Greetings, trivia contest enthusiasts!

Clearly JHM readers enjoy a competition. Why For? Because we saw a significant jump in the number of people who decided to participate in last week's Pirates-themed trivia contest, which took its inspiration from that popular Disney Junior series, "Jake and the Never Land Pirates."

Anyway ...  The correct answers to last week's JHM trivia contest were:


Copyright Disney Enterprises, Inc. All rights reserved

1) What was the name of the first Disney comic book that Carl Barks contributed artwork on? Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold

2) Name the piratical character that Robert Newton played in Walt Disney Productions' 1950 live-action release. Long John Silver

3) Peter Ustinov played the title role in what Robert Stevenson special effects comedy from 1968? Blackbeard's Ghost

And this time around, our randomly-selected winners were Joe La Dow, Christopher Rhodes and  Benjamin Terry. With Christopher being awarded that  "Peter Pan Returns" DVD while Benjamin & Joe will both receive copies of that limited-edition Jake figurine which Disney Consumer Products gave away back in February at its big "Disney Junior" presentation during New York Toy Fair.

And speaking of giveaways ... Back in March when I was out in LA, I took part in a press junket that Disney XD was holding for its new animated series, "Ultimate Spider-Man." And as I was exiting that event, I was handed a gift bag which full of fun "Ultimate Spider-Man" related items (i.e. a t-shirt, a set of sunglasses plus a cool Spidey dimensional decal).

And seeing as Ma Hill always told me that I was supposed to share my toys ... Well, I'd like to now offer up this "Ultimate Spider-Man" gift bag and all of its contents to that JHM reader who can correctly answer these FOUR Disney spider-related questions:


One of these things is not like the other ...

  • In what classic Disney animated feature do pixies carefully place dew drops on spider webs?
  • Name the Academy Award-winner who voiced the character of Miss Spider for Walt Disney Pictures' 1996 live-action / stop-motion release, "James and the Giant Peach" ?
  • BONUS QUESTION: What was the hybrid film genre term that Disney's PR department coined in an effort to describe the first-ever Hollywood Pictures release, "Arachnophobia " ?

If you think that you have what it takes to claim that "Ultimate Spider-Man" gift bag, please send an e-mail with answers to all four of this week's JHM trivia contest to [email protected] Just so you know: Those answers must be received by 12 midnight ET on Thursday, May 11th / Friday May 12th in order for your entry to qualify. And the winner of Trivia Contest No. 4  (who will be randomly selected from the correct entries that come in over the next seven days) will be announced here on this site next Friday morning.

So -- again -- congratulations to Benjamin, Christopher & Joe. And good luck to those of you who will be entering this week's contest.

Have a great weekend, okay?
