Take A Ride Into Family Game Night In A Doom Buggy!

The 1972 Classic Game: The Haunted Mansion

The 1972 Classic Game: The Haunted Mansion

In a world of technology, apps, ipads, tablets and smart phones, it is hard to imagine a world where we sat down as a family and played board games together as a unit. And after a fun filled trip to Disneyland or Walt Disney World, what better way to relive that visit that by playing Disney’s Haunted Mansion Pop Up Board Game!

This classic game hit the scene in 1972 and was developed by Lakeside Games. Overall this pop up game proves to be fun in a simple way. The goal, make your way through the mansion in your Doom Buggy. As you make your way through the game play, the ghosts spin and move make the board ever changing.

Overall it is a simple concept, but a fun one none the less. I have many memories playing this game when I was young with my siblings and the best part was just looking at the artwork.

It was games like these that helped you relive your visit to the parks, recall the images you saw and make you want to go again.

The game is hard to find, but if you look hard enough I am sure the 999 Happy Haunts can help turn one up for you. There is a nice 3D rending of the game displaying how it moves and game play online. Oh how the memories are rushing back now.

The Muppets and Lipton Inspires People to “Be More Tea” and Break Out of the Autopilot of Every Day

Lipton Tea

Lipton Tea

Lipton® revealed plans for the launch of its “Be More Tea campaign,” a new global brand positioning encouraging people to snap out of their routines and to embrace each day with a more present, playful and thoughtful mindset. The campaign will kick off with a 60-second spot to air during the Academy Awards featuring the Muppets as they prepare for their upcoming movie “Muppets Most Wanted.”

“We live in a busy world. It’s easy to slip into a routine with our heads down, moving from one place or obligation to the next. Lipton wants to inspire consumers to ‘look up’, take in all that life has to offer and enjoy what you may have otherwise missed,” said Alfie Vivian, vice president of refreshments for Unilever. “This is what ‘Be More Tea’ means to Lipton and the philosophy we will bring to life in our new national ad campaign starring the Muppets.”

While launching in the U.S., the “Be More Tea” campaign marks the first time the iconic brand has introduced one global positioning worldwide.

Lipton® Inspires People to “Be More Tea™” and Break Out of the Autopilot of Every Day

The new ad featuring the Muppets will air for the first time on TV during the Academy Awards on Sunday, March 2. It highlights the essence of the “Be More Tea” spirit with the playfulness, fun and irreverence of the Muppets. The ad was created and produced by adam&eveDDB, London.

“Making movies and dating Miss Piggy can be stressful – especially the dating part. But I always try to stay cool and look on the bright side,” said Kermit the Frog. “That’s what this Lipton campaign is all about. In a world filled with high-stress wild-in-the-street types like Animal, you have to take time to enjoy life and ‘Be More Tea.'”

Miss Piggy―diva, fashion icon and star of Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted”―is photographed by the paparazzi (aka Animal) during the filming of Lipton’s “Be More Tea” commercial.

Walt Disney’s Olympic Engagement

By: D-Team Caitlin

The 1960 Winter Olympics

The 1960 Winter Olympics

Did you know that Walt Disney was involved in the organization of the 1960 Winter Olympics? This overlooked detail of Walt’s career is one that changed the course of Olympic history.

In 1958, the Olympics’ organizers invited Walt to be Chairman of the Pageantry Committee. The Olympics were to be held in Squaw Valley, California. After accepting the position, Walt proceeded by recruiting a team from within the Disney company, including the legendary John Hench, Ron Miller, Card Walker, and several others.

There were many notable innovations that Walt and his team brought to the Squaw Valley games, most importantly, the tradition of televised opening and closing ceremonies. Can you imagine not being able to follow the Olympics on television? Watching the Opening Ceremony is a beloved tradition for many. It is amazing to know that Walt was behind the first ceremony broadcast on CBS that year.

