Hi Bryan Here…..

Disney has been releasing volumes of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Cartoons with their ‘Have a Laugh’ series which gives you five vintage Mickey and friends cartoons.  You have the option to watch them in their original format or their remastered format which have different voice action and different music.  In addition to that, you will get 3 Blams which are very short animated clips that revolve around a subject and 1 “Re-Mick which is a cartoon synched up with some current pop song.

Disney’s ‘Have A Laugh’ Volume 3

For me, seeing these old cartoons I grew up with was a real treat.  I knew every sound and what was going to come next.  It was very nostalgic and brought in happy times when I was a kid.  I have no doubt that kids today will enjoy these cartoons like I did.

Per Disney:

Just when you thought it was safe to stop laughing yourself silly, Mickey and his friends are back with more sidesplitting Have A Laugh high jinks!

Set sail for the high seas of hilarity when Mickey, Goofy and Donald go a-whaling and wind up going overboard, literally! Bark with laughter as Pluto is dogged by a pesky gopher who’s making mincemeat of Minnie’s garden. Then, have a ball with Goofy as he hits the links and BLAM! his “relaxing” game of golf goes outrageously awry.

Fully restored and remastered, these amazing cartoons also feature a new “Re-MICKS,” a mash-up music video of crazy cartoon clips remixed to the hit song, “I Gotta Feeling” from the Black Eyed Peas. It’s a novel approach to uproarious classic comedy that’ll make you laugh out loud. Bursting at the seams with surprises, Have a Laugh Volume 3 will tickle your funny bone till it hurts!

Episodes include: ‘Mickey’s Delayed Date’, ‘The Whalers’, ‘Chef Donald’, ‘How To Play Baseball’, and ‘Pluto and the Gopher’.

I could not stand the re-mastered versions done differently.  It reminded me of how Lucas destroyed his own creation.  But luckily, unlike Lucas, they did include the originals on the DVD.  I liked that quite a bit.  This cartoons are classic and are genuinely funny and still hold up today.  The remastered versions look amazing, but the new audio is very distracting, at least for me.  And I think if younger kids watched the original versions, I’d bet they prefer those to the remastered versions. Still, highly recommended.
