You know what would be cool? - - Marry Oswald to DCA as the mascot for a "Walt Disney's California" park - - with the Hyperion Studios and all built on site as recently discussed elsewhere - - and why not get Diane to move her Walt Disney museum down there too?
Suddenly the place would have a presence and purpose!
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.

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.

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.
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.
