Meet the Robinsons Artwork for our Disney Music Podcast

Mouse Music #12 – Meet the Robinsons

Space travellers and treasured listeners of Mouse Music, welcome to a podcast celebrating the magic, music and history of the Walt Disney Company! The future has arrived in our 12th episode, as we discuss the computer-animated, sci-fi comedy film, Meet the Robinsons!

Joining Will & Wend for their high-flying adventure, as always, is Rachel & Todd! The team of podcasters head to the future to talk about the 2007 Walt Disney Animated Studios’, ‘Meet the Robinsons‘, scored by composer Danny Elfman and performed by the Hollywood Studio Symphony.

Up next, the crew pick up Chris, turn back the clock, raise the Swiss flag and build a treehouse in the Disney Music Archives. Chris brings us an earworm from Adventureland for today’s episode, ‘Swisskapolka‘ written by Buddy Baker. Taken from the 1960 American Adventure film, ‘Swiss Family Robinson‘, enjoy Chris & Wend’s premiere performance on vocals and organ of the lyrics written by Bob Jackman!

As Chris treats his mouse bite, Rachel and Todd return us to the future to finish the show In the Parks at spaceport seven-five, with Rachel’s favourite attraction, Space Mountain! After a speedy journey through the ride’s history, the team celebrate the Tomorrowland rollercoaster by sharing their memories and thoughts on all the ride’s iterations including it’s memorable techno score, composed by Michael Giacchino.
