In today’s episode, Tracey and Scott continue their year-long examination of the cartoon shorts of the Walt Disney Company with a look at Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is March’s Salute to Shorts segment. They’ll discuss the history of the character, review some of the shorts, look how Disney lost and then regained this classic character.
Tracey then stops by Belle’s Books to share her thoughts on the book Walt Before Mickey: Disney’s Early Years, 1919-1928 by Timothy S Susanin. It’s a book that we’ve been using as a reference for the Salute to Shorts segments in 2012.
Then our hosts will take a look at the troubled history of John Carter, Disney’s newest live action film in theaters now. They will cover the long and strange development history of this project, Disney’s current involvement and share their thoughts on this film.
All that, plus a listen to WWED and other surprises.
Welcome, to Disney, Indiana!
