==========Edit Notes====================================

Disk 2of2 (This completes the set)
Two-pass rip and re-encode to 1CD size from the full DVD original
Ripped 161 individual screenshots from .VOB file to reproduce
the Bonus Art Gallery.

Found a typo (mis-keyed) in all of Disk1's titles and folder
names (I copy & pasted "Teasures" instead of "Treasures", over and over).
Disk 2's names are corrected except for the main folder's title so that
it will download into the same folder.


Disk 2 opens with more Maltin who compliments Disney and his staff for being able to make complex scientific ideas
comprehendable for the average American, without talking down.


"Eyes in Outer Space" (June 1959) (26:38):
Released initially as a featurette to theaters, this show came to the "Disneyland" show three years later. The focus is on the weather. There is a portion devoted to water, and how it changes forms. Then, satellites and weather prediction are covered. The subject matter may not be the most exciting, which makes the abstract animation and unusual jazz music the highlights.

"Our Friend the Atom" (January 23, 1957) (51:54):
In his interesting introduction to the piece, Leonard Maltin recalls how he and his friends would breathe sighs of relief at the "Walt Disney Presents" opening titles during educational films in school. The special begins discussing Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, with full screen footage of the 1954 Disney film.Walt then comes on and tells how the subject of this is of great importance, so great that he reports on plans for an atomic exhibit at Disneyland.
Walt turns over to Dr. Heinz Haber, who opens with an animated story of a fisherman and a genie. The rest of the special relies on this analogy that atomic energy is like a genie that the fisherman (society) finally has power over. Haber proceeds to discuss how tools like a Geiger counter and a microscope allow us to explore things that are unnoticeable to the human eye.
Certain well-known theories, formulas and experiments are brought to life, such as E=mc² and a light beam passing through a gold sheet. To illustrate chain reactions in nuclear fission, a table filled with mousetraps represents the atoms and pingpong balls stand in for the new neutrons created from the split.Though the material may not greatly differ from a high school science class, Maltin's observation that these are the same people who made Snow White and Bambi is astute. Atomic science is a lot more fun the Disney way.

"EPCOT 67" (October 1966)(25:30):
In this promotional film from October 1966, Walt Disney explains his plans for Disney World in Florida. In his introduction to this feature, Maltin states that this is the first time it has been seen in its entirety by the general public. Disney speaks with excitement about EPCOT as "an experimental prototype community that will always be in a state of becoming." The film details transportation plans for EPCOT, calling for three levels of transportation, with a high-speed monorail and a WEDWAY People Mover at the highest level. Sadly, Walt Disney died just two months after this was filmed (December 15, 1966).


"The Optimistic Futurist" (18 May 2004) (24:36):
In "The Optimistic Futurist" (24:36), author Ray Bradbury speaks about Walt Disney, the man and his creations. Bradbury discusses Disney's optimism, his vision, and his achievements in television and parks.Bradbury recalls the first time he met Walt Disney, a story which will be familiar to those who have seen Walt: The Man Behind the Myth. Bradbury is a most engaging speaker, and this interview of his thoughts and memories is one of the highlights of the set.

"Marty Sklar, Walt, and EPCOT" (18 May 2004) (26:30):
In "Marty Sklar, Walt, and EPCOT" (26:30), Leonard Maltin interviews Marty Sklar, a longtime Disney employee and Vice President of Walt Disney Imagineering. Sklar discusses Walt as a visionary, plus "Tomorrowland" the program and the section at Disneyland. The focus is more on the latter, as Sklar's expertise seems to be more about the park.


Sherman Brothers perform "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" (1964) (4:05):
Richard and Robert Sherman, Disney's go-to songwriting team, perform the song with Walt Disney himself. Walt then speaks directly to the camera, addressing the recipients of this song, the General Electric Pavilion at the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair. It doesn't really pertain to this set, although it is relevant to the Tomorrowland section of Disneyland, as the theme of the Carousel of Progress attraction. Of course, any footage of Walt Disney himself has an interest value, even something like this.
