Some Happy for Thanksgiving

Wayback Wednesday picspam: 
Johnny preparing to greet fans in Sun Valley 
this past summer after his stellar performances 
of “Schindler’s List” and “Army of Me.” 
As always, he was kind, patient, funny, and made 
each fan feel as if he had come all the way 
to Sun Valley just to see them.

"A Little Sparkle Never Hurts!"

Johnny in his very sparkly spot
for Dora the Explorer’s “Ice Skating Spectacular,” 
which airs this coming Monday, November 25, 
at 7 pm EST / 6 pm EST on Nickelodeon. 
He looks amazing, even beyond the gorgeous costume!

UPDATE! Gif tweeted by Johnny: 
“Had such fun with @bethenny today! 
See our interview Thursday! Check your local listings! 
Bonus pic below!

So this is another one-hit wonder blog because Nickelodeon posted their video late last night promoting Johnny’s upcoming guest-star appearance on Dora and it was immediately obvious that we would need a ridiculous amount of screencaps squeezed from the barely 60 seconds of video provided to get us through until this thing actually airs and OMG it’s so cute that no one could even deal with it last night. Also it pleases me no end to see people tweeting about it with the hashtag #familyfriendly. We have long memories here in the Land of the Ice King.

Val Oliveira, a volunteer drama teacher from São Paulo, Brazil, is one of those people.
