Magic Cantina

The Magic Cantina: Allons-y, Gonz-o

The Magic Cantina is the Disney Studio’s communal character cafeteria, where all of the characters now owned by the Walt Disney Company crossover to share a sensible meal.  The management of The Magic Cantina were so excited to hear that the Tenth Doctor’s episodes of Doctor Who have been picked up for broadcast on Disney XD, that they issued him an exclusive dining pass lanyard so that he might be able to dine with the other patrons of The Magic Cantina!

About a month ago, Gonzo The Great was appointed as the official greeter of The Magic Cantina, and in Issue #23 of our cafeteria newsletter (“Vaguely Familiar”), we witnessed Gonzo lamenting the fact that The Muppet Show was no longer on television.  In a moment of weakness, he made a “wish” to be back on television again, which can sometimes be a dangerous idea when around all of the assorted Disney characters*.

It was officially announced earlier in the week that Gonzo and the rest of his Muppet pals will be making a return to prime-time television this fall…but we trust that Gonzo will still be able to make time to fulfill his greeting responsibilities for The Magic Cantina!

About the author

Brent And Mark

One is the brain behind Word of the Nerd's "That Time On..." series of features, the other is...well...Mark. Together they have yet to come up with a clever nick name, so for now, they will just be known as "Brent and Mark"

About the author

Mark Driscoll

When not ranting about the current state of his favorite comics or working on The Magic Cantina, Mark spends a majority of his time renovating his newly purchased, 120 year old Victorian house. Badly. He is very bad at talking about himself in the third person, as he thinks it make him sound pretentious.

About the author

Brent Kincade

Brent Kincade was born under the sign of Pertwee and has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.)

His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984.

Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help".

He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent is the creator of #ThatTimeOnDrWho, #ThatTimeOnStarTrek, #ThatTimeOnStarWars and co-creator of "The Magic Cantina". Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
