Disney's Sing Along Songs Collection
(April 27/07)

Although these three DVDs have little to offer viewers over a certain age, it does seem clear that the young ones will have a ball singing along with some of their favorite Disney tunes. Each disc offers up about a half hour's worth of songs (all of which are accompanied by bright, easy-to-read subtitles), and there are also sporadic instances of content-related factoids (ie in the case of Flik's Musical Adventure, we learn a few things about Ostriches).

The first disc, Flik's Musical Adventure, offers up a series of songs with an international feel - with Flik from A Bug's Life acting as a host of sorts. There are nine songs in total, including: Welcome to Harambe, On Safari, I Wanna Be Like You (from The Jungle Book), You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby, Walk the Dinosaur (this is an updated version of the 1988 hit by Was (Not Was) ), It's A Bug's World (which is essentially just a riff on It's A Small World), Asia (this takes the melody from Lady and the Tramp's Siamese Cat Song), He Lives In You, and Circle of Life (both of which will be familiar to fans of The Lion King).

Disc two, It's A Small World, places the emphasis on classic Disney tunes and generally acts as one long advertisement for California's Disneyland theme park. A bespectacled owl acts as host and offers up the following 12 ditties: Whistle While You Work, Step In Time, I'm Walkin' Right Down The Middle Of Main Street, U.S.A., Follow The Leader, The Great Outdoors, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Rumbly In My Tumbly, It's A Small World, Making Memories, Grim Grinning Ghosts, The Character Parade, and When You Wish Upon A Star.

The third and final disc, Party At Disneyland!, follows three inquisitive kids as they find themselves trapped within the walls of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion. Various Disney characters pop up and the following songs are utilized: It's Halloween, Five Little Pumpkins, Legend Of Sleepy Hollow, Chicken Lips And Lizard Hips, Grim Grinning Ghosts, Five Little Witches, Spooky Scary Skeletons, Casting My Spell, Trick Or Treat, and Monster Mash (which is, of course, an adaptation of Bobby "Boris" Pickett's '60s era smash hit).

 

About the DVDs: Buena Vista Home Entertainment presents each of these titles in their original full-frame format, while bonus features are non-existent (there are a whole lot of Disney "Sneak Peeks" included, however).
