practically fall asleep. It DEFINITELY needs some serious reworking.
Ahh, but they can't change things too much - you have to remember there are many things going on frantically Backstage during those supposed "lulls".
They cast all have multiple overlapping roles and has to do costume changes and get between the various ships and boats in those gaps, they do not have enough people to crew them all seperately.
One person might be a Monkey on the barges AND a Pirate on the Columbia AND a "magical Pink Elephant" AND a segment of the Caterrpillar AND a Chimney Sweep on the Texas Deck of the Twain. You need a program to know who goes where and does what next - or a full script, preferably with the changes broken out in an Excel timeline chart.

They borrowed footage from everywhere in their library. Pinnochio had Cleo the goldfish, and she's in there too.
Many believe she's saying testicles especially when they're not listening closely.
There's also a very poorly placed hiss (that's not timed with anything on the projections) midword that adds an "ssss" sound right when the n is being said. It's on the soundtrack CD, quietly, but in some of the viewing sections it overpowers the dialogue so you her "Ursula will take matters into her own teSSSticles."
Of course, if there's no special effect, video effect or anything else at that moment to justify the hiss...
