    The Disney Adventures Archive, Part 2

    Like This Thread!

    The previous incarnation of this thread hit 200 posts, so I figured we should probably start over to keep things relatively organized. (Mars, you can lock the old one.) Just so any newcomers to the thread don't repeat any issues from the first one, here's what we've already covered:
    February 1993
    June 1993
    August 1993
    October 1993
    December 1993
    February 1994
    March 1994
    August 1994
    November 1994
    December 1994
    March 1995
    August 1995
    October 1995
    December 1995
    April 1997
    August 30, 1997
    October 1997
    February 1998
    July 1998
    April 1999
    September 1999
    Winter 2000
    October 2000
    October 2003


    And what better way to kick off thread number two than with a loving look back at the very first issue of Disney Adventures, November 1990!


    This cover is iconic. You've seen it before, I'm sure - Mars has it in the Magazine Alley article. A few interesting things of note: the magazine only cost $1.95 back then (it had gone up to $3.50 by the 2000s), and it was considered an "official publication of the Disney Afternoon". Which would explain the limited selection of comics inside...but more on that later.


    What's the very first product to be advertised in DA? Starburst! The TV spots for "The Juice is Loose" campaign were more interesting than the print ads were.
    That ad for "Galaxy 5000" for the NES sure seems proud of those amazing graphics. Me, I can't even tell what I'm looking at.


    What the-- fan mail already?!
    Well, actually, if you want to get technical, this isn't the first issue of DA. They published a special preview issue in the summer of 1990 - I don't have it, and I don't know how it was distributed, but it probably encouraged kids to send in their fan letters for the "real" issue number one.


    The format for these early issues is pretty straightforward. Whichever celebrity is on the cover, they get a four-page interview right at the front of the magazine. Interesting to note that they were pushing this "cool nerd" idea years before the infamous Urkel issue.


    Here's a very haphazardly laid out Ticket, the section that survived the longest from the magazine's original incarnation (it lived well into the 2000s, though by that time it had been renamed Flash). DA really loved Wilson Phillips in 1990 - they gave them even more print space in the December issue.


    And now, presenting the very first comic to ever be printed in Disney Adventures..."Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers"! Here's a good example of how much space was in the magazine this early on - this is a two-part story, and they were able to put both parts in one issue. And it's long - it starts on page 29 and ends on page 52.
    Chip, Dale, Gadget, Monty, and Zipper hung around DA's pages for a surprisingly long time - I think their last comic appearance was in 1996. I guess that's the sort of prestige you earn when you're the first ones in.


    This month's Big Adventure is all about cowboys - and not the movie kind, but the real ones of the 1800s and today. I guess in 1990, kids still considered cowboys "cool". (Now it's all pirates this and ninjas that.)


    Backpack takes us all the way to Russia...whoops, sorry, I mean the Soviet Union. Forgot when I was for a second there.


    "TaleSpin" gets inducted into the comics anthology with "Louie's Ristorante". I've actually read this comic before - it was reprinted several years later in a promotional newsstands-only issue from the fall of 1992, which commemorated the premiere of "Goof Troop". (I don't have it anymore, but given that most of the content in it was recycled from previous issues, I don't consider it worth seeking out.)


    Cyber takes us inside the thrilling world of scoreboards. Excited yet?


    Here's the first "Duck Tales" comic. There were a lot of these early in the magazine's run, and quite a few of them were very handsomely drawn. I guess if you're drawing Scrooge McDuck, you can't escape at least a little bit of Carl Barks influence.


    The cowboy theme continues into this month's Impulse, a section that's all about action, action, action. There didn't seem to be enough about rodeo riders to fill out the whole section, though, so it segues into an article on race car drivers (and that wouldn't be the last time they'd talk about that, either.)


    Roger Rabbit bursts into the comics scene in another page that my scanner choked on. This was back when Roger was at the height of his popularity, and Disney was promoting him left and right ("Rollercoaster Rabbit", the second of three theatrical Roger shorts, had just been released in front of Dick Tracy several months prior). It's funny, because he's all over the magazine until May 1993, after which he suddenly disappears without a trace. But we know why.


    How would you pronounce this? Do you actually spell out "X-O-X-X-O-X", or do you just say "Zhocks-zhocks?"


