This week, we are talking about the Push debacle of the last week. He’s in! He’s out! While we don’t know what happened or whether it was nefarious or not, we do have fun talking about Push and his pals. Speaking of which, here’s a video Jennifer took of Wes Palm!
In celebration of Labor Day, we discuss our experiences with outstanding Cast Members, and talk about the importance of Cast Members both onstage and backstage.
Jennifer’s written about quite a few Cast Members in her Jentasmic! column at Studios Central:
In preparation for Trace’s trip to DL to attend the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room at the end of the month, we put together a few factoids and thoughts about the great was-once-gonna-be-a-restaurant feathered animatronic extravaganza!
Also, look out for this book of essays Jennifer mentioned: Disneyland and Culture: Essays on the Parks and Their Influence.
This week, we discuss Walt Disney’s love of railroad trains, and other forms of track-based public transit.
This episode was inspired by the book Walt and the Promise of Progress City, by Sam Gennawey. We’ve got an extra copy to give away! To enter the giveaway, go to our Facebook page and comment on the post announcing this episode; after one week, we’ll pick a name at random to win the book.
We also are joined in this podcast not only by Trace and Greg, but also by the loudest pug in the wilderness, Roxxy. She’s especially noticeable at about 21 minutes into the show. Let me tell you, people who are light sleepers should not have pugs in the house.
We have lots of things we hope and plan to do in 2013! We discuss them.
A couple related links:
- The ConnectiCon convention, where you can meet Jim Cummings, the voice of Darkwing Duck and many others
- That Guy with the Glasses, home of Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick, and many many other members of Team Awesome. They review Disney stuff here and there, but Jennifer’s personal favorite is the review of Baby Whatever.
The Watchamacallit joins us this week to discuss the Villains theme park that we wish Disney would build.
- Proof of the odd/even Star Trek movie rule
- Der Fuhrer’s Face (warning: extremely racist imagery)
- Animaniacs: Skippy cries about Bumbi, the Dearest Dear
Lisa’s been to Cars Land, and lived to tell the tale!
Special bonus: Listen for the confused, uncomfortable noise that Jennifer makes as she tries to hide her disgust that Cars Land made Lisa want to watch Cars. And don’t worry, Lisa’s not really gonna watch Cars.
Shout out to Jeff W. for recording this week’s intro!
