Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how 2020 may finally be the year that Laika gets to take home an Oscar for Best Animated Feature. They then do an in-depth look at animated features that Walt Disney Pictures released theatrically that drew their inspiration from animated TV series.


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

How “Goof Troop” was originally supposed to be this television show where Goofy was the scoutmaster of this misfit group of scouts

Why Terry Minsky’s recent exit as the showrunner of Disney+’s “Lizzie Maguire” reboot could have been predicted by Disney’s dealings with Hillary Duff & her mom/manager back in the early 2000s

How Walt Disney Animation Studios hopes that the upcoming release of a singalong version of “Frozen 2” will convince folks to see this Chris Buck / Jennifer Lee film one more time

The never-produced version of “Toy Story 3” that Cheri & Bill Steinkellner wrote for Disney’s Circle 7 Animation studio

How “Doug” (which originally started off life as an animated series on Nickelodeon) eventually wound up running on ABC for three years as part of that network’s “One Saturday Morning” programming block
