TechnoRetro Dads: Puff the Magic Dragon in the Land of the Living Lies

by TechnoRetro Dads

Speculation from the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker concludes as Puff the Magic Dragon gets his second TV special.

JediShua and shazbazzar check the menu for tomorrow’s Disney+ feast, eat some homework with Puff the Magic Dragon, and gaze into Threepio’s red eyes in the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker.

Take a walk in a field of clever with shazbazzar and JediShua this Veterans’ Day as TechnoRetro Dads eat cereal, a magic dragon eats homework, and everyone peruses the menu of Disney+ to see what’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomorrow.

We Love Our Cereal…

…and the Roving Spoonster continues to share the love:

  • Google brings back prizes in boxes of cereal?
  • Hershey Kisses cereal doesn’t look appetizing
  • Shelf Elves get sugar cookie cereal

Puff the Magic Dragon in the Land of the Living Lies

He’s your big, green buddy who teaches life-lessons in television specials featuring sing-a-long songs, imaginative animation, and Mickey from Rocky.  Puff the Magic Dragon in the Land of the Living Lies is the sequel that aired one year after The Star Wars Holiday Special.  The second of three Puff the Magic Dragon TV specials featured Sandy who had a penchant for telling whoppers to get attention and/or get out of trouble, so Puff the Magic Dragon selflessly sacrificed himself to teach her the sad truth about lying.

The Wonderful World of Disney+

JediShua and shazbazzar talk about the movies and programs they’re looking forward to watching on the new Disney+ service that kicks off tomorrow.

Star Wars Scrapbook

The Rise of Skywalker discussion continues with the scene of C-3PO with his “friends” that was seen in the final trailer for the final film in the Skywalker saga.  The Elton John soundtrack is not included in this episode.
