TDC #281: Stitch Based Entertainment

The first 33 seconds of that video are the best part of Leroy and Stitch. Trust us on this.

This week, we talk about the plethora of Stitch-Based Entertainment (SBE): Lilo and Stitch; Stitch! The Movie; Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch; and Leroy and Stitch. Jennifer watched them ALL in the first few days of 2014. This is a higher concentration of SBE than we can recommend.

TDC#256 Trace’s Tiki Adventure

UPDATE: I, Cat #2,  mislabeled this show and the following week’s show! This IS show #256 – NOT show #261. I have no idea where I pulled that number out of. No comments please. :)

This week, Trace talks about the highs and lows of his recent Disneyland trip that he took with Wayne. ALLEGEDLY. Then we are playing the first of three “Memory Room” talks given by Disney Legends Bob Gurr and Rolly Crump (the two other talks will be played for next weeks show).

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.

No Show This Week

So, it’s finally happened, the (sort of) un-anticipated bye. Cat #1 has been out of town and things are a bit hectic here in the Land of Which I Am Mayor, so, instead of releasing a show of me reading the phone book or an undesited presentation from the Disney Magic about making towel animals (I’ve no idea how it ends but Trace indicated it could be with him cursing some clueless wanna-be towel folding lady), we shall take the week off and rejoin you all Wednesday, March 6, 2013!

Thanks!

2012 in review/WordPress.com

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 9,300 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 16 years to get that many views.

TDC #226: Dragons and Food

This week’s show is practically like a news round-up, if we were a news show! We talk about the trying-to-go-viral marketing for Believe In Fantasy, and the new Mickey Check system for indicating which kids’ meals are healthier choices.
