R.I.P. Kevin Corcoran: Pop Culture Curmudguin #41

Welcome back to Pop Culture Curmudguin.  As I write this article, news passed hours ago that Kevin Corcoran has passed to that great rookery in the sky.  What’s that?  You have no freaking idea who Kevin Corcoran is?  Well, actually that is not that big of a shock as long as you are not a big pre-Eisner Disney fan.  Kevin was a child actor who appeared in many Disney productions in the 1950s and early 1960’s.  Was he any good?  Wellllllllllllllllll…

Pop Culture Curmudguin #9: Happy 80th Birthday Donald Duck

Who’s never wrong, but always right, who’d never dream of starting a fight;                

Who gets stuck with all the bad luck…no one, but Donald Duck.

It is 80 years ago this week that Donald Duck debuted.  Of all the Disney characters, he is perhaps the most interesting.  Mickey Mouse is even more of the white meat babyface than John Cena could ever dream of being.  Goofy is the bumbling sidekick.  But Donald is not just the id, but the super id for all of us.  Like Donald, we have all had our great plans blow up completely in our face. We have all felt the urge to simply rage.  This is my tribute to Donald Duck.
