One thing bought my eye though (points if you get that reference).
According to Roger Ebert (and thus Wikipedia), the Mayor of Imaginationland was inspired by Mr. Sophistication from the 1976 movie 'The Killing of a Chinese Bookie.'
Frankly I think Roger has lost his head (not just his jaw, heyo!).
I was always under the impression that the Mayor was, at the very least, 95%+ inspired by the animatronic Dreamfinder character in the ride Journey Into Imagination that used to be at Disney World's Epcot Center back in the 80's and 90's.
Is there an official take on who or what the inspiration was behind the Mayor? Just wondering...
Trey was at Disney World the summer before this trilogy aired.
Ebert can suck it.
As a curiosity, I was wondering whether or not the moderator of this board would mind checking in with the creators, and denying or confirming the part about the imagination song.
Sorry again if I came off as confrontational. For some weird reason, I experience a certain amount of nerd rage over this particular nuance.
