Two interesting short subjects made during the late years of TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation (or the beginning years of TheDarkAgeOfAnimation, depending on one's point of view), the ''Adventures In Music'' duology -- ''Melody'' and ''Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom'' -- are two popular 1953 shorts in the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts lineup. While they feature none of the standard Disney cast, they are noteworthy for three reasons:

Both shorts are well remembered for their catchy music and their striking layout and character design. However, Creator/WaltDisney himself disliked the animation of the shorts. Allegedly, they were both made by Creator/WardKimball while Disney himself was off in Europe. After Disney won an [[AcademyAward Oscar]] for ''Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom'', he went up to Kimball and told him, "No more of this UPA crap." (Note that Walt was suspicious of artsy people like the UPA, many of whose artists had been involved in a 1941 strike at his studio.)

Both shorts are included on the ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' DVD, as well as the ''Walt Disney Treasures: Disney Rarities'' DVD set. And of course, they had a second life providing shell material for the long-running ''Disney Sing-Along Songs'' videos.

# ''Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom'' was the very first cartoon short subject to take advantage of the then-new widescreen [[WidescreenShot CinemaScope]] process (Disney's first feature film to use it was ''LadyAndTheTramp'', however).
# Both have very stylized animation, obviously riding off the sharp, flat [[ColumbiaCartoons UPA]] fashion of the 1950s.
