Whats Leonard Maltin's role in the Disney Treasures line?

My sister asked me this question and I wasnt too sure on the answer. I had heard that hes one of the main people who are behind the releases and in charge of putting it all together; including chosing whats released and so on. My sister thought that all he did was the talking, intro, disclaimers and stuff.

So does anyone know what role Maltin plays when it comes to the releases of the Walt Disney Treasures?

He also designed the initial prototype for the bagless vacuum cleaner.

i remember reading or hearing that he was the one who convinced the head honchos at Disney to do the Walt Disney Treasures releases. if that's true, then i'm sure he's involved in what is released but probably not at the highest level.

Leonard shows up in the oddest of places at times.

"Well I'll be a teenage girl backstage at an Aerosmith concert! It's Leonard Maltin in my cafeteria!"
