In this episode, Tracey and Scott continue their 2012 Salute to Shorts monthly series with a discussion of the Disney Studios first sound cartoon, and Mickey Mouse’s official debut: Steamboat Willie from 1928. They trace the history of this significant short and share their thoughts on the film.
Then, after listening to WWED’s warm up act, our hosts celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Disney Parks nighttime spectacular Fantasmic with a live recording of the show from their February 2011 visit to Walt Disney World.
They then wrap up the show with a call to the Main Street Cinema and some listener feedback.
Welcome to Disney, Indiana!
