Samadhi #

Released 12/31/1967

Description: Samadhi is both mystical and mysterious, an wonderful fusion of movement, sound and colour. Belson notes the influence of his study and practice of Yoga and Tibetan Buddhism on the creation of Samadhi. The movie is inspired by the principles of yogic meditation: the movement of consciousness towards samadhi (union of topics and object), the fusion of atma (breath and mind), a state which reveals the divine force of kundalini, a bright white light we explore at the end of Samadhi. The Tibetan Ebook of The Dead is the inspiration behind Belson’s test of colour in Samadhi, corresponding to descriptions of the elements of Earth, Fire, Air and Water in the book. —Sophie Pinchetti, The Third Eye

Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom Reviews:

In the late 1940s and early 1950s Walt Disney began to expand his studio's work from entertainment to teaching. In this zone he is greatest recalled for his unbelievable short nature movies about topics like deserts and animals. But he also, occasionally turned to the test of his cartoons to receive his message across. TOOT, WHISTLE, PLUNK, and BOOM was one of his greatest examples of this (in fact, it was recognized for it's special excellence by copping the greatest short movie - cartoon Oscar in 1953). Disney used this cartoon to trace the development of musical instruments from the dawn of human history to the show (1953). Since the topics is melody similar all of the dialog is sung or spoke - sung. The setting is a classroom for young animals, and the teacher (who rushes into class late at the start) is an owl. He begins by showing four cavemen figures: one is tooting a metal horn, one is testing with a wind instrument whistle, one is plucking his bow (from his bow and arrow) and one is beating time with his belly as a drum (the boom sound). We then watch every of these instruments grow up so to speak: the horn is brought to the attention of the Pharoah of Egypt who convinces the caveman to change it to a longer trumpet. Eventually the modern trumpet is developed when musicians learn that they can twist the size of the trumpet to be carried . We also receive a view of the development of clarinets, harps and string instruments, and drums. There are some funny moments in the film, such as the birth of social dancing at the court of Pharoah, and the issues of strings for harp and violin players. But for all the changes and developments of the modern musical instruments, the instruments basics are never changed - a mission that Disney's artists receive across when they hold bringing the four original cavemen into melody in another ages up to the present.


If you think that Disney animators were only nice at drawing cutesy animals in the 1950's then you need to see this film. The animation style is like nothing you've ever seen in a Disney film. While it does have its share of pretty animals (the setting is a classroom full of birds), many of the characters are strange, geometric looking creations. I especially enjoyed the ancient Egyptian characters modeled after ancient Egyptian art. This is an educational short on the origins of music, but also works as a nice comedy. The "Plunk" section is the best! It's a one joke bit, but it never gets old.


The greatest thing about "Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom" is that I now learned something from it! Who knew I would learn something from a cartoon at the age of 22?! I've never been that involved in musical instruments, but it was very interesting and simple to learn from TWP&B on why horns are shaped the method they are. The short is also hilarious as we see how the caveman learned to create melody in their primitive methods and how that melody evolved over the ages. It's also fun to see the cavemen collaborate with the modern-day symphonies. There are just some nice gags and jokes throughout this jam-packed cartoon.We're also reintroduced to that school of singing birds from the cartoon short, "Melody." They were fun, but I thought they were a tiny annoying in this short. I was glad when they made the transition to the cavemen, because those cavemen stole the show! I've even seen them create cameos on the newest cartoon series, "Disney's House of Mouse." Hey, maybe we can even see them in the theme parks!!! That would be fun!There are a lot of memorable and educational moments from this cartoon, and it will everytime remain a classic. In my opinion, the only thing holding it back a tiny are those birds. They've done better! Better just allow the cavemen receive the present going!!My IMDb Rating: 9/10
