Mousetalgia Episode 397: The Art of Pinocchio, Walt Disney on WWII

Mousetalgia reports on “Wish Upon a Star: The Art of Pinocchio,” the latest special exhibition at the Walt Disney Family Museum. First, Jeff reports on a talk by animation historian John Canemaker in a presentation focusing on an analysis of two of Pinocchio’s lead animators: Bill Tytla and Milt Kahl. Then, we have a review of the exhibition, and we discuss historian Robin Allan’s take on the Blue Fairy. Plus, in honor of Memorial Day, we play a wartime radio speech Walt Disney gave explaining the studio’s role in the war effort in July of 1943 on “The March of Time.” Also – a listener shares super tips for having a successful Disneyland honeymoon, Jeff gives you a chance to get a little whistle, Mousetalgia “Inner Space” t-shirts are now on sale, Kristen tries Oculus Rift, and we talk about Muppet pizza, Disney LEGO Minifigs, Disneyland MyMagic+ plans, and more.