    And we close out with the back cover. Here's something odd - I have two copies of this issue, and sure enough, the local station logo on the bottom of this ad differs between the two. Apparently, they actually printed the logos of different local syndicates depending on where the magazine was sold. What, was the phrase "Check your local listings" too confusing?

    I'll see if I can close the first topic, but if you weren't aware, the forum has had a lot of glitches lately.

    They crammed a lot into that first issue; I was impressed enough to make it a monthly purchase. Note that despite this being "the official magazine of the Disney Afternoon" Gummi Bears is not mentioned or seen (Roger Rabbit gets a comic instead).

    I also loved how big the comics originally were. The mag was once half comics (I counted). The Rescue Rangers one with the painted backgrounds was just beautiful; I'd never seen that done before. I can still taste the Cheese Wheatables I was eating when I read that story. Can't buy those anymore, nor can you the magazine.

    My copy of the first issue has "Check your local listings for time and channel" on the back. I had no idea there were variations.

    I believe the preview issue was given out as a promo through Kellogg's cereals. It's been such a long time, so I don't really remember.

    All right, we've seen Volume 1, Issue 1 - now, for the sake of comparison, let's take a look at something from the complete opposite end of the spectrum. I recently decided to just go for it and start collecting the 2000s issues too (someone on eBay was selling 33 issues from 2000-2007 in top condition for $4.25 - I'd have to be stupid not to take advantage of a bargain like that). Until they arrive, though, let's look at the issue that set the stage for them. It's the very last issue of the 1990s... Music 1999?


    This was actually the first of several newsstand-exclusive issues that DA did around this time. They weren't regular issues; instead, they devoted themselves entirely to one topic, usually music or video games. Of course, 1999 was one of the most monotonous years for music - four bubblegum pop starlets, three Latin superstars, and at least six or more boy bands. Let's see who gets overplayed first.
    Oh yeah, and this is a kids' magazine, so aside from Will Smith, there'll be absolutely no mention of what was going on in the rap world at the time. (I'll give you a hint: the odds of his appearing are "Slim" to none.)


    "'Summer Girls' was just the beginning"...and it also happened to be the end.
    LFO, the boy band nobody cared about. I wouldn't be surprised if you blocked them from your memory. "Summer Girls" was one of the worst songs ever written. They've done tests.


    Here, Britney Spears poses with a member of the legion of mini-Britneys that will shortly be taking over the world.
    This Weird Al Yankovic comic that spans the next couple of pages is definitely the highlight of the magazine. Where else in this miasma of pop sludge are you going to find accordion-dwelling bologna gremlins?


    Heh, you thought I was kidding about the gremlins, didn't you?
    Speaking of Britney, I have to admit that when I bought this issue, I had kind of a crush on her. (In my defense, this was back when it was okay to find her attractive.) I was quite surprised to learn that she and I share the same birthday. I was born December 2, 1986; she was born December 2, 1981. I thought to myself "Hmm, that's only a five-year difference...maybe, someday!" (Of course, when I turned 18, she turned 23, and by that time she'd already hooked up with Kevin Federline and been married to some guy for 55 hours. And I'd set my sights on more obtainable women, i.e. ones who aren't celebrities.)


    So who's represented among the best music of 1999? Well, not the real best of 1999, I can tell you that. (By the way, get used to this format - more than half the magazine is printed vertically for some reason.)


    Rounding out the top honors are the Backstreet Boys, the Backstreet Boys, and the Backstreet Boys. Seriously, DA, we get it. You love these guys. You put them on your cover three times this year. Give it a rest.


    At least Aerosmith gets a mention in the Best Rock category. That's pretty cool, although I don't think they actually put out any albums in 1999. And unfortunately, I have a feeling that most of the kids who voted for them only know them through "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" from the Armageddon soundtrack.
    Who the hell voted for Melissa Joan Hart in the Best Hip-Hop/R&B Act category? Did she even have an album? (It gets dumber; a couple of idiot kids put down Titanic as their choice for Best Video. On a music survey. 2 + 2, kids, c'mon.)


    I have to say, DA was really bad at these "predict which music acts will be big next year" things. Seriously, does anybody remember any of these guys?


    Oh yeah, and if the birthday thing didn't do enough to further my 13-year-old crush on Britney Spears, this photo of what she looked like at my age totally clinched it.


    Here's where this issue really goes to hell - the Comics Zone. I told you that Weird Al thing was as good as it got.
    First, we have N'Sync getting zapped into the Internet. Maybe they'll bump into Freakazoid while they're in there.


