I’m not going to rant and bad mouth the Disney channel. But I truly do miss the TRUE DISNEY channel. Its just not Disney anymore. Not that I have anything against a childrens network. But it just seems like nickelodeon with a Disney label slapped onto it these days. The way I see it… Our children growing up watching this channel have NO IDEA who any of the Disneyland characters are UNTIL they go to Disneyland. Even then, you have to explain who they are taking a picture with. Whatever happened to ducktales, tale-spin, rescue rangers, dark-wing duck, or even the ORIGINAL Disney cartoons with Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Donald… or the Goofy How-to cartoons? Its quite pitiful if you think about it. (speaking of which, anyone know where i can pick these up on DVD or Bluray?).
So, im going to sit down for a full day, and count each time I see an original Disney character on the disney channel. The Mickey head logo does not count. Its no wonder the children have no idea who mickey is until they meet him @ the park… Who wants to bet I dont see any on the channel?
