Pluto Relegated To Lesser Character Status
By Ross Kelly
ORLANDO, Fla. — A spokesperson for The EPCOT Center announced Tuesday they have determined that Pluto lacks the sufficient qualities to officially be named a main character. Instead, Pluto has been relegated from the Magic Kingdom to the Fantasyland Kingdom.
The Magic Kingdom, now with only eight members, consists of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Cinderella, Snow White, Donald Duck, Goofy, Peter Pan and Pinocchio. The Fantasyland Kingdom, a much broader group of characters, consists of characters such as the Seven Dwarves, Bolt, The Mad Hatter and twin chipmunks, Chip and Dale.
"For so long, we just took for granted that [Pluto] was a main character because of his association with Mickey Mouse," said Daniel Stolen, spokesperson for EPCOT. "But after a closer inspection, which we had always thought unnecessary, we noticed that he was just a shitty dog that didn’t really bring anything to the table at all. At least Goofy talks."
