  5. QUESTION:
    Does anyone remember this Disney movie about the boogeyman?
    I remember seeing it when I was little - probably the late 80s. It was a Disney film on TV. I swear it was called The Boogeyman or Mr. Boogeymand, or there was a boogyeman in it and I remember something about a Black Widow. No one else remembers it!

    • ANSWER:
      I think you are talking about Mr. Boogedy (1986) that was on ABC on sunday night it was quite scary at the time, here is a web-site that will tell you about it.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Boogedy

      and movie poster http://www.flixster.com/movie/mr-boogedy

      There was a sequel to it called Bride of Boogedy (1987) that also aired on ABC on sunday night. Those are the ones that aired in the late 1980's

      But if you are talking about the movie Don't Look Under The Bed that aired in 1999 on the Disney channel that had the Boogeyman in it then here is the site for you to see the poster of it.

      I was thinking maybe Pollyanna or something, but sorry, I can't figure it out. I did find a list of the Disney characters at Walt Disney World (it would help other answerers to know if you were there or at Disneyland, in case the characters are different) and where they appear. It's for people who are traveling there and want to know which characters are where. You could compare that list to your encounters and see who the character is and then look up the movie on the Wikipedia Disney movies page.

    She is in a singing studio. And relizes the other singer copied her song (its one of the 1st eps) Her song midea came from the little mirmade story which later became a disney film....Arigato :)

    • ANSWER:
      Holy fudge! My name's Rebecca also, (spelled differently) and I LOVE Full Moon wo Sagashite! Okay, I'm not exactly sure what episode it is, I think that it's episode 24, My Father's Song. You can go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Full_Moon_o_Sagashite_episodes to look up a list of episodes, but on that website, the description is: Mitsuki second single will be "ETERNAL SNOW," a secret song by the legendary band, ROUTE:L, and written by Mitsuki's father, Aoi. "Coincidentally," Madoka chooses to debut as a singer with that very song.

      Is this the episode that you're looking for?

      Also, do you know a girl named Nicolette (not sure how it's spelled) who's father is in a band called Rocamundo, and a girl named Kathleen DeVries in 7th grade whose mother is also in that band, and would be in you're Rainbows group?

It starts off with just colours moving to the music and very quickly forms into set pieces with dinosaurs, or magicians (the mickey mouse part), or dancing crocodiles and hippos, and so on.

  19. QUESTION:
    What is the name of this children's film company that produces animated shorts?
    I know this is vague, but I remember when I was little watching these animated short films that weren't made by any large company. I always sorted them in my memory with the Rankin Bass films. I don't remember much, but I remember the logo being painted out in primary colors and that is was an acronym. I distinctly remember it starting with an "F" and I think there could have been an "I" or "L", possibly an "E." It was also all lowercase. Does anyone have any ideas?

    The animation was cheap quality compared to companies like Disney.

  22. QUESTION:
    How do you find out when a movie enters the Disney Vault?
    I want to begin stocking up on DVD's before they enter the vault. Where can I find out this info ahead of time? I don't watch a ton of tv, so I don't see the commercials.

    • ANSWER:
      This is taken from the Wikipedia on Disney Vault:

      The "Disney Vault" is a figurative representation of Walt Disney Home Entertainment's practice of releasing its animated features produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios on home video for a finite amount of time before placing them on moratorium.

      The practice is the modern version of Disney's practice of re-releasing its animated films in theaters every seven years, which began with the reissue of 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1944. [1] When VHS eroded the market for theatrical reissues by the early 1990s, Disney shifted its moratorium practices towards home video releases. Typically, a major Disney animated film is released on video or DVD for a pre-established amount of time, ranging from sixty days (the first Disney DVD releases in 1999) [2] to several years. [3]

      During the 1980s and 1990s, when the home video market was dominated by VHS systems, Disney films would be reissued every seven years, a time gap equal to that of their theatrical reissues. With the transition to DVD technology, the moratorium period was increased to up to ten years. [2] Television commercials for Disney home video releases will alert customers that certain films will be placed on moratorium soon, urging them to purchase these films before they "go back into the 'Disney Vault'". Some direct-to-video Disney films, among them Bambi II, have also been released with a pre-established window of availability. [4]

      The Walt Disney Company itself states that this process is done to both control their market and to allow Disney films to be fresh for new generations of young children. [5] A side effect of the moratorium process is the fact that videos and DVDs of Disney films placed on moratorium become collector's items, sold in stores and at auction websites such as eBay for sums in excess of their original suggested retail price. Disney's live-action films, Disney films that are produced by the Pixar studio, and films released by Disney's other film divisions/labels (Touchstone Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Miramax Films) are not held to this rule, generally only being discontinued when a newer edition is released.

