Disney and String Lovers Rejoice for One of a Kind Instruments

In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Disney Magic Music Days, five one-of-a-kind basses will be auctioned off to benefit the Grammy Foundation with proceeds then flowing through to various school music programs around the U.S.

Basses

These unique masterpieces were hand painted by some of the most talented Disney artists around.  The collection was officially put on display last week at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles and each piece will make a separate tour across the U.S. at various art and music museums before being auctioned off on June 26, 2010.

The five basses represent Alice in Wonderland’s Cheshire Cat, Aladdin’s Genie, The Princess and the Frog, the soon-to-be released Rapunzel, and Dumbo.

List of Disney’s Full Length Animated Feature Films with One Word Titles

Producing a full length animated feature is no small task. And at some point in time that feature has to be christened with a title.  I wonder what the process is like for the Imagineers who come up with catchy Disney movie titles that stick? Disney has cranked out so many masterpieces, that I thought it would be fun to try and come up with a list of all of the Disney full-length animated feature films with one word titles.  We came up with eighteen.  Think you can name them all???  Buff up on your Disney Trivia and see how many of these you remember.

A special thanks goes out to my Twitter friend @DisneyandBeyond for getting that left-brain working and helping me compile this list for all of you. By the way…we excluded films with “The” in the title, like The Aristocats and The Rescuers as well as live-action/animation films such as Enchanted.  I am also omitting 2001’s Atlantis as the official full title is Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

1.  Pinocchio (1940)

If we’ve left one out, please give us a nudge.  Out of all of the films listed above I would have to say that although Rhino cracks me UP….”UP” would have to be my own personal favorite.  Which one is yours?  Please let me know in the comment section below and thanks for taking the time to visit DisneyEveryDay.com
