Make Mine Music (1946)

In Disney's eighth animated feature - an unofficial, less "artsy" follow-up to Fantasia (1940) - containing two of the classic animated segments (out of ten total original segments)

  • the comic retelling of "Casey at the Bat" from the classic 1888 Ernest Thayer tale of an arrogant ballplayer; it ended with the verses, as Casey was at bat with two strikes against him without ever swinging: ("The sneer is gone from Casey's lip, his teeth are clenched in hate; he pounds with cruel violence, his bat upon the plate. And now the pitcher holds the ball, and now he lets it go, and now the air is shattered by the force of Casey's blow. (song) Somewhere in this favored land, the sun is shining bright; somewhere bands are playing sweetly, and somewhere hearts are light, somewhere men are laughing, somewhere children shout; but there is no joy in Mudville - mighty Casey has struck out")
  • the 15-minute Disney version of "Peter and the Wolf" based on Sergei Prokofiev's famous symphony of the same name with each character represented by a particular musical instrument, and narrated by scratchy-voiced Sterling Holloway
