The Mousy Mindboggler



As you know if you subscribe to the AllEars® Weekly Newsletter, each month our friend James Dezern (known as “dzneynut” around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design.

Every month, James also Shares the Magic in another way — by posting an all-new puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog.

This month, James writes:

Here is the solution to the last crossword puzzle.


We received 29 correct responses. All of you knew that the individual titles of the three television shows that were combined to create this motion picture were “Davy Crockett, Indian Fighter,” “Davy Crockett Goes to Congress,” and “Davy Crockett at the Alamo.”

The winner of a Mickey pin, randomly drawn from the correct responses, was Sandy D. of Pittsburgh, PA. Congratulations, Sandy!

If you missed it last month, that’s OK, because here’s another chance.


This month we will take a look at one of the many live-action films that Disney produced starting in the 1950s. Some of these films are quite obscure, like “The Sword and the Rose,” “Rob Roy,” “The Littlest Outlaw” and “The Great Locomotive Chase.” I’m going to try to stick with the more well-known films, such as “Old Yeller” and “The Shaggy Dog.”

This month’s selection, “Johnny Tremain,” really falls more in the first category, but I wanted to do it anyway, because it is one of the few Disney movies set during the Revolutionary War — or any war, for that matter!

The object of this puzzle is, as always, to have fun, but if you’d like a chance to win a Disney collectible pin, send me the answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to

Send your entries no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on May 10, 2017. 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 sometime in May.

As always, any feedback on the puzzle format or topics would be appreciated! Drop me a line at

Thanks for playing, everyone!
