Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by sharing Eddie Murphy’s thoughts when it comes to “Shrek 5.” They also talk about why “Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book: Making a Masterpiece” has just extended its run at the WDFM


Over the course of this episode, listeners will learn about:

What did Mel Brooks reportedly want to call the sequel he once wanted to shoot for his 1987 film, “Spaceballs”

Where – in the queue for Anaheim’s version of “Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway” – can you find a reference to “Runaway Brain” (i.e., that acclaimed-but-also-somewhat-controversial Mickey Mouse short from 1995)

Which two-time Golden Globe winner voiced the title character in Sky Cinema’s November 2022 release, “The Amazing Maurice”

Where will the artists who currently work at Sony Pictures Animation supposedly be moving to, come May of 2024

Which two characters were originally in the “South Park” pilot only to then completely disappear from that animated series in the final cut
