    If you're a Disneyana fan, I'm sure that you'll recognize the following couplets: Serpents, spiders, tale of a rat, Call in the spirits, wherever they're at, Rap on a table, it's time to respond, Send us a message from somewhere beyond But this next line may not be as familiar to...

    "Now gather 'round, while I elucidate About what happens outside when it gets late. Around about midnight, the ghosts and banshees Get together for their nightly jamboree.

  • Blog Post: Brendan Fraser in "George of the Jungle 2" ?! Fat chance !!

    There's this great little moment about five minutes in to "George of the Jungle 2."

  • Blog Post: The Essential Geek #1: Secret Origins

    Hey, gang! Jim Hill here. And -- I know, I know -- we've been introducing new columnists left and right here at JHM lately.

  • Blog Post: You've been to "Finding Nemo" (the movie) ... now try "Finding Nemo" (the ice cream)

    I'm sure everyone knows that July is National Ice Cream Month, and the third Sunday in July is National Ice Cream Day. In President Reagan's 1984 official proclamation, he urged all people of the United States to observe these events with "appropriate ceremonies and activities." It is in this spirit...

    Hey, gang! Jim Hill here. Now I can't tell you who exactly it is who sent JHM this story.

  • Blog Post: Can Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" avoid a grizzly fate at the box office?

    Ah, what a difference almost-a-year makes. Some of you may recall how in late July 2002, Disney's "The Country Bears" opened in theaters nationwide.

    I got an opportunity to meet with Ralph Bakshi before the release of his animated version of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. I had been warned of his sometimes overpowering personality where he often assumed the persona of the "new" Disney who was going to save animation from the children's ghetto of Saturday...

    Hey, gang! Jim Hill again. Nancy and I are still out in California. As you read this, we'll probably already be on our way up to the Bay Area to check out some animation schools. And -- speaking of animation (nice segue, eh?) -- I'm pleased to welcome back to JHM guest columnist Mark Mitchell. Some of...
  • Blog Post: JHM Exclusive: Further stories from the set of Disney's "Haunted Mansion" movie

    Welcome, Foolish Mortals ... to a follow-up report to Monday's JHM column, which detailed A.K.'s experiences on the set of Disney's "Haunted Mansion" movie.
