Goofy wasn’t fit to be Disney CEO. His name isn’t Bob.
BURBANK, CA — Mickey Mouse is back.
After announcing his retirement yesterday, the Mouse “pulled an Iger” and announced his unretirement today. No formal reason was given. A source tells Uncle Walt’s Insider, however, that Goofy was a “disaster.”
Minnie Our source, who wished to remain anonymous, giggled and said, “My sweetheart just was made to be the head guy. Everyone loves Mickey!”
“Oh, sure, everyone loves Goofy, too, but not in the same way. More like the way you love that corny uncle who trips over things a lot. Or Bob Chapek.”
Yet another inside source was less diplomatic, and indeed was in a feather-spewing rage against Goofy being made CEO. And as usual we couldn’t understand a thing he said.
Have you ever pulled an Iger? Were you arrested? Let us know in the comments below!
