Ed Gombert, we salute you!

In 1986, Disney big-shots made a marketing decision. They changed the title of an upcoming movie about mice from Basil of Baker Street to The Great Mouse Detective. So an animator who worked on the film named Ed Gombert wrote a fake memo renaming Disney’s back catalog of movies in a similarly lame style. For example, 101 Dalmatians becomes Puppies Taken Away. Brilliant!
