Episode 60, ‘Renaissance kids’, Part II on Walt Disney Animation Studios

This week, Dave and Steve continue their journey through the feature films of Walt Disney Animation Studios. With proper microphones and a whole new batch of films to talk about, the dynamic duo start to work their way through the next set of Disney films, starting with Cinderella and ending with Oliver and Company.
