    The Apartment

    ★★★

    (Catching Up on the Classics Series)

    "Why don't you grow up, Baxter? Be a mensch! You know what that means? ... I'm not sure ... A mensch - a human being! So you got off easy this time."

    (Walt Disney Animated Series)

    A definitive landmark in Disney's rich history, as they honored their past of telling fairy tales while continuing to take bold strides into a new era of animation.

    "As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?"

    A story that teaches us that no matter how monstrous we can become, it is always possible to change .... "No, it can't be; I'll just ignore.…
