  1. Thanks for the mention of the Disney on Parade souvenir program books. When I was a kid in the 1970′s, I had heard of Disney on Parade and really hoped to get to see it someday. But, things like that never came through the small town Texas area where I grew up. Being the dreamer that I was, at one time I had over-ambitious plans to make my own puppet show version of Disney on Parade. I never pulled that off.

    Regarding your wondering just what Goofy’s car act was, I have both of the two Disney on Parade View-Master sets and a tape of the show that was presented on The Wonderful World of Disney back in the day, so can shed a little light on it. In the earlier editions of the show, Goofy interacted with an old Model T jalopy that caused havoc. It would drive itself, the tire would go flat and Goofy would try to re-inflate it and it shot a flame at Goofy’s rear end at one point. This same act was in Disneyland’s Christmas parade for a number of years in the 1980′s. It was one of my favorite parts of the parade, probably because I had never gotten to see Disney on Parade as a kid! Herbie was in the parade for a few years, too. I always wondered if the jalopy and Herbie were the trick cars from the Disney on Parade shows.

    Goofy’s interaction with Herbie in Disney on Parade was somewhat similar to the jalopy act, with Herbie “pranking” Goofy. I think at one point he “swallows” Goofy with his front hood. And, if I remember correctly from the View Master pictures, Herbie and Goofy end up high above on high wires.

    Here’s an interesting article that came up when I did a search for Goofy and the Jalopy -

    I totally agree with you that Disney on Parade represents a sorely missed era of Disney. Watching The Wonderful World of Disney was an immeasurably important part of my youth during that time period. One of my greatest disappointments with the Disney Company today is that they have not made those wonderful tv shows and many of the movies that meant so much to me as a youth available to view today. As I’ve reached middle age, I really, really yearn to be able to revisit those shows.

    Thanks again. I really enjoy your podcast, guys!

  2. Great show (as always) but wanted to mention that “How D’Ye Do and Shake Hands” is from “Alice in Wonderland” as sung by Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee and not from “Song of the South”.
