Dustin Fuhs & Jim Hill start off this episode by talking about what that music video Universal Studios Japan released last week does – and, more importantly, does not – reveal about Super Nintendo World. Then Jim does a deep dive on the history of the Doctor Dolittle film franchise


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

How the Power Up Bands (which will be available for Guests to purchase while they’re visiting USJ’s Super Nintendo World) will actually be a variation on the Interactive Wands found in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Where exactly you want to stand along Universal Studios Florida’s parade route if you’d like to take home an inordinately large amount of Mardi Gras beads

How the movie musical version of “Doctor Dolittle” that 20th Century Fox mounted in the mid-1960s was originally envisioned as the vehicle that would reunite the stars of the original Broadway production of “My Fair Lady”

Which aspect of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Lunar New Year Celebration was created for that theme park by the Jim Henson Creature Shop

What did Universal Creative do to the 40-foot-tall King Kong animatronic figure inside of “Kongfrontation” to help promote that theme park’s very first Mardi Gras celebration back in the Spring of 1996
