cheap north face Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

November
25

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is a CGI Animated Interactive children’s television series, that premiered in prime time on Disney Channel on May 5, 2006 to present. The program was originally part of the Playhouse Disney daily block intended for preschoolers. On February 14, 2011, it was moved to the Disney Junior block, serving as Playhouse Disney’s replacement. It is the only Mickey Mouse program to be aimed at preschoolers.

Production of the show was put on a four month suspension in the spring of 2009, due to the death of voice artist Wayne Allwine, the longtime voice of Mickey Mouse. Production has resumed now that Bret Iwan has been cast as Mickey’s voice, the latest in a series of performers who have voiced Mickey since 1928 (Mickey’s original voice on film and later on television in most of his appearances from 1928 to 1961 was the character’s creator, Walt Disney). Iwan’s first performance for the show was with the episode "Mickey and Donald Have a Farm", which aired onNovember 5, 2012. On December 27, 2013, the show ceased production after 7 years of episodes. However, reruns will still continue on the Disney Junior 24/7 service.

Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto star in the series, which focuses on interacting with the viewer to stimulate problem solving. Pete, Clarabelle Cow, Ludwig Von Drake, Chip ‘n’ Dale, Willie the Giant, Butch, Figaro, Humphrey the Bear, Salty the Seal and Mortimer Mouse have made guest appearances.

Disney says that each episode has the characters help children "solve a specific age appropriate problem utilizing basic skills, such as identifying shapes and counting through ten." The series uses "Disney Junior’s ‘whole child’ curriculum of cognitive, social and creative learning opportunities." Once the problem of the episode has been explained, Mickey invites viewers to join him at the Mousekadoer, a giant Mickey head shaped computer whose main function is to distribute the day’s Mousekatools, a collection (usually 3,4, or possibly 5) of objects needed to solve the day’s problem, to Mickey. Once the tools have been shown to Mickey on the Mousekadoer screen, they are quickly downloaded to Toodles, a small, Mickey head shaped flying extension of the Mousekadoer. By calling, "Oh Toodles!" Mickey summons him to pop up from where he is hiding and fly up to the screen so the viewer can pick which tool Mickey needs for the current situation. One of the tools is a "Mystery Mouskatool", which is a surprise tool represented by a question mark.

The Walt Disney Television Animation produced program was initially announced on March 1, 2005 by Gary Marsh, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, Disney. Mickey and friends previously appeared on television in Mickey Mouse Works (1999 2000) and Disney’s House of Mouse (2001 03).

The show features two original songs performed by They Might Be Giants, including the opening theme song, in which a variant of a Mickey Mouse Club chant ("Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse!") is used to summon the Clubhouse. They Might Be Giants also perform the song used at the end of the show, "Hot Dog!", which echoes Mickey’s first spoken words in the 1929 short The Karnival Kid. The characters debuted in CG form in 2003 at the Magic Kingdom [[Click to Continue > by flashmall1 1theme park]] attraction Mickey’s PhilharMagic, then in the 2004 home video Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas. However, in this latest incarnation, Mickey’s and Minnie’s 3D renderings are truer to their original hand drawn likenesses, in that their ears remain distinct perfect circles regardless of which way their heads are turned. Along with improved animation for the second season, the series is now available in HD on Disney Channel HD.

Minnie’s Bow Toons

Minnie’s Bow Toons is a short episode continuing series spun off from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which premiered in the fall of 2011 on the Disney Channel. It usually airs in the daytime Disney Junior programming block for younger audiences. It’s based on the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse episode "Minnie’s Bow Tique" and depicts Minnie Mouse’s continuing adventures in business as proprietor of her own store which makes and sells bows for apparel and interior decoration. She interacts with many of the characters seen in the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse series. For the second season onward, Mickey left the show with "Thanks for stopping by." while "See ya real soon!" is now used only for special events.

Porsche Chief Matthias Mueller Favourite to be Volkswagen’s New CEO

File Photo of Matthias Mueller, CEO of German Car maker Porsche. (AFP)

Frankfurt: Matthias Mueller, head of luxury sportscar maker Porsche, looks set to take the steering wheel at scandal hit Volkswagen, replacing Martin Winterkorn who stepped down two days ago.

