  • Icons & Idols....what Disney Legends would u like to see at the Expo?

    So with the Expo coming up, who would you like to run into or see Disney bring outta the woodwork for the big event?

    Personally I'm hoping to run into Tony Baxter, it's been 4 years since I last seen him and got to speak with him. Trust when I say I'm gonna be keeping an eye out. I'd also like to see Joe Rhode, Eric Jacobson, Bruce Vaughn, Bob Gurr and maybe Alice Davis to name a few.

      Yeah, I'm curious if Tony Anselmo and Bill Farmer will be the inductees, since the pin for the Legends Ceremony is of Donald and Goofy accepting the statue.

        Oh how clever, I didn't think of that.

              Since he retired earlier this summer, it's time for Wing Chao to become a Disney Legend.

                  Well, it's already Thursday. The ceremony is three weeks from today.

                  Where's the announcement?

                      The Disney Legends ceremony is two weeks from today. According to Suzanne, Disney stated the list of inductees would be released last week. And this week is just about over.

                      OK, Disney, fess up.

                      Who's getting inducted this year?

                      Why haven't you released the names yet?

                        I think that the Legends will be, TONY ANSELMO, HARRY ARCHINAL, ESTELLE GETTY, BEATRICE ARTHUR, BETTY WHITE, and RUE McCLANAHAN,BILL FARMER, DON IWERKS, LEOTA TOOMBS THOMAS, ROBIN WILLIAMS.

                        But what do I know...

                          These are just rumors I picked up from a Twitter search, but here goes...
                          Bill Farmer, Leota Thomas, Robin Williams, Tony Anselmo, Don Iwerks, The Golden Girls - Estelle Getty, Betty White, Rue McClanahan, and Bea Arthur (posthumously).

                          It seems like too many for one ceremony.

                            I hear Nic Cage might also be at the Expo, just not being named a Legend...

                              I have to admit, I love the National Treasure movies. Would love to see him.
                              How good are your sources, Figgy999?

                                LaughingPlace.com is reporting that Disney have annouced the full line up for the 2009 Disney Legend Awards.


                                TONY ANSELMO, the voice of Donald Duck;
                                HARRY ARCHINAL, former president of Buena Vista International; beloved actresses
                                ESTELLE GETTY, BEATRICE ARTHUR, BETTY WHITE, and RUE McCLANAHAN, stars of The Golden Girls
                                BILL FARMER, the voice of Goofy
                                DON IWERKS, who created revolutionary film systems used in movies like Mary Poppins and in Disney theme park attractions;
                                LEOTA TOOMBS THOMAS, Imagineer, world-famous as the Haunted Mansions disembodied Madame Leota; and
                                ROBIN WILLIAMS, voice of the Genie in Aladdin and star this fall in Old Dogs from Walt Disney Pictures.


                                Sounds like a good line up to me, especially happy to see voice talents like Tony Anselmo and Bill Farmer be included. The work both have done over the years in providing the voices for both Donald Duck and Goofy is outstanding, both deserve to be honoured here. Also Robin Williams is already a legend in his own right, so its good to see Disney pay credit to his contributions.

                                While both Tony and Bill are in Anaheim picking up awards, how about an autograph session?

                                      Is this a joke? We are talking about Disney Legends. Maybe I'm missing the big obvious thing here. The Disney Legends website says "Since its inception, the program has honored many gifted animators, Imagineers, songwriters, actors and business leaders as having made a significant impact on the Disney legacy."

                                      The Golden Girls ran on ABC from 1985 to 1992. Disney did purchase ABC until 1996.

                                      How exactaly did the Golden Girls make a significant impact on the Disney legacy when the show was not a Disney show, not on a Disney network and that Disney just purchased after the end of the show.

                                      I do not mind if anyone gets a legends award from their work at ABC, but at it should be for actions during the period of when Disney owned ABC.

                                      Am I looking at this the wrong way? If we are going to give out legends awards for completed work that was purchased afterwards, give a legends award to Jim Henson for created the muppets since Disney bought that.

                                        The Golden Girls was produced by Disney and was their first television hit. It paved the way for Disney to become a force in television and to purchase ABC. While it might not be Disney branded, it was an important part of Disney company history,
