The update in the article says that PUSH is being retired permanently. Sorry to see this character go. I have a lot of great memories with my son and this character. He loved PUSH when he was little. We had to go back and see him every hour on the hour.

Unreal. Disney says he is coming back and now he is retired permanently.

Looks like we have a liar on our hands. I really don't understand their thought process on this. Sounds like a PR Nightmare for Disney. Maybe they hired someone from SeaWorld to help them.

In times of pain comes great comedy. Saw this posted on Twitter, pretty funny:

Jason Garcia is tweeting updates...apparently, this IS a contractual issue between Disney and the inventor/co-owner of PUSH. He believes that Disney thought it likely that it would be resolved before the contract lapsed on the weekend, but it did not.

From his tweets:
Quote:
Inventor and co-owner of PUSH says contract with Disney lapsed over concerns about intellectual property rights to the character.

Said Disney changed the language from earlier contracts & there was "some ambiguity to the verbiage as to what they owned and what I owned."

That said, he also says he has sent a revised version of the contract back to Disney today and is awaiting a response.
Looks like there may still be hope, but it also sounds like from Disney's side PUSH is done.

Still...Disney claimed there were "nothing" to the rumors, when obviously the deal wasn't done.

As for the rumors about him being stripped down for parts, it seems VERY unlikely.
