More Silly Symphonies[edit]

DisneyTreasures06-sillysymphonies.jpg

This set contains all Silly Symphonies not released on the first volume in Wave One. Leonard Maltin mentions in the intro that the original title cards to most of these shorts are presumably lost, and therefore, new title cards had been recreated making a close approximation of how they originally looked. However, these title cards weren't used on the initial pressings of this set.[1] Also, the cartoon The Night Before Christmas was an edited version, missing footage of toys resembling Amos 'n Andy. Replacement discs were initially issued which corrected the errors on the original copies. From the Disney website, customers can call an 800 number to request replacement copies. Unlike the first volume, this was never released in a Region 2 format.

65,000 sets produced.

The Hardy Boys: The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure[edit]

DisneyTreasures06-hardyboys.jpg

This volume features the first of the two Hardy Boys serials that were shown on the Mickey Mouse Club.

65,000 sets produced.

In the late 1950s, Disney contracted with the Stratemeyer Syndicate and Grosset & Dunlap to produce two Hardy Boys TV serials, starring Tim Considine and Tommy Kirk.

The first of the serials, The Mystery of the Applegate Treasure, was aired on The Mickey Mouse Club in 1956 during the show's second season. To appeal to the show's audience, the Hardy Boys were portrayed as younger than in the books, seeming to be 11 or 12 years old. The script, written by Jackson Gillis, was based on the first Hardy Boys book, The Tower Treasure, and the serial was aired in 19 episodes of 15 minutes each with production costs of $5,700.

The main characters are Tim Considine as Frank Hardy and Tommy Kirk as Joe Hardy.
