In a special Easter-themed episode, Michelle Valladolid & Jim Hill discuss how the Tokyo Disney Resort has turned this holiday into a two park, multi-week event. Jim then reviews the history of the Disney Bunnies, which is when DCP tried to build a brand around Thumper the Rabbit from “Bambi”


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

Why the Walt Disney World Resort has now a Spring-inspired event (i.e., Epcot’s International Flower & Garden Festival) rather than an Easter-based celebration.

How Horace Horsecollar almost became the star of his very own animated series, which was supposed to air as part of the Disney Afternoon syndicated programming block back in the early 1990s

That time when the Easter Bunny flew over Disneyland Park and then dropped rock-hard frozen orchids on the Guests who had gathered below on Main Street, U.S.A.

What Disney house composers Richard M. & Robert B. Sherman worked on right after they won two Academy Awards for their work on “Mary Poppins”

Why Disney Consumer Products deliberately created brands like Disney Bunnies, Disney Princesses, and Disney Fairies with an overlapping appeal
