Mousetalgia Episode 388: Canemaker on Wong and Bambi; Disneyland with toddlers

Team Mousetalgia discusses Bambi, one of Time Magazine’s “Top 25 Horror Films,” and we look at the life of Disney Legend Tyrus Wong. Join us and learn about Retta Scott’s animation for the film, take a brief look at the production of Bambi, and listen to our talk with Academy Award-winning animator and historian John Canemaker about Wong. We learn about Tyrus’s childhood and early influences, his education and interest in art history both European and Asian, and how his work was used during his short time at the Walt Disney Studios. Next, Mousetalgia helps a listener with a question about taking a three year old to Disneyland for a birthday. What can she do to make the trip extra special for her child? Also, since celebrity has taken over our political discourse, we wonder which Disney notables might make a good President. Plus – enjoying Disneyland with senior citizens; a listener reports on a Marty Sklar event – and more!