    Guess which pop star this is. I dare you.
    . . .
    It's Christina Aguilera. 'Cause, y'know, she's always zipping around on jet packs and showing off her sonic shields when she's in concert.


    Finally, the Dixie Chicks use tiny spaceships to fight this mad scientist who controls the weather to rain out their concert...or something.
    I miss Darkwing Duck.


    We'll close out with this ad. In which Dennis the Menace, Pippi Longstocking, and Dame Edna react with exhilaration, cluelessness, and "did I leave the stove on" (respectively) upon seeing an entire aisle of cookies mysteriously disappearing.

    To be fair, neither did the Beatles, for obvious reasons. Their single vote for Best Pop Act is nice to see...the Streisand one less so. Nothing against Barbra, but the jokes are obvious.

    "New Kids on the Block had a lot of hits..." and LFO probably wishes they had more than one.

    What a painful issue! It's clear they had editors at that point who had no idea how to talk to kids, so they just faked it by shoving in Top 40 acts everywhere they could.

    I wish Ashley had pushed that Delete key. It would have saved us many years of Timberlake.

    Britney is closer to my age, but she's also mentally closer to annoying ditzy cheerleaders, even now. If it weren't for Jessica Simpson, Britney could be declared the dumbest celebrity of the decade. Nothing about her is attractive IMO.

    Curiously, I actually remember Nobody's Angel from (get this) when Nickelodeon Magazine picked them as "the next big thing". So, to the defense of the former editors of DA Magazine, they weren't the only ones to screw up a prediction big time.

    Speaking of Nick Magazine, I know I have it somewhere, but if I can cook up the issues from 1997 I'll post them somewhere here. All three consecutive summer issues (June, July, August) practically bow down to the now eternally infamous crapfest known only as "Batman and Robin". Man, those editors loved to put Mr. Freeze in everything back then...

    That reminds me - the June 30, 1997 issue of DA also has a lot of Batman and Robin content in it. I'll have to give that one a scan pretty soon...

    Just when I was about to go surfing for Nick mags in my room, I went to my library job and found out that somebody donated over a dozen Disney Adventures magazines post-2000 in terrific condition! I won't be able to start scanning anything until either tomorrow or Sunday, but here's what I have received:

    Summer 2002 (The Lilo and Stitch issue)
    September 2002
    October 2002
    November 2002
    December 2002
    February 2003
    March 2003
    April 2003
    May 2003
    August 2003
    October 2003
    November 2003
    March 2004

    So, unless one of you gets to it first, I'm now more than willing to contribute to the archive. Interestingly, Kim Possible appears on over half of these covers. I never knew she was that popular...

    You didn't? Go on Deviantart sometime. It's still full of her.

    I never read the Nick magazine, because I didn't get Nick the STATION, so....whatever. It'll hold no nostalgia value for me, but if it will for you, do it.

    Very little in Nickelodeon Magazine has to do with Nickelodeon itself. It's basically filled with goofy articles and comedy for kids that has a very "Nickelodeon" feel for it. And it's still that way today. (MAD had a short lived kid spin-off that very much had the same feel, except it threw in old Don Martin cartoons.)

    Meh, unlike Disney Adventures, Nickelodeon Magazine is still running, so there wouldn't be as much of a point to an "archive" just yet...

    But I would be interested in seeing some of the issues before everything started going south (which, I can't place an exact date on it, but...probably around 2003).

    Considering her design and target demographic, that's about the least shocking thing I've ever heard.

    Anyways, I'm planning on adding the summer 2002 issue (Lilo and Stitch) tomorrow...

    Better late than never, huh?

    Okay, first off: I'd like to say I now respect what JB Warner does much, much more. It took a little over three hours to get this post up, and boy howdy, I sure hope it was worth it all! This was the first time doing a major scanning project like this with a somewhat outdated scanner, so it may be a little oversized and the quality might be off.

    All right, now that's out of the way, so let's dive in!


    DA Summer 2002! The year Disney's arguably last traditionally animated hit debuted: "Lilo and Stitch". And boy, did it turn into a little cash cow for them. Though considering the Disney cash cows today are Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers, it wasn't so bad, was it?
    And no, Stitch is not sniffing a line of cocaine, that's what's left of the address label that I pulled off to protect the identity of whoever dumped thirteen DA magazines in a library book drop.


