The Brothers Grimm

Once upon a time, there were two brothers who were real people who actually existed. While this might not come as a shock to some of you, it was definitely news to us. This week, we take a look at the lives of the men who collected stories from all across Germany (and France) and put them into a book that has since been the opening shot of about 75% of animated movies.

The Haunted Mansion

Bet you didn't think we could do an hour on a theme park ride, did you? Well, we did, and it's a haunting tale of creative clashes, indecision, a World's Fair, and, eventually, some ghosts.

Mini: What's Cooler than Ecto Cooler?
