Subject:        Shakespeare on Disney's The Weekenders

The Toon Disney rebroadcast on June 21 the following episode of the
animated cartoon called The Weekenders.  One of the characters, a teen
girl, has a bust of Shakespeare in her room, and he talks to her in her
dream, reciting some lines after she says he doesn't sound very

Episode 64. Talent Show
gs: Jeff Bennett (Lor's Dad, Mr. Hassenfeld, Shakespeare)

Lor and Tish try out for the annual talent show, where the kids usually
end up embarrassing themselves. Lor is forced into it by a teacher to
help her 'people skills', but Tish really wants to get in. Problem is,
Lor passes and Tish doesn't. Tish gets jealous and refuses to help Lor.
Lor gets help from Tino and Carver and that's all I have to say about
that. Tish ditches her jealousy and helps Lor after Shakespeare talks to
her in a dream. Lor is a hit in the talent show. PHILLIP: Tino's cousin
Phillip showing up for the weekend. Bad for Tino, because he's missing
out on the premiere of Chum Bukkit: The Movie. Phillip was a
vest-wearing geek when they last met 6 years ago. He tries to make
excuses to ditch Phil, but Phil lets him go when he finds out. The
others visit Phillip and find out he's changed. They all end up watching
the movie together.
