Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom: muziekeducatie Disneystyle

The first ever cartoon in CinemaScope. In this short subject (which mostly represents a departure from Disney’s traditional approach to animation), a stuffy owl teacher lectures his feathered flock on the origins of Western musical instruments. Starting with cavepeople, whose crude implements could only “toot, whistle, plunk and boom,” the owl explains how these beginnings led to the development of the four basic types of Western musical instruments: brass, woodwinds, strings, and percussion.”

Bron is het onvolprezen Open Culture, dat overigens ook weet te melden dat Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom in 1954 een Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons) kreeg. Daarnaast kwam het terecht op de 29e plaats in de 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time.
