OK, just a little hypothetical fun. If we, Twin Images, were somehow put in charge of the Disney conglomerate (what a bureaucratic cock-up that would be!) and could do, make, command or change anything we wanted, here’s what we’d do:
Bring the classic theatrical shorts back to the Disney Channel, or else create a separate channel or sub-channel for the shorts.
Make an all-ages animated series starring the Sensational Six for Disney+; something along the lines of Mickey Mouse Works: shorts, skits, blackout gags and musical numbers starring Mickey and the Gang.
While we’re on the subject…
Add Mickey Mouse Works and House of Mouse to Disney+.
Create a Pete costume for walkarounds and meet-and-greets at the Disney parks. Pete is such an integral part of the Mickey gang mythos, it’s weird he has no costumed representation.
If they make costumed mascot for Treasure Planet characters, they should make one for Pete.
Make Mickey Mouse a funny character again. To be fair, Disney has already started to do this, but I mean have Mickey doing wacky antics, verbal humor and slapstick outside of the Paul Rudish shorts.
Bring Quicksilver back to the MCU. For real this time, not the WandaVision fakeout.
“That dude’s name was Bohner! Huh-hu-uh-huh!” “Yeah! Heh-heh-heh! Bohner!”
Bring Iron Man back to the MCU. If Robert Downey Jr. doesn’t want to play him anymore, fine, but the MCU needs an Iron Man. They have the Multiverse now, just bring in a younger Tony Stark from another universe.
“Hi! I’m Max Isotope from Universe 23 1/2. I’ll be your Iron Man from now on! Now where’s my Avengers badge?”
Make some shorts starring the silly versions of the Disney Princesses from Ralph Breaks the Internet.
“Dude, where’s my tiara?”
Bring back Dreamfinder. Seriously. It’s great that Figment is finally getting some attention, but you can’t have Figment without the guy who created him. Figment is literally a figment of Dreamfinder’s imagination. Figment without Dreamfinder is like Muttley without Dick Dastardly.
Give Donald Duck a somewhat more comprehensible voice for the more dialogue driven shows such as DuckTales and Legend of the Three Cabelleros so that he can be better understood. But not to the point where it’s not recognizable as Donald’s voice.
“DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE WORDS THAT ARE COMIN’ OUT OF MY BEAK?!!?
Have a “Play All” buttons for the shorts on Disney+. I mean, seriously!

I think that Papernik/Duck Avenger game for the PS2 gave Donald a different, more comprehensible voice as Papernik/Duck Avenger, with Rob Paulsen as the voice actor. Maybe he could take on Donald for the serialized shows.
I just saw a clip of Duck Avenger and I think that’s a good idea. How is it that I’ve never knew about this game before today?
I’d be OK with Donald having a more comprehensible voice in all Disney projects going forward, but I know that the head execs over at the Mouse House consider the incomprehensible duck voice to be iconic by this time.
