New Disney shorts coming soon! (re-revised again)

Sorry to report that we made yet another little mistake yesterday when we re-revised our announcement that Disney had announced a series of all-new short cartoons. We said that the titles of the shorts would be Disney feature film titles mashed up with famous stage productions, and this is not the case. In fact, it’s such a silly idea that we deserve to be brought up on charges for not having questioned it in the first place.

Instead, the title of each of these parody shorts will be a "mashup" of a classic Disney film and a famous non-Disney film. For example, "Tangled" might be combined with Troma’s "The Toxic Avenger," giving us "The Tangled Avenger."

Disney hopes that fans will enjoy trying to puzzle out what the original film and play were and what the parody will be like from the "mashup" title and then tune in to see what it’s like. Our yet-again-revised sources deep within Disney report that titles currently in production include:

    Crouch Tiger – Peter’s Dragon, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice in Wonderland, The Monkey’s Uncle Buck, There’s Something About Mary Poppins, and the grammatically incorrect That Darn Cat People.

  2. Liar says:

    Our official misinformation sources tell us that two of the above titles have been replaced! The new titles: Planet of the Ups, and Bambi Bambi Bang Bang.

  3. Liar says:

    @Mike:

    I hear that Crouching Tigger, Hidden Pooh was originally under consideration. I think There’s Something about Mary Poppins is a wonderful idea — I’ll immediately forward your suggestion to someone at random.

  4. Mike says:

    Gone With the Wind in the Willows was shelved back in 1986, but was still a good idea.

    I just realized how badly I butchered the Crouching Tiger title in my earlier post. I’m a murderer.

  5. Mike says:

    Apple Dumpling Gangs of New York was hard to watch. Very brutal.
