Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler



If you subscribe to the AllEars® Weekly Newsletter, you’ll know that we run a little game called the Mousy Mindboggler. Sometimes it’s a word game, sometimes it’s a riddle, sometimes it’s some other brain-teasing challenge — but it’s always fun!

Once each month, in the AllEars® Bits and Bites issue, our friend James Dezern (known as “dzneynut” around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design. The puzzles have some sort of Disney theme, of course, but will not be restricted to the Disney theme parks. The type of puzzle is up to James. Also up to him? The bestowing of a prize — a collectible Disney pin from his extensive collection.

Around the middle of each month, James is also going to Share the Magic in another way — by posting a puzzle in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. Again, the subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!

The first Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler Puzzle is a crossword-style puzzle with the theme: The Voices of PIXAR Characters. Potential answers are in the “word bank” under the puzzle, but don’t be fooled! Not all of the words in the word bank are used in the puzzle.

Here’s the link to this week’s puzzle:


So… Think you know Disney inside and out? Put on your thinking cap!

The purpose of this puzzle is to provide a fun way to learn, but if you want to take it a step further, arrange the letters that are circled in the puzzle to come up with the answer to the bonus question, which relates to the puzzle theme.

Send your resulting answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to [email protected]

Send the bonus term or phrase by email no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on March 22, 2013. All correct answers will be entered into a random drawing, and the winner will be awarded a Disney pin. The answers and drawing winner will be posted in this Guest Blog, along with a new puzzle, in mid-April.

We hope you enjoy this new version of the Mousy Mindboggler, and we welcome any comments or suggestions.

Have fun!
