Mickey Mouse had this to say:
"I think the whole thing is goofy. Pluto has never been interested in astronomy before, other than maybe an occasional howl at the moon."The Disney Company at large issued this statement:
"Although we think it's Dopey that Pluto has been downgraded to a dwarf planet, which has made some people Grumpy and others just Sleepy, we are not Bashful in saying we would be Happy if Disney's Pluto would join us as an eighth dwarf. We think this is just what the Doc ordered and is nothing to Sneeze at."
Pluto (the dog) made his debut in the 1930 cartoon The Chain Gang. That same year Pluto (the planet) was discovered. Pluto (the dog) is named after the new found planet. Pluto (the planet) is named after some Roman mythology crap.
I think the biggest tragedy in all of this is the end of the sentence: My Very Educated Mother Just Showed Us Nine Planets. Remember that? The first letter of every word stood for each of the nine planets in their order from the sun. Now that whole thing is down the drain! Before NASA spends another gazillion dollars to launch something into outer space, they need to get some English & Science teachers together to come up with a new sentence for kids to learn the planets!
