Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem Band: Muppets Tribute at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, MouseSteps Weekly Latest Show with Commentary – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

This week we noticed a nice tribute to Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem Band in the Stage 1 Company Store at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The famous Muppet band has a long history at Disney-MGM Studios, first appearing in the “Here Come The Muppets” (1990-1991) live stage show (performed in the theater now showing Voyage of the Little Mermaid) and “Muppets On Location: Days of Swine and Roses” (1991-1994) performed in the area where the Cars meet & greet is now located. In the “Here Come The Muppets” show the Muppets arrived via monorail, which crashed through the stage (below, right).

Buy it Now – Jeff Lange Remembers: Disney-MGM Studios Classics Vol 1

Jeff Lange takes you on a trip back in time to experience the early years of the Disney-MGM Studios. This first volume in a series features the following vintage footage:

Studios Entrance Scenes (1989-1992)

Entering the gates of Disney-MGM Studios, you look down Hollywood Boulevard towards the iconic Chinese Theater. Next, visit the original Soundstage Restaurant, themed to a wrap party for the 1988 live action movie Big Business. It’s a hot set – so enter through the side doors!

Here Come The Muppets (1991)

This lively stage show features your favorite Muppets as walk-around characters. The show begins as Kermit is waiting for the other Muppets to arrive. He calls the operator on the video phone, who suggests a reservation at the Chefs De France restaurant, because “they have a special on frogs legs”. Undeterred, Kermit makes a frog-to-pig call to Miss Piggy (in a mud mask), who is initially unaware that her “important business meeting” is being viewed by the audience. Eventually Fozzie Bear, the Electric Mayhem Band, Bean Bunny, Gonzo and Miss Piggy arrive to entertain the audience in typical Muppets fashion!

Soundstage Restaurant (1992)

In the location that currently houses “Playhouse Disney – Live on Stage!”, the Soundstage Restaurant’s theme in 1992 was that of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Meet Belle and her Beast in this counter service restaurant that was elaborately themed as the Beast’s castle and Belle’s quaint village. A hologram rose helps bring the story to life. This segment also includes a brief walk-through of the Catwalk Bar.

The Studio Showcase (1992)

Before there was a Toy Story Pizza Planet restaurant, this area of Disney-MGM Studios was the setting to view movie props from then-current films. This footage contains props from films such as Honey I Blew Up the Kid, The Rocketeer, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Star Today Ceremony (1992)

When Disney-MGM Studios opened, a celebrity was on hand each day for a motorcade and handprint ceremony. Phyllis Diller was the star on July 4th, 1992, and was led down Sunset Boulevard in a procession that included the Hollywood Brass, Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio, and Minnie Mouse.

The Great Movie Ride (1991)

The beautiful replica of Hollywood’s famous Chinese Theater is the centerpiece for this classic dark ride. You’ll tour the courtyard, view movie props in the queue, and enjoy this vintage version of the beloved attraction that takes guests through scenes of famous films throughout movie history. This is the gangster version and includes the original waterfall in the Footlight Parade sequence.

Relive these special Disney memories year after year or experience the magic for the first time by purchasing a copy of “Jeff Lange Remembers Disney-MGM Studios Classics Vol 1”.

disney-mgm-studios-parade-classics-coverJeff Lange takes you back in time to experience this first in a series of DVDs featuring vintage parades from the Disney-MGM Studios.

Dinosaurs Live Parade (1992)

“Ladies and gentlemen, filming right now in front of the Chinese Theater is our Surprise Family for the day, the Sinclair family from La Brea, California!” More of a street party than a parade, the stars of the hit TV show Dinosaurs sing and dance in front of the iconic theater.

Aladdin’s Royal Caravan (1993)

As Aladdin’s Royal Caravan approaches Hollywood Boulevard, you’ll be magically transported to Agrabah! This critically acclaimed parade features a 32-foot tall Genie, as well as the grand entrance of Prince Ali, spitting camels, and the highlight is Aladdin and Jasmine on top of Abu in the form of a giant elephant!

Toy Story Parade (1996)

Led by green army men dancing in precision to “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” (culminating in an Iwo-Jima stance), this lively parade features all of your favorite Toy Story characters, including Buzz Lightyear and Mr. Potato Head. The parade ends with Woody fronting a float brimming with toys, including an Etch-A-Sketch vividly proclaiming “The End”!

Toy Story Weekends (1996)

Enjoy this special opportunity to view the Toy Story Parade floats up close and personal on New York Street!

Mulan Parade (1999)

This unique parade begins with Mushu on the back of a bicycle cart, and includes an extended-length dragon with a body symbolizing the Great Wall of China! Brandishing knives and showcasing their sword moves, the Huns precede a giant inflatable Shan Yu, who is tied to a bed of skulls and fireworks! Mulan and Captain Li Shang are pulled by a horse-drawn carriage beautifully adorned by Chinese symbols, and the parade concludes with a larger-than-life Emperor waving to the crowd!

BONUS: Ace Ventura Pet Detective – Live in Action (1996)

This short-lived comedy stunt show is presented here as a rare bonus!
