  • Blog Post: "Cars" 's premiere to be held (appropriately enough) at North Carolina racetrack

    Listen. Do you hear that persistent whining sound? "What sort of miserable creature could ever make a horrible noise like that?," you ask. Well, that -- my friends -- is the sound that an East Coast-based Disneyana fan makes. Mind you, the reason that these poor pitiful people continually whine like...
  • Blog Post: Only two more weeks 'til the Janet McDonald Memorial Walk Against Cancer

    Cancer can do many things. It can sap your strength. It can rob you of your stamina. It can even erode your good looks. But you know what it can't do? Cancer can't destroy inner beauty. It can't ever corrupt a generous spirit and/or a noble heart. More importantly, cancer just doesn't stand a chance...
  • Blog Post: Why For returns

    First up, Jeff S. writes in ask: What is the word behind Bob Iger's announcement in the Disney Shareholder's meeting that "Song of the South" is still not coming to DVD? Dear Jeff S. Well, if you listened to the webcast of Disney's annual shareholder and/or were at Arrowhead Pond last Friday morning...
  • Blog Post: The folks from Pixar "Meet the Robinsons"

    You know, no one in Hollywood ever wants to admit that their film may be in trouble. Out of concern as to what that particular piece of information might then do to that motion picture's long-term box office prospects. So -- earlier this month -- when the Walt Disney Company quietly revealed that it...
  • Blog Post: Monday Mouse Watch: How things wax and wane out west

    Fame is fleeting. I'd always heard that cliche but never quite understood what it meant. Until these past five days in LA.

  • Blog Post: Just three more weeks 'til the Janet McDonald Memorial Walk Against Cancer

    Okay. I know. You came to JHM this morning, looking for my weekly "Why For" column and found -- in its place -- a story about cancer. Bleh. I apologize for that. And promise that -- once I get back from LA (I'm out here to cover Disney's annual shareholders meeting. Which gets underway at Anaheim's Arrowhead...
  • Blog Post: The "Cars" showroom is now open!

    You know, one of the best parts of this writing-for-the-Internet gig is that -- on occassion -- people will actually give you a "heads up" when something cool has just happened. Take -- for example -- this brief note I got from BG yesterday. Which (in its entirety) read: CARS site now updated with content...
  • Blog Post: Does no Joe mean that Disney could soon be in for another Howard's end?

    Look, I know that today's piece isn't going to make me all that popular with the people at Pixar Animation Studios . Particularly given that it's been just over six months since Joe Ranft was tragically killed in that car accident and his loss is still so keenly felt by all the folks up in Emeryville...
  • Blog Post: Disney theme park emergency plan is simple as A, B, C

    Martin L. writes in to ask: Jim -- This may seem like kind of a weird question to ask. But I was wondering if you had any stories about what really happened in the Disney theme parks on 9/11? How did Disney break the news to all those guests that something horrible had just happened and that -- as a...
  • Blog Post: Remembering Don Knotts (1924 - 2006)

    By now, I'm sure that you've already heard that Don Knotts passed away this past Friday night. The sitcom legend -- who'd been quite ill for a number of years now -- died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills from pulmonary and respiratory complications.
