TDC #41: Steamboat Willie

So many vintage Mickey Mouse cartoons, so much to get worked up about! This week’s show begins Lisa and Jennifer discussing the sadistic side of Steamboat Willie, and concludes with Jennifer and The Watchamacallit musing about their experiences in London (the real one, not Epcot).
