Disney’s ‘Hocus Pocus’ Gets Giant Sanderson Sisters Plushies For Halloween
By SEAN FALLON – September 21, 2018

Winifred Sanderson from Disney‘s cult classic film Hocus Pocus isn’t often described as “cuddly”, but this 18-inch plush doll version of her certainly is. The Winifred plush is a Spirit Halloween exclusive that you can order right here along with her sisters Sarah and Mary for $24.99 each.

Winifred wouldn’t admit it, but these plush shouldn’t be purchased individually. The Sanderson Sisters need to stick together. The same is true for Spirit Halloween’s exclusive Hocus Pocus Funko Pop collection… Read More

Yes, We’re Still Celebrating The Damn Anniversary!: KATHY NAJIMY SHARES THE SECRETS OF HOCUS POCUS TO CELEBRATE ITS 25TH ANNIVERSARY

Mister D: Ya’ll know I love Bette Midler. I’m ecstatic that one of her movies is a cultural phenomenon. And I do love Hocus Pocus! But I have articles out the ass of every aspect of this movie. What more can they tell us? OMG! And there are still articles to come! LOL My only wish is that we had this much information and more on all her movies. There are things I’m dying to know about each. Maybe we’ll have to be our own reporters. But everybody’s dying off, to put things bluntly, so I wish I could figure a way out to get some first-hand accounts. Maybe if we all put our heads together we could create a list of people to contact. Think about it. Leave comments, Now enjoy this fine Hocus Pocus article. Thank you! Read More

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Hocus Pocus

A 1993 Halloween-themed Disney film for “kids”. This was the second film directed by Kenny Ortega, previously known for Newsies (1993). Now considered a cult favorite, the film’s rather campy, but pretty entertaining. It does, after all, contain a memorable rendition of “I Put A Spell On You” by Bette Midler. The song “Come Little Children” from this film went on to become a Halloween classic. Read More

Celebrate 25 years of Hocus Pocus On Monday, July 16

Mister D: Not sure what they mean by it showing everywhere. Also, Brandon and I saw a cover for a 25th-anniversary Blu-Ray DVD for Hocus Pocus, but I can’t find it listed on Amazon yet. Brandon said he heard that it would be released in September. I’ve seen dates as soon as July 31, 2018, so I don’t know why everything is so disorganized around this. But keep your eye out for it and I will too. As far as extras….think Disney…how kind have they been on extras? Throwing shade, girlfriends! Read More

Do I love her or do I want to be her? An age old question which, if you listen closely enough, is the sound of baby gays growing their rainbow wings. This pondering pretty much sums up what it’s like to grow up queer. Especially from the 00s, 90s and earlier when gay representation was pretty minimal and the best you could do was project your own budding queerness onto anyone or anything in mainstream media.
