Good morning! This day in Disney History, July 12th, 1961: "Nikki, Wild Dog of the North" directed by Jack Couffer and Don Haldane is released. A live-action adventure family film, based on the book "Nomads of the North" by James Oliver Curwood. It's about a half-dog, half-wolf, an orphaned bear cub and a French-Canadian hunter in the gold rush era in the Yukon. The film was a joint effort between Canada's Cangary productions and Disney. An all Canadian crew and cast were used and it was filmed near Banff, Alberta.
Nikki, Wild Dog of the North has absolutely breathtaking animal and nature photography and tons of actions scenes. Especially forward-thinking for its time, are its declaration that Indians don't deserve to be treated as slaves, but as equals in the quest to trap animals, and its assertion that dog fights are "cruel, savage, not human, and bloodthirsty."
Some may say that "Benji the Hunted" (1987) has a similar storyline, but in my honest opinion, "Nikki" is much better. I wasn't able to find any info about how this film did in the theaters, so I'm going to take a wild guess and say not very well? It did however win the 1962 Eddie from the American Cinema Editors for Best Edited Special (Documentary).
*Also on this day in 1972:"Now You See Him, Now You Don't" directed by Robert Butler is released.
A sequel to the 1969 film "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes". "Now You see Him, Now you Don't" is a live-action comedy starting a young Kurt Russell, Jim Backus, Ceasar Romero, and Joe Flynn. When Dexter Riley (Kurt Russel) accidentally creates a mysterious spray that makes objects disappear, he becomes the target for a gang of bad guys who want to use it to help in their criminal activities.
A follow-up third installment of the Dexters Riley comedies was also released in in 1975, "The Strongest Man in the World".
Now You See Him, Now You Don't was eventually released on DVD in May of 2004.
Along with its predecessor, Now You See Him, in my opinion, is one of Disney's finest supernatural comedies. It always makes me LOL! Unfortunately, I couldn't find any box office information for this film either. So maybe I'm the only one who actually liked it. HA!

unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. Automated crowd prediction calendars are worthless--the UNFORECAST is where it's at!
Update for the week of Monday, August 25th:
Park hours: DL (9am-10pm weekdays, 9am-12am weekends); DCA (9am-9pm weekdays, 9am-10pm weekends). Since the parks are closing earlier during the week, Fantasmic will only be shown Friday-Sunday, World of Color will be shown at 9pm and the "Magical!" fireworks will be shown at 9:25pm daily (weather permitting).
FYI: this is a last full week to participate in "Legends of Frontierland" in Frontierland as it concludes on Monday, September 1st. Also, the Adventure Trading Company's last day in the jungle will be Monday, August 25 and will move onto a new adventure, so make sure to catch them!
unForecast Crowd Prediction: Expect it to be quiet to moderately busy this week as many schools go back this week, but there's also still quite a few people getting their end of summer vacation in at the Resort before school starts after Labor Day for them. But, reminder that this weekend is the Disneyland Half Marathon, so expect crowds to pick up Thursday and/or Friday as runners and their families come in for this weekend's events. And make sure to keep an eye out for any road closures late Saturday night to mid Sunday morning if you are coming to the Resort this coming weekend!
July was arguably one of the slowest months of the year (some say the Sunday on Independence Day Weekend was the slowest day of the year). However, we saw crowd levels rise Sat Aug 2, and they've been steady through today (Aug 5). With the Socal passes coming good Aug 18, we should see good crowds throughout the end of the month. - Admin Aug 5, 2014 2:23PM
New "Music of Nashville" event coming to the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree running on weekends, starting on July 18. To read more info: click here. - BaseballMickey_CM Jul 9, 2014 11:04AM
So far this summer, Saturdays have been the quietest days of the week due to the Annual Passholder block outs. Today, wait times weren't too bad in both parks, with crowd indexes hovering around 60-70 at DL and 50-60 in DCA. - BaseballMickey_CM Jun 28, 2014 11:24PM
