I'd like to see one on Hanna-Barbera Land (yes, H-B had it's own theme park). If we're sticking to Disney, ones on Communicore and Horizons would be good.

He was such a tryhard when it came to teens that I'm surprised he found any success with them.

You know funny enough he actually had a hand in getting Bojack Horseman off the ground.

I've never even heard of Splash before and that Splash Mountain's iconic name only came to be from Eisner being Eisner amuses me endlessly.

What a well-timed video, considering last I saw the Disney thread's currently talking about Song of the South (except there it's in relation to Disney's streaming service and not Splash Mountain or Tales of the Okefenokee.) I've never really looked into the movie much or Joel Chandler Harris's legacy, so a lot of the stuff in the video's new to me and drawing a conclusion on it all seems... kinda complex. There's a lot more to it than just saying it's Fair for Its Day and even back then it seems like Harris' stories were considered to be cultural appropriation by some.

Kevin didn't really talk about this in the video, but was Tales of the Okefenokee ever put under fire for anything? (Other than by the carrots.)
Some of the scrapped plantation elements just seem the littlest bit yikes for something that ran up until the 80s, to say nothing of its successor explicitly being a plantation up until 2008.

Good thing this came out way before Splash Mountain, or it would be accused of plagiarism. Given how sue happy Eisner was, I wouldn't put it passed him.

As you said, I think it got away with it more because of it being in the South where if it was anywhere else it would have been more scrutinized. On the other hand, we still have the Haunted Mansion today as a plantation style house.

Someone can probably answer this, but is there any reason the foreign parks use the Disneyland moniker rather than Disneyworld?

He's only released a trailer so far, but apparently Kevin's going to be doing a six part series on the life and works of Jim Henson.

Bumrushing through all of his vids it's interesting how he expanded his format. Although what ever happened to his planned VR park?

DefunctTV: Dragon Tales

Interesting backstory for the show. Also, that first painting looks like a meme edit. Way to be 20 years ahead of the curve.
