    M-I-C, K-E-Y...

    Besides a big baseball fan, I'm also a big Disney fan. So I was super excited to find this on the MLB shop site.

    Apparently they are producing these statues for every team and placing them around SoCal for the All-Star Game (similar to the Flying Pigs Cincinnati had years ago).

    The 7 1/2" figurines of the statues are just $24.99. If you also like Disney stuff, they are selling a few shirts with Mickey and friends on them as well.

    I understand the connection of your two interests, but that statue, in particular is really, really ugly.

    No kidding, it's not even the Swiss Family Robinson Tree House anymore. It's now Tarzan's Tree House.

    Actually in Walt Disney World (Orlando) it is still Swiss Family, but Disneyland's (Anaheim) was converted to Tarzan. Both attractions are equally underwhelming.

    Interesting.

    I always liked it when I was a kid.

    I like Disney movies up through the mid 70's and then I think they got pretty bad for the most part.

    My mom did a couple of variety shows with Jimmy who went on to host the Mickey Mouse Club shows. Mom said the act was him and her and a chimpanzee. She said the chimp was a gentleman.

    Very cool. Thanks for posting.

    I am a Disney Nerd myself, we usually go a couple times a year.
