Walt Disney's birthday special edition! This week, Mousetalgia welcomes director/producer Don Hahn back to the show to help us celebrate the 113th anniversary of Walt's birth. First, Hahn discusses "Christmas with Walt," his film about Walt Disney's personal holiday celebrations with his family and his studio, which is screening this month at the Walt Disney Family Museum. Next, Jeff discusses a 1942 article from Family Circle magazine about Walt Disney and the studio during the war years, which describes the struggles the studio went through to continue to provide quality entertainment despite great obstacles. Finally, we present Mousetalgia's annual Christmas gift idea roundtable, covering stocking stuffers, kids' gifts, the hard-to-shop-for Disney fan, and the ultimate dream gift. From Frozen Band-Aids to a night in a themed suite at the Disneyland Hotel, we cover many angles to Disney-themed holiday shopping. Plus, Elsa the Mall Queen, Disney lawn ornaments - and more!
