Treguna, Makoidees, Trecorum, Sadis Dee

When I was little, my brothers and I use to drag our parents to the armor room.

Now, apart from some hints of nostalgia and fond memories of Bed-knobs and Broomsticks, it's petty dull.

And in case you were curious, the cats here are far superior to the ones found at the MoMA.

And now you know where Walt Disney got the idea...
