According to the great cartoon and animation blog, Cartoon Brew
, Disney, following in the footsteps of
Pixar, has plans to release all of its Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated shorts on the iTunes Music Store for portable
playability on iPods everywhere this summer. Evidently, this information was "leaked" while Amid and Jerry of Cartoon
Brew were hanging out with Roy Disney, Don Hahn, David Stainton, and Leonard Maltin at a preview screening of The
Little Match Girl
, another Disney short. Jerry notes, "Starting this summer, Disney will be making all its
Oscar-winning (and Oscar-nominated) shorts available on itunes - for Internet downloading to iPods and the like. Yes,
Der Fuehrer's Face will be available to carry around in your hand - along with The Three Little Pigs and Destino.
When it comes to media on the iPod, I'm of the opinion that the more animation, the better.
