Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler – November 2014



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.

Around the middle of each month, James Shares the Magic in another way — by posting an all-new puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. The subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!

This month, James writes:

Here’s the answer key to the October Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler Word Search:


There were 71 responses to the word search puzzle on WDW bodies of water. The first 10 unused letters in the puzzle were JOZFUSKLVM.

The winner of a Mike & Sully pin was Jessica P. of Lakewood, CO. Thanks for playing!

This month we are going to continue with a word search puzzle, but this time the subject will be animated PIXAR characters.

From 1995 when the first “Toy Story” arrived in theaters to the latest “Monsters University,” it seems Pixar Animation Studios can do no wrong. Disney was so impressed with the company, they decided to bring them into the fold in 2006. During that time they have created literally hundreds of lovable characters, from toys to monsters. At Disney they like to say it all started with a mouse, but at Pixar I guess you could say it all started with a lamp and a ball!

Here’s the link to the new word search puzzle:


If you’d like to be entered for a chance to win a collectible Disney pin, there’s no need to send me the completed puzzle; just list the first 10 unused letters, starting with the first row of the puzzle. Send your resulting answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to [email protected].

Send your entries no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on December 12, 2014. 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-December.

Since I actually received some wrong answers for the first two word search puzzles, I’m wondering if they may be too hard? What does everyone think? Any feedback on the different format would be appreciated! Drop me a line at [email protected].

And Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
