To settle the simmering Kimba-Simba controversy ("A 'Kimba' Surprise for Disney," July 13), I have a suggestion. Why not resurrect and restore the classic "Kimba, the White Lion" episodes and air them with reasonable fanfare on, say, the Disney Channel? Then everyone can decide whether Disney owes animator Osamu Tezuka appropriate screen acknowledgment. At the same time, Tezuka's groundbreaking series (and its equally engaging, rarely seen sequel, "Leo the Lion") can be exposed to a whole new generation of youngsters and animation buffs.

Now that we're halfway through Season 18, “Dancing With the Stars” has made a nod to ABC's parent company and star Meryl Davis' uncanny resemblance to Jasmine the princess in Disney theme night, which host Tom Bergeron likened to Disney on Ice -- but without the ice! All the original star/pro partnerships are back, to the delight of most. “We're doing some conscious recoupling,” Tom quipped. Though the couple who did not end this evening happily ever after came as a shock: Cody Simpson and Witney Carson.

Costumes from the Tony-winning Broadway production of "The Lion King" now have a permanent home in one of the country's largest museums. The Smithsonian National Museum of American History has acquired objects from the musical's costume wardrobe designed by Julie Taymor. The gift from Disney Theatrical Productions includes items worn by the characters of Simba and the tribal shaman Rafiki. Simba's lion mask and headdress plus Rafiki's costume, custom shoes and hat will join the museum's permanent entertainment collections.

Mama Simba, beaten in recent starts in Arkansas and Illinois, made her return to the West Coast a triumphant one Wednesday with a 5 1/2-length victory in the $50,000 allowancefeature for fillies and mares at Hollywood Park. Ridden by Kent Desormeaux , Mama Simba was timed in 1:21 3/5, four-fifths of a second off the track record for seven furlongs. Brazen, with Chris McCarron aboard, finished second, and Nice Assay, ridden by Laffit Pincay, was third Mama Simba, the 6-5 betting choice, paid $4.

Jason Raize, who played the grown Simba in the original Broadway company of "The Lion King," has died. He was 28. Raize died Feb. 3 in Yass, Australia, southwest of Sydney, according to Chris Boneau, a spokesman for the Disney musical. The cause was suicide, Boneau said. Raize was chosen for the role of Simba, who changes from a callow young lion into the aware adult played by Raize, after a series of grueling auditions before "Lion King" director Julie Taymor and choreographer Garth Fagan.

It's hard not to notice the numerous billboards, bus stop posters and TV ads heralding the arrival of the sequel to the most successful animated film in movie history. But unlike the 1994 box-office hit, which grossed nearly $800 million worldwide, Disney's "The Lion King II: Simba's Pride" will not be opening at a theater near you on Tuesday. Instead, the family film will make its debut at video stores.

I was lying on my bunk half-asleep when my wife shook me and whispered, "There's a lion outside the tent." I sat up slowly and stared at her, running the notion through my head. There's a lion outside the tent. "That's an interesting idea," I said upon careful reflection. "We're not talking theory here," she said. "We're talking teeth and claws." She had seen him through a tent window. I didn't look because I avoid anything I am not familiar with. We didn't have lions in East Oakland.
