Hope you all had a great weekend. Here are some great posts you may have missed.
Kevin Kidney found a 1961 fashion photo shoot that featured Disneyland as the background. They just don’t write copy like they used to, and what happened to Mickey’s body?
DisUnplugged has a very fascinating look at a lawsuit Disney faces over the copyright for one of the songs it uses in the Hoop-Dee-Do0 Musical Revue. Copyright has been extended too long, IMHO. But I don’t think the parody defense would actually work here.
This analysis of the 2010 Disney Corporate Responsibility report by Smarter Planet is insightful. There’s a lot Disney is doing right, but they’re still failing to meet some of their own goals.
Finally, CartoonBrew highlights a video interview with Disney animator Andreas Deja. We hardly get a chance to know the people behind the Disney magic, it’s great when they do interviews like this.
