Gosalyn Mallard

Gosalyn

Gosalyn Mallard is the adopted daughter of Drake Mallard, aka Darkwing Duck. In television shows she can be found in Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, and Raw Toonage. She can be found in the extremely difficult video game, Darkwing Duck. In other merchandise she can be seen in comic books, vinylmations, toys, clothing, pins, and Disney art.

She lives in St. Canard with her father. Her best friend in the whole world is Honker Middlefoot, and she also has many friends she can count on when needed such as Launchpad McQuack, Morgana McCawber, Darkwing Duck, Goofy, Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, and the rest of the good Disney characters. Her enemies include Negaduck, Megavolt, Bushroot, Steelbeak, Taurus Bulba, Quackerjack, F.O.W.L., Liquidator, Tank Muddlefoot, Professor Moliarty, and the rest of the evil Disney villains.

 Gosalyn

Gosalyn is a very small and young duck. She has red hair which she has up in pigtails, light yellow feathers, green eyes, and an orange beak, legs, and feet. Her main outfit consists of a purple football jersey with the number 1 on it, which has pink sleeves, and a pink collar. She also wears white sicks with white and red shoes.

She is extremely intelligent, rebellious, brave, caring, and very sarcastic. Her full name is Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard. She was voiced by Christine Cavanaugh who also has voiced characters in Recess, 101 Dalmatians: The Series, and Hercules: The Animated Series. She was animated by Tad Stones.

 Gosalyn

Gosalyn Mallard can't be found in Disney parks. It would be nice to see Disney come back out with the old Disney Afternoon shows. Rumors are going around it will be making a comeback like DuckTales, but only time will tell if this really happens.

The Incredible Hulk

Bruce Banner/Hulk is a remarkably intelligent scientist. His first appearance was in the comic book 'Incredible Hulk' which was released in May, 1962. He has been a staple in the Marvel universe since debuting and has gone on to have his own comic books, crossover comic books, movies, TV shows, toys, clothing, and other merchandise. In movies he can be seen in 'Ultimate Avengers,' 'Ultimate Avengers 2,' 'Planet Hulk,' 'Hulk vs. Thor,' 'Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow,' 'Hulk vs. Wolverine,' 'Hulk' 2003), 'The Incredible Hulk' (1977), 'The Incredible Hulk' (2008), and opening May 4th, 2012 'The Avengers.' In TV shows he can be seen in "The Superhero Squad Show," 'The Incredible Hulk' which was live action and also animation over the years. Also 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes' which is on Disney XD with season two starting April 1st, 2012. He can also be found in multiple 'The Incredible Hulk' video games.

He is from Dayton, Ohio. He has many relatives a lot of them who are deceased, most notably Brain Banner (father), Rebecca Banner (mother), Betty Ross-Banner (ex-wife and true love), Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross (ex-father in law), and he also has three children (two sons and one daughter). He has many allies but most notably The Avengers and the Fantastic Four. His enemies include his biggest rival, Abomination, along with Dr. Doom, Loki, General Thunderbolt Ross, and sometimes his close friends and allies.

Bruce/Hulk specializes in nuclear physics, and after graduating from California Institute of Technology he got a job working for the United States Defense Department, working in New Mexico. Bruce was working on the gamma bomb project and during a testing of the gamma bomb, Bruce ran to save a civilian named Rick Jones. He got him to safety but the bomb went off before he took cover and was infused with radiation and that was the beginning of The Incredible Hulk. Hulk is the strongest of any Marvel character ever created. In World War Hulk, Hulk seeks revenge against anyone and everyone for being exiled to Plant Sakaar. He literally goes to war with all superheroes.

*FUN FACT* Lou Ferrigno, who was the Hulk in the original 1977 TV series, provides the voice for Hulk in all movies and animated features/TV shows.

He was created by the Marvel founder and genius Stan Lee, and Jack Kirby. Comic book writers are in my opinion the best writers, because the stories of superheroes and villains are second to none. Characters can be around for 40 years and they still don't run out of story to tell. To date Hulk can be found in over 1,000 different comic books.

