    I'm not sure how long the show lasted but it was short lived. For anyone interested I found a video of the show on Myspace TV.

    i would love to see DHS with characters unique to the park. it would certainly help prevent a furthered overgeneralized experience of the four parks.

    Re: Should Hollywood Studios add more non-Disney characters to the park?

    There were so many great ideas for Disney-MGM, proposed in the early 1990s, that fell by the wayside. These ideas fit into one of two general themes

    * Golden Age of Hollywood / 1930s - 1940s

    * Celebration of Cinema

    had they all been built the park would have had a coherent theme, something it has been steadily losing for the past decade.

    Dick Tracy's Crimestoppers and Great Muppet Movie Ride were two of the best rides ever designed. Disney owns partial rights to the former and full rights to the latter and both could fairly easily be realized.

    The planned Maroon Studios / Roger Rabbit area would of course have been highly appropriate and would have given the park its mascot just as Mickey is for the Magic Kingdom, the way Figment was for Epcot, and way the Yeti perhaps is becoming for Animal Kingdom. However of course the legalities here are more complex...still now with Iger in charge, if the will was there, the Eisner-era arguments with Spielberg could be laid to rest. But having that will is a bigger question...

    Much as I like Pixar's films and admire their commitment to quality theme park attractions, I would rather have the above attractions any day, than a collection of rides without thematic coherence.

    I'll add my voice for the notion of having Dick Tracy and The Rocketeer back.

    I agree that they seem to ignore certain properties.

    Like remaking movies when you could easily re-release the original. Doesn't cost as much to remaster and re-release.

    But it seems they could do with a little more variety to the characters on the whole, not just Disney-MGM Studios (sorry, i refuse to call it anything else).


    Would it even be physically possible to do a Jessica Rabbit?? Especially with a Roger as he used to be walking around the parks? The scale would be a bit messy

    Maybe a better way to word it is--Characters that are not obviously Disney.

    I remember when they had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle show. They also had a Goosebumps show and haunted maze. That was a lot of fun!
