dshimel, you are so right, i hang my head in shame... Okay, let me (vainly?) attempt to re-route this discussion: OMG! I love all the Disney characters so much, but I really really love the ones that originated as part of DL/WDW attractions like Big Al and Figment and uhhhh.... can you name some more?
Leotta, The Red Head, The Terminteator, Chilli and Clair de Room..... uhhhhh
I always quote ironic statements from Comendy Central cartoons when I'm trying to make a serious point.
Far from Disney classic characters...(refereing to SP)
Besides no one remembers the good Eisner did, I am sure we can think of some *hums the Jeopardy theme* well I give him credit for ABC (now in the crapper except for Desperate Housewives) and hey he brought back the Wonderful World of Disney (now off the air) and hey he added Epcot (which was promptly overhauled) and MGM Studios (about to lose its's name)
...but otherwise, otherwise- I got nothing drats!
I don't particularly like the Characters but Disneyland wouldn't be the same without them. I think that they add to the ambiance of the park.

You know, yeah, I like some of the Disney characters in their movies, and some in dark rides. But I tend to avoid the ones that can walk by themselves. Although, I do remember seeing Sleeping Beauty, and the CM playing her looked familiar, but I had to stop myself from approaching Briar Rose and saying "I know you..."
I do appreciate the original characters. Figment got a raw deal. And, oddly enough, I have wanted some plushies from PotC of the dog, and the cranky kitties, and maybe the dirty pigs... And I was furious that I could not find a single Flower plush at WDW, which has every Mickey and Pooh under the sun. And no psychedelic Tigger from the Heffalumps and Woozles scene?
