    A Hippie in the House of Mouse (Jim Henson at Disney, 1980)

    You know I could have sworn it was later than that! Meant to ask @Geekhis Khan - did Mysterious Cities of Gold go any differently ITTL? It aired on Nickelodeon in the US '86-'90.

    A Hippie in the House of Mouse (Jim Henson at Disney, 1980)

    So even the brilliant Bernie Brillstein can make and admit to making a duffer. Sounds like he got a sweet deal from it though, and City Slickers is a fun movie OTL. Was Ghostbusters II like the OTL one where the ‘magic’ had somehow gone? Does that butterfly the cartoon? What about the ride...

    Fawcett comics survives

    Perhaps Eastman and Laird work for Atlas instead? It’s not as if anthromorpic animal heroes are unknown before the Turtles so maybe they invent another team?

    A Hippie in the House of Mouse (Jim Henson at Disney, 1980)

    I’d still like an American company to take on Gatchaman and do a proper sub of all the episodes without changing the names ‘Dirk Daring’ or other such silliness. Battle of the Planets is very cool, but it does take some liberties with the source material for 70-80’s audiences, as the timeline...

    There and Back Again: The English Journeys of Catherine of Aragon.

    Nice update. Perhaps the English should push into Scotland now? Claim some of the lowlands as a buffer zone against raiding, maybe install a puppet King if they do not claim the country for England.

    A Time For Greatness: The Alternate Presidency of John F. Kennedy and beyond

    Very interesting update there- Vietnam won by the Vietnamese without escalation would be a heck of a win. Is the US navel blockading the North? I suspect Hoover is going to have an ‘accident‘ or a major scandal of his own. Hopefully the Mercury Atlas 10 disaster will not effect the Space...

    Ohhhh now there is a change!

    WI: The Enterprise completes its five year mission (Star Trek survives for 5 seasons)

    Well maybe not JMS himself (I like B5 and I think it has an important place in TV history), but perhaps someone who is willing to 'sell' a multi-series plot arc to the Exec's. Voyager exploring the post Dominion War Gamma Q could be interesting esp if the cure for the Founders Virus is not...

    WI: The Enterprise completes its five year mission (Star Trek survives for 5 seasons)

    Thing with a six season TNG (1987-1992) is it will leave the DS9 carrying Trek when it was weak. TNG Season 7 was not that bad- it won an Emmy afterall so someone liked it. If Season 1 and 2 go better then the lot of the early writers are not sacred off by the Lawyer/Roddenberry which will have...

    Kentucky Fried Politics: A Colonel Sanders Timeline

    Chapter 73: August 1995 – November 1995 Meredith as VP? Would make for an interesting election ticket one thinks. The Flintstones - ITTL me might have watched it or ignored it like the OTL me did. Lynwood Drake is going to die in hospital I bet. Kaplan is correct about not overdoing the...

    Kentucky Fried Politics: A Colonel Sanders Timeline

    So I might be a little behind here... Chapter 72: May 1995 – August 1995 I suspect Wenneker von Brunn will get picked up in the security sweep anyway. Not a good look there Trump fleeing like that, will come back to haunt you I bet. Quick catch of the sniper- nice work, if luck. Bounce for...

    A Hippie in the House of Mouse (Jim Henson at Disney, 1980)

    Is there ways Disney parks can save money like bulk ordering stationary, investing in early networking/email for memos, solar and wind power, less duplicate staff roles, trimming middle management, or things like perhaps cheaper food/drink to drive demand up?

    WI: The Enterprise completes its five year mission (Star Trek survives for 5 seasons)

    Yeah well good luck 'saving' Czechoslovakia Reagan, nowt you can do there without causing WWIII. Cambodia might be easier but can you invade there and S. Vietnam? As for the economy are you prepared to trash the country just so some industrialists can make a few more million which will never...

    A Queen Twice Over: Mary Tudor the Elder Marries Francis I of France

    Well Talbot has gotten what she wanted, lets hope Henry does not get too disapointed if its not a son she will soon be carrying as he's been known to wander if bored.... Wonder who had to 'service' Henry?

    That was well done there @Oxander a very interesting Alt world indeed.

    A Hippie in the House of Mouse (Jim Henson at Disney, 1980)

    So they have a few debts and costs, but this should be structured as long term debt I would have thought and thus be paid over over years oif not decades. The debt will be finely calculated against income and I doubt any planner will not build in contingency funds. Valencia’s debt is nothing...

    A Time For Greatness: The Alternate Presidency of John F. Kennedy and beyond

    I am glad the King 'I have a Dream' speech made it through the butterflies, it is such a strong speech. Hoping Nixon will be less prominent ITTL, just to change things up and allow another figure to challenge JFK. S. Korean's in Vietnam? Well that add a new dimension.

    WI: The Enterprise completes its five year mission (Star Trek survives for 5 seasons)

    I wonder if President Thich Tri Quang will face a coup or an assassination attempt? I still want to see how Regan deals with Vietnam(s) and if it becomes his 'white whale'. Muskie probably another year to see the results of his policies. Unfortunately he has not got that, and the new...

    A Time For Greatness: The Alternate Presidency of John F. Kennedy and beyond

    It is good JFK survived and his VP had no major crisis during his spot in charge- it will in fact look good on the CV. Wonder if JFK can defuse the Sino-Soviet split? The Crusade against the KKK will be an interesting read.

    A Hippie in the House of Mouse (Jim Henson at Disney, 1980)

    Disneyland Valencia is starting out life in a much, much different position to EuroDisney - I predict that while there will be somethings not done on site and something will break, the vast majority of it will be a done for a 1992 opening and will be a hit- even if it takes a while to make the...
