AllEarsNet TV – Jack’s Pirate Room

Jack Spence Masthead

Hi Everyone,

In case you didn’t know, AllEars has started a new video series. Each week, Deb Wills hosts a show that brings our readers a “bit of Disney.” The topics will be as varied as our blogs. Sometimes we’ll discuss new offerings like “Epcot After Hours“ and “Harambe Nights.” Other times we’ll bring you park and resort details like “Fort Wilderness Little Known Facts.” You never know what’s in store so you’ll just have to tune in to find out.

This week, Deb came to my home and allowed me to show off my “Pirate” guest bedroom We had a lot of fun filming this segment and I hope you find it interesting and entertaining.

I have already recorded another session with Deb about the PeopleMover at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom. And I plan on doing more videos in the future. To make sure you don’t miss anything, you might want to subscribe to our new show.

  1. It was so nice to finally meet the man behind the blog. I so enjoyed your video of the Pirate room in your home that I showed it to some Disney-ites at work.
    I will have to subscribe to Allears TV this weekend.

    Thanks again for all your hard work.

    See you on TV!!

  2. Hi Jack.
    I enjoyed your video and all the hard work you put into that room.
    It was so great seeing you again too!
    Looking forward to more videos.

  3. Hi Jack. Just watched the video and the room looks great. We have a room we call the Disney office in our home painted in Mickey colors. In the video you mention being the maître d at Club 33. A few years back I bought an old phone with the club logo on it and no dial. I think it is the phone that would have been at the maitre d stand. I tried to find old photos to see if I could see it but club 33 photos are hard to come by. Would you be willing to take a look at a photo of it?

    Jack’s Answer:

    I would be more than happy to take a look at your phone. Just replay to this email. However, I haven’t worked at the Club 33 in over 30 years. I can’t guarantee I’ll remember it. LOL

  4. Hey Jack!
    I really enjoyed this episode of All Ears TV. Your Pirate Room is simply fantastic. I do have to ask one question though, In the last portion of the episode where you discuss the Marc Davis post cards, there is what looks to be a lithography behind you of Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto portraying the famous Jail scene of POTC, I was wondering who the artist is. It looks to me that it was done by Ducky Williams. Just wondering if this was the case.
    Your Friend,

    P.S. Cant wait to meet you on Sunday!

    Jack’s Answer:

    What you saw was a sericel. These were hand-painted cels, but were never used in an actual movie. After the animation department was closed at the Disney/MGM Studios, many of the artists there began creating these for general sale to the public. They sold for several hundred dollars and were never signed.

  5. I have to say “ditto”: I remember reading your blog about the Pirate room when you first published it, and I agree that it’s great to hear you for the first time.

    Great work, something to be very proud of!

  6. Hey Jack
    Love the video of your pirate room. All of that hard work paid off. It looks great, especially the pirtate doorknobs. It’s like you always say, keep your eye out for the little details. Can’t wait for your next blog and as always keep up the great work.

  7. Good morning Jack! I loved this video (I was able to get a much better sense of what you did than the pictures from your blog). I said it before that I loved your creativity and I will say it again. I love your creativity! It’s apparent that a lot of thought and time went into this bedroom and the end result is amazing! Are any other rooms in your home Disney themed?

  8. I really enjoyed this video. (It was nice to actually “hear” you.) I remember your posts as you were going through the process w/ this room and the pains that you took to insure authenticity. We’ve only been to Disneyland once. I had to negotiate to convince my husband to stop in Anaheim on a business trip back from Oahu. But I much preferred the Pirates ride there. We were able to eat at the Blue Bayou as well. Take care.

  9. Hi Jack –

    I’m re-posting my comment which I posted on your Pirate Room video on YouTube:

    “Great Video!! This episode’s like AllEars HGTV!! I’ve been reading “The World According To Jack” since August 2009, and remember reading the blog where Jack described his Pirate room. I’m so glad to finally see the man behind the blog; it will make reading the posts even more enjoyable.”
