A friend recently brought it to my attention that Shreveport gets a shout-out in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. It makes sense since the movie is set in New Orleans. I haven’t seen the cartoon (yet) but in this clip the Frog Prince meets a Cajun lightening bug from the bayou named Ray. When the Frog mentions he’s from a land far, far away, Cajun Ray quips, “Oh, are you from Shreveport!?”
Hilarious. Even the creators at Disney understand the remoteness of Shreveport.
Enjoy for yourself.
