Mouse Lounge -- Season 03 -- Episode 09 (((HEADPHONES STRONGLY RECOMMENDED)))

In this episode of the Mouse Lounge, we hop into our DC-3 and head south of the border. Also, a full docket of Disney News from departments Entertainment, Theme Parks East, Theme Parks West, and Business.

From the Walt Disney Family Museum: Listen as Walt describes the sights and sounds of the lands in Latin America.

Excerpted from Walt Disney -- The Triumph of American Imagination: By 1940, the Walt Disney Studio had moved from Hyperion Avenue to the new Burbank studio still used today. The financial windfall of Snow White was now a distant memory and Walt had two financial failures on his hands, Fantasia and Pinocchio. The studio had been overrun by union organizers and production on Bambi was slowed to a crawl.

Those crossing the picket line were working on Dumbo, fronted as a picture they could just knock out quickly. While the lawyers were settling with striking workers in 1941, Walt needed to get away and find other projects. He found it in a working trip to South America. Learn about what prompted this material gathering tour of South America and the two unusual movies that resulted from it.

Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. This week a very special mix from three films featuring Donald and Joe Carioca. From 1944s, The Three Caballeros we meet Ya Ya selling cookies (and a little more) in the brilliant Baia sequence from the film. Also from 1944 on Decca Records A-373 Charles Wolcott and his Orchestra perform the title track, sung by Ray Gilbert. Then, from 1948s Melody Time and 1943s Saludos Amigos, Joe gives Donald a lesson in the Rhythm of the Samba!

Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week, from the Mexico Pavilion in Epcot we have a listen to Mariachi Cobre and take a ride on El Rio del Tiempo.

We close the show with a trio of interpretations of Tico Tico, from the Andrews Sisters, the Charles Wolcott Orchestra, and Don Swan and his Orchestra
