Esmeralda’s Trivia!

Test Your Knowledge of Disney Trivia!

Introducing the prophet of wisdom, the knower of all things and Disney trivia expert – Esmeralda!

This Week’s Question: He starred in a series of How To shorts, most recently in How To Hook Up Your Home Theater. Who is he?

Know the answer?

Send your answer to contact@myvmk.com. Be sure to provide your MyVMK username in the email with the answer. From the correct answers submitted, we randomly select three players as the winners and send them a Esmeralda Trivia Pin! You have until Thursday, February 5th, to send your answers in.

Here’s the answer to last week’s question: This toony Disney classic set in 1947 Los Angeles, inspired both an in-Park attraction and a land. Name the film and its cartoon star.

Answer: Who Framed Roger Rabbit starred who else, Roger Rabbit.

Did you know: Who Framed Roger Rabbit stars Bob Hoskins, who plays P.I. Eddie Valiant. Valiant is a detective hired to help clear Roger Rabbit’s
name after the Toon is accused of a serious crime. The film placed
"Toons" in the real world, side by side with everyday people. This was
all done without the use of computers or digital animation.

Long before Who Framed Roger Rabbit Walt Disney mixed live action with animation in films like Mary Poppins. Walt started experimenting with the technique by producing the Alice Comedies in the 1920’s. These series of animated cartoons placed a live action girl named Alice in an animated world. These shorts are available on the Walt Disney Treasures sets. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!
