Johnny Tsunami's poster makes more sense when you know it's about a Hawaiian surfer who relocates to Vermont.

Disney Plus

Disney Plus kicked off the week by revealing the library of old movies and shows that'll be available on the streaming service. It all came in an epic Twitter thread, starting with 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and running through the whole lot chronologically. 

It's an impressive list, with bona fide classics like The Lion King, Toy Story and Mulan, but the real joy is being reminded of some long-forgotten oddities like Brink and Johnny Tsunami. Between these, terrible direct-to-video sequels like Return of Jafar and '90s Marvel cartoons like Spider-Man and X-Men, Disney Plus seems a whole lot like a $7-a-month passport to your childhood. 

If you're in the mood for Avenging, it'll include seven of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies at launch too.

The long list includes a whole lot of Star Wars with incredible CGI shows The Clone Wars and Rebels, as well as Empire of Dreams, an excellent 2004 documentary about the making of the original trilogy. It ended with The Mandalorian, the upcoming live action show.

In case that wasn't enough, Disney Plus later on Monday tweeted out a more than 3-hour long video with clips from all the shows and movies. 

"Oh, and if you have 3 hours to spare... check out this special look at #DisneyPlus," the company tweeted.

You can preorder the service now. It'll launch on Nov. 12.
