Message to ABC: We Want Our Grandmothers’ Muppets

Guys. The Muppets are getting their own TV show!! Praise Henson!

But here’s the description the ABC executive gave for the TV show.

“The Muppets return to prime time with a contemporary, documentary-style show that—for the first time ever—will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work, as well as romances, break-ups, achievements, disappointments, wants and desires; a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages.”

ABC chief Paul Lee also added this nugget of a quote. This new TV show is “not your grandmother’s Muppets.”

Top 5 Underrated Disney Movies

There are a lot of Disney movies, especially in recent past, that, though they’re wonderful movies, get a lot more hype than they really deserve.

Then there are these movies. Stellar little gems that are unfortunately overlooked and under-appreciated. I don’t just like these movies — I am passionately obsessed and if you disagree with any on this list, I will meet you with pistols at dawn.

Or balloon swords. Yeah, balloon swords are better.

The Only Acceptable Plot Lines for Frozen 2

We all knew this was coming, guys. But I don’t know if any of us were quite prepared.

And I think this pretty much summarizes the Disnerd reaction:

Yeah, Disney is returning to the sequel game. And, although they’ve regained my trust in a lot of ways, they have not yet earned back the sequels rights. So, the following are the only acceptable plots that would make me actively look forward to Frozen 2: The Quest for More Merchandise. Read More…

The Disney Difference – Disney with Disabilities

When Disney wants to sell you something for an obscene amount of money, they always cite the “Disney Difference.” The extra touch of magic, that peppy smile from the cast members, that further mile they go to make your vacation a truly special one.

We Disney bloggers and super-fans like to throw this phrase right back in their faces whenever Disney does something we don’t like. I’m no exception.

But I was never made more astutely aware of how phenomenal the Disney Difference truly can be than the first time I visited Disney as a disabled person.

World Showcase, Animal Trails, and Interactive Games: Discovering Disney World by the Slow Path

I’ve talked before about how theme parking is a sport, and often times a contact one. There is the phrase you’ll often hear at Disney, “I’m gonna need a vacation after my Disney vacation!”

And, honestly, that’s part of what I love about Disney. I love the thrill of a fast paced vacation where you soak in as much magic as possible.

But this past trip, my family and I decided to do it a little differently. We decided to…take. our. time.

Why I Hate Cinderella

Note: I was never fully satisfied with the way this piece turned out, so I re-wrote it in a way that better encapsulates my feelings, click here to read that article!

Guys. It’s no secret. I’m a capital F Feminist.

Friendly reminder that feminism means economic, social, and political equality of the sexes and doesn’t involve humorless man-haters who think males should be kept underground and used only for breeding purposes like Time Magazine would have you believe. But I digress.

I also love Disney. That one should also be obvious. I mean, I have a blog about it.


So when I watch the original princess movies, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc, I get a little angsty at the anti-feminist messages the movies portray. As I’ve grown older, though, I’ve come to appreciate the benefits and occasional positive lessons to be learned from these movies as long as they’re given the proper context by the parents who introduce them. I’ve even come to genuinely like Snow White.

But there is one princess who defies salvation. Nothing can pardon her egregious sins against the cause for true equality of the sexes. Dat bitch? Read More…
