This week, Mousetalgia is pleased to welcome author and historian Dave Bossert back to the show to discuss his latest book, “Claude Coats: Walt Disney’s Imagineer: The Making of Disneyland From Toad Hall to the Haunted Mansion and Beyond.” Dave is joined on the show by retired Imagineer Alan Coats, who happens to be Claude’s son and also contributed to the book. The two talk about Claude’s impact on Disneyland by discussing his early career in animation, his contributions to the development of atmosphere for the many projects he worked on, and his ongoing legacy. Plus – inexpensive artwork from the production of Sleeping Beauty, Disney dad jokes, XBox and Disney+ – and more.
