Broadway Related/TV Bootlegs:
Captain EO (1986) A 3D film Starring Michael Jackson, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and written by George Lucas. Written for Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Epcot (It was recently just added back into the parks after being replaced in the 90’s) Captain Eo and his rugged crew set out on a mission to deliver a special gift to a wicked queen who lives on a dark, desolate world. Getting there is half the fun, especially when the good captain starts boogying and the special effects start flying. Also includes a behind the scenes special, hosted by Whoopi Goldberg. ***
"Disneyland Showtime" (1970) Part of “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color”. E.J. Peaker and The Osmond Brothers come to Disneyland to perform at a show being held there. But Donny and Jay Osmond go off to explore the park. Worried that they will miss the performance, the rest of the cast go to try and retrieve them before it is too late. They also visit the then-newest Disneyland attraction at the time, the Haunted Mansion. ***
Laughter on the 23rd Floor (2001) Based on Neil Simon’s play, starring original Broadway cast, members Nathan Lane & Mark Linn-Baker Also starring: Victor Garber, Dan Castellaneta, Sal Rubinek and Richard Portnow. One of my favorites. Nathan Lane at his best.
Little Mermaid’s Island (1990) This is an EXTREMELY RARE DVD on an unfinished Jim Henson Project for Disney. The pilot was shot approximately two months before Jim Henson passed away. While the post-production and special effects were completed and the completed production delivered to Disney in the Fall of 1990, complications arose with the negotiations with the Henson family after Jim Henson’s untimely death. When the proposed acquisition of the Henson Company by Disney fell apart, this charming project also disappeared. Starring the original voices of Samuel E. Wright (Sebastian) and Buddy Hackett (Scuttle). An unknown young actress is Ariel and Clive Revill is a new variation of Grimsby (Instead of being a butler, he’s a sea captan). Also, Jim Cummings plays the voice of a new dragon character, Scales. A MUST HAVE!!! ***
The Muppets at Walt Disney World (1990) One of Jim Henson’s last projects. A must have for any Disney/Muppet fan! Starring The Muppets, Charles Grodin and Raven Symone. ***
The Jim Henson Company’s Puppet Up! Uncensored (2006) This aired on TBS. Easiest way to describe it: “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” done with Muppets. Hilarious and a must for any Muppet fan!
The Star Wars Holiday Special(1978) The infamous holiday special. Starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, James Earl Jones and the entire original cast. Also starring Bea Arthur, Harvey Coreman, Art Carney and Diahann Carroll. Known for being so bad, George Lucas wants to see every copy destroyed. Very bizarre and just great for any Star Wars fan!
