Making Fun of the Mouse: Part II
Picking up where we left off yesterday ... It wasn't just Disney's films & shorts that were targets for satire. Back in the early 1960s, "The Happiest Place on Earth" also regularly got lampooned. It was Jay Ward that supposedly got the first volley in with his " Rocky and his Friends ," a prime...
