Twitter Capsule: Aimed at tots, not even at kids. Like Duplo. Seemingly set in Medieval Knoxville, with the odd Brit. Ustinov delicious.

VOR:   Screen Robin Hood next to Pinocchio's textures, Fantasia's abstract choreographies, or Sleeping Beauty's watercolors and see how little Disney is even trying. Fun. Ish. But no milestone.
