In regards to only Universal Studios Hollywood losing license to use Marvel walk-around characters (apparently they will sell off their remaining Marvel merchandise & keep the Marvel Mania store for now)...
The Florida park seems to have more property licenses than Hollywood... such as Harry Potter, Men in Black, Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, Barney, Madagascar, etc.
So do most of the above licenses only apply for Florida, like how Harry Potter can only be in IOA and not USH. Because I'm wondering why USH doesn't bring in characters like Men in Black & Ghostbusters to the park. Beetlejuice usually only appears during the peak season.... SOMETIMES... I should have asked the actor backstage why he infrequently appears as Beetlejuice in the park. Almost as infrequent as the Madagascar characters.
Also, why was the decision made for Curious George to replace the themeing on Nickeoldeon Blast Zone??
USH just seems to be turning to ash since mid-2000. Early 2000 they tried quite a few things. Now there's not much going on. I saw the USH president couple times (I think he's had that position since 1999), I probably should have talked to him more as well.
