Joining Cap’n Will Dodson and the old salt himself, first mate Wendell Jones, all the way from the West Coast, is Rachel Herrick! The team of podcasters set sail on the big blue wet thing to talk about a childhood favourite, the 1996 Walt Disney Pictures’, ‘Muppet Treasure Island‘, scored by composer Hans Zimmer, with songs by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.

Up next, the crew pick up pirate Legend Crewman Chris for another nautical instalment of the Disney Music Archives. Chris brings quite the shanty for today’s episode, ‘Little Toot‘ sung by the Andrews Sisters, with music by Vic Schoen. Taken from the 1948 Walt Disney Studios package feature film, ‘Melody Time‘, there’s more than meets the eye with this one!
