Pete and Wolfy

Here's a still from Disney's Peter and the Wolf from the package film Make Mine Music, 1946. Bland but likable. My interest in it is based purely out of nostalgia. The design of Peter is particularly generic, kind of a mix between Pinocchio and Wendy's brother in Peter Pan. And Grandpa is pretty much Stromboli with white hair. Incidentally, John K has been posting periodically about the Disney blandness. I suppose that is why it is on my mind. The hunters have a great design, though, and Sterling Holloway is always a pleasing narrator.

And here's a non-Disney version. Creepy, no? And this is a coloring book. Once again, some well-meaning adult passes out nightmare fuel.
