TDC#73: The Fest That Dare Not Speak Its Name!!

Those-Darn-Cats-LG-LogoThis week, we are joined by The Skurvy Monkeys AND The Disney Dudes to talk about, well, you know what we mean, we just can’t actually SAY it…. but we are all just sure that this December will bring plenty of good, clean fun and festing for all the fans of the Mouse – especially since it sounds like both Cats will be in the hizz-ouse! This rambling round table goes off topic AND off color, we are counting on the Monkeys of course to do what they will with the “uncensored” version…

So what IS going on this December? Well…

We are sure there are TONS more – what will YOU be doing in the parks?  Up for a meet up or three? In addition to stalking Matt Hochberg and joining in on the many planned and spontaneous get-togethers sure to develop, tentative TDC plans may include:

  • 12/10 Yehaa Bob Sing Along
  • 12/11 am Segway Tour
  • There must be a time for the THIRD annual Girl’s Ride Out!

We discuss Magic Meets, last year’s side trip to Hershey’s Chocolate World (the cows are Olympia, Gabby and Harmony – and thankfully NOT Crispy). Shockingly, we wander a bit off topic and discuss some favorite childhood treats!

crazy delicious!

We then hear a little “vintage” Disneyland audio, including what is listed as “Disneyland’s ‘Blast from the Past'” parade. This is what I found of corresponding name and date on youtube:

This video, clearly not the parade in its entirety, contains very little of the audio in the “official” recording we’ve included on this week’s show. The audio is intriguing as I am trying to imagine what characters are doing in some of these scenes. The video seems to show some of those characters I imagined on floats doing numbers running along before and after floats (note to DL parade developers: put the CHARACTERS on the floats, not the weird people dressed up like musical notes. hello??). Anyways, who knew there were Disney parades featuring the Three Stooges?

Also, The Disney Feud starts up this week – check out the Cats along with the Whatchamacallit and Mr. Matthew Hochberg next week! And you can find that Disney Dudes show here!

So, come on along now!

TDC#49 – Pintastic!

Welcome to show number 49! We are most fortunate to be joined by Pin Guy Extraordinaire John Rick of The Disney Pincast, Celebrations magazine and Central Jersey Pin Traders. We discuss Kim Possible pins, general pin trading topics and a mysterious little fellow named Bobby Pinback…..

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 #10 – Meeting Magic!

This week, we Cats talk a bit about MagicMeets, which we’ll both be attending for the first time, this coming weekend in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. The Wachamacallit reviews WALL-E (with mild spoilers), and then all three of us reminisce about the people we met during our trip to Walt Disney World last month for Star Wars Weekends (recorded live at Le Cellier).
