Walt Disney's inspirations for Snow White were the focus of a recent panel discussion at the Walt Disney Family Museum, and Mousetalgia brings you a special report. Led by historian J.B. Kaufman and exhibition curator Lella Smith, this event featured discussion about the fairy tales, plays, and film that most directly influenced Walt Disney in the creation of his first animated feature. Also, Mousetalgia talks Disney shopping for the holidays, and we look at some of the lesser-traveled roads to finding the perfect gift. We also talk about Barney's Electric Holiday, and try to get past the hype. Plus - Jeff Kurtti on the art of Disneyland, Tony Baxter's gold, Donkey gets mauled - and more!
