OK now I kinda feel bad bc I think an actual kid made that list. They made a list of shows that should be made into movies that includes MASH.
Both kingdom hearts games are on that list and they are literally made from bits of preexisting movies.
Aside from some baffling choices (the first two Elder Scrolls), that list is predictably games that badly want to be movies/crib a ton of shit from existing movies.
The hermit crab is a species of crab of which the meat is regarded as a delicious morsel. It is usually grilled in its shell before being eaten. There is nothing more comical than this little crustacean. Nature has furnished him with armor as far as the waist—cuirass, gauntlets and visor of iron, this half of him has everything. But from the waist to the other end there is nothing, not even a shirt. The result of this is that the hermit crab stuffs this extremity of himself into whatever refuge he can find.
The Creator, who had begun to dress the creature as a lobster, was disturbed or distracted in the middle of the operation and finished him off as a slug. This part of the hermit crab, so poorly defended and so tempting to an enemy, is his great preoccupation; a preoccupation which can at times make him fierce. If he sees a shell that suits him, he eats the owner of the shell and takes his place while it is still warm—the history of the world in microscopic form. But since, when all is said and done, the house was not made for him, he staggers about like a drunkard instead of having the serious air of a snail; and so far as possible he avoids going out, except in the evening, for fear of being recognized.

Speaking of dogs:
In the 13th century in France, a dog named Guinefort was venerated as a saint. Locals would travel to his grave, where they claimed miracles would occur, especially over infants.
The legend went as follows:
A certain knight left his infant son in the care of his greyhound Guinefort while he went hunting. When he returned, he found the child’s cot overturned, the dog and room smeared with blood, and the child nowhere to be found. Enraged that his previously loyal hound had eaten his only child, the knight drew his sword and slew Guinefort on the spot. Immediately thereafter, the knight’s wife turned the cot back over, only to find the child laughing and unharmed, and the bloody corpse of a viper lying next to him.
The knight repented of having killed such a loyal friend and lowered the dog’s body into a well, which he filled in with rocks and converted into a shrine. When the people heard the story, they called the dog a martyr and venerated him as a saint who performed healing miracles, particularly among young children.
(This tale is very similar to the story of the Welsh hound Gelert, except with a wolf instead of a snake, and the added detail that the dog’s owner—Llewellyn the Great—was forever haunted by the dying yelp of the dog and never smiled again.)
Guinefort was never recognized as an official saint, and the church tried to suppress his cult. In fact, the inquisitor Stephen of Bourbon was SO MAD at the idea that someone would say a dog could be a saint, he made it clear that the cult of Guinefort was IN FACT a secret devil-worshiping operation and all babies that were allegedly healed by a dog’s ghost were actually eaten by Satan. He had the shrine destroyed and the body and relics of Guinefort burned for heresy.
To reiterate: under church law, it is impossible for a dog to be a saint; one can, however, be a heretic.
Despite the efforts of killjoys like Stephen of Bourbon, the cult of Guinefort lasted for centuries, well into the 1930s.
As far as I know, there have been no other dog saints. Except for Saint Christopher, of course, who we all know was half dog.
that disney cancelled everything lucasarts/films was working on prior to the changeover, that they did that so they could release a reskinned tiny tower, or that I played the damn thing for like two hours?
