Happened upon this old thread from before Duffy launched in the US. Some of the concerns and predictions here are just so spot on, it's almost unsettling. It's interesting how many people were curious what Disney would do and cautiously optimistic, compared to how often they post now. On the contrary, some MiceChatters never wanted him to come to the US in the first place, because he's not a "real" character. Lots of insights. I remember now, too, that this was the thread that brought me back to MiceChat after a long absence. For folks who never saw it, this will surely make a fascinating read:^^
It was only a matter of time before Duffy made Disney take notice.