Bruce Banner/Hulk can't be found in Disney theme parks at this point. With Disney purchasing Marvel, hopefully Disney will incorporate the wonderful characters into the parks in the future. In the mean time I highly recommend for people to check out comic books, they open up a world of fantastic characters and story lines. Who knows you might even get hooked on them.

Thor Odinson

Thor is the larger then life Demi-god from the Mega billion dollar blockbuster 'The Avengers.' Thor can also be found in the film 'Thor,' 'Hulk vs. Thor, 'Planet Hulk,' 'Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow,' 'Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers,' 'Thor: Tales of Asgard,' 'Ultimate Avengers 1 and 2,' and in the upcoming film 'Thor: The Dark World' hitting theaters in November 2013. In television shows he can be seen in 'Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes,' 'Ultimate Spiderman,' 'Marvel's: The Super Hero Squad Show,' and the upcoming new Disney XD series 'Avengers: Assemble.' He can also be found in the video game Thor: God of Thunder. In other merchandise he can be found in comic books, toys, clothing, and other collectables.

He was actually born in Norway but lives in Asgard. He has many people he can count on such as the rest of the avengers, Odin (father), Frigga (mother), Mjolnir (his hammer), Jane Foster, The Warriors Three, Spiderman, and Sif. His enemies include Loki, Destroyer, Dr. Doom, Amora the Enchantress, Mephisto, and the Frost Giants.

*FUN FACT* In the film 'Thor' Jane Foster offers Thor a shirt from her ex boyfriend Donald Blake. In the comics Odin exiles Thor to Earth (Midgard). While there he is a crippled doctor named Donald Blake and works with Jane Foster. It was a fantastic nod to the comic books.

Thor wears a very dynamic suit which consists of metal chain links for his arms and shoulders, black pants, a black and blue armored vest with 6 silver pods on the front, black forearm bands, black boots, black shin guards, a red cape, and a magic hammer that allows him to fly and control lightning. Mjolnir has a scripture saying "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor."

He was created by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Larry Lieber. He is played by Chris Hemsworth in the Films and he has been voiced by Matthew Wolf, Dave Boat, Travis Willingham, Rick D. Wasserman, and Michael Adamthwaite,

Thor cannot be found in Disney parks at this time but with all of Marvel gaining popularity it will only be a matter of time before we start seeing Marvel integrated into the theme parks in my opinion.

The Horned King

The Horned King

The Horned King, in my opinion, is one of the most terrifying Disney villains of all time. He can be found in the 1985 Walt Disney animated film 'The Black Cauldron.' This film is one of Disney's forgotten gems, but it really has quite the cult following. He can also be seen in the television show, 'House of Mouse.' In video games he can be seen in Mickey Mouse, The Black Cauldron, and Land of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse. He can also be found in other merchandise such as books, toys, games, clothing, Disney art, vinylmations and pins.

He lives in his castle along with his guards. His allies include Creeper, the Cauldron Born, Gwythaints, and the rest of the evil Disney villains. His enemies include Gurgi, Fflewddur, Taran, Fflam, Hen Wen, Eilonwy, Dallben, and the rest of the good Disney characters.

The Horned King

The Horned King is very creepy looking. He is made of only bones and has large horns. He has creepy yellow eyes with red pupils, sharp pointy teeth, and he wears a large red robe with fur that goes around his neck, down his back and to the floor. He is extremely psychotic, vile, and pure evil.

He has been voiced by a few people over the years such as Corey Burton and John Hurt.

The Horned King

The Horned King can only be found in Tokyo Disneyland in the Cinderella Castle Mystery Tour. It really is a shame, he would make a great villain to have around the parks especially during the Halloween time. I can see why Disney wouldn't have him out more, since he is extremely creepy and would scare a lot of kids. I would love for Disney to bring him in at least in reference form.

Magica De Spell

Magica De Spell

Magica De Spell is one of the main villains from the mega hit Disney Afternoon show, 'DuckTales.' In the show, she was always after Scrooge McDuck's number one dime. She can also be found in the television shows, 'Darkwing Duck,' and 'Quack Pack.' It will be interesting to see if she is included in the upcoming reboot of 'DuckTales' on Disney XD. In video games she can be found in DuckTales, DuckTales Remastered, Mickey's Racing Adventure, The Lucky Dime Caper, Disney TH!NK Fast, and Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers. She can be found in other merchandise such as toys, pins, Disney art, clothing, books, and other collectables.

