Oswald the (Not So) Lucky Rabbit


 
How it was meant to be.


In case you don't know Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was Walt Disney's main cartoon character before mickey Mouse. Long story short due to legal technicalities had Universal, the distributor at the time, be able to keep Oswald without keeping Walt. So here we are today and Mickey Mouse is the star. In Epic Mickey Oswald dislikes hates Mickey very much from stealing the spotlight. Though they may be fictional I cannot help feel the same way. Mickey is a mouse and Oswald is a rabbit. Since when did people like mice? That does not make sense does it? Oswald conducted a trolley, Mickey a Steamboat. Is a train really inferior to a steamboat? Am I making that much sense, I don't know but my point being is that today take some time to think about Oswald, if it wasn't for him Mickey would not exist and it is sad he does not get any credit. Watch this short to celebrate:

  1. I can't say I'm very passionate about this issue. it's such ancient history and it's hard to speculate alternate histories. I know it means a lot to you but to me it's like listening to one of those "who's better" sports arguments about two players from different eras. Who can really say?

  2. After playing Epic Mickey I felt a real strong connection to the character. Sometimes even fictional rabbits can effect you.
