And, side note, Cat#2 came home with a few cool new pins after Tracefest (though her Rufus pin went 101 on Main street)…



TDC#47 An Incredible Simulation!

OK, people, here we go – We start off fast and furious with our own Isaac Strayes and the Tabbie Cats doing their own rendition of that fabulous, funky, defining a generation movie theme – “Cats! (Right On!)”, then we visit the Poetry Corner for a little beat inspired wackiness. Then the tangents begin to fly. Witness:
  • ednaEdna says:  “Dahlings, I think you are a bit confused on the whole 60’s/Mod/Nehru fashion happenings, dahlings! A Nehru jacket, my feline friends, involve  the collar. Beatles’ suits? NO COLLARS.” 
  • Chipmunks!!  
  • The Fish are Friends, Not Food Finding Nemo Meet – ahhhh the memories and the SHIIINNNNNEEYYYYYYY!!!! OOOOOHHHHHH!!  2008_12120383


TDC#45 (2.0) What Ride Best Describes YOU?

Cat #2 discovered a little audio glitch or two in this week’s episode after posting…. apologies to all – I’m reposting – consider reloading?
A Pirates Life for Me?
A Pirates Life for Me?

This week starts off with a BANG as the fabulous Jeff Wasowski

Desperately Seeking Figment?

Desperately Seeking Figment?

has treated the Cats to a little musical musing in the form of “Sweet Veterinarians” (apologies to Tim Curry – NOT Neil Diamond as I originally feared).

Then we’ve got more MegaMouseMeet Madness, as Lovely Sheila starts off this weeks round of questions with a whole bunch of MouseFesters! We also hear from Alice falling down down down the rabbit hole, and finish off with a song from Yehaa Bob himself!



And is Cat #2 the only one whose mind goes here when Jennifer mentions Francis the Ladybug?





Note to all – Mr. Bob Jackson was out for a bit to have back surgery and should be back (ha!) to work soon – check out his website for his schedule!

TDC #21- ToonFest 2008 featuring special guest host, Myra Katz

Lisa has returned from her ToonFest adventure last week and has tons of audio to share with you all – thankfully, Myra Katz, from the radio show “This American Walt” (published by Disney Podcast International) is on hand to open and close the show.

This episode is quite long, but honestly, there was a WEALTH of audio material gathered that we wanted to share. We think some of the pics below will clarify this weeks story….

 2008 09210005 2008 09210014 First, our intrepid group meets up to review the cataclysmic glory that is T-Rex – coming soon to Downtown Disney! We scored the “top secret” insider fact sheet shown here:



Next, our travelers meet for breakfast in Marceline and await the 10 o’clock parade!

Tour Guide Trace, Wayne!, Head Banger Doug and Andie (the girl) We visited the Disney Homestead, the Dreaming Tree and Walt's Barn, where Lisa marked some kitty territory... Later that afternoon, whilst enjoying brats and beer at the Knights of Columbus tent, Lisa interviews Jeff W. of Snowy Tundra Training, who has an excellent trip report about the Marceline experience on his blog, as well as a great video of the aforementioned 10 o'clock parade (and Lisa's arms flapping like a chicken)."Walt" and "Clem" at the Dreaming Tree

     That evening, our group was fortunate to attend the 2008 “Plantear” Tree Planting Ceremony at the Dreaming tree on the Disney Homestead Property. 


The Mistress of Ceremonies was Kaye Malin, who introduces artist Dale Varner, who dedicated his Disneyland Model to the Walt Disney Museum.

Next, you will hear remarks from Chris Taylor, a long time Marceline resident and Disney/Malin Family neighbor. And one of the Disney Ambassadors, Sarah Bishop (I hope I spelled that correctly) was on hand to dedicate “The Son of the Dreaming Tree”, a sapling grown with soil and water from the World!

This audio love letter to Marceline concludes with the group chowing down at the local mexican joint and finding out more about what inspired documentarians Andy N (the boy) and Sara, his fiancée, to start a project about Marceline.

Special thanks to the whole ToonFest group: Trace, Wayne, Doug, Andie (the girl), Heather (the hostess with the mostess – and a bitchin’ Tiki Room in the basement of her house!), Mike and Sherry, Jeff W. and Inez at the Museum and all the folks of Marceline for welcoming us – and even whipping up a few “Dusty Millers” sunday afternoon!
