You three who picked "Hunchback", that amazes me. It's not Beauty & The Beast, but it's pretty good and well acted and features some pretty strong (if a little dark) songs. That one would have never crossed my mind.
It's been a long time since I saw the movie, but I don't remember liking it. I have, however, read the Hugo book in the past few years, and the idea of turning that book into a Disney cartoon is absolutely ludicrous.

Plus, I only watch Disney movies that get really good reviews nowadays. If it is a middling cartoon then I probably haven't seen it.

4. S: In 1946, Disney branched out and produced his first live-action feature. What is your favorite live-action Disney feature?



That first Disney live-action feature was Song of the South (which did not get any votes here). If you want to see this movie, you're out of luck. It's locked away in the Disney vault because Disney corporation's feelings on the movie are:

Spoiler:


Personally, if the pro-klan Birth of a Nation can be released with the understanding that it's a product of its time but still deserves to be available to modern viewers because of its historical significance, I don't see why this movie can't.

My honest answer is probably:



... which didn't get any votes either

Looking at the list of movies released under the Walt Disney Pictures banner ... man, that's a long list. And a whole lot of crap in there. Though discerning sheep narrowed it down to a small number of movies ... and some decent points may be up for grabs in this question.

I tried to steer sheep away from Marvel Studios and Lucasfilms answers. But sheep are notorious for not following directions. Any sheep go astray?

Here are some actual live-action Disney movies where some sheep stand alone:

Spoiler:


The Black Hole: 0

I fondly remember this movie. I was the right age for it (grade school), and kids were anxious for a good new movie to scratch the Star Wars itch. In retrospect it was flawed, but I'd still love to see a great Blu Ray release. And it had great theme music:

Re: Disney (Reverse) SHEEP Game: When You Wish Upon a SHEEP

Now let's get to the matches! When writing this question I thought the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was such an obvious answer that I almost wrote the question saying "except" for that movie. If playing, it would've been a no-brainer slam for me. Were my instincts correct?

Spoiler:


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl: -6
Abob Teff
Mr. Flix
mwbmis
GhostLee
redstang93 {sd} -12
Obi-Wan Jabroni

I'm quite sure I wouldn't have won this game if I played.

Well, it could have been worse if I had gone with my initial answer of Escape to Witch Mountain.

5. S: Name a Disney film that combines animation with live action.



A favorite of mine, sadly Bedknobs and Broomsticks got no votes.

It didn't do well in the last question, but maybe Song of the South did better here?

Not bad, but not exactly a score to take one to the Laughing Place.

Enchanted would've been my honest answer too, and I also had it for the next question before changing.

Re: Disney (Reverse) SHEEP Game: When You Wish Upon a SHEEP

There really are a limited number of correct answers to this question (though being a sheep question, being correct isn't needed). I know if this was a general movie question about a feature that combined live-action and animation the runaway answer would've been:



While not released under the Walt Disney Pictures banner, it contained Disney characters and the sheep could well think of it as a Disney movie. How did that go?

Spoiler:
Who Framed Roger Rabbit: -4
AaronHernandez
Crocker Jarmen
Decker {sd} -8
RoboDad {sd} -8

Not bad, but when these players see how another answer did they may be like ...

Re: Disney (Reverse) SHEEP Game: When You Wish Upon a SHEEP

Now for some more answers:

Spoiler:


Fantasia: 0
tommyp007 {sd}

I had to think about where tommyp007 could be coming from with this answer. Then I remembered the intercut live-action footage of an orchestra:



Spoiler:


The Jungle Book: 0
devilshalo

I'm not clear on this answer either. I'm guessing it's because the boy character is live-action but everything else is CGI-animation. The 1967 feature doesn't have any live-action in it, so I'm assuming devilshalo means the newer movie. Not that it matters since there weren't any matches.

Spoiler:


Pete's Dragon: 0
Obi-Wan Jabroni

The 1977 movie clearly was a combination of live-action and animation, so that's what version I assume Obi-Wan means. Unfortunately for him, there weren't any matches

Spoiler:
Some of you have been mentioning the more recent movie Enchanted:



Will you regret not picking it?

Spoiler:
I doubt it since no one picked it for this question.



Spoiler:
Could Mary Poppins still be on the mind of some sheep?



Spoiler:
You bet!

Mary Poppins: -14
Abob Teff
DaveNinja
davidh777
Drexl
GhostLee
hasslein
majorjoe23
TheAllPurposeNothing
cnicholls44
dfmaverick2
Mr. Flix
Palaver
wishbone
Kal-El

Was anyone so confident as the slam the biggest sheep question of the game so far?

Spoiler:
TheAllPurposeNothing {sd} -28
cnicholls44 {sd} -28
dfmaverick2 {sd} -28
Mr. Flix {sd} -28
Palaver {sd} -28
wishbone {sd} -28
Kal-El {sd} -28

Truly a jolly holiday with Mary:

This was my first thought (and I just bought a digital copy on Friday) but knew it wouldn't be popular. And I'm glad I bailed on Enchanted.

Mary Poppins dominated the last two questions. Does the streak continue?

The answer appears to be no.

Re: Disney (Reverse) SHEEP Game: When You Wish Upon a SHEEP

All of the remaining answers are characters from the animated features. The smart play would seem to pick a character whose name is the title of the movie.

Spoiler:


Snow White: 0
GhostLee {sd}

Spoiler:


Pocahontas: 0
AaronHernandez

Spoiler:
Surely the title character of a recent hit movie will do better?

Re: Disney (Reverse) SHEEP Game: When You Wish Upon a SHEEP

It's been so long since I've seen Mary Poppins that I totally forgot that there was animation in it. I would have been better off staying with the technically incorrect Roger Rabbit instead of what I settled on.
