Merry Weird-mas from Mousetalgia! On today's special holiday show, we welcome three - count 'em, three - Imagineers to the show to talk about Marvel's upcoming "Disney Kingdoms" line of comics, which will be based on Disney theme park attractions. The first title, Seekers of the Weird, is based on Rolly Crump's original designs for the never-realized Museum of the Weird attraction, and Imagineers Josh Shipley, Brian Crosby and Jim Clark join us to discuss the origin story behind the comic, and some of the opportunities and challenges the new storylines present as they take a deeper dive into the worlds of some of the Disney parks' storied attractions. Also, we present our annual theoretical gifts to the Disneyland Resort - will TDA take us up on any of our ideas? Plus, Santa brings us a sack of listener mail to dig through, and we talk budget trips to the parks, Fantasmic viewing, a Haunted Mansion moment - and more!
