Look at those orange groves on the Disneyland wall map, dang, there's none left.

I always loved the Fleischers' 'Hoppity Goes to Town'(1941). Much more invention, humour, and far, far better songs than Disney. OK, 'Dumbo' has its moments, but Hoppity's environmental message was so far ahead of its time that it is completely charming.

Disney was doing fairy tales with soppy strings. Max & Richard were doing the perils of modernism and the effects of expansionism on the natural world to the sounds of a dance band.

I know what *I* prefer...

"Now let me show you the cryogenic tank in Tomorrowland where I plan to store my head. By the way...Fleischer...that isn't Jewish, is it?"
