    Sounds like a great idea too me.

    The museum is planned for the Presidio of San Francisco. I'm wondering if some of the pieces that Retlaw Enterprises maintains will be used in the museum there because they could also add something very special to the new park.

    Seeing all the awards Walt Disney received during his lifetime is a truly overwhelming experience.

    Re: Do you want Oswald at Disneyland?

    I would be comfortable with Oswald being represented in some form at Mickey's Toontown, and he could, perhaps, take a larger role in the "It All Started with a Mouse" attraction I proposed in this thread: http://www.micechat.com/forums/showt...perion+Studios.

    I still believe that letting the obscure J. Audubon Woodlore and Humphrey the Bear serve as unofficial ambassadors for the new park makes the most sense, though.

    I really love them! ...and they could all have a place, with Oswald in the "Studios" and Ranger Woodlore & Humphrey in the "Park" perhaps

    That Japanese Oswald merchandise is cute as hell! I still don't know if Disney could market him here all that well, but he's a cute character.

    I like Oswald, but have any of you thought of the implications having Oswald as a major Disney character would have? It would no longer be "started by a mouse" for example.

    Mickey Mouse would no longer be the first Disney character. Oswald outdates him.

    Its weird old Disney is marketable there, the Orange Bird from the Tropical Serenade was marketed there in2005, and once while researching about Epcot Horizons, they had car cigarrete lighters ( I think) , and radio knobs, etc, with Horizons and old Epcot logos. Strange


    As for Oswald, maybe before they market him they should do an exhibit at the Disney Gallery, then from guests reaction to him on the banners outside the gallery, they could decide to market him, or make limited merchandise.

    I think that would be a great idea. Maybe show some old animation cells or something. Explain the history of the character and why he is so important to Disney history.

    Would animation cells for Oswald still exist? They rarely saved them in those days...

    I don't think it would work to bring Oswald into the parks/merchandising. But it's nice Disney got him back.

    but Walt became famous because of Mickey, the Disney empire was started by a Mouse.

    I disagree, just because Oswald is back, doesn't take away all the time that Mickey Mouse was there. I believe that Walt Disney credited his success to the popularity of Mickey Mouse. On the introduction to his television show Walt spoke the words "it all started with a mouse". I don't think that changes. Mr. Disney did the television show to promote Disneyland. Disneyland helped promote Mickey Mouse also. It was a great team. Mickey Mouse is to some people the symbol of Disneyland. One in the same. Oswald does not change that. He (Oswald) is kind of like the prodigal son.
