In Episode 8 of Coffee with Kurtti we reflect on our in-person recording failure, how fun the Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet was, the Saving Mr. Banks trailer, and a little-known Disney employee periodical Jeff worked on called WD Eye. Below is a paraphrased excerpt from my conversation with Jeff Kurtti.
Jeff Kurtti: Here we are, not in person.
Keith Gluck: I feel like we should point that out early on in this episode, because we promised these great things like an in-person episode at the Mouse Meet.
Jeff Kurtti: The unfortunate thing about the Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet is that the evil Don Morin—
Keith Gluck: (laughs)
Jeff Kurtti:—who runs the whole enterprise… he is going to squeeze every drop of attendee time out of you that he possibly can. Which to tell you the truth, I have to give him much and mighty credit for.
Keith Gluck: Don definitely does a good job. Mouse Meet failure aside, the Saving Mr. Banks trailer just came out. We talked about that film during Coffee with Kurtti #1.
Jeff Kurtti: The trailer looks great, the production value looks great. The casting looks just handsome and wonderful. The hard thing from a fan standpoint is, nobody is ever going to be Walt Disney.
Keith Gluck: Right.
Jeff Kurtti: Tom Hanks, he’s just Tom Hanks.
After we talk Saving Mr. Banks for a bit, Jeff goes on to share a lot of great stories about what it was like to work on the magazine WD Eye. He also shares one the greatest magazine covers EVER, which I will now share with you. Enjoy!
