But, Disney fans knew him best as the voice of the stingy Scottish Scrooge McDuck in various films/TV shows from the 1980s to the present.

He also was the voice of Mr. Flaversham in The Great Mouse Detective.

Mr. Young, you shall be missed!

Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #26: Mrs. Judson

I just want to offer my sincerest apologies for bringing this post extremely late! I had some delay in obtaining a copy of today’s film!

And what is today’s film, you may ask? Well, it’s Disney’s 26th animated feature, “The Great Mouse Detective” or as it’s sometimes been known, “The Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective” (which is kinda misleading, since the movie is really only about one particular adventure of the great mouse detective)! Regardless, let’s take a look at this movie! Continue reading “Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #26: Mrs. Judson”

My Top 13 Favorite Animated Disney (Canon) Films!

Walt Disney Animation Studios

Well folks, it’s about time that I open up my latest section of this blog: my “Top 13” Lists! Face it, we all love lists and love reading other people’s opinions, and I’m no exception. So I thought to myself that I should start making a few lists and hopefully some people would be interested in reading them!

I'm stuck reading this, aren't I?
I’m stuck reading this, aren’t I?

So I went ahead and decided my first list to be, “My Top 13 Favorite Animated Disney (Canon) Films”! It seemed an appropriate list to start with seeing as I’m already doing a project involving the Disney Canon. Maybe some of you were curious as to which films are my personal favorite?

"Simply, (yawns)...Ecstatic!"
“Simply, (yawns)…Ecstatic!”

 After looking through the list of the Disney Canon films and after much painstaking editing and re-arranging (I never realized how hard ranking things can be! To those of you who make lists often, I tip my hat to you!),

"Darn, I can't make the joke about the hat being the fastest piece of clothing because it goes on a head!"
“Darn, I can’t make the joke about the hat being the fastest piece of clothing because it goes on a head!”

I’m ready to share the results with you all!

Note: I personally find one’s favorites and preferences can vary over time, minutely, if not majorly! So keep in mind that as of January 2013, this is my list! Maybe when I look back at this list in the future, I’ll wonder why my #6 film was not #12? Or why my #10 film was not my #3? Or why my #7 film was even on the list to begin with?

Also, I have not seen “Wreck-It Ralph” yet, but I have seen all the other films in the Disney Canon! Hopefully, I don’t love “Wreck-It Ralph” so much that it affects my top 13! Oh, you’re probably wondering to yourself, “Why top 13?” Well, it’s because I’m not superstitious!
