Disney Treasures: Dr. Syn, Annette, Donald 4

posted by Nell Minow

The latest set of Disney Treasures really live up to the name with some extra-special treats from the Disney vaults.

Annette – 1957-1958 Season Everyone’s favorite Mousketeer was the 1950’s version of Miley Cyrus. The 1957-58 episodes featured here include all 20 episodes from her own TV series (“Annette”) and a new tribute to her career. The song she sang on the show, “How Will I know My Love,” was written by the Sherman brothers (who would later go on to write the songs for “Mary Poppins”). It became a hit and led to a successful recording career. Annette’s sweetness and unaffected charm is as winning as her talent.

The Chronological Donald, Vol. 4 completes the collection of Donald-ania and includes two Oscar-nominated shorts, “No Hunting” and “Rugged Bear” with Cinemascope cartoons on DVD in their original format for the first time. No one ever got madder better than Donald Duck and it is always a delight to see him bluster.

Dr. Syn: The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh is an exciting three-part miniseries starring Patrick McGoohan as priest by day/avenger by night, based on the novels by Russell Thorndike.

I am charmed by this recent and fast-spreading Hannukah tradition, the menorah parade.

Here’s one with firetrucks!

Bond Villain Watches

ErnstStavroBlofeld.jpgFor the man who has everything, or, I should say, for the man who WANTS everything, especially TWD (total world domination), Swatch has come out with a collection of watches inspired by James Bond Villains. From General Orlov to Dr. No, from Jaws to Rosa Kleb, Baron Samedi, and even this year’s Dominic Greene, the better you know the movie the better you will appreciate the watches’ meticulous and often witty detail. Look for the tiny paw print replacing one of the numbers on the Blofeld model and the handcuff-inspired detail on the Kleb watch and the playing card design of the Le Chiffre version. rosa klebb.jpg
