    Rocky: “Bullwinkle, they’re trying to use Jay Ward’s name to pose as con guest speakers to get people to go to Disney World instead of Universal Orlando”

    Bullwinkle: “maybe they’re just using a merchandise manager to play the part. maybe he’s trying to convince Quaker Oats to put free Cars character toys in cereal boxes by posing as ‘Cap’n Crunch’…..”

    Rocky “…..OR MAYBE THEY’RE TRYING TO MAKE A ‘GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE 3′! ”

    Seriously his name is the same as the guy who produced Rocky and Bullwinkle and George of the Jungle, plus Crusader Rabbit and others.

    Disney is really desperate to get people to EPCOT when the Pixar celebration should be at the ex-mgm studios.

    Wonder when Disney will give FREE entry to Epcot with a Disneyworld ticket?
