Notable?

Maybe it's just because it's such a short article, but I find the notability of this gag pretty questionable. Bad Bad Guy 04:14, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Me too. The works of Disney are so numerous and expansive that there's bound to be some references to them in any American show. As listed on the page, the references to Disney don't seem at all related, and unless someone can come up with more references to make me think otherwise, I don't think this article should be kept.

I vote keep. Just because Disney references are popular doesn't mean we shouldn't note them; Nintendo ('80s video games in general) references are popular too. If anything, their popularity makes them more notable. Though the references listed here are quite varied, they are each still relevant not because they're direct references to each other, but to Disney works that are equally various. — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 11:50, 22 February 2008 (UTC)
While I would generally say that Disney references would be notable and deserve their own article, I'm not happy with the current one. Cinderella would for example be a movie that I would accept in a Disney references list. Golden Girls or The Nightmare Before Christmas not. Yes, I know that they're Disney by name.
