Walt Disney Treasure Chest


In those heady mid-40's days before DVD's and VCR's--heck, practically before video at all!--this was what the average person had to settle for if they wanted to watch a Disney film at home. Note though that these are 16mm filmSTRIPS, not actual movies. The 64 scenes referred to are simply individual frames! You'd sit in a dark room (or closet) and shine the image on the wall through the viewer. Now we sit in our living rooms and watch FANTASIA in stereo on our 88 inch plasma wallscreens. Things change!

I wish they still made toys like this! All we've got now is View Master...which is great, but it's a shadow of it's former self!
