Wall-E



I got to see Wall-E last night. Wonderful movie and Presto, the cartoon short was great too. I'm currently working in the Magic Kingdom arcade in tomorrowland, trying to repair and clean up years of neglect. Merchandise has taken over about a third of what the arcade used to be where Space Mountan empties into the room. Now you would think, that the exit of Space Mountain would be a grand place to see Wall-E merchandise but there isn't any to be found. In fact, there isn't any space themed stuff at all. Candy, High School Musical , Camp Rock and that girl from Montana are almost the entire contents of the shop. I mentioned this to one of the cast memebers this morning and was told that there is 0 wall-e merchandise in the warehouse and that it has been like that since the movie opened. Seems, whoever does the buying didn't want to take a chance. Or, at least, that's what I was told. Didn't want to take a chance? On a Pixar movie? Obviously, that person should not have any purchasing power at all.

Wall-E totally looks like the robot from "Short Circuit"... minus the cheesy 80's style of course
