Fox is keeping control of their own fantasy channel. Too bad -- I wanted to see how long Donald would get away with not wearing pants.

....Disney would probably turn it down. That asset is toxic. You could alienate customers and who knows how much legal lawsuits you could be opening yourself up to.
