    I love how it says Disney/ABC traded Al Michaels for the rights to Oswald. I don't get it. Sure Oswald was Walt's first commercial creation, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was a hit, or even popular. If Oswald, the lucky rabbit was a success, wouldn't Universal have continued creating the shorts without Disney?

    I certainly hope this doesn't mean we will see new cartoons featuring this character. This would be the worst possible way to dishonor Walt Disney. After all, it was he who said, "I hope the people never lose sight of one thing. That it was all started by a mouse." The best thing Disney could do with the rights to Oswald would be to lock it up in the vault with "Song of the South" and throw away the key.

    Always wanted to see Oswald, since Walt had something to do with him.
