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: 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.

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, January 29th, to send your answers in.

Here’s the answer to last week’s question: The animated movie Alice in Wonderland wasn’t the first time Walt Disney explored the Alice in Wonderland story, Walt also did a version with Mickey Mouse. What was the name of the cartoon starring Mickey?

Answer: Thru the Mirror (1936)

Did you know: In the classic Mickey Mouse short, Thru the Mirror, (which is available on the Walt Disney Treasures Mickey Mouse in Living ColorMickey falls asleep while reading “Alice in Wonderland”, and dreams of entering the strange world of Wonderland through the looking-glass. While there are several similarities between the classic cartoons, Mickey’s short was more humorous (in keeping with Mickey’s slapstick style that other shorts of the 30’s also had) than the full-length Alice film. In addition to appearing on the Walt Disney Treasures set, the short is also included as an extra on some DVD releases of Alice in Wonderland.

As he did in many early Mickey shorts, Walt Disney provides the voice for Mickey in Thru the Mirror. Congratulations to the 3 lucky (and randomly picked) players that sent in the correct answer for last week’s question!

Winners:

KrazyBella
Tohrukun
Cat
