The Sword in the Stone (1963)

Camelot! Camelot! Camelot! … it’s only a model. Just like this is only a model of an animated feature. It’s kind of sad, really. But I’m getting ahead of myself. On second thought, let’s not go to Camelot. It is a silly place. Instead, we’ll go back in time to the very beginning and embark on a series of adventures and turn into fish, squirrels, a newt… I got better.

The Incredible Journey (1963)

Well, I feel like an idiot. A while back I got a comment promising a really good dog movie coming up in the near future. I had no idea what they were talking about and assumed it was Savage Sam because it was the only movie on the list I knew was about dogs. I know now that this was the film in question and I am a dumb. At least this one comes with a ringing endorsement! Maybe this journey really will be incredible!

Summer Magic (1963)

For the first time in a while, we’re back to Marcelline, Missouri! Well, kind of. It’s actually Beulah, Maine, but the feeling is the same. Will this return to a bygone era be more pleasant than the last one? Well, it can’t possibly be any worse.

Savage Sam (1963)

You can’t top pigs with pigs, but apparently you can top dogs with dogs. At least, you can if the author of the book says it’s okay. Why he decided to write sequel to Old Yeller when the main character and the heart of the story dies in the end is beyond me, but here we are. I think we can put that box of tissues away, though….

Miracle of the White Stallions (1963)

It’s crazy to think that an event that caused so much strife at the studio is far enough behind us to serve as a setting. Walt lost nearly all his animators and a huge chunk of money to World War II. Now it’s historical fiction. A lot changed in those twenty years, but it’s still wild to think of how far we’ve come. Horse movies aren’t usually my jam but hey, I was surprised last time we travelled to Austria.

Son of Flubber (1963)

Of all the characters on this blog that I would want to spend more time with, Ned Brainard is not high on the list. In fact, he might be at the bottom. But it’s not my choice, so let’s bounce on back in to Medfield College. Ugh.

In Search of the Castaways (1962)

More Verne? More Verne??? More Verne????? More Verne! More Verne! MORE. VERNE!!!!! … I’m really excited about this, can you tell? The last movie we watched based on a Jules Verne novel remains my favorite new-to-me film so far. Let’s see if this one holds up to its predecessor!

The Legend of Lobo (1962)

Walt. My man. Stop trying to make True Life Fantasies happen. They’re not going to happen. This movie seems to be compared to Nikki a lot more than I’m comfortable with, so I’m not going to lie, I’m terrified. My blood’s up already. Hopefully it’s just that the dog and the wolf kinda look similar. Hopefully. Please?

Almost Angels (1962)

I feel like I’m lost. This is a movie with no dog. No Tommy Kirk. No Fred Macmurray. Am I in the right spot in the timeline? If only an angel could come and guide me back! Am I just making bad jokes because I don’t know what to say about choir boys? You betcha.

Big Red (1962)

Dog movies on this blog have a history. Either they’re really good and rip out my heart or really bad and make me want to rip out the filmmaker’s hearts. Let’s see which camp this one falls into! One of the actors doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence.