Star Wars Episode VII: Top 3 Fan Made Posters

So in the wake of all of us gearing up for Star Wars Episode VII, there is once again a buzz, a feeling of excitement, the force if you will making us all smile. If one studio can make a continuation to the saga, it is the Walt Disney Studios. Now I have to admit that I am just as excited for these films as I was for the prequels, and even the Special Edition releases. And I think I am most excited that my two youngest boys I will be able to share the excitement of taking them to the theaters to see an All-New Star Wars movie, something we will never forget doing together.

So enough of my rambling on. Star Wars Episode VII is coming our way none the less and fans from all over have been creating fake trailers, posters, pop art, as well as dropping very wrong information about the production of the film. But it does make it fun and exciting. So after spending many hours not working but looking at all the fan art, I have come to bring you my top 3 choices of the best fan made posters in the galaxy we call the internet.

Let’s begin with the strongest and most brilliant one. “The Evil Never Ends. Just Evolves.” This is great on many levels. First the photoshop work is fantastic. And from a graphic design aspect all items are in place from fantastic use of fonts, to placement, alignment and more. Now the concept is brilliant in the fact is still brings Vader’s helmet to the forefront connecting the films together even though we are aware Vader is gone. It hints at a new villain but doesn’t give away too much. This could mean anyone is game in the new extended universe of the films. All around this is a strong piece of fan art that is wonderful and exciting for the film.

"The Evil Never Ends. Just Evolves."

“The Evil Never Ends. Just Evolves.”

Now for the second one. “There Is Another Skywalker…” I love this poster for a variety of reasons. It is dark, much like the Jedi Posters of past. It also hints at Luke and Leia’s children. And let’s face it, they will be a key role in the next series of films. It teases you just enough to wonder where the story is going, it graphically gives a new look to the Jedi that hasn’t been seen since the prequels (meaning in the later films, Jedi were gone extinct). And the use of the deep black in the poster makes this fan piece pleasing to look at.

"There Is Another Skywalker..."

“There Is Another Skywalker…”

And finally the last of my top 3.  “Fear Is The Path To The Dark Side”. This poster is pleasing in a variety of ways. It has a great use of a lighter feel to it. It compliments the colors we see throughout the universe and also has the Falcon right there to keep us feeling at home with visuals we are used to seeing. It also gives us a hint to evil rising after what seems to be a calm galaxy now.

"Fear Is The Path To The Dark Side"

“Fear Is The Path To The Dark Side”

So there you have it. My top 3 Star Wars Episode VII posters made by fans of the universe all over the internet. What are your thoughts on these posters? Do you know of others that are exceptional? Let us know.

MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU

Remembering the Anniversary of Clarence Charles “Ducky” Nash Passing on February 20, 1985

Clarence Charles "Ducky" Nash (December 7, 1904 – February 20, 1985)

Clarence Charles “Ducky” Nash
(December 7, 1904 – February 20, 1985)

As Walt once said, Mickey is Mickey, Donald is Donald. But we all know that there are some very talented people that have been behind these characters for ages. Many of which we have had as guests here at DizRadio.com. And one of those first people to bring life into Walt’s characters was that of Clarence Charles “Ducky” Nash, the original, yes you guessed it, Donald Duck.

Donald has been Mickey’s friend and one of the fab five for ages. From his hot temper, to silly antics, you instantly fell in love with Donald. He was a character many could relate to. We all get hot headed, lose our temper and get frustrated when family members (like his nephews) cause trouble. But always in the end Donald was happy, humble and loveable. To this day Donald is still a fan favorite.

Clarence was such a key player in many classic animated cartoons that he was also the original voice of Tom in ‘Tom & Jerry’. And his hometown of Watonga, Oklahoma honors him with a street named after him. Walt had known who Nash was previously and asked him for information autions and assigned him to do some family of ducks in an animated feature. It would go on to be a lifelong career for him. The last film to feature the talents of our favorite duck was in ‘Mickey’s Christmas Carol’, although some commercials and promos afterward before his passing were still in existence.

So let’s not forgot how important these actors are in bringing our favorite characters to life. And in honor of the Anniversary of Nash’s death today, let’s all watch some Donald Duck and laugh the day away in these shorts that stand the test of time.

Clarence Charles “Ducky” Nash
December 7, 1904 – February 20, 1985
