This week, Team Mousetalgia takes you with us to the recently-held Silicon Valley Comic Con, with a focus on the Disney-related aspects of this new pop culture convention including a conversation about the showroom, Stan Lee and his Marvel-ous contributions to the current Disney media empire, and a presence we haven't felt since... well, since the last time we were in a theater to see Star Wars. The writers for The Big Bang Theory also share some moments from their own galaxy far, far away. We also discuss the crowds, the atmosphere, and Kermit the Frog's elevator crush, Lea Thompson. Plus, Shawn Marshall of ParksandCons.com joins us to offer his top 10 tips for surviving conventions and having a successful con experience. Also - Disney's Gracey Manor Ghouls use some very familiar artwork; Select Brands shares their Disney product lineup; Magic Kingdom and Jungle Book apps reviewed; and the D23 Expo dates are announced for 2017.
