SGT is updated with our new software and an all new look! Let us know if you have any issues!

Official SGT ADD thread

A place to be entertained. Videos, jokes, games, and more.
Forum rules
At the old Disney Hyperion Studio, the screening room where animators would show animated scenes to Walt for his approval was small, with no ventilation or AC. Not only was it hot, but the animators were nervously awaiting Walt's reaction to their work. Thus, the room became known as the Sweatbox. Even after the Studio moved to Burbank and elegant screening rooms were offered to the staff, the moniker remained.

Now SGT has a sweatbox of our own. This is the place to find and post all entertaining topics such as video links, jokes, games, and the like. A general rule of thumb is that if the thread is meant to be informative (interesting news stories for example), or a topic for discussion (like setting up a park meet) then it should go in the Break Room, but if the intent is to entertain the masses then it's home is The Sweatbox. I'm sure there will be grey areas at times, so if you have doubt as to where a new thread should go, just use your best judgement and the SGT Staff will be glad to move it later if you guessed wrong.

They are remaking films in general because the can be confident of making a certain amount of money from a known property. Hollywood is terrified of new ideas.

I expect that most of the voice actors will be changed for a variety of reasons.

Earlier I asked if any of the original Mouseketeers are still alive. I found a site that answers that question, as well as any other concerning celebrities. Not surprisingly, it's called www.whosaliveandwhosdead.com . Of the Mouseketeers who were in all four seasons of The Mickey Mouse Club, here's the list:
Jimmy Dodd, dead
Roy Williams, dead
Bobby Burgess, alive
Annette Funicello, dead
Darlene Gillespie, alive
Cubby O'Brien, alive
Karen Pendleton, alive
Doreen Tracy, alive

The site has the full list in a table, giving birth dates, when the individual appeared, death date where applicable, and if they did anything else, or other special notes--like Mickey Rooney Jr. and his brother getting fired after one season for getting into mischief in the Disney paint department, or Paul Petersen--later of The Donna Reed Show-- getting fired for punching a casting director.

Don't be fooled by appearances. In Hawaii, some of the most powerful people look like bums and stuntmen.

So, now that Hurricane Irma is a post-tropical cyclone, how are our SGTers in FL doing? I have a cousin in Micanopy who decided to ride out the storm at home, and an aunt in Oakland Park, but I don't know if she rode it out or evacuated. I see where DW had relatively minor damage.

I rode the storm out aboard a cruise ship in the Arctic. Word from my cat-sitter is that there was only minor damage, and all at Chez Zazu is in good order.

Except for my cats, who are pissed, but they get angry when I go out for the mail.

Smart move. My Tripod was pretty chill--most cats can't stand fireworks, for example, but Fourth of July and New Year's didn't bother her. Halloween, on the other hand, was what freaked her out with all the strangers coming to the door. I kept her in the bedroom. She also didn't like vacuum cleaners.

At the shelter I live at, they moved the pets--except one dog and its owner--to the pet owner's area, and I have a problem going over there to visit Nimitz, the cat. There's a few other cats, but mostly dogs. Twice somebody there ratted on me and had me leave. I understand about allergies, but Nimitz and his owners--husband's in a nursing home with a broken hip--were formerly in the handicap area, right next to the eating area, and he had people coming up to him and petting him, playing with him, and occaisonally trying to slip bits of human food to him, despite "Please do not feed Nimitz the cat" signs. People should be allowed to visit their favorite four-legged friends. Nimitz misses his public.
