"A collection of vintage Disney animation has been discovered in a warehouse at a Japanese university.

About 250 pieces, including animation from Disney's first colour short - 1932's Flowers and Trees - were found at Chiba University, near Tokyo.

Original sketches, celluloid and background pictures from films such as Sleeping Beauty, Bambi, Fantasia and Cinderella were also discovered. Disney spokeswoman Erika Nakajim said the company was "truly surprised". "

This is definately odd news. Sounds like someone wasn't doing their job since they "misplaced" so many works of art.
