Joining previously released Captain Jack Sparrow (Open Edition) and Captain Barbossa (2007 Winter Premiere Event Numbered Limited Edition of 2,500) are Elizabeth Swann (Numbered Limited Edition of 1,000) and Will Turner and an Opening Title (both Open Edition).
Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa were sculpted by Tim Bruckner. Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner were sculpted by Joel Harlow.
As with the previous releases from this series, Goofy ("One-Man Band") a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,000 was sculpted by Bruce Lau.
The opening theme, "The Mickey Mouse March", was written by the show's primary adult host, Jimmie Dodd. It was also reprised at the end of each episode, with the slower "Now it's time to say goodbye" verse. A shorter version of the opening title was used later in the series, in syndication and on Disney Channel reruns. Dodd also wrote many other songs used in individual segments over the course of the series.
Although the show was filmed and broadcast in black and white, all of the animated segments - the opening theme, Mickey's introductions and farewells, the Jiminy Cricket shorts, etc. - were filmed in color. Below is the opening sequence (in color) courtesy of YouTube.com:

Some of our friends headed to Walt Disney World on Monday, while others headed to Disneyland on Wednesday. It's been a week of emails and phone calls keeping each other abreast of weather conditions, each parks progress on getting ready for Christmas and the anticipation of celebrating fun times :)
Bags are packed, car is loaded and we're heading out the door for the airport and hopefully no problems getting to the airport and/or flight delays once there. Looking forward to spending time with my family, meeting up with friends, trying a couple new restaurants and of course checking out WDCC product :) As always, I will have my laptop with me, so will be able to check in from time to time.
Last we were down during the holidays was 2005, so looking forward to seeing the park all decorated again. Given the weather we're having here, even the colder temps Orlando is experiencing is much better than winter coats, gloves and shoveling snow :)

When we think of Halloween in America, many traditions are associated with the holiday. The most common tradition is dressing in halloween costumes, which has European and Celtic roots. These cultures believed they could avoid being recognized by the ghosts that came out on the night of Samhain by wearing masks. They would also place bowls of food outside their homes to satisfy the ghosts and prevent them from entering the home, which could be where trick-or-treating originated. Other sources point to beggars in Ireland who made their rounds to homes of the rich to ask for money and food. They would threaten them with “evil spirits” if they did not give.