She makes her home in Mount Vesuvius. She can count on other vile villains such as Pete, Poe De Spell, Flintheart Glomgold, the Beagle Boys, Phantom Blot, Dracula Duck, Argus McSwine, Negaduck, Madam Mim, and the rest of the evil Disney villains. Her enemies include Scrooge McDuck, Launchpad McQuack, Bubba the Cave Duck, Donald Duck, Huey, Webby Vanderquack, Louie, Gladstone Gander, Dewey, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Fenton Crackshell, Darkwing Duck, Gus Goose, Betina Beakley, Gyro Gearloose, and the rest of the good Disney characters.

 Magica De Spell

Magica De Spell is a very powerful witch. She has black hair, black eyes, purple eyeshadow, and she wears a black dress with red cuffs, and black high heels. She is extremely cruel, intelligent, and very full of her self.

She was designed by the great Carl Barks. She was voiced by June Foray.

Magica De Spell

Unfortunately like most of the great Disney Afternoon characters you can't find them in any of the theme parks around the world. You can find references here and there from the characters, but that's about it. It would be great if Disney would bring these amazing characters back into the fold.

 

September 20, 2017

The Phantom Blot

The Phantom Blot is one of the first villains that tormented Mickey Mouse. The two have had numerous battles over the years. He has been seen in many different things including TV shows such as 'Mickey Mouse Works,' 'House of Mouse,' and 'DuckTales.' Also after a long absence he is back and plays a huge part in the video game, Epic Mickey. The Phantom Blot can be mainly found in comic books and old cartoon shorts. More recently he can be found in a 'DuckTales' and 'Darkwing Duck' intertwined comic book called 'Dangerous Currency.' He can be found in other rare merchandise like toys, clothes, buttons/pins, and Disney art.

It is unclear where the Phantom Blot has lived but in 'Epic Mickey' he makes his residency in Wasteland and wants to be ruler of it. The only known relative of the Phantom Blot is his daughter Phantom Brat. Phantom Blot has many allies on his side including Madam Mim, Beagle Boys, The Mad Doctor, Magica De Spell, and the rest of the evil Disney villains. His enemies include Mickey Mouse and the rest of the fab five, Darkwing Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and the rest of the forces of good.

Phantom Blot is a very dark and mysterious figure, he wears a dark cloak and the only thing you can see on him are his smile and his eyes which vary from white, yellow, and red depending on which comic book, TV show, or video game it is. His black hood hides his secret identity, which was revealed at one point: he resembles a evil faced goofy with a moustache. Phantom Blot has been one of Mickey's most challenging rivals of all time.

He has been voiced by Frank Welker, and also John O'Hurley. He was animated by the group of Merrill De Maris, Ted Thwaites, Bill Wright, and Floyd Gottfredson.

I have researched to see if Phantom Blot has ever been in the theme parks but found nothing. I would love to see him in the parks, even if it is just during Halloween time since I am a huge fan of all the Disney villains. He is a fantastic yet forgotten character.

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily is the young Native American princess in the 1953 Walt Disney animated classic, 'Peter Pan.' She can also be seen in the video game Peter Pan: Adventures in Neverland. In other merchandise she can be found in books, toys, clothing, pins, and various Disney artwork. Many people think Tiger Lily is one of the most important characters in the 'Peter Pan' film, play, and book.

Flintheart Glomgold

Flintheart Glomgold

Flintheart Glomgold is the evil duck from the wonderful world created by Carl Barks. He can be found in the television show 'DuckTales,' and he also had a cameo in 'Darkwing Duck.' In video games he can be found in DuckTales, DuckTales Remastered, DuckTales 2, and DuckTales: The Quest for Gold. In other merchandise he can be found in toys, books, pins, Disney art, and other various merchandise.

He has lived in a few places over the years such as Duckburg and South Africa.

His enemies include Launchpad McQuack, Huey, Donald Duck, Louie, Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Gyro Gearloose, and the rest of the good Disney characters.

