Besides, giving Steve Jobs input within the Pixar branch, nothing much, it seems.
Are you kidding? In terms of revenue, he is tied with the mouse. In terms of quality, I do not know?
If you men Robert Iger, nothing. But hey, if it ain't broke, right... But if you mean John Lasseter, he is only in charge of Movie Animation and their is significant change in the way he does things.
But the thing is...Eisner did break it.
The latest Goofy short subject paired with National Treasure 2 was a crowd pleaser. I think they'll do more of that. Personally I think Disney should create 2 or more classic character shorts per year. One for the Summer movie season the other for Winter films. It could happen.
Just as long as it brings Disney to how it was before Eisner dismantled the animation department, I'll be one happy camper.
*stomps foot* But I want them! I want them now! *sniffs*
I'd found a few episodes hidden in collection DVDs, but it's just not the same .
I know what you mean! As a true Pooh-o-phile, I respect what the new series has brought to the young generations of today, but I also want them--and us older generations--to see what came before, because if we lose our past, then things could get ugly.
It depends of how you look at it. If you mean quality, yes. If you look at it in terms of dollar signs then, no.
Would love to see more Goofy shorts!
But as Walt himself said, "I make money to make pictures, not make pictures to make money."
I think MOST of the Pooh projects were great. book of Pooh I never saw, and My friends, Tigger and Pooh sounds terrible (and following the Dora model of children's edutainment- which is neither educational nor entertaining). But it's the projects tyhat I respect.
The products, on the other hand... I can respect the dude's popular, but for the love of Pete, they put him on EVERYTHING late 90's, and even today. Why, it was almost uncommon to walk into a Disney store and see Mickey Mouse products. That's gotta tell you something. The last straw was the Pooh dressed up as a Dalmation.
Point taken. But I think personally that this is just Disney's way of saying "We have the stroke to keep Pooh around, whereas the Milne decendants & the Slieshingers [the American distributors of the Pooh products] do not, because we're a notable company".
Last I read Pooh tied with the mouse in revenue.
Probably 'cause of their Playhouse Disney shows that sporadically air back-to-back.
It could very well be a factor.
And that the next generations are roped into enjoying said shows doesn't help.
I don't know. I mean trends come and go.
I still say Pooh Corner was ten times better and actually taught something, unlike the new show now
