In this episode: This week we're talking about one Heyzen's favorite places, the Rainbow Caverns and the Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland!

The Cavern Tune

As mentioned in the episode, the only music made for the Mine Train Thru Nature’s Wonderland was the piece by George Bruns that featured a woman’s choir and a theremin. Take a listen below and let us know if you think it’s “heavenly” or “spooky”.

Mickey’s Tribute

The new Mickey Mouse shorts have been great! There is one in particular though that is on Heyzen’s favorite list and it’s the tribute short to Nature’s Wonderland. Check it out below!

Not just for breakfast anymore

In more news coming from Funko, we will get a chance to own collectors edition cereal boxes featuring Ursula and Oogie Boogie! Check these out!

We finally have more info on availability! The new cereals will be exclusively sold at Spirit Halloween stores and Spencer’s. We still don’t know the flavor of each cereal other than that they are multi-grain cereal dyed dark purple for Ursula and green for Oogie Boogie. 

Each box will also contain a special pocket-sized pop figure of the characters and are currently available for online preorder at spirithalloween.com and will be officially shipped out on September 11, 2019.