Ducktales

Flintheart is a very old duck. He is skinny and has white and gray feathers. He has worn many different outfits over the years but the most common being a kilt, and a blue coat (sometimes green), a Scottish hat, and glasses. He has a very thick Scottish accent, and uses a cane while he walks.

He has been voiced by many people over the years such as Brian George, Hal Smith, and Roger Carel. He was created by the legendary Carl Barks.

Glomgold pin

Flintheart Glomgold can't currently be found in Disney theme parks. When DuckTales was popular I remember seeing photos around the parks but he hasn't been seen since. It would be really good to see Disney bring this characters to the parks and even in television shows or other things.

 

August 30, 2017

Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins is the lead character in the 1964 classic Walt Disney film, "Mary Poppins." The East wind blew Mary Poppins to Number Seventeen Cherry Tree Lane in London, England.
Mary Poppins doesn't have a family. I believe Bert is as close to a family member that she has. She lives for helping the children of the world that are in need of help. Bert, Jane and Michael join her on her adventure in the movie.
On a side note, I also recommend everyone reading the fantastic P.L. Travers books about Mary Poppins. There are 8 books in the series: Mary Poppins, Mary Poppins Comes Back, Mary Poppins Opens the Door, Mary Poppins in the Park, Mary Poppins from A-Z, Mary Poppins in the Kitchen, Mary Poppins in Cherry Tree Lane, and Mary Poppins and the House Next Door.
Mary Poppins wears many outfits in the film and in the parks. Her primary outfit is a dark blue dress jacket, and a long dark blue skirt with a white and yellow dress shirt and red bow. With it she wears a Black hat with flowers on it, white gloves and black shoes. Her second outfit is the white and yellow dress shirt with a red bow, long dark blue skirt and a white apron. Her third outfit is a beautiful white dress with red and pink sequences all over and a white hat that has flowers on it with a white and olive green umbrella and white and pink boots.
Mary Poppins is played by one of the greatest actresses of all time in my opinion Dame Julie Andrews.
You can find Mary Poppins everyday at Walt Disney World at the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot. She can occasionally be found at the Magic of Animation building at Hollywood Studios, and at Prince Charming Regal Carrousel in the Magic Kingdom. Mary Poppins can also be seen on Broadway. The play started at West End in 2004 and eventually opened on Broadway in 2006. You can learn all about Mary Poppins in a fantastic episode of the W.E.D.nesday Show as in Episode 56 Brent talks about all things Mary Poppins!

Monterey Jack

Monterey Jack

Monterey Jack is the rough and tough mouse from the hit Disney Afternoon show, 'Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers.' He will also be seen in the upcoming 'Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers' film coming to theaters in 2016. He can also be seen in video games including Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers 2, and Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers: The Adventure in Nimnul's Castle.

Monterey Jack

Monterey Jack is an overweight brown mouse. He has green eyes, large ears, a big brown nose, red hair, large teeth, and a big bushy red mustache. His outfit consists of a blue turtleneck, a brown trench coat, a brown bomber hat, and a pair of goggles. His favorite thing in the would is cheese, which has gotten him into a heap of trouble over the years. He is very tough, sassy at times, but he can also be a big chicken as well.

He has been voiced by a few people over the years including the extremely talented Jim Cummings (who has voiced well over 100 Disney characters and counting) and Peter Cullen.

Monterey Jack

Monterey Jack and the rest of the Rescue Rangers can't be found in Disney theme parks anymore. You could have found them back when the Disney Afternoon was in its prime. It would be really great to see Disney bring back the Disney Afternoon and integrate these old school cartoon characters into the parks in some shape or form. I think the Disney Afternoon could be as popular now as it was back then.

Beagle Boys

So for my Who's Who article this week I decided to do a group article, because this group of misguided criminals have to be introduced as a group. The Beagle Boys can be found in movies (Mickey, Donald and Goofy: The Three Musketeers, and Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas), video games (DuckTales, and Donald Duck: Going Quackers), TV shows (DuckTales, and cameos in Darkwing Duck, Quack Pack, and Bonkers), comic books and other merchandise.

