Letter Of Note of the Day: On February 13, 1986, an inter-office memo was sent out to Disney employees announcing the retroactive renaming of many studio classics.
The notice, attributed to then-Walt Disney Feature Animation president Peter Schneider, was actually the handy work of Ed Gombert, an animator who, along with many of his colleagues, was upset over the decision to rename Disney’s Basil of Baker Street adaptation “The Great Mouse Detective.”
Then-Disney CEO Jeff Katzenberg, who reportedly called Schneider into his office to do some explaining, was unable to determine the fake memo’s true origin. Nor was he successful in stopping itself spread beyond the walls of Disney HQ: A copy of the memo eventually landed in the pages of the LA Times.
