We Need To Make This Steamboat Willie LEGO Set A Reality

As classic Disney fans, we’re obsessed with all things Steamboat Willie—which is why we’re loving the latest LEGO Ideas submission.

If you aren’t familiar with LEGO Ideas, it’s a program that lets fans of the building blocks pitch their own design to the company. A model needs to be created, photographed, and submitted—alongside a convincing proposal as to why the set should become an official LEGO product.

Sounds cool, right? What’s even more exciting is that one of the latest proposals is inspired by the beloved Mickey short. The creator of this set argued his (convincing) case:

“Steamboat Willie is the first fully synchronized sound cartoon directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. It was the debut of Mickey Mouse in a cartoon, the first to be distributed and the third to be produced,” he says. “So as an animator and a LEGO fan I’d like to pay my respect to that marvelous production, which…inspired a lot of talented artists.”

Can’t argue with that!

This set, which will include 156 bricks, needs to receive 10,000 votes before it has the chance to be reviewed by the company and approved as a new LEGO set. As of this post, the set has received 6,000 votes. With over 160 more days to go, we’re sure with the help of both Disney and LEGO fans, we can make this set a reality.

Just visit LEGO Ideas and vote for this brilliant creation!

Showtime Releases Our Cartoon President Trailer

Showtime has released the official trailer for the new animated series Our Cartoon President, executive produced by multiple Emmy winner Stephen Colbert, Chris Licht (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and showrunner R.J. Fried.

The half-hour parody series, debuting on Sunday, February 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, follows the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members. Showtime will give viewers an early preview of the series, making the first episode of Our Cartoon President available across multiple platforms online and On Demand on Sunday, January 28.

The new 10-episode parody Our Cartoon President examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and his most important relationships, and no one is safe – from his close family and confidants to key political figures from both parties and members of the media. In this parallel cartoon universe, the Commander-in-Chief opens the White House doors for an “all access” look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States.

McDonald’s Is Bringing Szechuan Sauce Back For One Day And Here’s How You Can Get It 

McDonald’s announced that it will make Szechuan Sauce available at certain restaurants on October 7, 2017 following an outpouring of demand from fans and a certain cartoon…In the season three premiere of Rick and Morty, Rick ranted about the condiment.

“That’s my one-armed man. I’m not driven by avenging my dead family Morty, that was FAKE! I’m driven by finding that, McNugget Sauce,” he says in the episode. “I want that Mulan McNugget Sauce, Morty. That’s my series arc Morty! If it takes nine seasons, I want my McNugget dipping Szechuan Sauce, Morty!”

In July, McDonald’s sent the show creator Justin Roiland a 64-ounce jug of the sauce, which debuted in the summer of 1998 as a promotion for “Mulan.”

But how can you get your hands on Szechuan Sauce?  Read below from McDonalds:

“We’re giving away 1,000 limited-edition, hand numbered, screen-printed posters for all 10 sauces in our legendary lineup—including Szechuan Sauce. That’s right, collectible art, worthy of the pop-culture status fans have given their favorite sauces.

In addition, after nearly 20 years (and perhaps a bit of time travel) we’re even doing the impossible…

On Oct 7, together with the collectible sauce-themed posters, we’re also giving away a one-time only, limited-edition, run of Szechuan Sauce in select restaurants. And when we say limited, we mean really, really limited!

Want a chance to get your hands on some of this sweet (and sour, and savory, and tangy, and spicy, and tart, and…) artwork? Find participating McD’s nearest you HERE.

DuckTales Sneak Peek From D23 Expo

DisneyXD debuted a DuckTales sneak peek at the D23 Expo today. The clip is from “Daytrip of Doom!” where Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby have an epic dart gun fight that ends up a little more intense than some of them are comfortable with.

The new animated comedy adventure DuckTales will premiere in a one-hour television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours, Saturday, August 12 (beginning at midnight EDT/PDT), on DisneyXD. Then, the series will debut with two new episodes Saturday, September 23 (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT). Each will also be available on the DisneyXD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates.

Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks’ comic designs, DuckTales chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.

The story unfolds as Donald Duck reluctantly takes Huey, Dewey and Louie to the home of their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge’s epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis.

The voice cast is David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (Community) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Louie, Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates) as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley and Tony Anselmo (Mickey Mouse) as Donald Duck.

Recurring guest voices include Lin-Manuel Miranda (Broadway’s “Hamilton,” Disney’s Moana and Mary Poppins Returns) as Duckburg’s favorite hero Gizmoduck (his alias is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera), Allison Janney (The West Wing) as Scrooge’s old flame Goldie O’Gilt, Margo Martindale (The Americans) as the ruthless villain Ma Beagle, Paul F. Tompkins (Bajillion Dollar Propertie$) as lucky duck Gladstone Gander, Kimiko Glenn (Orange Is the New Black) as well-traveled teen Lena, Jim Rash (Community) as mad scientist Gyro Gearloose, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as tech billionaire Mark Beaks, Keith Ferguson (Gravity Falls) as Scrooge’s archenemy Flintheart Glomgold, Eric Bauza (Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man) as Beagle Boys and Corey Burton (Star Wars Rebels) as scientist Ludwig Von Drake.
