Today, totally without planning and possibly due to an error by the TTC which saw a subway car stop at the platform, not open its doors and drive away, I got on a subway completely decorated inside and out to the theme of Toy Story.
Obviously this was a gigantic advertisement for the Disney Attraction. However, looking beyond the commercialism of the thing (which is no different than them bombarding me with ads for mattresses or internet service providers) I felt it reach that little boy inside me. Toy Story is one of my favourite cartoons (though The Incredibles is probably best…or maybe the first Despicable Me….now I am digressing)
Toy Story is one of my favourite cartoons and though I saw it first as an adult, it filled me with the same sense of wonder as a child. It certainly paved the way for all the good cartoons and superhero movies we have now.
I have never been to Disney and I don’t think I will ever go. However, for a few moments, I could at least picture it.
