  1. No one from STAR WARS has any right to be in the Fab 50! If any ‘galactic’ characters belong on that list, it ought to be Buzz Lightyear and WALL*E. NTM I can’t help noticing some glaringly bad choices here:
    Cheshire Cat, but not Alice?
    Abu, but not Aladdin?
    Lumiere & Cogsworth, but not the Beast himself?
    Olaf & Bruni, but not Anna, Elsa & Kristoff?
    DANTE, but not Miguel & Hector!?
    Edna & Frozone, but not MR. INCREDIBLE himself!?
    And where are all the characters from Disney’s classic era, like Lady & the Tramp, Baloo, Peter Pan, Robin Hood, Merlin, and The Rescuers? Plus the entire back half of the Disney Renaissance is left unrepresented, where are Pocahontas, Hercules, Mulan, or Tarzan? Lastly, has Pixar is put out nothing worth proper representation since 2004? They’re missing Sulley & Mike, Lightning & Mater, Remy, Carl & Dug, Merida, Ian & Barley, Joy, and Luca! This is ridiculous!
