    Talking Look familier to anyone?

    A buddy of mine found this TV series in a bargain bin for 5$. We got a good laugh watching the cheesy 80s animation but then the credits rolled and guess what theme park they decided to plagiarize in the end credit artwork!

    I can see the Mark Twain, and the castle obviously but if you look real closely you can see many other nods to Disneyland.

    I just thought this was funny and wanted to share.

    I used to watch that cartoon all the time when I was a kid. I guess I never really paid attention to the closing credits. Definitely looks like there could be some "nods" to the Disneyland / Disneyworld there.

    I think I even spotted a Wave Swinger.

    I used to watch that show. To be fair though, if I remember right the kids entered the D&D world through an amusement parks ride or something, right? I don't think they "plagiarized" Disneyland, I think they just put a bunch of theme parks elements together, while using Disney for inspiration.

    Always wondered if Ralph Malph and Nicholas Bradford ever worked again.

    Oh Man... D&D Used to LOVE that show! (Even though it was cheesy). Never did notice the Disneyland reference though.

    Maybe a little "inspiration", but I wouldn't say plagerize.

    BUT, look at the credits, Russi Taylor also is the THE voice of Minnie Mouse!

    Maybe "plagiarize" is to strong a term but I see at least 3 things that are signature Disney and a few more that are more generic but also have their place in Disney parks.

    I was born in 1980 but I never heard of this show till Saturday. Sucks because I know I would have loved it.
