Actually, he was drinking a can of Diet Pepsi. He ordered a Pepsi Free at the diner, but did not receive it.

Just heard a good one on SNL tonight. In a skit they referenced EPCOT and the picture was taken in front of the "World of energy". To me it seemed like a cross between World of Energy and Universe of Motion.

1. In Back to the Future II there is a Roger Rabbit doll in the window of the antique store.
2. In The Return of Jafar, Genie makes a few Disney references, he says "it's a small world after all," appearing a Jiminy Crickey he says "let your conscience be your guide," and finally he says "bibbidy bobbidy boo."
3. Zazu sings "It's a small world after all..." to Scar.
4. There are a bazillion references in "The Simpsons," "Futurama," and "South Park."

I love how iconic Disney is. It's pretty much invaded every form of entertainment - whether or not the entertainment is Disney-owned. I worked at a daycare and when I wore my Mickey stormtrooper shirt the babies (and I mean babies...like 6 - 9 months) TOTALLY recognized Mickey Mouse...and they can't even talk!

the show "Boy meets World" had a great episode where Cory and Shawn went to Disney World. The show featured every ride and every park. It had behind the seen shots, and it was a lot of fun to watch. Its a 30 minute commercial.

right about the time that Disney bought ABC, ALL the primetime Friday shows (TGIF!) went down to WDW. I remember the Sabrina - The Teenage Witch episode where they went to AK when it first opened. and the Step-By-Step episode. And of course the 2 part Full House cliff-hanger where Michelle runs away while she's "Princess" for the day...

the movie Bebe's Kids has them going to a theme park named Fun World, where the kids are so bad, they get tried by a court of animatronic figures, presided oover by Abreaham Lincoln

also, if you're willing to stretch your imagination a bit, you can find a reference almost ANYWHERE. simple dialog can trigger a "recognition"...

And of course, who can forget the Family Guy episode where Peter brings Stewie to WDW.

"You drag me on an airplane for three hours to FLORIDA; God's waiting room....Diznee World, Diznee World, Diznee World, Diznee World!!!! I still hate you."

"It's a tiny, tiny world".
Are we there yet? When can we go back?

I don't know what's worse, the anticipation of going or the withdrawals after getting home.

This episode comes up in our house whenever Eisner is mentioned.

I think a point missed here is that the subliminal advertising really started with Eisner. I know I've been one of the biggest anti-Eisner voices at Sub, but a lot of the negatives opinions we have about Disney can be traced back to Eisner. If anybody needs examples at this point, ask and I can show you multiple points in a heartbeat. I feel this is just another way Eisner lives on.

In the first Toy Story, there is a clock on the wall of Andy's room that has Mickey hands. Thought that was interesting with all the friction there was between Disney and Pixar back then.

I wasn't 100% positive that the Mickey clock was in the 1st Toy Story so I wanted to check to be sure - it was.

There are also a ton of others from Toy Story (link below) some confirmed, some a stretch. Either way, I will definitely try to find these the next time we watch the movie. Subliminal, or Eisner-like, whatever - it gives it a little more something when you have to watch it over 100 times (sarcasm-people with children will know what I mean).

the problems between Pixar and Disney did not really start until Toy Story 2. Disney and Pixar we happy with each other through A Bug's Life. but, once ITTBAB opened without Pixar involvement, and when Disney wanted a sub-par TS2

Hmm, ok. That's what I was lead to believe that is was during the first Toy Story. In the documentary "The Pixar Story" it definitely leads you to believe it was a rough going for the first movie. Fundamental diffferences about the perception of the characters and how their personalities were going to be.

I love watching the reruns of that show, and in the Halloween episode, they threw a Disney reference in there, the trick or treaters were all dressed as Disney characters! Buzz Lightyear and Lion King. I got a kick out of it!!! :lol: Very subtle, but fun!
Haha I remember that!! :lol:

I like to find the hidden Mickeys in Disney films. There's a lot of them there, too. If you watch really really closely. :wink:
