Court orders Tweety, Mickey to take the stand!!

19 12 2007

A clerical error in a court in Naples included the cartoon characters Tweety Bird, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and his girlfriend Daisy, in a summons for criminal trial of a Chinese man accused of counterfeiting products of Disney and Warner Bros.


The court summons cites “Titty, Paperino, Paperina, Topolino” — the Italian names for the characters — as damaged parties in the trial.

“Unfortunately they cannot show up, as they are residents of Disneyland,” officials said in an interview. “It certainly pleased us that the characters were considered real, because that’s what we try to do.”

Let’s hope the characters will not be prosecuted for failing to appear!
