I'm not usually much of a Disney fan. The characters from Snow White onward were fantastic, but they were almost always pure good or all bad. Unfortunately, this black-and-white ethos always seemed kind of flat and artificial, like early Superman or DC comics or Lawrence Welk's robotic performers. I always leaned towards more fleshed-out characters like Bugs Bunny, Spider-Man, Oscar the Grouch or Bart Simpson, who exemplified the world's negatives as well as its positives, and seemed a lot more human to me. Plus, I didn't appreciate Uncle Walt's busting some of his best artists to the U.S.
