REASON AND EMOTION (1943)
CLEANLINESS BRINGS HEALTH (1944)
"I'M NO FOOL... HAVING FUN" (1956)
THE CALARTS STORY (1964)
From 24700, the official blog for CalArts, this interesting historical gem from 1964 has been found in their video vaults. “The CalArts Story” was a short film (about 15 minutes) that was originally presented at the gala premiere of Mary Poppins. It’s long and drawn out—much like the live action short films produced by Disney during that time, but it’s a fascinating look at what Walt Disney had in mind for the future of the school.
WALT DISNEY'S EPCOT (1966)
In this promotional film from October 1966, Walt Disney explains his plans for Disney World in Florida. In his introduction to this feature, Maltin states that this is the first time it has been seen in its entirety by the general public. Disney speaks with excitement about EPCOT as "an experimental prototype community that will always be in a state of becoming." The film details transportaion plans for EPCOT, calling for three levels of transporation, with a high-speed monorail and a WEDWAY People Mover at the highest level. Sadly, Walt Disney died just two months after this was filmed.
STEPS TOWARDS MATURITY AND HEALTH (1968)
There is a focus on the need for physical, mental and social health to be fully developed in order for humans to function properly within society. The film is aimed at an adolescent audience who are independently confronting developments in these aspects of their well-being for the first time.
NOTE: Possibly the first and only time sexual reproduction is demonstrated in animation from the Disney studio!
THE SOCIAL SIDE OF HEALTH (1969)
This late 1960's produced film uses an equilateral triangle to demonstrate the need for social belonging. Within the superb animation lies a subtle form of propaganda that attempts to keep young adults in line with society as a whole. The film includes a hilarious pill popping scene, classic animated graphics and a dancing triangle.
THE "WHAT SHOULD I DO?" SERIES (1969-70)
When two boys play an unwelcome practical joke, they learn how easily it can get out of hand. Then they learn practical ways to apologize and to prevent a fight.
