Please stand clear of the doors and welcome to episode 8 of Mouse Music, the podcast that always trys to imagine 6 impossible things before breakfast! We have a cracking show for you today! We’re jumping into the wayback machine to celebrate the newly-released Jon Favreau film by the same name the Walt Disney animation classic, ‘The Jungle Book‘!
For the first time in Mouse Music history we have a hostful! To discuss their favourite songs and moments from the 1967 animated musical, ‘The Jungle Book’, Will & Wend are joined in the virtual studio by voice actor, puppeteer, and creator of YouTube channels AdorkableRachel! and TheAdorkableVlog, Rachel Herrick, and curator of DisneyChris.com, host of the Jiminy Crickets podcast, our very own Disney legend, Chris Lyndon.
Next, our resident Disney historian Chris, sits down with Wend in our intermission segment, the Disney Music Archives, to present another musical treasure to tickle our eardrums. A piece which is known as the most famous song that was cut from a Disney film, ‘Never Smile at a Crocodile‘ by Frank Churchill, written for the film ‘Peter Pan‘.
Finishing on a high, the hostful return to chat about a day one attraction at Disneyland, Magic Kingdom, Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland, the world famous Jungle Cruise! After providing all you lovely listeners with a little history, they gush over their favourite section of the ride, the differences between each iteration in the Disney parks and share their favourite puns and jokes from this must-do riverboat cruise!
This marks the 100th episode on the Sideshow Sound Radio Network so thank you everyone for your incredible support, we really appreciate it!
