Have a Laugh - Volumes 3 & 4 Review

I am so excited to say that Mickey Mouse is a favorite in our house! I grew up on Disney. We watched Disney cartoons, went to see all the Disney movies as soon as they came out, visited Disney World every year. The whole family just adored Mickey and everything associated with him. So when my daughter started to show an interest in "Mouse" I just ran with it.

We really started her on Mickey's Clubhouse because it's very age appropriate. While it's definitely a show parents can watch with their kids and enjoy it, it is geared towards young children. So when I was given the opportunity to check out Have a Laugh - Volumes 3 & 4 I jumped at it. This could be a great way to introduce my daughter to some of the classic cartoons while still keeping her engaged and entertained.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment releases HAVE A LAUGH: Volumes 3 & 4 on DVD! Classic shorts featuring Mickey, Donald, Goofy & Pluto are fully restored and re-mastered! Both volumes also include brand new "Re-MICKS" features, which are comprised of modern musical hits under classic cartoon clips!

Volume 3 Synopsis:
Set sail for the high seas of hilarity when Mickey, Goofy and Donald go a-whaling and wind up going overboard – literally! Bark with laughter as Pluto is dogged by a pesky gopher who’s making mincemeat of Minnie’s garden. Then, have a ball with Goofy as he hits the links and – BLAM! – his “relaxing” game of golf goes outrageously awry.

Fully restored and remastered, these amazing cartoons also feature a new “Re- MICKS” – a mash-up music video of crazy cartoon clips remixed to the hit song, “I Gotta Feeling” from the Black Eyed Peas. It’s a novel approach to uproarious classic comedy that’ll make you laugh out loud. Bursting at the seams with surprises, Have a Laugh – Volume 3 will tickle your funny bone till it hurts!

Volume 4 Synopsis:
Have an outrageously g’day with Mickey and Pluto when their adventure Down Under goes way over the top, thanks to a wayward boomerang and a humongous ostrich. Kick up your heels with Donald as his fireside hula dance “heats up” hilariously. Then, ride a tide of laughs with Goofy as he tries to catch a wave and – BLAM! – gets clobbered by his surfboard.

Fully restored and re-mastered, these incredible cartoons also feature a new “Re- MICKS” – a mash-up music video of crazy cartoon clips remixed to the hit song “Play My Music” from Camp Rock. It’s a bold, new approach to classic comedy that’ll make your spirits soar. Overflowing with fun and surprises, Have a Laugh – Volume 4 will paste a permanent smile on your face!

These DVD's are a huge hit in my house! It's really something the entire family can enjoy together. My daughter also LOVED the Remick to "I Gotta Feeling" by Blac Eyed Peas. She was dancing up a storm and laughing at all the silly things the different characters were doing.

I love that these DVD's keep the classic shorts alive. It's a great way to kick back and laugh with your favorite Disney characters! Each DVD runs for approximately 65 minutes and retails for about $19.99.
