I _do_ have an interest in what happens in "Rescue Rangers" and "Tale Spin".
The reason beeing that I am disappointed to an undescribable degree about
Disney throwing overboard all the high standards for first class
entertainment and jumping unto the "Sky Channel"-style comics with:
- Total overload of images. No time to enjoy any scene before the next one
comes jumping up. Same thing as we see in the typical music video.
- Total neglect of the characters previous history. It breaks my heart to
see Baloo in his new role, beeing reduced from that wonderful, relaxed bear
to a modern, busy pilot.
It's scary to think about this beeing the introduction the next generation
will get into the "Wonderful world of Disney"! I was disappointed already
when I saw my first "Gummi Bears" episode several years ago. I couldn't
believe it was Disney. But that series at least lived it's own life with new
characters. When they suddenly started misusing their old characters in the
same way I was really shocked.
I hate to conclude that I won't ever be able to say to anyone again that
bying a comic video with the name Disney on it is a sure sign of quality!
As you probably have seen by now, this has been a topic I have been dying to
say my opinion about for a long time. Please note that I _do_ realize that
the new style has it's fans, too, I just am not able to consider this the
same quality entertainment as Disney's classic animated features or Bark's
