Celebrity-Shaped Popsicles

Nothing like a cold blueberry Darth Vader pop or a strawberries and cream Marilyn Monroe-sicle to quench your thirst on a hot summer day, is there?

11 Fictional Family Trees

They say you can’t tell the players without a program! When a story is an “epic saga” or a long-running series, some kind of guide will help immensely. Plot lines turn on family secrets, and fresh material is injected by the introduction of yet another relative. And sometimes, complicated bloodlines meet as characters marry each [...]

The Donald Duck Family Tree

Disney dorks like me will find this peek at Donald Duck’s lineage fascinating. Drawn by comic artist Don Rosa, it first appeared in “Walt Disney’s Comics (and Stories)” in 1995. It gives us a peek at little-known characters like “Sir Swamphole McDuck” and “Humperdink Duck.” What’s up with the mystery around Huey, Dewie and Louie’s [...]

I’ve collected a sampling of the cartoons below, for your viewing pleasure and amazement — be warned, some are pretty weird, and many contain offensive racial [...]

Learn Math With Donald Duck

Donald in Mathmagic Land was produced by Disney in 1959 to educate kids about math. After its theatrical release (and nomination for an Academy Award), the film was distributed to schools, and apparently children of the 60′s learned some math from this trippy cartoon. I’d never heard of it until a friend posted a link [...]

Donald Duck on the Futility of Nuclear War

In 1952, Disney released the 7-minute cartoon “Applecore” featuring Donald Duck and Chip ‘n Dale, the mischievous fast-talking chipmunks. In this short, Donald plays an apple farmer whose crops are being eaten by Chip ‘n Dale, so Donald retaliates, only to be foiled at every turn. This short is cute, but there is a hugely powerful [...]

A Very Disney Christmas in Sweden

The people of Sweden really love Donald Duck, or Kalle Anka as he’s called. They are especially enamored of the duck’s comic antics during the Christmas season, as the country pretty much shuts down for an hour on Christmas Eve to watch the 1958 Walt Disney Presents Christmas television special, “From All of Us to [...]
