Worth a comment on this because after being initially skeptical, I found the show had some merits. I'm not sure what order everything was in really - the usual nonsensical one I guess, but some intelligent talking heads and knowledgeable bods (yourself numbering one)were amongst the z listers commenting with WD getting due recognition also with some nice footage.One couldn't be too critical of the selection - no Dumbo, no Pinnochio - surely both better than the Pokemon Movie ???? No let's not go there. These things are always shamelessly anchored in the last few years but nice to see Toy Story getting some recognition and the Snowman with BS commentary - I could watch a programme on that.I did think though, that Briggs and Schultz produced masterpieces of animation to show life wasn't always pink and fluffy and we cartoon audiences happily pushed their message in favour of just seeing the cuteness. That must have hurt !
