The fifth wave of Walt Disney Treasures was released on December 6, 2005. Starting with this wave the DVD cases are now single opening, but the same size as the previous.

The Chronological Donald, Volume Two


This set covers the second leg of Donald Duck's long career, starting from 1942 to 1946, covering World War II in the process. The Japanese, French, Italian and German releases of this set only contains 29 of the 32 shorts available on the American release. The shorts left off were Commando Duck, Der Fuehrer's Face and Donald's Crime. The omission of the first two shorts was most likely due to World War II propaganda against both nations as they were both enemy nations to the United States during the war, but the omission of the last one probably more due to mistake, as all versions of The Great Mouse Detective DVD include it. The Chronological Donald, Volume Two did not receive the beautiful restoration of Volume One. Prints are worn and the image quality is visibly worse than all earlier Disney Treasures Volumes.

125,000 sets produced.

Disc One

Disc Two

  • Bonus Features
    • Drawing and Talking 'Duck' with Tony Anselmo: Maltin meets with Tony Anselmo, who is the present voice of Donald and has been so since the mid-1980s. He reveals how he emerged as the man behind the duck and his respect and loyalty to the Disney name.
    • The Art and Animation of Carl Barks: Carl Barks, although he started out as a storyman for some of Donald's earliest shorts, is best known for the Donald Duck comics. Various relevant individuals give their thought on the man and his work and emphasize his influence on DuckTales (a clip from the episode "The Time Teasers" can be seen during the special) and such blockbusters as Raiders of the Lost Ark.
    • The Volunteer Worker: An additional short dating from 1940. In this cartoon, Donald goes from door to door trying to collect money for charity, but to no avail when every door he visits slams in his face. His frustrations lead him to the personal testimony of a man he meets on the street who had once benefited from charities himself. Unlike the first Donald set, which featured the cartoon as an Easter egg, this cartoon is displayed in full view on this set.
    • Timeline: The War Years, 1941–1945: This segment shows off a variety of things that had come out of Disney during these years, using clips and captions in the style of a newsreel.
    • Galleries: These galleries cover assortments of concept art, storyboard sketches and background paintings from the various Donald shorts on this set.

Disney Rarities: Celebrated Shorts: 1920s–1960s


This set covers many miscellaneous cartoons to come out of the studio that do not feature the usual stable of Disney stars and do not even fit in Silly Symphonies or did not feature the Silly Symphonies title card. This set also includes a few select episodes from the Alice Comedies, which were made in the 1920s, long before Mickey Mouse ever came on the scene.

125,000 sets produced.

Disc One

  • Bonus Features
    • Alice's Cartoon World: An Interview with Virginia Davis: Here, Maltin interviews Virginia Davis, the lady who portrayed the little girl, Alice, in Walt's silent comedies beginning more than 80 years ago.
    • From Kansas City to Hollywood: A Timeline of Disney's Silent Era: A featurette talking about Walt Disney's journey into the entertainment industry, from an ad company in Kansas City right up to the discovery of synchronized sound.

Disc Two

  • Bonus Features
    • Audio Commentary: This is the very first audio commentary heard in the Treasures series, heard over A Symposium On Popular Songs. Maltin interviews Richard M. Sherman on that short. Richard, along with his brother Robert, wrote the music songs for that short (as well, they both wrote songs for dozens of Disney films and theme park attractions in the 1960s–2000s).
    • A Feather in His Collar (1946): Pluto demonstrates donating to his local community chest.
    • Galleries: These galleries cover assortments of concept art, storyboard sketches and background paintings from a handful of the cartoons presented this DVD set.
