O.K. the following is a rough draft of what I have in mind concerning how to
format the Character Profiles I spoke of a while ago. I have lots of
information on all of the characters I had in store, but I am really waiting
for the latest issue of THE ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA OF DISNEY'S ANIMATED
CHARACTERS to come out later this month before I settle on any definite
information. I realize that some characters, like Goofy, will be very
complicated while others, like Clara Cluck, will be pretty straight forward.
This is the basic outline of the profile. If you feel any more information
would be of relative importance please advise.
CHARACTER: MICKEY MOUSE
BREED: anthropomorphized mouse
REAL OR FORMER NAMES: Mortimer Mouse
KNOWN RELATIVES: Minnie (wife/girlfriend), Morty & Ferdie Fieldmouse
(nephews), Maisie and Molly (nieces?), Marmaduke, Montie and Morrie
(other nephews), Agatha and Marissa (aunts).
PETS: Pluto the Pup, Bianca the Goldfish, Milton the Cat
(This space used to tell a little about the character's origin, jobs, hobbies,
or whatever information is pertinent.)
INTERESTING OR OBSCURE FACTS:
(This space to tell obscure details like the origin of Huey, Dewey & Louie's
names or merchandising info like Mickey's head is Disney's Logo, etc.)
That's about it. Of course the last two sections will problably be the
longest and will cover a broard range of information. Some editorial
discretion will definitely be necessary to keep it as simple as possible.
This may be suspended a little for Goofy's sake.
Characters of great importance I feel would be worthy of covering are:
Pluto the Pup
Peter & Patricia Pigg
Zeke Wolf (a.k.a. The Big Bad Wolf)
Uncle Scrooge McDuck
The Nephews (Huey, Dewey & Louie)
Morty & Ferdie
The Three Little Pigs (Practical, Fiddler & Fifer)
Figaro the Kitten
Fifi the Peke
Butch the Bulldog
These are the hallmark characters of the Mickey & Donald Universe and I
believe they deserve some respect, even if their entries are relatively brief.
I don't know of any others that should be tackled right away. Perhaps after
these are established and firmed we can work on some of the other supporting
characters and universes. Some may wonder why I've included Peter & Patricia
Pigg or Fifi & Figaro. Concerning the first set, these two were originally a
part of Mickey's career but soon fell by the wayside. They still make
appearances, but are relatively obscure in nature. I felt they are part of
Mickey's legacy and deserve some notice. As to the last two, these are two
very significant pets which belong to Minnie. Both have established ties to
the M&D Universe and are somewhat important (especially Fifi who is the mother
of Pluto's puppies and a significant character in Minnie'n Me).
As for relatively insignificant recurring characters, anyone who wishes to
submit a short 'blurb' about the character (like the one Starback did) please
do so. Perhaps someone could compile these, too and then they could be peiced
together in alphabetical order. My software doesn't allow for this. If I did
so, I'd have to eventually manually retype all of this information. Any
