    NEW ON DVD AND VHS

    "Dumbo (60th Anniversary Edition)" MPAA rating: G (General Audience) Our price: $22.49 | You save: $7.50
    ...available here.
    A Disney "classic" that actually is a classic, "Dumbo" should be part of your collection whether or not you have children. The storytelling was never as lean as in "Dumbo," the songs rarely as haunting (or just plain weird), the characters rarely so well defined. The film pits the "cold, cruel, heartless" world that can't accept abnormality against a plucky, and mute, hero.… Also on VHS

MPAA rating: PG (Parental Guidance Suggested) Our price: $26.99 | You save: $3.00
    ...available here.
    Leslie Nielsen tones down the bumbling for "Santa Who?" But wearing a belly like a bowl full of jelly does little to diminish his trademark dimwittedness, which is what gets the bells ringing on this Saint Nick flick. Peter Albright, a self-involved TV reporter, can't believe his luck when Santa, presumably the for-hire variety, sails into his windshield and gets amnesia.… Also on VHS

    "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" MPAA rating: G (General Audience) Our price: $19.99 | You save: $10.00
    ...available here. Disney figured out that it's not necessarily how many extras a DVD offers, it's how effortlessly the fan can view them.
