          194 Darkwing Duck Creator Tad Stones!

          Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!

          Last week was really just a teaser for the conversation Eric and I had with Tad Stones!

          Tad has had a long career with Disney with both imagineering and with television animation!

          This was one of those interviews that I was able to just sit back and listen to Tad tell all of his stories. This episode is a must listen for fans of the iconic Disney Afternoon of the 1980s and 1990s.

          Eric’s connection to Skype dropped out somewhere in the middle, but he’ll get to listen to the complete interview just like you are going to listen and enjoy!

            Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!

            I have so much content to share, that there really isn’t much time to talk!

            My friend Laurie just came back from WDW and she’ll tell us about her experience in the new Pandora!

            I had a wonderful chat with Tad Stones which included a conversation about the new DuckTales reboot. This week I present just a bit of the conversation where we discussed the new series which has now premiered on Disney XD. I must say, I rather enjoyed it.

            And finally, as a tribuate and farewell to the Great Movie Ride, we’ll listen to some great audio of this classic and now extinct attraction!

                This has been a sad and tragic week for Disney and animation fans.

                              This is a week to celebrate, and cry. This week we’ve experienced a birthday of Disney icon. He’s got the sweetest disposition and has gotten stuck with all the bad luck for 83 years and we in Neverland are going to celebrate Donald Duck!

                              But before we even got a chance to blow out the candles on Donald Duck’s birthday cake, we learned of the passing of the great Adam West. Join me and Lost Boy Phillip (Kryptonian) as we remember the joy that both Adam West and Donald Duck have brought us.

                              Before we dive into that fun, we’ve got a trailer for both Disney Pixar’s Coco, and Marvel Studios Black Panther to discuss in The Neverland Trailer Park!

                                You’re possibly looking at our cover art this week and thinking to yourself, “Isn’t this supposed to be a Disney podcast? Wonder Woman isn’t a Disney princess, is she?

                                Well…no, she’s not. But here in Neverland we like to enjoy anything that helps us feel young and never grow up, and a Wonder Woman movie is just the ticket for the young at heart!

                                But don’t you worry, my Disney loving friends, Jeremy’s got you covered with some fun from the upcoming Cars 3 movie! In Kansas City and around the United States, your favorite race car is touring around in promotion of the upcoming Pixar film!

                                  We’ve reached an epic milestone in Neverland history! A milestone so epic, that we are celebrating the beginning of a new era. We celebrate something that has changed a generation, and the world. It’s effects are still being felt today.

                                  Star Wars has now been a part of the public conscience for 40 years!

                                  Unfortunately for our favorite Spider-Pan, his birthday just happens to fall one day after this historic event! He’s invited some friends to celebrate this occasion, but it seems there may be a bit of confusion. No matter, he and Lost Boy Retlaw (Eric) will just have to reminesce about Star Tours!

                                  Pixie Heather the WendyNerd is back! She and Jeremy took some time to see the newest in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and they have a review for you this week!
