Mickey Mouse is turning 88 this week, and Team Mousetalgia invites you to celebrate with us! First, we welcome Mike Van Eaton back to the show to discuss “Souvenirs of Disneyland,” an upcoming exhibition and auction of Disneyland memorabilia and merchandise. From a pen in the shape of a woman’s leg to a scale Imagineering model of New Orleans Square, this major auction is destined to make history. Then, we celebrate Mickey’s birthday by catching up with Disney comic writer Pat McGreal, who talks to Mousetalgia about his quarter century of giving life to Mickey Mouse and his friends. Jeff discusses the persistence of vision via Fields’ famed “Art of Walt Disney” book, and then we continue our birthday celebration with a roundtable discussion of Mickey Mouse shorts, Mickey Mouse collectibles, Mickey Mouse in the parks, Mickey Mouse songs, and more. Plus – Disneyland Paris goes to hyperspace; tutus rule, Guardians take the tower – and more. Special note: Jeff will be appearing Saturday, Nov. 19 at Creature Features in Burbank from 1 to 3 p.m. to sign his book “The Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney’s Haunted Mansion.”
