I've no idea who that impostor is but he is decidedly not Mr. Milne and Mr. Shepard's very British Pooh Bear.
But it appears we are in the minority - "In addition to the stylized Disney Pooh, Disney markets Classic Pooh merchandise which more closely resembles E.H. Shepard’s illustrations. It is estimated that Winnie the Pooh features and merchandise generate as much revenue as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto combined."
Robin Hood. A fox simply is a rediculous idea to assume the role of the famous outlaw/good guy in tights - especially when the character wasn't even previously recognizable and popular like Mickey and friends. I am not a happy camper, or a merry man.
To Boldly Go Where No MiceChatter Has Gone Before!
I gotta say I love the Tinkerbelle that flies over the castle and is in the POD, but the way they market her today is just obnoxious. You can't go anywhere without seeing a Tinkerbelle clothing item or accessory. I was never a fan of her character in movies or literature either, she just seems like she's mean for no reason.
STITCH!! Mean, spiteful, annoying! And he is not suppose to be a protagonist (like Cruella).
I think you mean an antagonist. A protagonist is a hero/someone on the good side.
I don't get the Lilo and Stitch haters. Stitch is amazingly funny, though the in-park Stitch costume is stupid, and Lilo is such an accurate representation of those with disorders on the Autism/Asperger's spectrum. She makes me happy!
As for my least favorite character? Anything from High School Musical and the current crop of Disney Channel live-action young adult shows. Oy.
The Right Honorable Count Boogie Bonz of Random, at your service.
I agree. It's terribly difficult for me to find Alice merchandize, there is a TON of chesire cat stuff but the main character from that film gets nada.
But back to the topic at hand...
1. The no eye having clown looking, horn blowing freaks from the WDW Spectromagic, I believe they are called Spectromen? I don't know but I will purposely avoid the parade so I don't have to look at them.
Here is a bad photo of them. *shivers*
Other than that I would have to say I'm really not fond of the Pooh characters, they just seem corny to me. I like the ride but there is just something that doesn't wow me about them.
Oh goodness - those creep me out! I agree these are terrible. I like how cute Winnie the Pooh looks, but I don't know.. something weird there. There are alot of characters I dislike, but then I think " what's so terrible about them? " and I like them again!
