure whether or not you thought
    Disney was evil for making "Education for Death". I guess you didn't think
    that. That's cool. Yeah, it WAS lame for Disney to be so PC cowardly as to
    sit on this wartime stuff for so long. I'm really glad to see "Education for
    Death", "Der Fuhrer's Face" and the rest get some airtime.

    - Juan F. Lara ( "Chicken Little" is one of my favorite Disney shorts. Love
    the ending. :)
