Did You Know: Disney

Welcome to my Latest and Greatest Segment, Did You Know! In this segment it's all about Cartoon Factoids. Some known, others not. Well, let's get started.

Did You Know: The Bonkers was originally gonna be about the Misadventures of Roger and Jessica Rabbit (from who framed roger rabbit?), However Warner Brothers (who owned half of the roger rabbit license) didn't want them to do so and even threatened legal action if they did. So The concept and the characters of the show were changed. On a related note, When Disney announced the name of the Show, Warner Brothers were miffed off, due to the name 'Bonkers' being what they wanted to call their latest Cartoon series (at the time). Warner Brothers eventually gave up on the name. BTW, the show they wanted to name 'Bonkers' became Animaniacs.

Did You Know: That Dr. Drakken and Shego from Kim Possible were originally gonna be Villains that appeared once in a while and weren't even considered to be regulars by the Producers. However, the characters kinda grew on them and it wasn't long until Drakken and Shego were made regulars.

Did You Know: That Lilo and Stich The Series is the ONLY Disney Animated Show that had crossover episodes with 4 other Disney shows. Those shows were: Recess, The Proud Family, American Dragon Jake Long , and Kim Possible. So apparently, these shows exist in the Lilo and Stich Universe. Though, I don't know if it's the other way around. 

Did You Know: That Quack Pack is widely considered the Black sheep of Disney's "Duck" Universe. It's often debated among fans whether the Show is a continuation of Ducktales OR an Alternate retelling of it.

That's it for today. If you have any Cartoon Trivia you'd like to submit to the site, drop a comment below.

I agree. The first part about the Toontown was pretty much true. Originally they were going for a Roger Rabbit spin off type cartoon and ended up as Bonkers.
