  • Win Tickets to See Disney Pipes and Pops at the El Capitan Theater January 15, 2011

    Update: Contest Now Closed

    Congratulations our four winners

    Arilvdc,
    maximmom, CastMember02 and XCLIPSE129



    We are giving away 4 pair of tickets to see a VERY special performance at the El Capitan Theater this Saturday - January 15, 2011 at 10am.

    The program titled, Disney Pipes And Pops!, is a music and film show built around the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe-organ.

    Acclaimed organist, Rob Richards, be playing along with talented pianist from Nashville named Alex Zsolt.

    The performance will screen the two original silent Mickey Mouse cartoons PLANE CRAZY and GALLOPING GAUCHO, which will be accompanied the old-fashioned way on the Wurlitzer.

    Plus, there will be a fabulous retrospective of Disney music from the 1920s to the "contemporary Disney classics"

    And to help get the excitement started, we are giving away two sets of tickets on January 12th and 2 more sets on January 13th. All you need to do to enter is answer the question we have posted below. But pay attention, because we'll change the question on Wednesday the 12th. You may enter once for each question asked (A total of two chances to win).
    Question To Answer by 10pm (Pacific Time) on Thursday (January 13, 2011):

    Steamboat Willie was the third Mickey Mouse cartoon to be produced, behind Plane Crazy (released six months earlier) and The Gallopin' Gaucho (produced earlier, but released later).

    While Steamboat Willie was not the first Mickey Mouse cartoon, it was a first in a very special way. How so?


    Answer:
    It was the first cartoon with a fully synchronized soundtrack.

    And here's the question and answer for the first question:
    Question To Answer by 10pm (Pacific Time) on Wednesday (January 12, 2011):
    Disney composer Oliver Wallace was a famous theatre organist and pioneered the use of the pipe organ to accompany silent films. Can you name the classic Disney animated film for which he was composer and won an Oscar?

    The answer (as I think ALL of you got) was "Dumbo"

                Dumbo!

                But I am a bit confused because Dumbo only won one Oscar, so why does the question say 2?

                  Disney composer Oliver Wallace was a famous theatre organist and pioneered the use of the pipe organ to accompany silent films. Can you name the classic Disney animated film for which he was composer and won two Oscars?
                  minor technicality... Dumbo only won 1 Academy Award. It was awarded to 2 individuals (Oliver and Frank) but it was in the same category (Original Music Score). So my "answer" would be Dumbo considering that was Oliver's only Oscar (4 nominations but only 1 "gold") but the followup would be "none" because he only won 1 Oscar!

                    He won an Oscar for Dumbo, but I agree with the two previous comments. He only won one Oscar; the other went to Frank Churchill.

                      You all are correct. The question should say "Won AN Oscar".
                      Still doesn't change the answer.

                      Carry on . . . .

                      There are over a hundred people reading this thread but only a handful of entries. Get in there and list your answer folks. You can't win if you don't enter!

                        The answer would be "Dumbo". The very film that when I was 2 years old, I stood on a rocking chair to try to reach for the VHS and I ended up falling and splitting my chin open! However, it's still one of my Disney favorites haha.
