The Muppet Movie is moving right along to Blu-ray! That's right, the ORIGINAL classic film will be released on August 13, 2013! Sure, it's been on DVD, but so many of us have been thinking, "I hope that something better comes along!" And by the way the film is filled with so many great songs, composed by Paul Williams and Kenny Ascher, including "I Hope That Something Better Comes Along," "Rainbow Connection" and "Movin' Right Along."
And here's some Muppet Movie trivia for you... the film was directed by James Frawley, who was the main director in the Monkees television series and has been directing for more than four decades, most recently on ABC's Grey's Anatomy. Watch for James Frawley in The Muppet Movie as a waiter in the El Sleazo Cafe!

Celebrating the birthday of Jay Meyer, who was such a wonderful person! He would have been 90 today. Besides singing in numerous movies and television shows, you've seen him as one of the singing statues in the Haunted Mansion. Jay also appeared in Disneyland's Golden Horseshoe Revue for 14 years! In this photo, he's seen with Betty Taylor in the 1976 "centennial" version of the Revue.

Did you know that Disneyland Paris has a really keen '50s diner that pays tribute to Annette Funicello? Here's some great photos, thanks to Mouse Clubhouse friend Carla Bolonotto!
Carla's favorite meal is the Eurochick sandwich. I was surprised at the name, thinking it was referring to a girl from Europe, although the slang term for women as "chicks" was more acceptable in the '50s, I was glad to know the "chick" refers to chicken! Of course!
At Annette's there are U.S. classics such as the Rock n' Roll Burger and the All-American Hot Dog, and I don't know what entree I'd get but I'd certainly order some Fried Camembert ("Camembert fritters with Annette's sauce"). To drink? You can go for Citronade, which is "old fashioned lemonade," or just relax with a nice glass of wine.
Oh! And if you finish Annette's Mega Incredible Burger, that's 600 grams of beef (that's about 1.3 pounds!), you'll get a free vanilla or chocolate frappè!
