Episode #027: Heavyweights

Ah 1995 was a great year to be a kid. Disney was making good family movies that didn't only appeal to one age group and the Disney Afternoon cartoon block was spot on. Yes what a great year.  Part of what makes this a fond time for me is the release of two of my favorite Disney live action, non-blockbuster, movies came out that year. The first, Heavy Weights, we disucss in this week's podcast. Join me as I lament on a movie that still holds up today for both the new and returning viewer.

This episode's listener question is What was your favorite movie growing up? I'm not talking about your Lion Kings or other big blockbusters. What small, possibly direct to video, film do you fondly recall as part of your childhood. Let me know in the comments below.
