Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father''s Day to all the Dads who visit either the blog and/or website today.

The Walt Disney Classics Collection has released some significant sculptures over the year's depicting that special moment of a father and child.

One that has personal meaning for me is King Triton & Ariel ("Morning, Daddy!"), a 2004 Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) Gold Circle Exclusive sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons.

Also released were the following:

  • The recently retired Pinocchio & Geppetto ("A Father's Joy") released as both a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) with a gold-tipped feather in Pinocchio's cap and an Open Edition release with a yellow-tipped feather sculpted by Dusty Horner.
  • Pongo with Pepper & Penny ("Proud Pongo"), the first Disneyana release by the Walt Disney Classics Collection, a Numbered Limited Edition and then followed as an Open Edition release as well sculpted by Chris Peterson.
  • Mufasa & Simba ("Pals Forever"), first release in the Tribute Series, sculpted by Chuck Williams.

Thanks Don. Same to you. Happy Father's Day. I have all the pieces in the living room curio (along with the Mother's Day type ones and all the baby ones). They are great to look at.

Hope all fathers had a wonderful day as I had. Enjoy.
