    First, Noel Aronson writes to ask: Hello: It's a little belated, but let me add to the list of people congratulating you on getting your own web site.

  • Blog Post: Why For did Disney artists have to paint new panties on Jessica Rabbit?

    BigbyWolf235 writes to ask: Dear Jim, Perhaps you can help settle a Disney Urban Legend for me.

    Hey, Gang! My apologies for not having anything new up on the site for the past two days. But Nancy and I arrived back home from Georgia late on New Year's Eve only to find two feet of heavy, wet snow waiting for us. Then -- just as soon as we got the house dug out from under all of that crud -- another...

    StinkyCat writes to say: Jim: Congratulations! You actually got one right! Judging by the story that CBSMarketwatch just did as well as that report that Reuters just ran, it looks like the Walt Disney Company really is making one more run at the Jim Henson Company.
