Question: Which Muppet is your favorite? Why?
Typically, the last thing you'd want to see in the hospital is a mouse. Especially on the maternity ward. But earlier this week, The New York Times reported that Disney has begun sending sales reps into 580 hospitals nationwide. The reps are offering new moms, within hours of giving birth, a free Disney Cuddly Bodysuit for their babies if they sign up for e-mail alerts from DisneyBaby.com. The idea is to encourage mothers to infuse their infants with brand loyalty as if it is mother's milk.

When does product placement and merchandising go too far?
“Sad thing is there are many kids who probably have learned their “history” from Disney. No need for revisionist history when you have entertainment history already indoctrinated.”
“I know, CB. Bambi ruined a lot of potential hunters, too. Bad people (not just white).”
History. Hunting. Has Disney ruined anything else?
