    In regards to ABC's Cinderella broadcast, I was pretty offended by the blatant hard sell to the little ones for Cinderella II. I didn't mind the commercials, I would expect that. It was the "teacher with a pre-school class" interludes that really bothered me. Disney was obviously trying to replicate a kindergarden class with a "teacher" telling the Cinderella II story to the kids, and when one asks "How does it end?" the teacher replies, "Go get a copy and find out!" I thought Disney had more class. Thanks Mr. Eisner!

    I didn't watch the broadcast, and figured it was pretty much a way to schill Cinderella 2. What you describe sounds terrible, but not surprising.

    It's unfortunate that they won't release Cinderella on DVD for several years.

    It's unfortunate that Cinderella 2 comes to DVD first.

    It's unfortunate that Cinderella 2 had to be made.

    Wow..this was ridiculous. I honestly thought there was just as much time given for commercials/infommercials as the MOVIE! The first time on network television EVER and did you see at the beginning...."edited for content to FIT IN THE TIME ALLOTED!!!" Disney can't even give the classic Cinderella the right treatment on TV just to give more time sell their crappy sequel! *argh*

    Cinderella was edited for time too??!!

    I wonderred how they stretched Cinderella into a 2 hour time slot, being that it's not a very long film.

    I can't imaging having to edit it for length. That's just crazy.
