How many "accidental" sales do you think productions like this actually get? I can't believe its that many?

lmao at "Sunday School Musical" :P

"Little Cars 2" actually looks more like it's based on the cars from the old Chevron commercials, which are much older than Pixar's "Cars".

Of the "classic-era" animation movies, I thought that Thumbelina was an attempt to rip that style off. It failed miserably.

And to think that Jodi Benson was the lead . . . (she's also our beloved Little Mermaid!) *sigh*

But as for the previous rip-offs . . . WOW. :o Those were awful. The Princess one was ridiculous. I agree with Vermin Friends on the Little Cars series - Chervon-cars with crappy dialogue and bad titles. As for the "SSM," only the title seems to be a ripoff, and maybe some of the content with the plot, but I kinda like the religious addition to it. 8)

But yeah, I've seen worse . . .
- Goldie, a Bambi rip-off
-A crappy Aladdin clone
-Part one of a bad Lion King clone
-A not-so-good copy of the second Lion King
-The trailer makes me laugh at how bad this is . . . This makes Hunchback 2 look like a freakin' masterpiece!

And there's some other bad clones, like of Balto, Pocahontas, Atlantis, and more . . . but yeah. These are crap. They make Disney's worst DTV sequels look like priceless gems.

What about "Ratatooing"? That title just screams "Hi, we're stealing an idea and "fixing" up the name so no one will know. Please sue us."

I also saw an "Atlantis", "Mulan", "Herkules" and a "Son of the Lion King", but they didn't look as similar to the Disney versions than these. What a pathetic company.

I agree if your response has your avvie on it. (Their expressions say it all!)

But yeah, that's just wrong . . . so wrong . . . Super-budget is an understatement.

lol "Image"! :P

I remember during the mid '90s (when I was in elementary school), [previously] lesser known fairytales and stories/legends were being published, not-so-surprisingly after Disney's versions were released. I went through my ten-year untouched bookshelf last month, and found Asian versions of TLM, BatB, Aladdin, TLK, even Pocahontas, all published around a year after the Disney versions were released. I'm not being racist or anything (especially considering I'm full Japanese myself) but... geeze louise. Stoop so low for an extra buck?

The thing is, not as much with Pixar or High School Musical, but a lot of these stories are public domain that Disney just made their (really good) versions of. Even Pixar said they had to try to create cars that didn't look like any personified cars from before.

But honestly, leave some of these alone, especially The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Juuchan! There was nothing in there that remotely looked like the Disney version. It's not a rip-off, so back off!

Also, sometimes it's hard to get the overly popular Disney images out of the mind when trying to create something using a story that existed before Disney, but Disney used. It's really hard to make an old hag in black look too different from another one.

The Sunday School Musical looks like it wouldn't be that bad. I think it would sell better if it was titled something else rather than an attempt to bank on the popularity of HSM. In the trailer, the guy with the glasses who announces for people to get ready looks like the Rattigan kid from the Sontarans Doctor Who episodes of Series 4. (It's not him, btw. I checked IMDB).

:lol: You missed the Bedknobs and Broomsticks rip-off:

This thread is really funny!! I can't believe how these companies think they can rip off people. I wonder how many people actually but this stuff. Though some of the Good Time animation video rip offs from Wal-Mart didn't look too bad. I've always wondered if they're any good. I think my favorite Disney mockery was the attempt to rip off two 1998 Disney movies with the hybrid of Mulan and A Bug's Life:

Funny story about that Bug movie Kram.

My daughter was 3 when Disney's Mulan came out, and needless to say she fell in love with it, and in a way, kind of opened me up to how cool Disney was, so I started learning about the company and got into all the old animation.

But, I digress.

My daughter told my mother all about Mulan, so when my mother saw the Mulan/Bug hybrid video in the store, she bought it for my daughter.

I may have seen that garbage more times than the actual Mulan waiting for the Disney Mulan to come out on video. It's really awful. We watched it every day for about six months, over and over, in that way that only toddler's can.

Anyone else seen "Bug Mulan"?

LOL, those are hilarious.

These aren't "cheap", but we can't forget Small Soldiers (rips off Toy Story), Antz (rips off A Bug's Life), and Shark Tale (rips off Finding Nemo).

Come on, DreamWorks, be creative for once! (Granted Shrek was a pretty big hit...)
