Mickey Mouse Annual Contest Drawing Criticism For Use Of Random Image Of Mickey Mouse
By Emilio McRobotface
PALM BEACH, FL—Expressing their concerns to reporters, the nation’s parents expressed their frustration to reporters Sunday over the use of their son’s annual contest drawing to promote the film’s new animated feature. “We did not want the public to think of the Mickey Mouse Annual Prize Drawing as just a quick, easy way to get a glimpse into the upcoming Mickey Mouse feature, but more of a formal presentation for participating children to learn about the characters and their respective worlds,” said parent Gary Steiner, noting that he and his wife, Janet, were very nervous about the recent use of a random image of Mickey Mouse in a promotional flyer for the film’s sequel, Mickey Mouse And The Magical Map Of The Unhewn Throne. “Unfortunately, this was merely the latest in a series of graphic manipulations that have to be done in order to make the image of Mickey Mouse appear larger than it really is—it’s a massive leap forward for our children’s viewing experience.” Steiner added that he had been disappointed last year when his son submitted the drawing to no avail.
