Disney movies titled descriptively

Once upon a time Disney changed the name of a movie. From something obscure to something descriptive. What started as ‘Basil of Baker Street’ became ‘The Great Mouse Detective.’

A staffer at Disney didn’t like this much. He wrote a little protest letter, in the form of a memo announcing new names for Disney’s back catalogue. Letters of Note has a copy of the memo.

  1. Someone was trying to explain what ‘Hirsch’ meant in english so they said: “You know, you go into the forest and shoot them.. they’re dead.. like Bambi”.
