    Ok, now I'm MAD. I was in barnes and noble the other day, and I saw some NEW cartoon Disney DVDS of HDL, of Donald and of Goofy.

    WHY does Disney think these will sell ( a fact I am NOT disputing *) but new Ducktales DVD would NOT Sell?

    (*Why should I care? They could sell BOTH.)

    The cartoon shorts on the DVDs are not new they are older shorts.

    Are these the DVDs you saw?

    Yup, that's them. You're right, in THIS case they ARE selling both!

    Sorry for jumping to conclusions like that.

    I've watched some of the shorts with Donald and HDL. Man, are they funny them giving Donald hell. My favorite is "Donald's Golf Game" and "Mr. Duck Steps Out".

    Donald Duck is my all-time favorite character.

    Are these "reruns" of Quack Pak and Goof Troup, which Disney could hardly get people to watch for free on tv that they expect people to pay good money for?

    I hope that works out for them.

    These are the shorts Disney made back during the period of the 1930's I think.

    They're fun to watch, Huey, Dewey and Louie made their first appearances here. The first short they were on is "Donald's Nephews". I love watching the old ones where they'd spar with Donald, it was quite funny to watch.

    But it is FAR too late to create back ducktales two. After all, Ducktales was WAY back in the 1980's.

    Sigh. ILLOGICAL ILLOGICAL. PLEASE EXPLAIN.

    My god, Sharon. Your ignorance knows no bounds. I refuse to believe your this stupid.

    The original Disney cartoons of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s are classics and that have absolutely stood the test of time. These have Walt's own personal stamp on them and they were made by the best artists and animators of Hollywood's golden age. These cartoons helped to make the Disney company what they are today and gave the world such cartoon superstars as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Pete, the nephews, Chip and Dale...I could go on. These cartoons were the first, and are still the best. Disney has always been pround of these cartoons, it's their heritage.

    Ducktales was popular in it's day, and there's no denying it was an important television show. But it's nowhere near the level of Disney's classic theatrical shorts. Disney has no intention of bringing back Ducktales, just like they have no intention of bringing back Rescue Rangers, Gummi Bears, Talespin or Darkwing Duck. But they have released all that stuff on DVD, so at least they're not ignoring these series completely, or trying to make like they don't exist - which is what you seem to be insinuating.

    Seriously Sharon, you haven't a bloody clue as to what your talking about.

    Friend, I must of watched some of those cartoons on "The Wonderful World of Color' on our old black and white TV. I understand why people would want to share them with their kids and grandkids. They are wonderful cartoons.

    But there IS an 80's craze currently going on (Care Bears, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake) and I don't get why Disney is allowing the grass to grow under their feet. disney seemed to be consiontrating too much on the Old and the New and forgetting the Middle.

    Who said it WASN'T? I never said any such thing. I just said I don't understand why they can't do BOTH.

    It's NOT a contest, stupid. They're put out by the SAME PEOPLE. Why is Disney acting as if WB put out Ducktales?

    Disney has no intention of bringing back Ducktales,

    Why the bleep not?

    just like they have no intention of bringing back Rescue Rangers, Gummi Bears, Talespin or Darkwing Duck.

    Why should they? They were no place as popular as Ducktales. Not even in the same ballpark, althought Disney wanted it otherwise.

    But they have released all that stuff on DVD, so at least they're not ignoring these series completely, or trying to make like they don't exist - which is what you seem to be insinuating.

    You are very rude and I wish I understood why this makes you so mad.

    I didn't say anything about Ducktales 2 being created. I was just mentioning these were the shorts Disney made during the 1930's.

    I was just saying they're fun to watch. Don't put words in my mouth that I didn't say.

    I put words YOU didn't say it YOUR mouth? Ha, ha ha! What did YOU do to ME, bud? All I said is those cartoon were old- and that just to point out the flaw in Disney logic. I never dissed them.

    Look you're right about this much: Disney is NOT going to bring back Ducktales. And if they DID, they'd just make Launchpad look dumb again. I'd rather they not bring it back at all then have to put up with THAT again. So just forget I ever said anything.

    STRAYING OFF TOPIC ALERT!

    I OWE DISNEY AN APOLOGY!

    When I said 3D movies did not sell too well, even in the '50's, I assumed erronously that new 3D disney movies were done "old school". You know, goofy paper glasses, still looks lame?

    Turns out movies like "Hannah Montana" are done modern 'IMAX" style, only somebody ELSE must hold the "patent" on the term "IMAX".

    You might want to make it clearer in ads for these movies that you're NOT talking "goofy glasses, still looks lame" 3D, Disney. I can't be the ONLY one who jumped to that conclusion.

    And I'm sorry.

    END OF STRAYING OFF TOPIC ALERT!
