Subject: RE: BS: Cartoon Characters who didn't make it.
Has anyone mentioned Walt Disney's first character, Oswald Rabbit? Walt"s creation was "ripped off" and given to Walter Lantz, of Woody Woodpecker fame, and fell into obscurity.
Walt's second character, Mickey Mouse, was better protected, and is still alive and kicking.
Or, at least, squealing.
