The Tiara Talk Show is a YouTube-based podcast focusing on the works of individuals who have been involved with various Disney projects throughout the years. These people can include actors, voice actors, animators, Disney Imagineers, costume designers, make-up artists, musicians, etc. The show is hosted by a woman named Tammy Turner who has been running the show since August 3rd, 2013. In the last year she has had an impressive line-up of guests and allows for a very relaxed, fluid-like interview.
Doug was her latest guest, highlighting him and his work on the 1993 Disney cult classic film “Hocus Pocus”. Doug played the lovable, charming, silly, floppy zombie character ‘Billy Butcherson’. Even though Hocus Pocus just celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, Billy, to this day, remains as one of Doug’s most iconic roles. Fans young and old alike have come to love Doug over the years thanks to Billy, as watching Hocus Pocus has become a common Halloween tradition for many families. Doug has many warm memories and intriguing stories about his time working on Hocus Pocus, including how he auditioned for the role, what it was like to work with one of his own idols Bette Midler, the experience of having real live moths in his mouth (that wasn’t CGI, folks!), the make-up process, and more.
