Episode 250: Melody Time
Hey, folks! It's a banner day here at Mousterpiece Cinema HQ, as Gabe and Josh are celebrating their 250th episode today. And there's no better film to discuss than the 1948 package film Melody Time, featuring Donald Duck, Roy Rogers, the Andrews Sisters, and more. Don't take that as sarcasm, either: this really is an ideal movie to discuss for such a notable milestone episode, because it gives Josh and Gabe time once again to talk about the "Open the Disney Vault" hashtag and why a movie like Melody Time is unjustly ignored by the higher-ups at Disney. But whether or not it's ignored, is Melody Time an underrated package film? Is it #problematic? Could it be both? Check out the new show to find out!