  23. QUESTION:
    What part does disney have in studio ghibli films?
    Honestly. Disney started sucking years ago. I don't even think "Brave" was all they said it was, and the shows they play nowadays?. Jesus, play something good like the old days. But really. i LOVE studio ghibli. But what part does disney have in it?.

    • ANSWER:
      Quoted from Wikipedia: "Many of Ghibli's works are distributed in Japan by Toho. Internationally, The Walt Disney Company has rights to all of Ghibli's output that did not have previous international distribution, including the global, non-Japan distribution rights to Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away. As of September 2011, they share North American theatrical rights with GKids while domestic right remain with Disney"

      And FYI, Disney has the rights to Marvel (all Marvel that isn't Spider-man or X-Men), so The Avengers is a Disney movie. Pirates of the Caribbean is Disney.

      Also, Tangled was adorable.

      There are actually "cliques" in high school, problems of peer pressure, and mean kids who try to cause trouble just because they can. The movie and show also shot footage in actual school buildings--so you have an actual gym and stuff! And of course, high school basketball team's top player is a white boy who leads his team in elaborate musical numbers on the basketball court! This actually happens all the time!

And a kid travels to different parts of the world either using the wand or using the help of a fairy. Sorry I'm being vague.

    • ANSWER:
      A Simple Wish (1997)
      starring Martin Short, Mara Wilson, Robert Pastorelli, Amanda Plummer, Kathleen Turner, Ruby Dee, Teri Garr
      Wikipedia summary excerpt:
      The film begins with many fairy godmothers taking an exam,. Among them is one male fairy godmother. After a few hours of unsuccessfully trying to copy the others' exams in order to pass his own more quickly, Murray eventually finishes. Three months, we see park carriage driver Oliver Greening. After an accident with his horse, he picks up his daughter and son, Annabel and Charlie, from school, whereupon Oliver must go to his audition for a musical based on "A Tale of Two Cities".

  28. QUESTION:
    Is there still hope for traditional animation?
    I'm considering going into the field of animation (traditional animation in particular), but from what it appears, computer animation seems to be the more dominant division of animation. I've also heard rumors that Disney plans on producing only computer animated films in the future. Is this true?

    • ANSWER:
      You should definitely go into it if that's what you want to do. There is still plenty of work available in it - even though not many feature films are being made using it at the moment, 2D animated cartoons still dominate television (and always will, I think), anime is absolutely huge, and there's a lot of future in web animation as well. 2D computer animation is becoming popular, so if you learn that as well as hand-drawn animation, you shouldn't have any problems.

      Disney did make that decision but have since overturned it. I strongly feel that traditional animation is on the verge of an enormous comeback. Disney's traditionally animated classics continue to be the most popular animated films of all time (Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin etc) and consumers are quite sick of CG animated movies with funny animals at this point. The next Disney traditionally animated movie, The Princess and the Frog, is due out next year, a classic musical produced by the same people that produced Aladdin and The Little Mermaid (wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Princess_and_the_Frog ). If it is even half as good as either of the aforementioned, it will be absolutely massive, as people are longing for another movie like this - and more will follow its success. :) You may just find you entered the industry at exactly the right moment.

      Alternatively, you could study computer animation, but if you prefer the traditional way, that's what you should do - animation is hard work and you need to love it, so you need to choose what it is you most love over everything else.

      Good luck!

      According to Wikipedia, the movie was initially not much of a success due to the war and a delayed release. But people, I think, came to empathize with Pinocchio wanting to better himself, not only for himself, but for his "family".
      The main song "When You Wish Upon a Star" really resonates with people as a song that expresses a yearning for your deepest heart's wish to come true. Which I guess also would make it popular in the aftermath of the Great Depression and then World War II. (my take on it)

    What cartoon film was this scene from?
    I saw a cartoon film in the 90s and can't remember the title of it. It was set in New York with at least one cat who puffed up when he went over a subway vent. (It's not Oliver and Company.)

  37. QUESTION:
    What was your homeschooling experience like? How many years did you homeschool?
    I have been homeschooled for 5 years. This question is for homeschoolers and former homeschoolers only.

    • ANSWER:
      This is my 2nd year of home schooling and my last year of school. I graduate this year (2009-2010). I can tell you, It is a trillion times better than Public School. I never want to go back to Public School. A few people said I'd regret leaving But I don't regret it one bit, In fact I wish I could have left a lot sooner. Since I have been home schooled I have never been happier. I wish I could have been home schooled my whole life. I hated every second of Public School & I'm glad I don't have to go to it anymore. I wasn't thankful for it then & I'm not thankful for it now. Home schooling you can be yourself while in Public School they'll try to change you. Public School you can't be yourself.

