Lost classics
14 December 2003 | by adam4gSee all my reviews

I borrowed the DVD, and I had forgotten the old classics of Jonny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan and Casey Jones. They are fun old Disney cartoons from the 40's and 50's. I am glad that Disney released them on DVD so my children can enjoy to old cartoons and the new John Henry one.
