    The 100th message in this thread! Woo-hoo!

    Anyway, Daniel, it's ironic that you mention people thinking that Muppets are Disney and Pixar is Disney when they're not, but then you wrote this...

    <<Also look at movies like Shrek and Ice Age. Their merchandise was seen all over the place and they are disney.>>

    Sorry, but those two are NOT Disney! LOL! Shrek is DreamWorks (Disney's fiercest competitor), and Ice Age is 20th Century Fox. Easy mistake, I know. But I just have to laugh! ;)

    "Ogres are like onions."
    "They're smelly?"
    "They get all old and green and grow funny hairs?"
    "No! Ogres have layers, onions have layers, og- we have layers!"
    "... You know, not everyone likes onions. Why not cake. Cake's got layers!"
    "Ogres are not like cakes. We're like onions!"
    "How 'bout a nice parfait! Ain't nobody not like a nice parfait. You here anybody sayin', "Hey, you! You want some parfait?" "No, man, I hate them parfaits." You don't hear that."

    Ah, something like that. That scene cracks me up!

    I love donkey, but I don't think he would've worked without Shrek.

    sorry bout that chilly down. I actually meant to say they weren't.

    the point I was making by bringing them up is that though they have no affiliation with Eisner and the folks at Mousewitz they still managed to have no trouble getting plenty of exposure.

    Thanks for pointing out my mistake though. That's what I get for posting after a few bloody mary's.

    No problem. ;) I thought that's what you probably meant, but I didn't want to assume it. Your argument makes a whole lot more sense with the word "aren't" there.

    God.. I'm the only one here who actually LOVED Shrek. That and Monsters Inc were the best movies of that year. jimmy Neutron (which was also nominated for the Oscar) was pretty good, but hardly Oscar worthy. (I especially loved Carl... don't know quite why...)

    As always.

    Ditto hurt, but ditto don't.

    Otherwise, that toe hurt, but that toe don't.

    Sorta like "Knock Knock." "Who's there?" "Roosevelt." "Roosevelt who?" "Roosevelt nice, but Gladyss velt nicer."
