The Wormwood Forest radio show was created for WSM in Nashville. Archive.org has several episode’s of Wormwood Forest, including the episode Walt, Mickey and Donald appeared on online for fans to listen to. In episode 490122, around the 9:30 mark the Disney gang appears and Walt has Mickey explain to the Wormwood Forest group they are looking to film footage for opening scenes for “So Dear to My Heart” and background shots of an “a forest with ancient trees, wild and bent and weathered” and “an old rundown haunted house” and an “old inn, ancient hotel, far removed from the world of today”
Wormwood was a series “written by Tom Tischner, the series features a number of fun characters including hotel assistant Frankie Frog (who often gets poked with a fork), secretary Tallulah Tobacco Worm, Suzie Skunk, the temperamental Siamese Pretty Kitty, Postman Possum, Grandpa Fox, Oleander Salamander the philosopher, Timothy Turtle, Barbara Q. Pig, Gerald Grasshopper, Eager Beaver, Swindler Q. Fox, Swami Salami, Henrietta Hen, Muscles Muskrat and Sherlock Hound.
And of course let’s not forget Dippy Dwarf who runs the Dwarf Waldorf Hotel for the animal friends.  The Dwarf Waldorf Hotel sets the stage for some fun antics and conversations between the variety of animal characters with occasional musical numbers.  This is a simple and gentle children’s show that is a joy for people of all ages.”

Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