VW’s supervisory board was scheduled to approve the appointment of the 62 year old manager, at a meeting in the carmaker’s headquarters in Wolfsburg, northern Germany, on Friday morning.

Mueller, born in the former East Germany, had already been tipped to take over during a bitter leadership struggle earlier this year between Winterkorn and his one time mentor and former supervisory board chief Ferdinand Piech.

It was Winterkorn who eventually won that battle, only to fall this week over the pollution cheating scandal, the biggest ever to hit VW.

Both Mueller’s and Winterkorn’s careers are closely interlinked.

They already worked together at VW’s top line brand, Audi, in Ingolstadt in Bavaria, where Mueller began his career and Winterkorn was appointed chief in 2002.

And at more or less the same time that Winterkorn was appointed CEO at the entire VW group in 2007, Mueller went to Wolfsburg, too, where he took charge of the projects department and was subsequently made a general representative of the group.

Football fan

Born on June 9, 1953, in Limbach Oberfrohna in former East Germany, Mueller fled to the West, to the neighbouring regional state of Bavaria, with his parents.

He told the daily Die Welt that he originally wanted to become a professional football player.

And he is still a keen soccer fan and supporter of FC Bayern and Stuttgarter Kickers, according to the mass circulation daily Bild.

But in the end, Mueller trained as a tool maker at Audi and went on to study information technology in Munich.

According to Die Welt, Mueller is a man "who loves cars and who loves people who love cars."

His first car was a VW Beetle and he now owns an Audi TT and Porsche 911, according to Bild. And he occasionally likes to go for a jaunt in the legendary Porsche 550 Spyder sports car that he borrows from Porsche’s own museum.

Die Welt dubbed him "the imperturbable" and said he was someone who knows how to use his elbows.

"But I don’t see it as playing foul, rather as a sign of perseverance and mettle," the newspaper quoted him as saying.

Uwe Hueck, head of Porsche’s works committee, said Mueller "has the whiff of Porsche about him. His engine is seated lower and he has wide tyres."

Mueller who tends to lapse into a strong Bavarian dialect when not on duty was appointed CEO at Porsche in 2010, not long after VW had emerged victorious in its tortuous takeover battle with Porsche.

As far back as 2005, Porsche hatched an audacious plan to take control of VW which was 15 times larger than Porsche.

But the plan ran out of steam a result of the financial crisis and failed to win enough support from VW’s shareholders. This led to VW turning the tables on Porsche and taking over the sports car maker.

"Porsche has come along very successfully and is now in better shape than ever before," he beamed.

cheap longchamp bags Leafs left with bruised Eggos

Leafs left with bruised Eggos

Ron Judd, in the Seattle Times: "The region’s 17 remaining pro hoops fans are all a drool over the notion that Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer might lay down more than a billion dollars to hijack the NBA’s New Orleans Hornets into a mythical new Puget Sound pro sports arena/perpetual money pit. Or, for an even better public show, he could just stack all that money outside his house and light it on fire." . . . Hey, Kamloops, was that a nice Christmas present from big oil, or what? . . .

George Johnson, in the Calgary Herald, writing about the Flames’ general manager: "Six years ago, this city was at Darryl Sutter’s feet. Now it’s at his throat. . . . This, remember, is the Darryl Sutter who reminds you of the ancient mythical Greek sea beast Hydra cut one head off and two more pop out, sneering, snarling, spitting venom. The Darryl Sutter who carries his omnipotence and condescension and (whether he wants to admit it to himself or not) his insecurity room to room, door to door, a Welcome Wagon of misery." . . . More from Johnson: "Standing behind the bench during games, face twisted into a pained scowl, the unfortunate Brent Sutter looks like a wrongly convicted Death Row inmate who has no idea when that knock on his cell door might be coming. It’s been suggested that a ‘mercy firing’ could be the best thing for him, for his health and sanity. There’s probably more truth in that assessment than even he is willing to admit." . . .

