Do you decorate your house for Christmas with Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters? Are you over the top (and do you have a Mickey tree topper?)
If so, the Mickey Mouse Christmas House in Marin, California, is something you will be interested in.
The house is located at 417 Blackstone Drive in San Rafael and through New Years Eve is lit up every night between six and ten at night. More than ten thousand people come each year to see this amazing display. Decorating begins by the Mize family in October because there is so much to do and put up. The Mize’s first began creating their Mickey Mouse house more than three decades ago. Their garage is filled to the top with items featuring Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters to decorate their house each year. Overall, it takes about one thousand total man hours to complete the decorating.
The Mickey Mouse Christmas House is so impressive it is part of this years “The Great Christmas Light Fight” which is showing on ABC Television. People are competing for who has the biggest, and perhaps gaudiest, Christmas display.
The Griswalds would have loved this!
This year as part of the festivities the Mize family is helping the Kelly’s Wishes Foundation by hosting a fundraiser at the house. The Kelly’s Wishes Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to helping those in Marin. It is named after cancer claimed Kelly Case Moulton in 2007.
Walt Disney may no longer be with us, and it has been over a half a century since he voiced Mickey Mouse, but that has not stopped the Walt Disney Company from creating a new Mickey Mouse cartoon using Walt’s voice.
In the newly released “Get a Horse!” technicians used snippets of Walt’s audio voicing Mickey Mouse between 1928 and 1947, and rearranged them to create a new story. The new story then runs the gamut from the old back and white films to new 3D effects.
Word by word they used and rearranged various snippets to make it sound like Walt was voicing over a new animated film made in 2013.
You can decide how successful this “reanimation” technique has been by checking out this video clip from “Get a Horse!”:
The length of the full animation is about seven minutes. It is being shown in movie theatres before the regular Disney movie Frozen starts. Some have said it is so wonderful it should be considered for an Oscar.
The Get a Horse! short was first seen at France’s Annecy International Animation Festival this past June. It received a nice response from both audiences and critics.
This interesting new app for the iPhone lets kids help make a Mickey Mouse cartoon. There are a number of objects that can appear in the cartoon. What you do is draw the objects and then watch them appear in the cartoon. You can have Mickey and Donald switch clothes, or have Mickey hide behind things you have made. It is really silly and definitely for the younger crowed. At first it might seem a little pricey for what it does at $4, but the kids really love it and can play for hours.
The app has been receiving top five star reviews from parents who say their kids love it (and they love it too).
An Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later. The best results this app has been optimized for the iPhone 5.
The Mickey Mouse mash-up app is available on iTunes for purchase and immediate download.