      Being home schooled you have many more benefits, such as More Free Time, More Freedom, No Peer Pressure, No getting up Super Early, No being told what you should & shouldn't like, I can go on forever with pros of home schooling. I love home schooling so much. No more Peer Pressure, No more Stress, No more Rumors, No more being told what I should & shouldn't like. It's a dream come true.

      I have so much Freedom, I don't even know what to do with it. I highly doubt a lot of people go to their High School Reunions & I highly doubt a lot of home school individuals wish that they can go to Public School. Why? So they can get bullied & hurt all the time? Whatever.

      I'm pretty sure college will be much better & with nicer people.
      In Public School, If you don't like what most of the students like or if you like or do something different from them, You're automatically an outsider or whatever they make up according to them. Really Stupid.

      Like at the school I used to attend, If you're a guy & you like Disney, Animated Films/ TV Shows, The Golden Girls, Anime, Hannah Montana, Nickolodeon or Dancing. You're automatically gay according to them. Really Stupid. I'm pretty sure there's more things But I don't know. They'll also try to make up false rumors about the things you like to try & make attempts to get you to stop liking it.

      Like for me, They kept trying to tell me a bunch of lies about Walt Disney, Saying he was related to Hitler & that he hated Jews & White People. Also saying that he & Hitler are brothers. Really Stupid. Too add, It's like it's against the law at that school for a guy to like those things that I listed. Home schooling you can be yourself & like whatever you want. In Public School, If you try to be yourself, There's a good chance the students will try & change you anyway they can.

      Like I said, I never want to go back to Public School, If I did, I might as well commit a crime & get locked up in San Quentin, Folsom or Sing Sing. Or I might as well Highjack a plane & crash it in to Mt. Everest, Mt. Etna, Mt. Mckinley, Mt. Vesuvius, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Saint Helens or any mountain you can think of. Or I might as well Highjack a plane, Fly it to some country on South America, Jump in the Amazon River & get eaten & attacked by Piranhas. Or do that same thing, Fly it to some country on Africa, Jump in the Nile River & drown in the Nile or get eaten & attacked by whatever sea creatures inhabit the Nile.

      Also In Public School, Teachers expect way too much from you. Like I said. I love home schooling & I have never been happier. If I was still going to Public School. I'd probably be dead already or I'd be phoning a suicide hotline like crazy. Google Kids who were bullied to death or People who killed themselves because of bullying.

    • ANSWER:
      According to wikipedia this is the list of songs from the 1950 Disney movie:

      "Cinderella" - The Jud Conlon Chorus
      "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes" - Cinderella
      "Oh, Sing Sweet Nightingale" - Drizella, Cinderella
      "The Work Song" - The Mice

  41. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know anything about the new disney movie called Brave?
    I've seen previews in theatres but I want to know more.

    • ANSWER:
      Brave is a 2012 film. It's an upcoming American 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure film. In the film, the skilled archer Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) defies an age-old custom, unleashing chaos in the kingdom. After consulting a wise old woman (voiced by Julie Walters) for help, she becomes cursed and is forced to undo the spell before it is too late.

      The movie is being produced by Pixar Animation Studios, making this their thirteenth feature film, and will be released by Walt Disney Pictures. It was written by Brenda Chapman and Irene Mecchi, and it is being directed by Mark Andrews, who took over from Chapman. The film is scheduled for release on June 22, 2012 in the United States.

      The synopsis of the film reads: "Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late."

  43. QUESTION:
    What exactly is the new world order?
    Can someone give me a good definition that is understandable .. not like the ones at wikipedia .. in your own words, what is the new world order? And why is it bad? I heard some things about it but i dont understand what it ecactly is and how it effects/effected us?

    • ANSWER:
      The Illuminati is a secret society that has been around since 1776, they want to create a one world government, a "New World Order," with themselves in charge. The Illuminati are generally powerful and rich people. The Illuminati will kill anyone, anywhere at any time to get what they need.

      The people that are "Anti-New World Order" and speak out against the Illuminati will be murdered like 2Pac and Michael Jackson. 2Pac and Michael Jackson were going to warn the entire world about what the Illuminati are planning. If you look at the title of 2Pac's album "The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory" for example; 2Pac was referring to the Illuminati in this title, Kill + Illuminati. In the song "They Don't Care About Us" by Michael Jackson, "they" is the Illuminati. The Illuminati killed 2Pac, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Marilyn Monroe, Jon Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, John F. Kennedy, Abe Lincoln, Princess Diana, Martin Luther King, the list goes on.

      The Illuminati control everything, the music industry, film industry, pharmaceutical (legal industry), medical industry, colleges, banking institutions, Wall Street and the Political System. Their symbol is even on our money.

