From the Department of Who Thinks of This Stuff...
We were in our local City Market (Kroger) store last week and I saw this
dog food being sold.
From the Kroger website:
Released in 1957, Walt Disney’s Old Yeller was the quintessential tale of a
boy's love for his dog. Set amid the landscape of 1860s Texas, a young boy
named Travis wants nothing to do with the lop-eared stray. But Old Yeller
quickly proves himself a loyal friend, protecting the family and saving Travis'
life. They soon become inseparable pals, sharing joyous experiences and
learning valuable lessons about growing up.
“The movie is a timeless classic that transcends generations, and we believe
this brand will appeal not only to original fans, but to the millions of Americans
who share the same kind of special bond with their beloved dogs,” said Barry
Vance, Kroger senior corporate category manager.
“Bringing Disney’s Old Yeller brand to a trusted retailer like Kroger was a natural
fit,” said Christopher King, category director, Disney Consumer Products FMCG.
“Disney’s Old Yeller dog food is for those dogs that are part of the family.”
Did these people NOT watch the movie?!? Sure, it was a "timeless classic".
OLD YELLER ALSO GETS SHOT AT THE END BECAUSE HE HAS RABIES!!!!!
Oh yeah...they forgot about THAT part!
