Re: Disney's The Little Mermaid (Live-Action)

My info came from the 2006 screening of TLM at the El Capitan Theater, which featured a panel discussion with Alan Menken, Glen Keane, Sherri Stoner, Jodi Benson and directors Ron & John .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_HVoUbnZAc&start=20&end=115 I'm somewhere up in the balcony, way offscreen to...

Re: Disney's The Little Mermaid (Live-Action)

AFAIK, every single Ariel in The Little Mermaid Broadway show portrayed her with red hair .. and I'm pretty sure a majority of them either dyed their hair red, or wore a wig. We can thank Glen Keane for the red hair; Eisner & Katzenberg apparently wanted to make Ariel a blonde, citing the popularity...

Re: Toy Story 4

Of course, I do know of Gabby from Gulliver's Travels .. but he's a guy. :P :lol: Also, 'Debra' or 'Deborah' are often shortened to 'Debbie' .. with two 'b's, in spite of there being only one 'b' in the longer name. Ditto with 'Abigail' to 'Abby'. So, yes .. I agree; it's interesting that I've inter...

Re: Toy Story 4

Eh; it looks a bit weird to me with two 'b's .. but mostly because I'd known her for years, and have never met anyone else by that name. :|

I was also thrown by The Princess and the Frog's "Prince Naveen" .. since I have two friends with that name, who each spell it 'Navin'.

Re: Disney's The Little Mermaid (Live-Action)

I saw one FB post where someone argued that TLM takes place in the Caribbean anyway... because Sebastian was Jamaican! (The Danish origins of the story were hastily pointed out to that person, plus the fact that no one else in the film was Jamaican. Plus, the fact that blacks weren't really indigen...

Re: Toy Story 4

Gabby Gabby (nudge Droo! ;)) I'm guessing, because I'd spelled her name 'Gaby'..? That's force of habit; I was good friends with a Gaby in high school .. and she was always quick to correct anyone who spelled it with two 'b's: "Gaby is short for Gabrielle; there's only one 'b' in my name." :mrgreen:

Re: New Disney Streaming Service: Disney+

Looks like one of the 'outtakes' from Toy Story 2 has been scrubbed from its latest home video release .. both on disc & digital downloads and (presumably) streaming.

All things considered, though .. this was probably the right call. :|

Re: Toy Story 4

Ben , you're correct that the original Toy Story had no Pixar short attached to it .. I forgot about that. In fact, I can't recall whether the movie had a short attached to it, at all, when I first saw it. :oops: I agree that Toy Story shares some themes with Off His Rockers (which I also agree is ...

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

That's Snoozer, the zoo watchdog. Dum Dum's appearance is similar .. but he's taller, stouter, and wears a scarf & feathered hat.

Re: WB Archive Collection: DVDs On Demand!

Wally Gator is coming in June! One more classic show down! No details yet on what exactly is included, I expect it would include the Lippy the Lion & Hardy Har Har and Touche Turtle & Dum Dum shorts as well, but we'll see. Originally called The Hanna-Barbera New Cartoon Series, it ran for 52 episod...

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

Cool. 8) Looks like they have a bunch of Smurfs holiday specials (listed under "Movies" ), too..! I don't recall seeing most of those available on DVD, even via Warner Archive. I've just got some sort of 'mental block' that keeps me from subscribing to streaming services, though. Maybe I'll get over...

Re: Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?

I'm waiting for Wally Gator [/i], next week .. then I'll get all of those, and the new Popeye [/i] set. “And I would’ve gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t been for those meddlin’ kids!” Hope they include the classic line. Lol. :wink: There was a programming block on the Boomerang TV channel awhil...
