This week, Mousetalgia brings you our interview with Disney Legend Floyd Norman, recorded at Griffith Park inside of Walt Disney's Combine Car, one of the cars that composed the opening day Disneyland Railroad. But first, Kristen attends a D23 press event and reports back on upcoming D23 happenings, including the 2019 D23 Expo, the Walt Disney Studio tours, and other D23 member exclusives. Then, we speak with Floyd Norman who was hired to work at the Disney animation studio in 1956 and was quickly tapped by Walt Disney to join the story department. We talk with Floyd about Walt Disney, his time at the studio, and his time writing the syndicated Mickey Mouse cartoon strip. Plus - Disney songs for the school bus, and more.

Celebrate our Tencennial edition of Mousetalgia as we kick off year eleven by welcoming Nicholas and Richard Kraft to the show to speak with us about their upcoming "That's From Disneyland!" auction, which is on display through August 26 at the old Sports Authority store on Riverside Drive in Sherman Oaks. The father and son team talk about a lifetime of collecting Disneyland and other pop culture memorabilia, why they've decided to sell everything, and how a Mike Fink Keel Boat changed everything. We also take a look back at the past 10 years in Disneyland history, and talk about how the parks and the parks' visitors have changed over the past decade. Finally, we discuss the upcoming CHOC Walk in the Park, a listener reports on the Disney Dream, and a last reminder: come witness a live edition of our podcast in person at Walt's Barn in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, on Sunday, August 19 at 1 p.m. See you there!

It's a super Mouse Meet emporium this week as Team Mousetalgia brings you four fresh interviews, direct from the Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet near Seattle, Washington! First, we speak with Imagineering Executive Producer Jeffrey Shaver-Moskowitz, who led a team of Imagineers in creating Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure. Jeffrey tells us all about the process, challenges, and decisions that led to the recent unveiling of the new land celebrating all things Pixar. Then, we speak with Disney artist Kevin Kidney, who tells us the story of the creation of Disneyland's nighttime spectacular Fantasmic, a show that he helped develop. We also talk about the road that took Kevin and Jody from the jobs at Disneyland to jobs working for the Disney Catalog creating hundreds of incredible collectibles and works of Disney-related art for us all to purchase and enjoy. Then, we speak with Disney producer and author David Bossert, who talks to us about his latest book "Oswald the Lucky Rabbit: The Search for the Lost Disney Cartoons." We learn about Dave's search for the true history of the illusive Oswald, who has only recently rejoined the Disney family. Finally, we speak with author and historian Mindy Johnson about "Ink and Paint: The Women of Walt Disney's Animation," her recent book that tells the "herstory" of the Walt Disney Studios, and fills in the missing gaps between the men and their pencils and the finished films we all love on the screen. Plus - should James Gunn have been fired? Dave jumps on the Disney Emoji Blitz bandwagon, Kristen shares a recipe for Main Street's Fish Mousse recipe - and more.
