Mickey Mouse Got A Makeover. But What About Minnie?

You know how our grandparents grew up yelling “Hello, Mickey” back at the TV during cartoon hour? Well, today’s kids seem to view the helium-voiced mascot as more of a logo, or maybe a hat design, than as a lovable character. I guess that didn’t sit well with the higher-ups at Disney, who want their iconic moneymakers to hold not just our attention but our hearts. So Disney is re-imagining Mickey Mouse. Next fall, in a video game called “Epic Mickey,” Nintendo Wii players will have the opportunity to mold their own CGI version of Mickey, who will travel through the Small World ride gone wrong and face a disemboweled robot Donald Duck, among other dilemmas. Mickey’s appearance will change through his adventures, with the way gamers make Mickey behave. In this universe, Mickey will be a rascally character, a la Bart Simpson, which was his original persona. Sounds great. But, uh, what about Minnie? And Donald? And Goofy? And Daisy? After the jump, we suggest how to bring them into 2009 as well.. [NY Times] Keep reading »

Poor Strawberry Shortcake! Make The Cartoon Makovers Stop!

Why do things have to change? With the news that Strawberry Shortcake went and got a makeover, we were upset. How could you take a girl who looked like a ragamuffin and turn her into a tween queen? Seriously, Strawberry looks like the most popular Mean Girl in her class. And now there’s word that the Care Bears are supposedly getting a new look too, and they’ll soon be less plump with longer eyelashes (because even bears look better when they’re thin and have eyelash extensions). Mickey Mouse is next. Disney better not reduce his ear size. Flaws are what make the man…er, mouse. [NY Times] Keep reading »