The Beagle Boys are from Duckburg, and find themselves in jail after every failed attempt at a heist and always escape from the pen (I mean, who wouldn't want a crowbar, machine gun, chainsaw, or hand grenade cake from Ma Beagle). There are so many Beagle Boys they could make up there own small town. Tons of Beagle Boys and Girls have made appearances in the DuckTales series or comic books.

The Beagle Boys that are seen most often are Babyface, Bigtime, Bouncer, BeBop, Baggy, Burger and Bankjob. They also have Ma Beagle, Magica De Spell, Flintheart Glomgold and others as close allies. Their enemies are Scrooge McDuck, Launchpad McQuack, Gizmoduck and others.

The Beagle Boys all have the same outfits with the exception of their prison numbers. They all wear red long sleeve shirts, blue pants, brown shoes, burglar masks, prison number tags on their chests, and green hats in DuckTales (and blue hats in the comic books) . Even their dog Ottoperotto has the same outfit.

The Beagle Boys were created by Carl Barks, and they are voiced by the group of Terry McGovern, Brian Cummings, Chuck McCann, Frank Welker and Peter Cullen.

In my personal opinion one of the biggest mistakes Disney has made was taking DuckTales off the air. I believe it's the greatest show Disney has every created. I believe all of the Disney Afternoon shows should be back on air. I have talked about this in the past, but a vintage Disney Channel would be so amazing! Maybe it is time to start a petition to get DuckTales back on the air!

After looking for this answer for quite a while it doesn't look like the Beagle Boys can be found in Disney parks anymore. Looks like they are like Scrooge McDuck: a very, very rare find.

 

August 2, 2017

Minnie Mouse

Minnie Mouse is a member of the fab five and she is also Mickey Mouse's girlfriend. In television shows she can be seen in 'House of Mouse,' 'Have a Laugh!'

Finally she can be found in various merchandise such as calendars, pins, vinylmations, comic books, CDs, toys, and clothing.

She has lived in many different lands over the years such as Mickey's Toontown, Hollywood, Disney Castle, and Mouseton. Minnie has quite a few relatives which include her nieces Millie and Melody, her father Marcus, her uncle Mortimer, her grandma Matilda, her cousin Ruffhouse, and her grandpa Marshall.

Her enemies include The Phantom Blot, Pete, Mortimer Mouse, Sylvester Shyster, and the rest of the Disney villains.

Minnie has worn countless outfits over the years, but her most common outfit is her dresses that vary in colors and have white polka dots on them, a bow in her hair, and high heels which vary in color for every outfit she wears. She has a wonderful heart and she is smart, happy, outgoing and very friendly.

*FUN FACT* Minnie's real name is Minerva Mouse.

Darkwing Duck
Darkwing Duck is the main character in the old school Disney Channel show: Darkwing Duck. He is from the town of Saint Canard, and his true identity is Drake Mallard. He is a crime fighter, and fights the likes of Megavolt, Dr. Reginald Bushroot, The Liquidator, Quackerjack, Negaduck, Tuskernini, Taurus Bulba, Professor Moliarty, and Splatter Phoenix.
Drake Mallard has a 9 year old adopted daughter named Gosalyn, and they live next door to the very strange Muddlefoots family. Darkwing Duck has a sidekick, a wonderful character who we talked about on the first Who's Who Wednesday, named Launchpad McQuack.
Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard have a very simple wardrobe. Drake Mallard almost always wears a pink long sleeve shirt with a green sweater vest with a sort of argyle look to it. Darkwing Duck on the other hand has a very dark hero look to him; he wears a blue turtleneck with a purple jacket over it and a purple cape, with a really sweet looking purple crime fighting hat.
Darkwing Duck has a classic quote that he also says when arriving to apprehend a criminal, and that is 'I am the terror that flaps in the night' and then he adds a different line to it every time, some of my favorites are 'I am the termite that devours your floorboards," 'I am the raspberry seed you can't floss out,' 'I am the itch you cannot reach,' 'I am the hairball the clogs your drains,' 'I am the smoke that smokes smoked oysters,' 'I am the ten dollar service charge on all returned checks,' and ' I am the low ratings that cancel your program.'
Darkwing Duck/Drake Mallard are voiced by Jim Cummings who has voiced in television shows and movies such as 101 Dalmatians, Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears, Aladdin, The book of Pooh, Bonkers, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Ducktales, Gargoyles, Goof Troop, House of Mouse, Tarzan, The Little Mermaid, Marsupilami, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, The new adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Quack Pack, and Talespin. While movies were Aladdin 2 and 3, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Brother Bear 2, The Fox and the Hound 2, A Goofy Movie, Hercules, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Jungle Book 2, Lady and the Tramp 2, The Lion King, The Lion King 2, The Lion King 1 1/2, The Little Mermaid 3, various Mickey Christmas movies, Mulan, various Pooh movies, Pocahontas 1 and 2, The Princess and the Frog, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure. To say the least he is a Disney Legend.
Darkwing Duck has been retired as a meet and greet character but can be seen of very rare special occasions, hopefully with the comic book series taking off again by Boom Studios, we will see more of Darkwing Duck in the future.

