When you wish upon a star
Does it make a difference where you are
Will anything your heart desires
Still come to you?
If your home is not your dream
Living on the 2nd floor makes you scream
When you look up at the stars
Is it enough to make you stew?
Fate was kind
She brings to those who work
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing
Like a bolt out of the blue
The Actor's Union helps you sue
When you threaten to go to the Bar
Disney will come crawling to you.
Daddy and I live near Disneyland.
Some of the most famous Animal Actors in the history of Hollywood live there...Mickey and Minnie, Donald and Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto are just among the ones with Seniority. ;-D
One day in April, as Daddy let me take a look outside...
I noticed one of the neighbors on the stairwell.
Not just ANY Grasshopper, mind you, but the most famous one in Show Business!
His real name is known only to a few, but the world knows him by the screen name of his most famous role...Jiminy Cricket.
He is the VOICE of the Cricket Actor who, like many in the early days of Hollywood, could perform like the best of them, but absolutely DID NOT have the voice for Talkies.
The Cricket, and the Grasshopper, an unlikely duo to bring a beloved character to life on screen.
So what was he doing living HERE?
Well, it seems he and the Cricket had a falling out in March, over what he wouldn't say.
The upshot was that higher-ups at Disney kicked him off the grounds, and the Screen Actor's Guild hired lawyers to get him re-instated.
Last week the situation was resolved, without even going to court, and was so hush hush that not even the Paparazzi, and Mainstream Media, had a clue as to what was going on.
The Cricket and the Grasshooper are again on good terms, and all is once more right in The Magic Kingdom. ;-D
