    The Brave little Toaster is there including the followup: the Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars.

    Unfortunately I can't find the greatest animated short of all time: Willy the Operatic Whale.

    I know you guys are joking, but I'm a big fan of The Cat from Outer Space.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Sorry Lebowski kids. You win some, you lose some.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Y'all quit bagging on the old Disney stuff. If I got Disney + I would legit spend days binging on all the old cartoons, Darby O'Gill and the Little People, Escape from Witch Mountain, the Apple Dumpling Gang, etc. etc.

    I have a VHS copy of it. The VHS also includes Lambert the Sheepish Lion (not on Disney+) and Ferdinand the Bull (on Disney+).

    All great animated shorts, but you can't top Willy!

    Lol. I have a good bootleg of that if you want. I think Disney finds the crows in Dumbo to be problematic enough...

    lol popcorn's on me. But the streaming service is objectively pretty great so far. The Mandalorian is worth the year's subscription alone. If you don't like Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars content enough to pay $7 bucks a month, well then don't. But none of that stuff is ever going to be on another streaming service again. And the originals that are coming out (the additional Star Wars and Marvel standalone series) are going to give subscribers what they want. This is just the beginning-- new high quality content will be coming pretty regularly. And all of it is family-friendly. Your kids can go nuts on Disney+ in a way they would never be allowed on HBO or Netflix. Not seeing the 'deuce' properties you are picking up.

    So we got a free year of it via Verizon. While I haven't started my binge watching yet, I can confirm that they have 'Witch Mountain' (both!), 'Shaggy DA', and 'Apple Dumpling Gang' (both!). Sadly, they do not have the original 'Flubber', just the Robin Williams remake. That's pretty unforgivable.

    Hulu live just increased rates by 10 bucks. Streaming is going to be as expensive as cable at some point.

    FTR, I am happy with the service overall. The price is right and I share the account with my adult kids (4 streams, 7 profiles allowed). They had a lot of glitches on the rollout but nothing that can't be easily fixed.

    Here is one of many many articles noting the poor launch.

    https://gizmodo.com/disney-is-embarrassing-1839836190

    As the Dude points out, these are issues that they can certainly fix, but the service entered the scene with a pretty poor roll out. The nice thing for Disney is that they have so loyal a consumer base that people will stick with it and they are laughing all the way to the Bank while they sort out their issues.

    Eh, brand new massive online services always have hiccups at launch.

    My 15-year-old is saying we need it so he can watch High School Musical: The Musical Series (or whatever it's called). They hooked him with the teaser first episode on broadcast TV. Not sure why he's been on a High School Musical kick lately, but I'm guessing it has to do with a girl.

    Yeah, let's go with that.

    Don’t worry, Pelado. My son has watched HSM and the sequels. Mostly because his sisters watched them but he could still sing the lyrics. He’s not gay. I think.

    If there is a Disney title that you want to see on there, that isn't currently on there, they will take an e-mail and make it available. I read that somewhere yesterday.

    They will not make "Song of the South" available regardless of how many e-mails that they get.

    Looks like that black Friday deal is happening:

    When I quit Comcast I joined Frontier. Frontier's deal included a $100 cash card after 90 days of service, to offset the upfront installation charges. I got the $100 cash card this past week and determined that I was going to spend it on some new shoes, and as Black Friday is coming up - I thought I'd use the $100 from my cable cutting escapade to pay for them.

    The above is a true story - and I'm pleased that your accountant penchant for balancing the credits and debits of life, and various threads, needs to be satisfied. I hope I passed your surprise audit. Sign off below, making it official.
