TDC#223.5 Happy Halloween!

For this Halloween extra, we are playing for you from “The Story and Song From The Haunted Mansion” – from Wikipedia:

Disneyland Records released (it) as a record album in 1969. It featured the story of two teenagers, Mike and Karen, who get trapped inside the Haunted Mansion…. Some of the effects and ideas that were planned but never permanently made it into the attraction are mentioned here…..A second reissue was released on CD in 2009 for the Halloween season…

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!

TDCs #29 So Darn Thankful!


In addition to those some of those everyday, mundane things many of us are thankful for, like oh, I don’t know, stem cell research, friendship, reasonably good health, pets and a roof over our heads, the Cats are also thankful for REALLY important things like:

  • Let’s get small with Miracles from Molecules!
  • Family – from the Whatchamacallit to Cousin Betsy (and others whose names have been changed to protect the innocent), they remind us of from whence we come and show us that Disney truly is “a family problem”…
  • Cous Cous!
  • zkj you know who!
  • Michael Eisner
  • The auditory stylings of one Jeff W.
  • Theming!
  • MouseFest 2008!
  • Satchmo!

On a serious note, We hope this holiday holds some good times for you and yours.

PDA at Disney Parks? Would You, Could You?

Okay, this one’s not strictly a “lost” Those Darn Cats episode . . . this one’s got a slightly different backstory. Once upon a time, we were recording a segment, and went on a tangent (shockingly enough!), and it simply just couldn’t return to the land of the family friendly. Sadly, the recording cut off mid-conversation, so Lisa and I got talking about the same topic again, and this time didn’t even bother trying to stay on target.

Now, after y’all listen, we really want you to chime in here . . . what are the acceptable limits of affection at Disney Parks? Don’t be shy, people.