    C-level? Really?


    Sigh. Oreo O's. The one cereal I always stared wistfully at in the supermarket knowing full well there was no way in hell I'll ever get to taste it.


    This page is absolutely inexplicable. Why on earth would kids care about:
    A. The composer of the soon-to-be-flop "The Country Bears".
    B. A parade opening up in a theme park that they'll probably never, ever get to visit.


    Hey, Adam Lamberg! I'll have you know that most dress codes (including mine at the time) won't let you wear a hat! You tease, you!


    In case you haven't forgotten the horror. Remember, this is during a time before the "Pirates of the Caribbean" film struck gold, so back then it looked like an even worse idea.


    Hey kids! One of these three has actually risen to stardom and is a household name! Bet ya can't guess which one!


    So, yeah, bookmarks. Weird when considering how little this magazine advocates reading outside of Harry Potter.


    Just in case you want to know some DA history and behind-the-scenes, here you go!


    Look, it's Mary-Kate and Ashley in their DTV days! Just after their Full House days, and just before their "making relatively normal men think they might be pedophiles" phase.


    The cover story that also includes "Lilo's Journal", where Lilo somehow is able to get Stitch to tell her all about his escape. Not bad for a creature who didn't speak that well in the actual movie.


    The anatomy of Stitch, just in case you were curious.


    A "Lilo and Stitch" comic that consists of Lilo taking Stitch to the vet, only to be promptly booted out. Lilo misunderstands, and tells her new friend that he "passed with flying colors" because he never has to come back again. A cute comic, to say the least.


    A "Top 10 Countdown" feature that I felt compelled enough to include a good amount of it. I also always thought Springfield was a common US name, at least according to Matt Groening.


    Shocking they would do a Batman list considering where the franchise was at the moment: in the toilet.


    Do they even bother trying to advise kids about the internet anymore? Even with a parent or teacher by their side, they're still pretty likely to run into some seedy stuff.


    I love "Chris, Wal-Mart Customer", as in, "If you don't buy it at Wal-Mart, you won't have as rad as a time playing it as this kid!" Well, FYI, I bought my GBA at Target and I still had an awesome time playing it. So, there!


    You know it's the early 2000's when one of the questions ask you if you even own a DVD player.


    Scene of the Rhyme? I can't figure out which one took them longer: the awful pun or the incredibly easy clues.


    Finally (and I do mean finally) we get to the comics with this Far Side-esque pair starring the fab five. Enough to furrow the eyebrow, nothing more.


    A four page Kim Possible comic, and this must be one around when the series debuted, considering the intro. A related story, somebody in my screenwriting class last semester compared my one of my characters with Ron Stoppable, leading to a ten minute discussion on how hot of a cartoon character Kim was. This is what my college tuition is paying for, folks!


    A two-page Spy Kids comic, coming from the film series that's more known as "Robert Rodriguez: You know, for kids!"


    Let's end on this one that can only be summed up with one word: Badical.

    Nice work on the magazine HomeMoviesFan. I can see why scanning took so long considering how big your post is.

    Man, I really want this issue again! As I've mentioned before, this was the last one I received in the mail before my subscription of almost eight years finally expired. I wanted to keep it going longer, but my dad basically said "You're not a kid anymore and you don't need to be subscribing to a kids' magazine" (for the record, I was 15). There's a lot of nostalgia attached to this one - I was enamored with Lilo and Stitch that summer. DA had done preview comics for the movie throughout all of the preceeding 2002 issues leading up to this one (and the way they did it was great - two parallel series, one detailing Lilo's inability to fit in with the other kids on the island, and another telling the story of Stitch's creation at the hands of Dr. Jumba - the comic in this issue was the first one to show Lilo and Stitch together), and my interest had been piqued from the start. And what I really loved about the comics was that they were so amazingly on-model - if it weren't for the credits, you'd swear Chris Sanders himself drew them.

    And as you mentioned, this issue introduced me to "Kim Possible". And I really wanted to watch it, but again, I knew my dad would frown upon it (he didn't like me watching kids' shows when I was a teenager, especially not so-called "girl shows" - it's why I rarely, if ever, got to watch "The Powerpuff Girls"). You know, I just realized why my interest in animation exploded one I got out of the house and off to college - I could actually watch whatever I wanted on TV for the first time.

    I'll have to keep an eye on eBay for this one. My collection won't feel the same without it.
