This week, Team Mousetalgia talks about some famous Disney dragons, both old and new, in an Emporium show. But first, Jeff visits the Walt Disney Family Museum to hear Muppeteer Dave Goelz speak about his career as the Great Gonzo and describe how he brings puppets to life. Next, special guest Rebecca Dimmick joins Mousetalgia to report on D23's recent event at the Walt Disney Studio celebrating the 75th anniversary of The Reluctant Dragon, the movie that introduced and demonstrated the process of Walt Disney's feature animation to the world. Rebecca describes the panels, the decorations, the events, and the transformation of the studio lot back to its earliest days in 1941. We also host a giveaway in honor of D23's latest Fanniversary celebration, and then it's an app check: Kristen reviews Dragon Spotting, Disney's app promoting the release of Pete's Dragon, and Disney Emoji Blast - two recent releases for mobile devices. Finally, Kristen offers an Empath's review of Pete's Dragon and explains why it should never have been made. Plus - now that the Rivers of America are under renovation, we offer Disney our unsolicited and, frankly, ridiculous advice for ways to plus the area.
