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

Sorry to report that we made yet another in our long series of mistakes yesterday when we re-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 movies, and this is not the case. In fact, it’s such a silly idea that because we didn’t question it in the first place, we’re going to go drown ourselves in the bathtub as soon as we’re done with this post. (Seriously, we’ve had about all we can take of this from us.)

Instead, the title of each of these parody shorts will be a "mashup" of a classic Disney film and a famous book title. For example, "Tangled" might be combined with Ray Bradbury’s "Something Wicked This Way Comes," giving us "Something Tangled This Way Comes."

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 at-this-point-obviously-completely-unreliable sources deep within Disney report that titles currently in production include:
