A Real Surprise
13 May 2009 | by djhastiSee all my reviews

Since viewing the Disney animated short "How to Hook Up Your Home Theater" at a screening of National Treasure 2, I have wanted to say THANKS to the Disney people who made this possible. Talk about a faithful return to their roots! Disney did a marvelous job of capturing the magic, the humor, the timing, and the same light-hearted feeling that the old shorts had. And yet it was up-to-date with the subject matter. I was taken back to my youthful memories of the classic Disney cartoons. Goofy is my favorite character, but we could use new exploits of Donald, Mickey and Pluto, even Uncle Scrooge. So my last comment is: Please make more!
