The actual "Reluctant Dragon" short from the end has sometimes been re-released as its own standalone subject (it was released alone under the ''Walt Disney Mini Classics'' and ''Disney Favorite Stories'' [[Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo video lines]]) or packaged with another short, but the entire, unabridged film is available on the Walt Disney Treasures DVD ''Behind the Scenes at Walt Disney Studios'', and as a bonus feature on the Blu-Ray bundle of ''Disney/TheAdventuresOfIchabodAndMrToad'' and ''Disney/FunAndFancyFree''. The characters of the Dragon and Sir Giles would later make "blink and you'll miss 'em" cameos in the film ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''.

'''''The Reluctant Dragon''''' is a [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1941]] film by [[Creator/{{Disney}} Walt Disney Pictures]]. While much of the film was shot with live footage, the film takes a behind-the-scenes look at how Disney makes their cartoons, via a tour around their then-newly built Burbank studio, and several animated segments are graciously scattered throughout.

The plot of the film is centered on humorist Robert Benchley, whose wife hectors him into visiting the Disney studio to try to pitch an adaptation of the Kenneth Grahame book "The Reluctant Dragon". The film then shows him going through several parts of the studio, including the life drawing class, a live recording of WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck and Clara Cluck's voice actors (singing an Opera--''in character'', no less!), a sound stage working on a short centered on a proto-[[Disney/{{Dumbo}} Casey Jr.]], the camera department (where the film makes a jarring switch to full blown technicolor) where we get a look at the famous Multiplane Camera (as well as a cameo appearance by DonaldDuck), a trip through the ink-and-paint department (where we get a cameo of Disney/{{Bambi}}), the maquette department, a storyboard session (where we are presented the story of "Baby Weems", which is a very intriguing experiment in LimitedAnimation), an animators' room (with appearances by [[DisneysNineOldMen Ward Kimball]], [[UsefulNotes/NoteworthyDisneyStaff Fred Moore and Norm Ferguson]]) where we are presented an all-new WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} cartoon short ("How to Ride a Horse"), and finally a screening room, where Benchley meets Creator/WaltDisney himself and is treated to the presentation of an animated short based on... "The Reluctant Dragon"!
