You Want It All But You Can't Have It


My kid is currently working his way through the Epic Mickey series, and has there ever been a video game so gorgeous to look at that is so boring to play?  The camera doesn't go where you want it to, the controls are janky, and all you do is paint objects blue or green.  That's it.

I really really wanted to love the first one back in 2010 but I played for a weekend and never went back.

The storyline is right up our alley too-  basically there is a corrupt bad Disneyland called Wasteland where all the forgotten characters go that Mickey and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit have to make right.

It looks amazing:

 But it's just..so....boring to play.

There are some images that stick with me though, like the Small World clock boss:

and the bit where it's revealed that there are actually many different iterations of Pete, including Peg-Leg Pete, Black Pete, and Small Pete, among others.  But mostly it seems like a wasted opportunity.


The original concept art for the game was one of the early inspirations for this blog, so let's leave on a high note and imagine the game as it could have been:

Bring Pooh Corner to Disney Plus, you cowards

Recess was such a good social philosophy cartoon that a group of passionate fans made a live-action sequel.

Bah, humbug


Well Thanksgiving is over, which means we don't get a single day to recuperate before the Christmas shopping madness begins.

Disney Plus has the third-best Christmas Carol movie of all time* The Muppet Christmas Carol available to stream, so here are some reasons why people still love this movie:

Treat yourself this Thanksgiving




Instead of bland, flavorless pies made of useless garbage like "pumpkin," "pecans," or "apples," why not enjoy a cool, refreshing Dole Whip this holiday?  One taste and you'll say "Whip: It Good."

It's only been out for two weeks, but not only does Disney Plus kill creativity, it has also ruined the Marvel Universe.

Don't share this because Lasseter would get soooo steamed


Disney Twitter has been talking about the 1995 short Runaway Brain recently, as supposedly John Lasseter hated the cartoon and wanted it permanently exiled to the Disney Vault?

I don't care, any excuse to watch the show again.

The Face On The Milk Carton


The great Disney Comics Randomness blog has some examples of a sadly underappreciated media format:



Apparently these are a thing in Norway, but other countries have them too:

DuckTales comics on the Donald Duck Orange juice cartons

  Who wants to see some depressing missing person when you could read the adventures of Scrooge and the gang over your morning bowl of Wheaties?  

The concept reminds me of the similarly unloved and unmourned Ralston-Purina Morning Funnies Cereal:

Any surface that can have comics printed on it SHOULD have comics printed on it is my belief, and I'm willing to die on this hill.

Brave New World


Here's how I know we are living in the stupidest timeline:  I just gleefully installed the latest corporate spyware into 6 different devices because I am so excited that I can watch Gargoyles whenever I want.   The President of the United States is committing crimes live on television, entire cities are drowning, the children have become blase about school shootings but hey, I can pay to watch The Disney Afternoon AND The Marvel Action Hour!


Anyway, Disney Plus is great and you should get it.

I never got to meet him, but Tom was someone I tried really hard to emulate when I started this dumb blog years ago.  Comics won't be the same without him.


I can't get enough of these Defunctland videos.

Tell the MacArthur people to make my grant out to "Cash."



BILLION DOLLAR VIDEO GAME IDEA:

Street Fighter 2, only the fighters are black and white cartoon characters. 

Oswald, Betty Boop, Krazy Kat and Ignatz, Felix, Popeye, throw in Cuphead for the kids.  Maybe make Bosko an unlockable bonus fighter.


Proof of Concept:

You know you'd play this

Scorsese's New York Times piece on the subject.

For what it's worth I've seen every damn one of the Marvel movies and all the Star Wars too and I still think Scorsese is correct here.  Sometimes you just want a Big Mac but then don't try and tell me it's fine dining, ya know?

Where your eyes don't go.


Where your eyes don't go a filthy scarecrow waves its broomstick arms
and does a parody of each unconscious thing you do.




When you turn around to look, it's gone. Behind you,
on its face, it's wearing your confused expression.
