This week on the Mousetalgia podcast, we celebrate the 47th anniversary of the opening of Country Bear Jamboree in Bear Country at Disneyland. Disney voice actor Peter Renaday returns to the show to talk about how he became Henry, the host of Country Bear Jamboree, and we also veer off to reminisce a bit more about the passing of Ron Miller, Pete’s role in the Haunted Mansion, and some Country Bear trivia we bet you’ve never heard before. Then we go on to discuss a variety of Bear Country topics, including a look back at the Mineral King project; Disneyland’s marketing of the new land and bear show; and the variety of Country Bear shows that followed the original. Plus – Kristen talks about Disneyland’s attic, Jeff gets rosy, Becky discovers the Star War, and Dave discusses Emma Thompson vs. John Lasseter. Also – Mousetalgia announces a special private breakfast INSIDE THE TOMORROWLAND STARCADE just for listeners on March 23. Visit facebook.com/mousetalgia for details.
