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.

TDC #22 – On the Front Lines

I’m not sure why I love this cartoon so much…I only know I do. Minnie and Pluto saving their bacon grease to help the war effort? Gotta love that, especially when you know Mickey’s out there on the front lines.

In this week’s Those Darn Cats, Jennifer discusses Walt Disney Treasures: On the Front Lines with Collateral Damage, a military history expert, who also happens to be her spouse. (The Wachamacallit chimes in now and then, of course!)

We also enjoy a random little moment of live park audio…and birthday wishes for our own dear Lisa! In fact, we kinda sorta gave her the week off, given that it’s her birthday and all….but not to worry, she’ll be back next week for sure.

Of course, it would be way more fun to wish her Happy BIrthday in person, back at the Crystal Palace with that fabulous CM Jack!

Memories, light the corners of my mind…..

And hey, you did catch that fabulous intro, right? Once again, by none other than our great friend Jeff W! Head on over to Lisa’s DisFriends page, and you can watch the even-more-fabulous Rebel Briefing Film Strip version! Continue reading
