This week, Team Mousetalgia welcomes Disney historian and author J.B. Kaufman back to the show to discuss the world’s favorite mouse, Mickey. We talk about Mickey’s early career, including behind-the-scenes tales about the making of his first films, Kay Kamen’s influence and the introduction of character marketing, Fred Moore’s contributions to the development of Mickey’s look, “early” Mickey vs. “peak” Mickey – and more! Then, Mousetalgia welcomes designer Autumn Hansen from Modsy back to the show to talk about Disney decor, and bringing Disney-inspired interiors into your own living space. Plus – it’s been 100 days since Disneyland closed, so Kristen helps us mourn and celebrate the eventual reopening.
