This week, the Mouse Lounge explores what its like to have very little brain, which honestly isn’t all that different from most days.

Before we delve into this episode’s theme of stuff n fluff, we take in part two of three of a very special feature.  Back in 2006, yours truly sat in on a Walt Disney World Audition Workshop.  It was an intense couple of hours of enthusiastic performers needing a reality check and casting directors there to provide it, all in the spirit of better preparing those auditioning so they could earn one of the coveted performing spots.  Whether you’re a performer a not, enjoy an inside glimpse at what it takes to audition for Walt Disney World.

In From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.  Before Disney made their now classic films, several audio interpretations of the Pooh stories were made.  Some thirty years after the book’s initial publication, RCA’s Little Nipper series released an Upside Down record, which had a story on each side.  We feature here, Winnie the Pooh and the Heffalump, narrated by Jimmy Stewart.  Be sure to go to the Mouse Lounge multimedia page to listen to the flip side of the record, Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

Next, from the Disney DVD, the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, have a listen to a brief history of Winnie the Pooh.

Next, sidle up to the Mickey Bar, as Liana and I fling a little Pooh of our own.  I even sing a few bars.  Don’t be scared.

Meet Paul Winchell.   Listen to the voice of Tigger tell his story in this wonderful interview with BBC Scotland in 2004, just a year before Paul passed away.  

From the Disneyland Attraction Archives:  In 2005, Disney released the comprehensive, Musical History of Disneyland.  Among the tracks are two absolute gems I’ll play for you here:  The queue music, When the Rain Rain Rain came Down Down Down, and the attraction music itself, without most of the character vocal tracks and sound effects.  

Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week we serve up both versions of Pooh, from Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom, where many of you think the attraction truly belongs, and back to the West coast in Critter Country.  Listen to the subtle differences between the two.  Which do you prefer, and why?  Be sure to comment on the podcast page on the Mouse Lounge website.

We close the show with a duo of Pooh Tracks!  First, from the Walt Disney Records archive collection, the Chieftains perform the title track, Winnie the Pooh.  Then, while not really a Disney tune per se, its hard to separate Winnie the Pooh from one of Kenny Loggins most memorable performances, The Return to Pooh Corner.
