    I'm not afraid of commitment. (That is, of course, as long as they're not trying to commit me!

    Fortunately, it seems there isn't a day without some historical Disney significance.

    0) Oswald was a lucky rabbit.
    1) There were three Disney Oswald films following The Fox Chase, and Walter Lantz continued the character after Disney lost the rights to him.
    2) Yes, it was Charles Mintz, and Universal had the rights and distributed them

    3) The advertising slogan for this (fourth) Herbie film was: 'Yes, We Have A ________' Banana is incorrect.
    4) How many payphones are by the restrooms at Wolfgang Puck Express?

    By the way, I will post the answers to these questions at the end of each day, when I post the next day's tidbits, if they have not been correctly answered.

    3) 'Yes, We Have A Bananza.'
    4) There are two Wolfgang Puck Expresses! Not that it makes any difference, since this is just a guess anyway! 3 payphones.

    Both are correct. Isn't one a cafe and the other express?

    (407) 827-9601, 9547, 9419 are the numbers.
