... I just had a revelation.

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

Seriously, Gadget? If your thing is the cute/hot girl that can fix your ship just go with her perfectly acceptable human counterpart:

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 never understood that bit.

This. What was that about?


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.

noazark: jedzz: 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.


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.


Or maybe you are thinking about the first movie, which was from the 70's. Jeez...

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."

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

I'm going to see this a hundred times.

And I don't think "canon" ever entered into any of the Disney Afternoon cartoon shows.  They had Rudyard Kipling characters flying planes and battling air-pirates, FFS.
