hardinparamedic: A good gauge on whether a furry should be avoided is if the amount of Gadget porn on their hard drive is greater than zero.

Seriously. I never got the whole appeal of Rule 34 on any cartoon I grew up with. It's just...creepy.


static.comicvine.comYou were saying?

/also, pixar-style Jessica Rabbit = win!

I'm still waiting for the Rescue Rangers to infiltrate the Kingdom Hearts series.

The above choices are also acceptable, but "live-action Gadget" makes me instantly picture Felicia Day in a purple jumpsuit.

Mentalpatient87: Leishu: ... I just had a revelation.

Kayleigh from Firefly/Serenity is basically a human version of Gadget.

I don't know, wasn't Gadget more "Den Mothery?" Or maybe I didn't watch enough Firefly.

/wonder if there's any good Princess Sally cosplay..


Was she? It has been a while.

noazark: This series was greenlit a few years into the Eisner era, and hit The Disney Channel on the heels of the success of The Rescuers Down Under.  IMHO, Katzenberg & company actually wanted to make a Rescuers TV series -- but stopped just short of using Bernard and Miss Bianca for the leads ... opting for Chip & Dale, instead.


BS. Rescuers Down Under came out more than a year after Rescue Rangers debuted, and was hardly a success.

I was hoping I'd never hear about Ray Jones again. This is sure to drag him out of whatever pit he's been living in lately.

From what I remember she was the brains of the operation. Makes sense, who else was gonna be in charge? The fly? Jack and his cheese abuse problem?

If this is a success, we get a Darkwing Duck movie.

I'm going to see this a hundred times.

I recall her being the brains, of course, but I seem to remember Jack being a father figure to her. *shrug*

You could be right. I honestly didn't watch that much of the show. It was on a cable channel and we were poor.
 
2014-02-01 02:06:54 PM

Confabulat: Chip & Dale are supposed to be a nuisance to Donald Duck and they don't wear clothes. I never accepted that TV show as canon.


I'm confused.

You're really being snobby about an animated show? I honestly can't comprehend that anyone out there feels strongly enough about either the show, or the donald duck comics, to feel this way. It's just so incredibly stupid.

It is only an opinion ... and I'd carefully couched it as such.


BTW, production lead times on animated features exceed those of TV cartoons.  These would have been in-development at the same time, regardless of the fact that the TV show was released first.

Eisner and Katzenberg were all about 'synergy' and exploiting every avenue of $$$-making.  But it wasn't until the 1990's-proper that the "cheapquel-madness" began.

It shouldn't strain credulity that C&D:RR at the very least might've started-out with the pitch: "we'd like a TV cartoon that is like The Rescuers ... but not."

The BS was your opening sentence ("This series was greenlit a few years into the Eisner era, and hit The Disney Channel on the heels of the success of The Rescuers Down Under"), which, as written, was presented as fact and cannot possibly be true, for the reasons I cited before.

You are correct in regards to Eisner, synergy, and lead time. And of course it's possible that the Rescuers was brought up as an abstract importation. But there is quite a bit of information out there on the creation of RR, and none of it cites either Rescuers movie as a direct inspiration. As carefully couched as your opinion was, it's not supported by the facts.

No.  I'm talking about the Eisner/Katzenberg-greenlit animated feature The Rescuers Down Under, and Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers being in development simultaneously -- and noting that they ***MIGHT'VE*** ... ***COULD'VE*** ... just ***POSSIBLY*** BOTH started out as intended follow-ups to the 1977 Disney movie.

Given what happened later on in the Eisner era of DTV "cheapquels" and spin-off TV series for every-other feature, I honestly don't see what makes that theory so outlandishly unbelievable.

They're going to set it in an alternate universe and really piss off the hard core Chip & Dale fans. There's also going to be something about a man-eating cow.


So it's going to be a crossover?

CraicBaby,

as stated in my post from over six hours before yours:

Okay.

I concede wholeheartedly that my personal theory regarding the possibility of a shared genesis for C&D:RR and TRDU -- which was based entirely upon speculation, on my part -- was, and is, 100% factually incorrect.

To anyone who may have been swayed to give serious consideration to my entirely-discredited theory: please accept my humble and sincere apologies for misleading you.  -_-;

There has been some question on the  origin of the  Applecore .. Baltimore gag. Veteran Disney animator  Bill Justice in an interview in the early 1990's claimed that this  memorable bit of business was something that he and the other gagmen had invented specifically for  Donald Applecore.

In fact, the gag was used in  Melody Time (1948) during the  Johnny Appleseed sequence. It is incorporated into the song the pioneers are singing during the  Apple Jubilee. This at least proves that the whole thing didn't originate with the Donald short.

Huh, I always thought it was a cruel schoolyard prank from a bygone era. Like kids in the 50s hucked apple cores at each other. What I never understood is why it splatters on the victims face. What kind of mushy-ass apples were they eating?
