Monday Mouse Watch: Excuses abound as to why "Cars" under-performed
The good news is ... " Cars " was No. 1 at the box office this past weekend, raking in $60.1 million. Which (according to Box Office Mojo ) gave this John Lasseter film the second highest opening weekend gross ever for a film that was released in the month of June (Only Warners' " Harry Potter &...

Unrealized Epcot: Rides, shows & entire pavilions that never quite made it off the drawing board
Jamie B. writes in to say: I really enjoyed this past Friday's Why For . It was great to see that very early version of " The Living Seas " and finally get a sense of what the ride-thru attraction that was originally supposed to have been built there was supposed to have been like. Do you have any other...

Be sure and set the Tivo: Pixar 20th anniversary special airs on ABC tomorrow night
Got plans for tomorrow night? Change 'em. Or -- at the very least -- set up your Tivo and/or throw a tape into the old VCR and be sure & record what ABC is airing Saturday night between 8 - 11 p.m. "What's the big deal?," you ask. "Isn't ABC just supposed to be showing 'The Wonderful World of Disney...

Double Booked: First JHM takes a look at the new Epcot Field Guide ...
Rarely has something so small given so much pleasure to a Disney Dweeb. Honestly, I don't know how Imagineer Alex Wright does it. Take the entire history of a Disney theme park and then squeeze it into a book that's so small you can literally fit it into your back pocket. Me? I can't even tell the story...

How much "Pirates" is too much "Pirates" ?
I have to admit - given that no one (outside of the folks who are currently working 'round the clock to finish up "Dead Man's Chest" 's over-1500 FX shots) has actually seen the finished version of "Pirates of the Caribbean II" - that it seems kind of odd to now be talking about what may lie out beyond...

"Disney Fairies" franchise gets ready to take flight
"Believing is just the beginning" … ... Or so say the folks at Disney Consumer Products . This is the over-arching catch phrase that DCP has attached to the " Disney Fairies " franchise.

JHM Follow-up: Junk Food, John Hench & a new Disneyana journal
You know, sometimes you can't fit all of the news into a single article. Which is why I thought it might be fun to introduce a new feature at JHM. One that would then allow writers at the site to double-back, follow-up on earlier stories. See if anything significant has changed or/and if any new details...
