🎄 It’s 1997, and Tim Curry as an evil pipe organ is literally bringing down the house.
Join us as we journey into the depths of Disney’s direct-to-video library for an unnecessary but charming midquel that explains why the Beast hates Christmas and raises even more questions about the curse on his castle.
💬 Topics & Tangents:
3. Kathie Lee Gifford sang the soundtrack for “Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin.”
4. Behind “Prince Adam,” the Beast’s real name Disney never made official but keeps occasionally using.
6. How tall is the Beast’s castle compared to the real world’s tallest castle?
7. Disney can’t keep the Feather Duster’s name straight, either.
8. The West Wing at Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom.
9. The terrifying air conditioner in “The Brave Little Toaster.”
10. The loudest organ ever built.
11. Belle wears her dress from this special during Christmastime at Disney parks.
