Pixar Guru Guts Disney Crap-Animation

Pixar's heart and soul, John Lasseter, has been given free reign at Disney Feature Animation, and as his first order of business he is annihilating Circle 7, the pillagers of the Disney canon who, throughout the past decade and especially in the last three or four years, brought us such great straight-to video sequels as
Bambi II (2006),
Cinderella II: Dreams Come True (2002),
Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure (2001),
101 Dalmations II: Patch’s London Adventure (2003),
Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin (1997),
Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie (2005),
The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea (2000),
Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas (1997),
Belle's Magical World (1998),
The Return of Jafar (1994),
Aladdin and the King of Thieves (1995),
The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride (1998),
The Lion King 1½ (2004),
Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World (1998),
The Hunchback of Notre Dame II (2002),
Mulan II (2004),
Tarzan & Jane (2002),
Tarzan II (2005),
Kronk's New Groove (2005),
Atlantis: Milo’s Return (2003),
and Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch (2005),
along with the strangely theatrically released
Return to Never Land (2002),
The Jungle Book 2 (2003),
The Tigger Movie (2000),
Piglet's Big Movie (2003),
and Pooh's Heffalump Movie (2005).
No word yet on whether they'll get around to releasing Fox and the Hound II, Leroy & Stitch, or Brother Bear II, but you can bet there will be no Toy Story 3. Which means Disney will never produce quite as many sequels as there are Land Before Times. Good riddance.

I'm still holding out for Land Before Time 37: Dinosaurs Do Shit.
