    Re: Due to an error Cruella De Vil Disney Dollars Pulled from Inventory

    Cruella merely aspired to mass caninicide. The dogs were later spotted in a local plantation.
    So full of Disney Magic, my eyes are blue.

    Just found that that Cruella DOES still have her smoker in the parks. Have Disney forgotten this or were the Disney Dollars pulled for another reason?

    Now this actually makes a lot more sense. I hope that this, in fact, is the actual reason the distribution was pulled. Also, if the Cruella face character in the Parks has the cigarette holder, then that's good news; she should!

    It saddens me when people want to hold art responsible for alleged social repercussions...
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

I'm not saying that her smoking on a dollar would cause any children to smoke, but it's definitely not in good taste in 2013.
    One thing I've never understood about Disney's stance on this issue: they edit their smoking characters to not smoke anymore because they want the company to have a better image, yet they still allow smoking in the parks. So kids watching people smoke is A-okay, but heaven forbid a fictional character does it! (At least if a character is smoking, you don't suffer from its second-hand smoke.)

    Both those Disney decisions spring from the same motive: profits. They maximize their home video sales by marketing them as child-safe, while at the same time not losing a dime by saying no to in-park smoking.

    One theory to throw out there: perhaps that is because the characters, even if they are villains, can be held up as heroes/role models by the kids. They're not likely to idolize or even pay any attention to Joe Q Public who is smoking by the Matterhorn.

    Also, since there has been a lot of campaigning in the entertainment industry to cut down and/or stop depicting smoking in films, Disney would totally be going against the grain if their characters smoked.

    Miki Mouse or CMHusband could you please post a picture if possible? Thanks.
    Stalking is when two people go for a long romantic walk together but only one of them knows about it.

    How many incidents is this in just the last few years where Disney made misspellings on signs, web sites and printed media? You'd think with the humongous profits they're raking in, they could afford to hire a few proofreaders.

    I still have a few maps sitting at home from the Tomorrowland misspelling earlier this year.

    I can imagine future guidebooks say "Tooday @ Diz-knee-land."
