Never saw the big screen
Don’t have much of a following
Direct to DVD, they say
Practically giving it away

No special editions, no sequels, no toys
No place in the hearts of little girls and boys
Never find me anywhere, so don’t even try
Cause nobody likes me, though I can’t imagine why

I’m not ugly, I’m not mean
I know how to steal the scene
There’s not a chance that I won’t take
And I’m not afraid to make mistakes

Why’d you even make me just to throw me in the dirt?
If I had real feelings you can bet that they’d be hurt
Lost to the ages; timeless I’m not
In month or so I know that I’ll be all but forgot
Gah, I'm such a dork.

Ok, so I saw this picture: [link] And it made me really sad.... even though I've never seen The Black Couldren, I think it stinks that any character is unloved by their creator. Plus, Disney does this a lot, and so do other companies. They're all about making money, and it's just kinda sad :(

So, that's my reasoning for writing this, I hope you like it, and I hope it makes you think about how you treat YOUR creations.

I feel for so many characters like this. Not just characters whose creators have "dropped" them as unprofitable or as throwaway characters created for an extension of an otherwise popular franchise, or even secondary characters sometimes. Unfortunately they're the ones I tend to like!

well you also gotta get that the disney marketing peoples are idiots. they include non-princesses in their princess stuffs (hello mulan was a nobel NOT a princess and NEVER will be) and these days its just mass marketign for what will sell so they go with what's known rather what what's the truth (ie her name IS Aurora NOT Sleeping Beauty here people) but yeah....peoples are just in it for the cash flow.

now i don't neglect my chars cause of that; heck i try no to t neglect them. but with so many of them...but te cooperate peoples don't have that excuse. they've got all the time they need and stuff and resources. but hey, no one's yelling at them becaue they have the money. so yeah...

good conversation piece though; you got everyone talking XD

Yeah... I don't get that Mulan thing either. I adore Mulan, she's awesome, but she's not a princess. I mean, Disney seems to practically make up what is popular though, whatever they say is "in" is. So they could include any characters they want and I think people would buy it. IMO, at least.

And I understand, just because some characters don't get as much attention doesn't mean you hate them. :hug: Thanks, I just hope I don't make anyone mad ^^;

Awww, I understand , I can't give all my OCs the same attention either, some of them get more than others, but what I mean is not to just start hating them or somehting. That's when it's sad. :hug: Thank you

A bit of a sad poem there, but you're right. A lot of characters do get pushed aside, and it's pretty depressing.

Nice job with the poem, though. There's a great show of emotion there from a character's point of view. :]

Thanks! :hug: It makes me sad. I hate when whole shows get neglected too, when they're ten times better then the other shows on the channel that for some reason just keep running....sorry, I guess I'm not over DP's cancellation yet ^^;

It was a great book though! The Book of Three!

Tis sad, however....it was an older movie, and had a very rich array of characters and scenes. Especially the Horned King

Very nice poem, you did an excellent job showing the emotion. :thumbsup:
I liked The Black Couldron - I liked the books better though, but it is sad that Disney didn't do a better job with this movie and give more attention to it.

I have to see it now, because of that picture, I really want to. And I'll look into reading the book, but that probably won't happen till school stops giving me things to read.

Yay, the movie's pretty good, but you can deffinately tell that it's not one of Disney's best works. And good luck reading the book when you're done with your school books :D