Such is life around the Toronto Maple Leafs that when a fan tossed some waffles onto the ice late in a recent game, it was a big, big story in Toronto the Great. . . . "If you’re bringing waffles to a game, maybe you have issues of your own," defenceman Luke Schenn said. "Maybe they were blueberry waffles, chocolate chip, who knows? It was definitely a first." . . . But the best of the quotes belonged to captain Dion Phaneuf: "That’s the first I’ve heard of it. I’ve seen lots of stuff thrown out on the ice, but I didn’t even see it so I can’t comment on it. I’ve never seen a waffle, no. I’m not commenting on it." . . . It seems only appropriate that the Leafs’ captain should waffle, rather than comment. . . . As Ian Hamilton of the Regina Leader Post put it: "Humbled by the actions of their so called supporters, Leafs players reportedly suffered bruised Eggos." . . .

Cam Hutchinson, in the Saskatoon StarPhoenix: "The 2012 Brier will be played in Saskatoon, where Kevin Martin and Glenn Howard will play in the final." . . . After Luke Scott of the Baltimore Orioles said he doesn’t believe President Obama was born in the United States, the Left Coast Sports Babe noted: "But, come on, what do you expect of a player dumb enough to sign with the Orioles?” . . . Dwight Perry, in the Seattle Times: "Brett Favre . . . Randy Moss . . . Brad Childress . . . the Metrodome. At least the Vikings ought to be accustomed to having the roof fall in on them by now." . . .

If you’re a fan of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, you should know that receiver Andy Fantuz worked out this week for the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers and will do the same for the Minnesota Vikings. . . . So left hander Cliff Lee leaves a whack of cash on the table and signs with the Philadelphia Phillies. Makes you wonder if the ink on the contract was dry before he heard from the Major League Baseball Players Association. . . . You have to love how the Phillies dealt Lee to the Seattle Mariners for three prospects and, in the end, wound up with Lee and got to keep the prospects. . . . One of those prospects, of course, was outfielder Tyson Gillies of Kamloops. . . . So why did the Phillies trade Lee in the first place? . . .

The Left Coast Sports Babe, on the Lee signing: "Only in America can a man who signs a contract to play a game for five years and $120 million, be lauded for following his heart and turning down the highest bidder.” . . . Here’s Phil Sheridan, in the Philadelphia Inquirer: "Well, this just doesn’t happen. Highly coveted free agent athletes take their talents to South Beach, or sign bank busting contracts with the Washington Nationals. That’s just how it is. And then along comes Cliff Lee. By most reasonable estimates, Lee decided to pay somewhere between $30 million and $40 million for the privilege of returning to pitch for the Phillies. That is real, actual money the difference between a five year contract here and the reported seven year, $160 million contract Lee was offered by the Yankees." . . .

Matt Millen, one of the NFL Network’s analysts, was working the San Francisco 49ers at San Diego Chargers game Thursday, when he was trying to make the point that the defending champion New Orleans Saints are again Super Bowl contenders. The Saints, he said, are flying under the radar. Or, as he put it, "Everybody is not talking about them." . . . Old friend Paul Romanuk will call the play as TSN provides coverage of the Spengler Cup from Davos, Switzerland. It starts with Canada playing Davos or Spartak Moscow on Dec. Riding shotgun with Romanuk will be Doug Honegger, a former Swiss league player. . . . A tweet from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun, with the Oilers poised to unveil cheerleaders: "Maybe the idea of the Oiler cheerleaders is for the young players to date them, marry them and stay here. No Mrs. Pronger problems." . . .

The Orange Bowl junior tennis tournament runs this month in Key Biscayne, Fla. "If you’re not sure where it is," writes Greg Cote of the Miami Herald, "just listen for the shriek of overbearing parents berating line judges." . . . A tweet from the Vancouver Sun’s Iain MacIntyre: "Why does (Pavel) Bure number retirement debate continue? He didn’t want to be here; couldn’t get out soon enough. He is DQ’d. End of story." . . . To which the Sun’s Elliott Pap added: "let me just say, Pavel Bure’s No. 10 should never be hung from the rafters unless the punk is still in it." . . . Keeping Score won’t be here a week from today. Hey, it’ll be Christmas Day. But watch for a special year end edition in the Dec. 31 issue of The Daily News. . . . In the meantime, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and thanks for stopping by.
