Yoo Hoo, Gang!

My favorite Disney character did something this past year that Disney heros almost never do: he died. :sad:

Ward Kimball qualified as a character in so many ways, even to appearing in a Mickey Mouse cartoon as himself (The Nifty Ninties).

Known best for his animation of such characters as Jiminy Crickey, Casey Jr., and the Cheshire Cat, Ward's wacky style was possibly the least "Disney" and most "Warner Brothers" of the Nine Old Men.

Honored with Academy Awards for the innovative "Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom" and the instructive "It's Tough to Be a Bird," Ward went on to produce and direct shorts and episodes of the "Disneyland" TV show. His three pivotal episodes on "Man in Space" served as the catalyst for the American space program, with President Eisenhauer ordering copies to be shown to government officials at the White House.

Possibly one of the biggest influences on Disney parks came from Ward's travel to the Chicago Railroad Fair with Walt. Infecting his boss with his love of trains on this trip, Ward inspired and encouraged Walt's backyard railroad -- the direct predecessor to the Disneyland RR and the WDW RR where I'm now a conductor.

Ward left behind a huge collection of trains, both miniature and full size, in the competent hands of the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, CA; a number of jazz recordings by the "Firehouse Five Plus Two" band he helped organize from Studio artists; and a long streak of irreverant and sassy humor that brightened park attractions from Mr. Toad to the World of Motion.

Also some very appreciative -- if sad -- fans like me. :unhappy:

Well my favourite character changes on the mood I'm in! Now that may sound terribly fickle to all of you who remain loyal to your special character - but I choose to look at it this way: they are all so great that I just can't decide!


Me, Goofy & Helen - Disneyland Paris Nov. 2002

I love having my piccie taken with Goofy, cos he's so silly! And it was way cool meeting Sully from Monsters Inc, he hugged me and because he's so big, I felt like *I* was a teddy bear!


Sully and me - Nov. 2002

Ariel's great because she's naughty but loyal, kind but funny and quite pretty. Cindy's so gentile and softly-spoken, Belle's okay but nothing that unusual.. Tink's hysterical when she gets angry but a bit too selfish.

Tigger's so lovable, and Pooh really does make me laugh - for a bear of very little brain.

If I really had to choose, really really had to, then I'd say Goofy. He's the one I'd miss most if he became extinct. :cheesy:

My favorite character would easily be Gadget Hackwrench, the mouse inventor from "Chip n Dale's Rescue Rangers."  Beautiful, yes, but her personal qualities set her apart.  A genius inventor, she has just the right dash of eccentricity to make her endearing.  She is usually caught up in her inventions, but sometimes shows flashes of being lonely, which has a profound effect on all her male fans.  She is a toon of great emotional complexity - normally sweet-tempered, she can be a little buzz-saw when defending her friends or standing up to the bad guys.  She radiates an aura of nurturing spirit and innocence.  She is generous, laughs easily, and in all ways is a person you would want to be around - even if her inventions do fail occasionally (though she is successful more often than not - usually her failures are due to her eagerness to see her ideas up and running or the limitations of the human junk she is forced to employ for parts).  For me, she is definitely a Disney "princess"!

Definitely Goofy!!  I love Goofy!  Of course, I love almost all Disney characters, but Goofy will always be my favorite!  Boo from Monster's Inc is another favorite.

Maleficent. Hands down. She was drawn in a unique style making her scary as sin and beautiful at the same time, she actually looked frightening (kind of rare in Disney Movies), and she didn't even pretend to be good. She was admitedly evil incarnate and was proud of it. She has the greatest voice actress of all Disneydom (in my opinion), Eleanor Audley, thus making her very easy to listen to with her chilling speeches. She had an entire mountain, an army of goblins, some kickin' green flame effects, and a pet raven (named Diablo for those who don't know. ^_^). All because of that, I chose my name, to show that I really am "Her Pet". ^_^

Yoo Hoo, Cindy!

I've got to agree with you on your choice of those mice as faves! :)

And thanks so much for sharing that picture -- your smile is just as perfect as Minnie and Mickey's!