Dumbo

It's From Screen To Theme Cruise Week, and this week we are going to be talking about the character on the back of the Disney Fantasy: Dumbo! Dumbo is the fantastic lead character in Walt Disney's 1941 film 'Dumbo.' In films he can be found in 'Dumbo,' and 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse.' In addition to that, he has cameos in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit,' 'The Great Mouse Detective,' and 'The Lion King 1 '.' In television, he can be found in 'House of Mouse,' 'Mickey Mouse Club,' and 'Dumbo's Circus.' He can also be found in the Kingdom Hearts series, Mickey Mousecapade, Kinect Disneyland Adventures, and Disney's Villains Revenge. Finally he can be found in other merchandise such as toys, clothing, books, pins, and many other things.

Dumbo lives at the Circus with his mother Mrs. Jumbo. The story of Dumbo is extremely sad. Everyone, humans and elephants, make fun of Dumbo because of his big ears. I could really relate to this movie when I was little because I was teased for having large ears. Dumbo has wonderful friends that help him including Timothy Mouse, Casey Jr., Mr. Stork, and the Crows. His enemies include the evil Ringmaster and The Pink Elephants in his hallucinations.

He is a baby elephant with massive ears. He wears a red and yellow collar sash and a yellow hat. Also in order to fly he holds a black feather with his trunk. He is extremely shy, but trustworthy and friendly once he opens up.

*FUN FACT* Dumbo is the only main character in any Disney film that doesn't speak.

He was animated by Vladimir Tytla. Also in Dumbo's Circus he was voiced by Katie Leigh. I highly recommend buying the Dumbo 70th Anniversary DVD Bluray that was recently released. It has some amazing special features on the DVD.

Dumbo can be found in Disney parks around the world. He can be seen in Fantasmic!, Flights of Fantasy Parade, Main Street Electrical Parade, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant, which will become Dueling Dumbo's with an interactive queue after the Fantasyland Expansion is complete at Walt Disney World. Finally Dumbo will have tie ins on the new Disney Fantasy cruise ship: he will be seen on the back of the ship with Timothy Mouse.

The Hatbox Ghost

Hatbox Ghost

The Hatbox Ghost is one of the rarest, yet most iconic and popular, characters in any Disney park. I heard some rumors that in the 'Haunted Mansion' film starring Eddie Murphy there are references that can be found in the film of The Hatbox Ghost but I have yet to find any. In 2010 at Comic Con, director Guillermo del Toro announced he would be making a new Haunted Mansion film, which The Hatbox Ghost would play a large role in the film. No release date has been given yet. He can be found in the television show 'House of Mouse.' In other merchandise he can be found in toys, clothing, Disney art, vinylmations, books, and pins.

He makes his home at The Haunted Mansion, with the rest of the 998 happy haunts. It isn't really known if he is a tortured soul, or a happy haunt. A lot of people believe he is one of the beheaded husbands of Constance Hatchaway. It also isn't known if he has any enemies besides 'Captain Gracey' in the comics, but maybe after the Guillermo del Toro film it will shed some light on the backstory of this wonderful character.

