We also take a look at Howard's famous temper, which could avail itself to anyone who didn't quite embrace or understand the creative passion of its owner--as illustrated in this cartoon by Beauty and the Beast director Kirk Wise following a less-than-successful story meeting with Howard and co-director Gary Trousdale:
But wait, there's more! Also in the Lounge, we pay a visit once again to the Walt Disney Family Museum and take a look at their new Maurice Sendak exhibit: 50 Years, 50 Works, 50 Reasons. My guest is guest curator Anel Muller, who gives us insight into Sendak's work, which was more than just his seminal children's book Where the Wild Things Are. He was a gifted writer, illustrator and set designer...and he was a huge Disney fan. Who knew?
It's all about beauties, beasts and wild things in this edition of The Mouse Castle Lounge. Enjoy!
The Mouse Castle Lounge can also be heard on iTunes and Stitcher.
