* The film ''Film/SavingMrBanks'', which hit rather close to home for him by falsely portraying PL Travers as approving of the film adaptation of ''Film/MaryPoppins'', since Harlan was one of Travers' friends. He was also furious that "they turned a warm, conscientious, empathic woman and turned her into an Ice Queen". [[note]] It should also be noted that he has a ''history'' with Disney, infamously being hired in the morning for scientific consultation for ''Film/TheBlackHole'' and fired before the end of ''lunch break'' for loudly pitching the idea of a [[Rule34 porn movie]] based on DisneyAnimatedCanon (and acting out parts) while the studio brass (including Roy Disney) were in earshot.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: For all his faults, he is an outspoken supporter of human rights, often helps out struggling writers and is a fiercely loyal and devoted friend.

Harlan Ellison® (yes, he's [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope made his own name a registered trademark]]) is a famously grumpy [[BerserkButton science fiction wri-]] erm, that is, [[InsistentTerminology writer]], who is strongly associated with the NewWaveScienceFiction movement of the 1960s. His work has won eight and a half Hugo Awards, three Nebula Awards (plus a lifetime achievement award), five Bram Stoker Awards (including a lifetime achievement award), two Edgar Awards, and four Writers Guild of America Awards for Most Outstanding Teleplay -- more awards than almost any other living writer -- but it's his personality that everybody remembers about him. [[{{Jerkass}} For some reason.]]

* SacredCow:[[invoked]] Considers it nothing less than his mission in life to go after these, heaping sneering contempt on ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' and [[FanHater all those who enjoy them]]. He does [[EveryoneHasStandards love]] the ''Literature/LandOfOz'' books, however, and wrote glowing introductions to the American editions of ''Series/DoctorWho'' novelisations.