Hatbox Ghost

*FUN FACT* He can also be found in one of my favorite Disney albums, The Story and Song From The Haunted Mansion. The narrator says 'Another ghostly manifestation appeared and blocked their way. He was a cloaked figure with an evil grinning face; a hat box hung from his hand. With each beat of his bride's heart, his head disappeared from his body and appeared in the hat box.'

The Hatbox Ghost's outfit consists of pants, jacket, shoes, overcoat, top hat, a hat box, and a cane. He has beady eyeballs, shoulder length hair, and a skeleton body.

Hatbox Ghost

He was created by Marc Davis, Yale Gracey, and Blaine Gibson.

*FUN FACT* SIG comics released a 7 part Haunted Mansion comic between 2005 and 2007. In the story The Hatbox Ghost goes by the name Randall Pace and gets beheaded by Captain Gracey. It is almost impossible to find the full set of these comics now. It will be interesting to see if he will be featured in the new Marvel Haunted Mansion comic being released in March.

Hatbox Ghost

The Hatbox Ghost can be found at Disneyland in the Haunted Mansion attraction, and also during Haunted Mansion Holiday. I can see Disney bringing this character in more things in the future due to his popularity and with him having a large role in the upcoming 'Haunted Mansion' film.

Humphrey the Bear

Humphrey is a large overweight bear that has brown fear, large black eyebrows, black claws, a black nose, and black eyes. He is very funny, mischievous, and nervous. He first appeared in the 1950 short, 'Hold That Pose.'

*FUN FACT* Humphrey the Bear had a heart shaped nose in four television shows which were 'Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,' 'Minnie's Bow-Toons,' 'Mickey Mouse Works,' and 'House of Mouse.'

He was created by Walt Disney himself. He has been voiced by a few people over the years such as James MacDonald, Frank Welker, and Jim Cummings.

Moana

Moana

Moana is the main character in the Walt Disney animated hit film, 'Moana' which was just released on DVD last week. She can be found in the animated short 'Gone Fishing.' In video games she can be found in Moana: Island Life, Disney Emoji Blitz, Kingdom Hearts Unchained X, Disney Crossy Road, and Moana: Rhythm Run. In other merchandise she can be found in toys, Disney art, games, books, Funko pop figures, and clothing. I am sure she will be getting her own vinylmation figure in the near future as well.

She lives on the island of Motunui with her mother, father, and her recently deceased grandmother. She is the new Chief of her people. Her friends she can count on in times of need are Maui, Heihei, Mini Maui, Tui, Pua, Te Fiti, Sina, Tala, the people of her village, and the ocean. Her enemies include Tamatoa, Te Ka, the rest of the inhabitants of Lalotai (Realm of Monsters), and Kakamora.

Moana

Moana is a Polynesian teenage girl. She has brown eyes, black eyebrows, and long thick wavy black hair. Her outfit consists of reddish/pink floral tube top, a cream colored skirt, a reddish/pink sash around her waste, and a brown necklace with a blue gem that holds the heart of Te Fiti. She is very adventurous, brave, and she has an amazing heart!

She was designed by Nick Orsi, Bill Scwhab, Minkyu Lee, Randy Haycock, and Jin Kim. Her animators include Hyrum Osmand, Malcom Pierce, Allen Ostergar lV, Svetla Radivoeva, and Trent Correy. In the film she is voiced by Louise Bush when she was a toddler and Auli'i Cravalho in the rest of the film.

Moana

Moana can be found as a meet and greet character in Disney parks around the world. She can also be seen in two upcoming shows. First in 2017 she can be seen in Happily Ever After, which is replacing Wishes at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World on May 12, 2017. She can also be found across the see at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2018 in the upcoming show, Moana's Village Festival. With the popularity of 'Moana' I wouldn't be surprised to see more shows or even a attraction based on the film in the coming future. Finally if you haven't seen 'Moana' yet, go see it! Such a beautifully done film with a great story, and amazing artwork.

 

I want to make my weekly bios interactive for all of you, so each week I ask you all to email me at disneyfan19@aim.com to let me know which character you want to see and want to know more about.
