As some of you may know, when Little Airplane’s Tone Thyne worked at Disney Feature Animation, he was the inspiration for a certain character that was being developed by his friends over at Pixar. Apparently many of the well-known Disney and Pixar characters were modeled on staff members from those companies. Do you see any resemblance? I do.
On my long flight home from the Children’s Media Conference in Sheffield last week, I got to thinking about who else in the kids’ TV space might have inspired other characters in the entertainment world. After some digging, I did manage to come across quite a few “Look-alikes.” At the risk of ending my career, I’d like to share them with you now.
