Full Plot

In this update of Disney's masterpiece film mixture of animation and music, new interpretations of great works of music are presented. It begins with an abstract battle of light and darkness set to the music of Beethoveen's Fifth Symphony. Then we see the adventures of a Humpback Whale calf and his pod set to "The Pines of Rome." Next is the humourous story of several lives in 1930's New York City, scored with "Rhapsody in Blue." Following is a musical telling of the fairy tale, "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" set to Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2. Then a goofy Flamingo causes havoc in his flock with his yo-yo to the tune of the finale of "Carnival of the Animals." This is followed by the classic sequence from the original film, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" starring Mickey Mouse and followed by "Pomp and Circumstance" starring Donald Duck as a harried assistant to Noah on his Ark. Finally, we see the awesome tale of the life, death and renewal of a forest in a sequence featuring the composition, "The Firebird." Kenneth Chisholm Plot not found

Steve Martin: You know what's amazing is that many of these musicians are playing for the very first time. Thanks to Steve Martin's "Master Musician Home Study Course". More about that later. Steve Martin: So let me turn things over to the great Itzhak Perlman, who, I have just been informed, plays the violin. Well, so do I, big deal. Could I have my violin, please? Ahh, thank you. All right, boys, let's... [Bow slips from his hands] Oh! Oh, sorry. Could I have another stick thingy, please? Oh, and camera back on me. Camera back on me. Ca... Am I done? James Earl Jones: [introducing the Carnival of the Animals] Here the sensitive strains of impressionistic music combine with the subtle artistry of the animator to finally answer that age old question: What is man's relationship to nature? [is handed a note] James Earl Jones: Oh, sorry... That age old question: What would happen if you gave a yo-yo to a flock of flamingos? [turns to look off-camera] James Earl Jones: Who wrote this? Bette Middler: Hi. You may not know this, but over the years the Disney artists have cooked up dozens of ideas for new Fantasia segments. Some made it to the big screen this time, but others - lots of others - how can I put this politely?... didn't. Mickey Mouse: Mr. Levine! Okay, Mr. Levine, everybody's in place for the next number. James Levine: Thanks, Mickey. When... Mickey Mouse: But we can't find Donald. So you stay here and stall for time, and I'll be right back. [Exits] Mickey Mouse: [Offstage] Donald! Oh Donald! James Levine: When we hear Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance" we think of a graduation ceremony. Mickey Mouse: Donald, where are ya? James Levine: Actually, Elgar composed it for many kinds of solemn events. Mickey Mouse: Donald! James Levine: This march inspired the Disney artists to recreate the age old story... Mickey Mouse: Donald, are you hiding in... Daisy Duck: Aaaah! Mickey Mouse: Oh, sorry, Daisy! James Levine: ...of Noah's Ark, with one slight twist. Mickey Mouse: [Knocking on door] Oh, Donald Duck! Donald Duck: Who is it? [Mickey and Donald's shadows are projected against a panel; Donald is in the shower] Mickey Mouse: Donald, it's me, Mickey. You're on in 30 seconds, hurry. Donald Duck: What? You gotta be kidding! [Mumbles angrily as he leaves the tub] Mickey Mouse: [Peeking behind a wall] Psst! Okay, Jim. He's on his way. Go to the intro. James Levine: Ladies and gentlemen, "Pomp and Circumstance," starring Donald Duck. Angela Lansbury: Walt Disney described the art of animation as a voyage of discovery, into the realms of color, sound, and motion. The music from Igor Stravinsky's ballet "The Firebird" inspires such a voyage. And so we conclude this version of "Fantasia" with a mythical story of life, death, and renewal.

- The "Rhapsody in Blue" segment is drawn in the style of caricaturist 'Al Hirschfeld' (qv). Hirschfeld is famous for incorporating the name of his daughter 'Nina Hirschfeld West' (qv) into his drawings. There are three "Nina"s in this segment: one on the end of Duke's toothpaste tube, one in the fur collar of John's wife and one in her hair. She herself is caricatured mong the people rushing out of the Goldberg Hotel alongisde caricatures of Hirschfeld himself, sequence director 'Eric Goldberg (I)' (qv), his wife 'Susan Goldberg (I)' (qv), and producer 'Donald W. Ernst' (qv). The man running towards the camera with the coat in his arm is writer 'Brooks Atkinson' (qv), taken from a Hirschfeld illustration.

- Although never mentioned, the main characters of the "Rhapsody in Blue" segment all have names. The construction worker is named Duke. The man who needs a job is, appropriately, named Jobless Joe. The little girl is named Rachel, named and and modeled after 'Eric Goldberg (I)' (qv) and 'Susan Goldberg (I)' (qv)'s youngest daughter. ( Rachel's real-life sister Jenny was the model for a character in Rachel's scenes, the girl with blue hair that can perform all the actions that
