Yeah, he is right.  I actually miss the "Disney" movies that were full of singing and dancing and adventure and just outright silliness.  The movies were an escape from reality, not a constant reminder of it.

Not enough people have seen Cold Turkey.

I love this man, but I don't want everything to go back to happy feely movies though. Doesn't change how farking awesome Dick Van Dyke is.

Dick van Dyke stared 2016 down and won.

He would have had a different career if he's kept his original name: Penis Von Lesbian

What I miss more than anything from Disney are the movies that they used to make and air on The Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday nights. Specifically the movies that followed a certain animal (my favorite was the one with the mountain lion) around on its adventures and had that great narrator, I think it was Winston Hibbler.

Nowadays everything has to be a depressing documentary filmed in real time in shades of orange and blue to make the Sperglords happy.

Was it the guy from old cowboy movies? I've never figured out who had the folksy voice "ole mama bear doesn't know that her cubs are gettin' into some mischief."

Yeah, this from the guy who starred in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, a movie only slightly less scaring to children than Faces of Death.

Yeah I miss those cartoons where little girls are kidnapped and threatened with death, puppies are almost murdered for their fur, witches with apples kill their stepdaughters. Ah, nostalgia.

Agreed, every Harry Potter was too god damn scary and violent.  Also somewhat boring.

I found a video trailer on youtube with the voice, says it's Rex Allen, so you are right.

Walt Disney was a horrible person with some truly awful beliefs.

I really wouldn't hold him as a higher standard than Harry Potter movies.

This story includes two source links, one titled "Dalya Alberge for The Observer" and the other "The Guardian," both of which point to the same article in The Guardian...from where the entire story is pulled.

But, yeah, let's just go with another Daily Mail article.

That's the voice stuck in my head. Thank you! I've been searching for a while.

Fark You.
I am knowledgeable about Walt, his life, and accomplishments.
So Fark You.

Says the guy with the worst English accent in a movie, ever, and that's including Kevin Costner in Robin Hood. I've always found Mary Poppins downright creepy.

So how is it that you talk and Pluto doesn't?

Maybe someone can explain this to me...

I see these headlines all the time:  Dick Van Dyke says...  or Vin Diesel says....
How am I hearing about this?  I mean, is their publicist calling every newspaper, magazine, Web site pitching "man, guess what this has been I represent just said?"

Not that Mr. Van Dyke is a has been, but lately, all these people are being quoted and I'm wondering who makes a decision to spread the word?

Also, I agree as above, if you've never seen Cold Turkey, it is a treat.  It is right in line humor like Blazing Saddles, It's a Mad Mad World, etc.

Lots of stars and laugh out loud gags.
 
2017-04-17 11:33:06 PM  
The greatest film star of Van Dyke's time had a whole career based on violence.

Spanky McStupid: Came here to say that

Yeah, but he can still do this at over 90 years old. Without autotune, recording studio, etc. If he wasn't sitting in a booth at the time, he'd've been dancing, too.

Agreed about how scary that movie was, though.

Love that man.  What a lucky random bunch of diners.

I would probably have been shaking too much to hold a phone camera.
