Tinkerbell, pre-revamp - 

TESS VIGELAND: And finally . . . Disney is delaying the release of a DVD based on the character Tinkerbell. It's a big deal. 'Cause Disney already launched a big marketing push with a fairy theme. The Marketplace Players wonder how a certain Mouse feels about Tink getting all the attention.


MICKEY: Hey, Tink? Can I come in?



TINKERBELL: Mickey? Wow, hi.



MICKEY: Sweet dressing room.



TINKERBELL: Right? It's crazy palatial.



MICKEY: Yeah, bigger than mine. Hey, congrats on them giving you a voice, too. Long time comin'.



TINKERBELL: Thank you.



MICKEY: And not a stupid, sissy, high, dumb one either. Look, so anyway, I came to congratulate you.



TINKERBELL: You're so sweet.



MICKEY: I mean, a few-hundred-million-dollar media and merchandising blitz. All for you. I mean, I know that feeling, it's a great feeling.



TINKERBELL: I know, I'm walking on sunshine.



MICKEY: Yeah, so I guess you won't be eating those potato chips so much anymore.



TINKERBELL: Hmm?



MICKEY: Well you know. Gotta be eye candy. Gotta stay pretty and thin.



TINKERBELL: I'm thin.



MICKEY: I was thin once, you know. I could literally wrap my legs into a pretzel. By the time Fantasia came around they had to put me in a wizard's cloak to hide my jelly roll.



TINKERBELL: Oh. You know . . . I've gotta get ready for a meeting . . .



MICKEY: And I haven't really had many features since Fantasia, you notice that?



TINKERBELL: Yeah, um . . .



MICKEY: I mean, I built this studio, but just 'cause I have a taste for french fries and the occasional whiskey . . . Boom! Bye-bye career!



TINKERBELL: You know what, Mick?



MICKEY: What?!



TINKERBELL: Maybe I could talk to someone!



MICKEY: You've got that new voice.



TINKERBELL: We could use you in craft services.



MICKEY: I could do that! I could do that!



TINKERBELL: Yeah!



MICKEY: Oh, Hollywood! It truly is the happiest place on Earth!
