Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how much they enjoyed “Steven Universe: The Movie.” They then reflect on the challenges of covering some animators’ post-Disney careers.


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

What did the original “DuckTales” TV series & “Chip ‘N’ Dale Rescue Rangers” have to do with Disney’s first-ever home premiere, “The Return of Jafar”

What was the second home premiere released by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment

Which 1936 book was responsible for Walt calling his most senior character animators “My Nine Old Men”

Why some Disney insiders believe that “Winnie the Pooh” ‘s July 2011 release date in North America was deliberately chosen in an effort to kill off hand-drawn animation at that Studio once & for all

What happened during one single 18 month-long period between 1994 – 1995 to change the face of feature animation in Hollywood forever
