TDC#275 The New Mickey Cartoons and @$*&! MDE

This week we talk the new Disney Mickey shorts, thanks to the suggestion of friend Grim Noir. Then we share our recent experiences with My Disney Experience. Hope to see some of you at the “F the (Old) Main Street Bakery (and the Coffee Mate Too)” meet on Saturday, December 7th at 2pm – first 5 get a coffee beverage from TDC and we’ve no idea what to do if you show up covered in tinfoil.

TDC #238: Brave vs. Wreck It Ralph

The Cats and WatchamaGreg at Reunion 2012

Waiting for the parking lot tram! So very magical!

The WatchamaGreg joins us for a discussion of Brave and Wreck It Ralph. Which deserved the Academy Award? Yes, we’re ridiculously Disney-centric and barely mention the other nominees, other than to say that more people really need to see The Pirates! Band of Misfits, an Aardman Animations tour-de-force.

We are ready for our close up, Mr. DeMille.....

We are ready for our close up, Mr. DeMille.....

 

Hooray for Hollywood! Of course, The Cats may be thinking of a different Sunset Boulevard then most of the folks tuning in Sunday night for the 81st Annual Oscar Awards….

We will be watching… and rooting for the sentimental favorite, WALL*E.

 

 

 

Sadly, The Cats must note that “Kung Fu Panda” not only has outearned Wall*E thus far, but took home 11 Annie Awards… Sheesh..

Ah yes, and here are just a few of the things The Cats discuss this week and/or Lisa CAN’T remember:

  • “..movie about nuns in Iraq…” = Persepolis (actually about a girl in Iran during the Islamic Revolution – in my defense, the basic drawings are rather “nun-like” but how likely is the phrase “Irani Nun?”)
  • Waltz with Bashir
  • Lloyd Dobler
  • The Duckster
