old school Disney cartoon

Over at FaceBook, some people were discussing how their first exposure to classical music was through cartoons, and this oldie but goodie got shared. It was also my first introduction, though in my case I got a proper music education on top of the cartoons. Still, those early exposures are always among my favorites.

One of my first exposures was listening to "Peter and the Wolf" in music class and learning to identify the stringed instruments, oboe, etc. It's still a very nice memory.

Oh, I recall that one very well!

I also recall Fantasia, which was stunning! I had seen several excerpts from it on The Mickey Mouse Club when I was little, and then got a chance to see it in the movies when I was about 10 or so, and it was re-released.

I honestly can't recall a time when "The Sorceror's Apprentice" didn't make me think of Mickey Mouse! And the cute little pegasii and unicorns in "The Pastoral Symphony" probably inspired my love of unicorns. (Query: do you suppose they were the inspiration for the original My Little Pony?)

I enjoy classical music a lot--and most of that enjoyment can be credited to Disney!
