Following a special bonus Study Group episode, film journalist Ben Travis and animation academic Sam Summers dive head-first into a whole new era of the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ output: the Package Features. First up, they tackle a double bill of 1942’s Saludos Amigos and 1944’s The Three Caballeros – getting caught up in the sumptuous sights and sounds of Latin America, meeting Jose Carioca, Disney’s coolest character yet, and having to reconcile with Donald Duck’s terrifying, explosive horniness. Next week’s films: Make Mine Music (not on Disney+, but available on DVD) / Fun And Fancy Free Disniversity is brought to you by Ben Travis (@benstravis) and Sam Summers (@samsummers0), with art by Olly Gibbs and music by Nafets.