      The Illuminati control our Presidential Elections. Usually the president, who gets the most sponsorship, in the form of money and media coverage, wins the election. The Illuminati control the media, so whoever the Illuminati choose as a presidential candidate will win the election. They will also sponsor the other candidate too, to have entertainment for the public. Sometimes this does not always go according to plan, for example, in the election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. In Florida George W. Bush "won" over Al Gore. The Illuminati cheated so that their pre-elected candidate would win presidency. The Illuminati choose the presidential candidate with the closest blood lines.

      These are the thirteen families in the Illuminati:
      1. Astor
      2. Bundy
      3. Collins
      4. DuPont
      5. Freeman
      6. Kennedy
      7. Li (Chinese)
      8. Onassis
      9. Rockefeller
      10. Rothschild
      11. Russell
      12. van Duyn
      13. Merovingian (European Royal Families)
      These families have "ties" with the Illuminati:
      1. Reynolds
      2. Disney
      3. Krupp
      4. McDonald

      Most of the major wars and economic depressions/recessions of the past 100 years were carefully planned out by the Illuminati. Some of these include: The Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, The Great Depression, the Rise of Nazi Germany, Korean War, Vietnam War, 1991 Gulf War and French Revolution.

      Do you remember all of the unnecessary hype about the New Millennium, or the alleged Y2K crisis? This hype was created by the Illuminati. This had people selling their homes, building shelters, stocking up on survival kits, etc. The Illuminati are also building hype for a 2012 phenomenon. I do not think that anything major is going to happen in 2012. When 2012 comes and goes, it will be shown to be the biggest hoax since the Y2K phenomenon.

      A "New World Order" could be bad because the Illuminati want to drastically reduce the world's population.

    What are some connections to Alice in Wonderland in other films, music, books, etc?
    I am doing a project for my English Literature class and I am trying to find relationships between AIW and anything else in pop culture, but it's hard to find connections when you don't know what you're looking for. I do know about the connection with The Matrix, but anything else would be really helpful!

    • ANSWER:
      Do adaptations count? Wikipedia has an extensive list of adaptations: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice's_Adventures_in_Wonderland#Adaptations

      Here is a list of stuff based on Alice in Wonderland: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Works_based_on_Alice_in_Wonderland

      And if it isn't mentioned anywhere in there... the film Pan's Labyrinth is very much related, and while not strictly an adaptation or retelling of AIW, there are many similar themes, scenes... notice even the girl wears similar clothing to those worn by Alice (at least in the Disney movie).

      Also, apparently "sweet Lolita" fashion makes references to Alice in Wonderland all the time: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita_fashion#Sweet_Lolita

    What are the best children or family movies you have ever seen?
    My big sister knows a movie store owner and he asked her for a movie list of movies she wanted. So far we have: Shrek 3, Coraline, The Corpse Bride, Avatar, and Up. Please if you have anymore good movies please write and tell me them!! Thx! <3

    • ANSWER:
      Some of the most critically acclaimed modern children's movies include Spirited Away, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Howl's Moving Castle, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and James and the Giant Peach.

      I myself would recommend The Sandlot (1993), one of my favorite movies growing up, about a group of young baseball-loving boys in the 1960s. It's hilarious and charming, and extremely under-rated (in my opinion as a film student). It only has a 57% positive documented reviews, but I can assure you that anyone would love this film!
      A few more of my personal recommendations include The Road to El Dorado, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (THE ORIGINAL), Tarzan, and Pocahontas.

  47. QUESTION:
    When did production start for the 1939 movie adaption of the Wizard of Oz?

    • ANSWER:
      From Wikipedia:
      Development of the film started when the success of Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" showed that films adapted from children's stories and fantasy films could be successful. In January 1938, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer bought the rights to the hugely popular novel from Samuel Goldwyn. ... The final draft of the script was completed on October 8, 1938 (following numerous rewrites).

    Was the movie Alice in Wonderland based off an acid trip?
    My friends swear by it that this movie was based off someone's acid trip and they wrote it all down and turned it into a movie. I haven't found anything on the internet and I also highly doubt Disney would support anything based off drugs. I was wondering if this was a rumor or if anyone had any knowledge about this?

    • ANSWER:
      Have you ever seen any of Tim Burton's other films- if you have you'd never have asked this question LOL

      and wikipedia can be edited by anyone- don't have to be a member just hit edit and change facts- so not fact on that site most of the time

      also There is no proof or evidence or even cause to think that Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) took drugs. Alice in Wonderland was originally a nonsense story told to Alice Liddell (a friend's daughter) and her friends whilst on a boat trip. He later wrote the story down and was encouraged to publish it.
