Take a deep dive into Disney’s Cancelled & Abandoned Animated Films, from the shelved Alice in Wonderland movies, to Song of the South’s Sibling film Catfish Bend, and the abandoned project that influenced Pocahontas.

    After a fair amount of digging, I managed to find quite a lot of details regarding Chris Sanders' American Dog: - The film would have starred John Travolta (the only cast member to stay all the way through production) as Henry the dog, Mario Cantone as Ogo the one-eyed cat (who Sanders would later revive as the star of his webcomic, Kiskaloo) and Thomas Haden Church as Buttons the radioactive bunny. Also, the animals were originally more anthropomorphic, as they could talk to humans, wear clothes and have jobs. - At some point, the filmmakers included two additional characters; a catsuit-wearing cocktail waitress named Jo Night and, if you can believe it, a little mutant zombie girl scout from the 1950s named Ruthie! Early development work/info on these two can be found on animator Mark Anthony Austin's website: Going by the film's inclusion of a glitzy, decadent hotel and a remnant of the Nevada A-bomb tests, it can be assumed the original premise would have dived into the more sordid details of American culture. - Opinions on the American Dog project and speculations on why it was cancelled was been varied. Some, like Disney historian Jim Hill and several animators who observed a rough cut of the film, saw it as highly original and lauded Sanders for sticking to his vision, while others considered it an ungodly mess, a case of style over substance with little appeal. There were also rumors that John Lasseter just plain disliked Sanders and his approach to storytelling from the beginning (he wasn't fond of Lilo & Stitch), which resulted in the project's final overhaul and retooling. There's no way of knowing how good or bad this film would've turned out, but it would certainly have been WAY more ambitious than Bolt. I hope Sanders returns to making original projects again, his art and stories are so observant and human.

    That nightmare version of Alice looks so cool. Would love to see that adapted into a cartoon eventually.

    I have a DVD of Song of the South. If you really want it that bad, you can purchase a copy from outside the US. It's really not "unavailable to the public", it's more like "not readily available."

    Native Americans harvesting rice? There are some historical facts that need to be checked. Rice was not known to the natives before the arrival of Europeans. If Disney ever makes that one happen, they will need to correct that.

    I love the reference to Song of the South. We have that movie at home and its a family favorite. My kids love it. The characters, animation, and music is wonderful. Its very sad that such a classic piece of animation and Disney history has been hidden from the world because of the PC crowd. The concept for Musicana sounds fantastic as well. There seemed to be lots of ideas involved in that would make great full length films if the company had the guts to invest the money and take a risk.

    Bluntly honest opinion whether its liked or not. But I really wanted to watch this video and its 2nd part but the way this dude talks is extremely annoying. Not many JPgo personalities turn me off with the way they speak but this dude even beats out Scotty Kilmer. Sorry dude I know you cant help it but I just cant.

    Disney was going to make a Captain Morgan movie?! I wonder how many angry mothers would complain their children have begun stealing the Rum. Although Disney has made some live action mature movies, such as Dragonslayer, being one of my favorites. It's a slow movie, but I enjoyed it.
