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 #165: Ub Iwerks

Ub Iwerks

If you like Mickey Mouse, this man deserves your appreciation.

We’re back from a two-week hiatus! This week, the Watchamacallit joins us for a discussion of Ub Iwerks, as a follow-on to his presentation on classic Disney animation at ConnectiCon 2011.

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).

Would the early Mickey Mouse be more comfortable in New Orleans’ French Quarter than Disneyland? Here’s a picture Jennifer snapped a couple weeks ago on Bourbon Street.
