Drew Taylor & Jim Hill start off this week’s show by talking about how fan reaction to the “Sonic the Hedgehog” teaser trailer forced Paramount Animation to rework the look of that film’s title character. Then Drew shares an interview that he did with “Toy Story 4” director Josh Cooley, who reveals why Pixar decided to go big with the fourth film in this acclaimed series


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

How Jim Carrey was almost the voice of Tempus from Morph (i.e., that spaceman character which started out life as Lunar Larry, then briefly became Tempus, before finally being named Buzz Lightyear) in Pixar’s “Toy Story”

The “DuckTales” programming event that Disney Channel will be staged May 7 – 17th (8 new episodes in 11 days !)

The long term ramifications should Disney decide that Jim Cummings needs to be replaced at a character voice artist at the Studio
