You’ll also hear a good deal of Alice music floating around in the background, as well as this fabulous Tom Lehrer number. And, of course, a very silly Nikki Minaj parody that’s been floating around in my head for about a year – it’s a bit rough but it seemed the perfect place to just drop it down. Enjoy!
So where else do you find Aliconian ideals or influence or wonder or nonsense on a great and grand scale….. Where does this, if at all, infiltrate your life? Anyone? Anyone?
Where are the Cats planning to be at any given moment? Find out here! We discuss a variety of meets we are looking forward to over the next 2 weeks! Further info on meets can be found at the following:
There’s also Pixelmania, probably some kind of Lou Mongello thingy, DIS people everywhere!!!!! And then there’s that Girl’s Ride Out, Sunday, 10am at the Haunted Mansion. Maybe we’ll see you there? Follow on twitter as well, to catch on the scene info! “ThoseDarnCats”!
****Garageband FAIL! Oh boy – How freaky is the editing on this show??? Levels, mixing and synching promise to improve quickly!!
Donald’s Birthday is being celebrated all over the place, even on Those Darn Cats! We begin with a little project we’ve been working on for a while – who says we’ve all had enough with all the Disney podcasts? Certainly not Cats 1 & 2! In our discussion segment, we are joined by the Whatchamacallit in discussing Donald’s 75th. In the podcast, you might also hear about:
Donald in Mathmagicland -you can find all of it on youtube if this sparks any memories – or look for it at the Disney Movie Club (DMC?)
He also offers a “cure” for earworms at the end of the show. If Mr. Collins’ suggestion do not help you, try this.
A special shout out here on the blog to listener Michelle who lives in the big northern mitten (that would be Michigan). She spotted the following treasure on sale and sent it into the Cats – he talks!!!!!!!!
And can you identify any of the (I counted) 16 song snippets in this show (I counted separated tunes as separate entities)? Lordy…. I hope I counted that right….. 😉
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!
yummy! yummy! yummy! yummy!
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?
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:
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!
Episode 43, We mean! Yes? Then read and listen on fellow Dizzies – and for FREE!!!!!!!
Yes, it’s Those Darn Cats episode #43, in which the Cats discuss their most treasured Disney tchotchkes, revisit the Mega Mouse Meet, listen to a musical number from Cat #2, and a little not quite politically correct vintage Jack Wagner having to do with Lisa’s fave Disneyana character…
note gnaw marks @5 o'clock
So, enjoy this week’s show, and let us know what YOUR prized Disneyana ephemera is? And a big thanks, as per usual, to Jeff W (stands for Wasowski), MMM attendees Theresa, Pam, Dennis and Amy, I mean Judy!
And did you doubt for a minute that Stitch travels a bit with Jennifer? Here’s some photographic evidence:
