When I was a lot younger and living in Milwaukee, there was this car wash that painted Disney characters all over its windows. And Disney found out somehow and sued them, or something, and I think I remember them actually sending a representative to make sure that the Mickey Mouses and Plutos and whatever actually got scraped off the windows. I mean, they took the stolen-art thing so seriously that someone from Disney actually came out to supervise the removal.
I guess it's easier to go after a Milwaukee car wash than an Indian tin bus manufacturer.
Meet WTF Bus #6- the one where they randomly sneaked some Disney characters aboard.
I don't know what exactly they were going for here. It's obviously a ripoff of Mickey Mouse. I would think that if you were wanting to do a Disney bus, you'd just go balls-to-the-wall and do all Disney characters. They seem to be mixing these up with characters they made up, kind of a fantasy league of bus passengers. Like if they hide just a couple of Disney guys in with the others, no one will ever notice.
Also, Lion King. Get it? Get it?
There's no "rupee limit" sticker on this bus, so I have no idea what it goes for in India. I can tell you that it's not an "electronic toy" by any stretch of the imagination. It's a traction bus like all the others, and it has a bell so when you push it, it goes *thump* ding! *thump* ding! *thump* ding!
It's almost like Mickey and Donald have been drugged and abducted, hidden in a passenger bus of unknown Indian cartoon characters. Notice there aren't any doors on the bus. The other passengers, many sporting inexplicable pastel mohawk puffs, look either astonished, horrified, or bloated.
They actually tried to make both sides match, which is more of a shit than they usually give.
Kindly Nearsighted Tiger at the wheel there.
It all finishes up with a sort of off-color Donald. I don't know if this is a "racially sensitive" version or if they just figured that if they made him pale orange he was theirs now. The panda and the squirrel are high-fiving each other. You can tell they really believe they've pulled this off.
So that's the WTF Disney bus.
