Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to take a moment, if we may, to talk about a little something we like to refer to as magic. Picture this. You're at home, hosting a birthday party for your daughter, and you've just shelled out 50 bucks, so some pathetic loser can pull a mangy rabbit out of a flea market hat. At first, you might wonder to yourself, "How did he do that?" But then you would probably just dismiss it as some sort of a trick. And you know something? You'd be right! It's just a trick. It's an example of what we laughingly refer to as stage magic. We're here to tell you that all stage magic is a fraud, a hoax, a sham. It's all based on deception and, yep, lying. All of it. Sleight of hand... Lies. Transformations... Fraud. Dismemberment... Rip-off! Fake! All are illusions. What we're here to talk about is real magic. We're gonna bring on a guy now who's the real deal, the genuine article. In fact, he taught us everything we know. And he is featured prominently in the next sequence, from the original Fantasia, The Sorcerer's Apprentice. You know, come to think of it, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, is a little guy, who never speaks and just kind of messes everything up, like him. Based on Goethe's 1797 poem Der Zauberlehrling, the segment is the only one retained from 1940's Fantasia. Mickey Mouse as the apprentice of sorcerer Yen Sid who attempts some of his master's magic tricks before knowing how to control them. Mr Stokowski. Just wanted to offer my congratulations, sir. Congratulations to you, Mickey. Aw, gee, thanks. Well, I gotta run now. So long! Watch other parts of movie
