Scrooge’s Number One Dime Cookie

Posted by Arthur in Disney comics, Disney products

When shopping at a Real,- supermarket in Germany yesterday, I came across a display of Disney food products, by ‘Disney Magic’. There were many different items (pasta, juice, popcorn, etc.), but the most interesting one for me as a fan of Disney comics was “Dagobert’s 1. Taler”, or “Scrooge’s First Taler” (Taler is the fake currency used in German Disney comics). They are cookies in the shape of coins with a big one on them. Disney comics are very popular in Germany — today nearly one million fans in Germany read Micky Maus every week, and a recent study has shown that approximately one-fifth of parents also enjoy reading along.

New Disney.com launched!

Posted by Arthur in Disney products, Events

Disney has just launched its new Disney.com. It was supposed to go live in January, but it is here today. There is a lot of videos, TV shows, games and music to explore. The revamped website allows users to share content, create playlists and simultaneously play games and engage with friends within a virtual world of Disney characters. The site is very heavy on your bandwidth and requires Flash 9. Be aware that the site may not work immediately when you view it from outside the United States (for me it redirected to Disneyinternational.com at first, but after several tries I got through). So go check it out and have fun! More »
