The Disney, Indiana Podcast
In this bi-weekly podcast, your hosts Tracey and Scott take you to Disney, Indiana and discuss books, movies, music, theme parks, video games and whatever else in the Disneyverse they'd like to talk about. They'll share audio clips, interviews and other surprises along the way. If you enjoy all aspects of the Mouse, come hang out in Disney, Indiana. Disney, Indiana cannot be found on any standard map. It's more of a state of mind, or more precisely a state of heart.

In this episode, Tracey and Scott continue their 2012 Salute to Shorts monthly series with a discussion of the Disney Studios first sound cartoon, and Mickey Mouse's official debut: Steamboat Willie from 1928. They trace the history of this significant short and share their thoughts on the film.

Then, after listening to WWED's warm up act, our hosts celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Disney Parks nighttime spectacular Fantasmic with a live recording of the show from their February 2011 visit to Walt Disney World.

They then wrap up the show with a call to the Main Street Cinema and some listener feedback.

Welcome to Disney, Indiana!

Hello everyone and welcome to a very special episode, number 100! For this milestone episode our hosts decided to cover something near and dear to co-host Scott's heart. That's right, it's time for Wall-to-Wall Roger Rabbit in Disney, Indiana!

They start off in Belle's books with a look at what started it all with a review of Gary K. Wolf's 1981 novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? After that, they head over to the Main Street Cinema to review the 1988 classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit, directed by Robert Zemeckis and released by Disney-owned Touchstone Pictures. Besides the film, they also review the three Roger Rabbit shorts released to the Big Screen.

Once they finish their popcorn, they return to Belle's to review Gary K. Wolf's follow-up novel Who P-P-P-Plugged Roger Rabbit? and end their journey around Toontown at the Ink and Paint Club to talk about how Roger Rabbit and his pals have been used at the Disney parks around the world.

All that, plus some Roger Rabbit music on WWED, a call over to the Main Street Cinema and some very cool feedback!
