Defunctland : Hello everyone. To answer the main question, yes I have already done an episode on Superstar Limo. I will be going back and redoing some of my old videos every now and then to give them the same research and production value as the new ones. This video is over twice as long as the original, because I was able to find so much more information and footage.

L Blair : I like Disney's idea to have a California themed area... In California. Wow, It's like being in California.

C.W. Roederer : Honestly I think if done right the Muppets' verison could have been awesome.

FlamingSackOfPizza : 12:45 - "a horrifying puppet version of the late Joan Rivers" ...so basically just Joan Rivers?

EnigmaDrath : "California Adventure: a California-themed theme park to be located in the already California-themed California." American equivalent of traveling to France to visit Le Louvre, but never going beyond the gift shop while eating store-bought croissant :/

Michaeljack : That intro was beyond cringeworthy

Courtney (ProjectSNT) : "Eisner had a technique he would use when deciding on new projects. The technique was called /jealousy/." I spat out my soup when I heard that line.

c.apricio.us : I'm pretty certain that the phrase "California Adventure, a California-themed theme park to be located in the already California-themed California" is my absolute most favourite of any in Disney-related criticism history.

SavageGreywolf : >Colin Mochrie >Drew Carey >Ryan Stiles >with special guest star Rosie O'Donnell "Scenes from a Hat: Celebrities ride the worst Disney ride ever"

TheSkullKid : Why not just take the original concept and retool it a little? Make it a taxi instead of a limo and have the story involve the guests trying to make it to a movie premiere at Grauman's on time, avoiding the perils of the California roadways along the way. The taxi driver could replace Eisner as the "host" of the ride, and it would save face by allowing the company to keep most of the original ideas, the celebrity appearances, theater ending area, and high-speed chase, while removing connotation to Princess Diana's death by taking out the limo and paparazzi.

spinningninja2 : "I don't get it, what could go wrong with this ride? It seems like a fine concept I don''t see ho-" 8:18 *violently sucks in air* *"ooooooooooooooo"*

Quinton Reviews : Jesus that intro skit is surreal

Axol The Axolotl : Yo, I heard you like California, so we put a California in your California. -Eisner.

Katie : Clipart: The Ride.

MeowTheRainbowX : 15:10 How to date your video in 1 easy step: 1. Use Smash Mouth as your background music unironically

Totally Not Josh : Disney Sea looked sick af guys, it'd be so ahead of its time and so dope to explore, also, California Adventure would be a lot more successful and cooler here in Florida, and they could've done a Miami Florida theme in California, but that's just me!

AnvilPro100 : Ugh, as if the Princess Diana stuff wasn't bad enough that thing about the railroad crash felt like God pointing down and saying "Fuck this park"

NoFunNoHope : The cast of the Drew Carey Show and (for some reason) Rosie o donald talking up this ride while smashmouth plays in the backround hurts so much.

Wizard Dojo : I remember this ride... So glad it's Monsters, Inc. now. Also, that 2001 video footage looks ancient. Can't tell it apart from late 80s/early 90s footage. Really makes you realize how the past two decades have really pushed that kind of technology forward.

* * : The sleazy agent looks like one of the puppets from lazy town. A scarier version of the mayor, perhaps.

Joey Simon : can't wait for the defunctland episode on pixar pier

xingcat : The fact that the most obvious thing was how immediately dated the whole ride would be didn't occur to any of them is so sad.

Kevin R. : "A California-themed theme park in the already-California-themed California." True. Very true.

AJ : Michael Eisner triggers my fight or flight reaction.

Harrison : God the clip of them riding the ride was cringe.

Happyme! : The Cindy Crawford figure looks like a prostitute. What a spectacularly awful looking ride!

Jimby : When I was 17 I worked in California Adventure at the Boudin Sourdough Factory. I ran the little video tour starring Rosie O'Donnell and Colin Machrie. Just thought I'd mention that.

Jester2415 : They should bring it back, only this time it ends on a casting couch with Harvey Weinstein in a loose-fitting bathrobe.

SimplyiDol : "the technique is known as jealousy" jesus christ no brakes

Jackeda : ''Hi Cher.''

B10K PlaysGames : the beginning of this video be like: B I G G I E C H E E S E

Megurine_ Sydney : ...Did anyone else notice Colin Mochrie from Whose Line is it Anyways was in the intro skit?

Noah Bowie : They could've taken the original idea and simply changed some aspects of it. Such as instead of escaping paparazzi you could be late for your premiere. Or it could've been a "whistle stop tour of California" in that you speed through the most famous parts of California instead of crawling through a crap rendition of Los Angeles.

Lexavax : Ryan Stiles looks like he just finished filming a hoedown when he's on the ride.

DaTRI3E : *Pleasure Island* ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Louie S : "Eisner had a simple technique that he often used when he decided on new projects, the technique is known as Jealousy" The Perj spittin fire!!!!!!

Scottie Burgess : if I made that ride, I would have waited for the 'death of princess Diana' thing to blow over, and then maybe start production on the ride. ...but that's just me talking.

Alex Moreno : I would just hate that ride primarily because it stereotypes everything about Los Angeles I get pelted with wherever I travel, how would New Yorkers like it if Disney made a ride where there was a bunch of fat drunk Italian Yankees fans throwing pizza and beer at the guests while riding in a subway car full of graffiti and transients?

TubeScrewed : 90% of the celebrities in that Limo ride, are now very politically polarizing figures. Another reason this was a stuuupid idea.

Larry Bundy Jr : Its amazing how Dark Rides always have the most interesting stories behind them!

Mesousa Gaby : It's not that the ride is awful, its just LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME.

BDNeon : I feel a strange sort of pride in being able to say I actually experienced this awfulness firsthand. We're a small club, those of us who got to ride these rides for their remarkably short existence. I've even been on the Rocket Rods at Tomorrowland.

Joseph011296 : The Arrested Development homage you went for with the editing and presentation is amazing and spot on accurate to the show, great work.

Martin Horowitz : My Cousin's were child actors, they loved superstar limo. When one of them finally got a starring role in a movie, she said that the premiere was just like superstar limo.

TheHightower92 : I dunno, but I find Superstar Limo kind of endearing, ironically now that its been gone for so many years. The C list ABC celebrities, and the lame humor really make this a relic of the late Eisner era and a funny reminder of California Adventure's rough start.

ShinyGaara65 : Was that Colin Mochrie in the intro talking to Eisner?!!

John Smith : Imagine surviving through one of the darkest periods of human history only to die in an amusement park. Jesus

Mr. Snarky : Limo ride vehicle Hollywood setting "All freeways jammed" sign at start High-speed chase It's a terrible version of Rock n' Rollercoaster.

Original Name : Can confirm: California is indeed California-themed.

Alex Villarreal : Okk, you caught my attention with the intro. Shoot, even the narration felt very much like how Ron Howard narrates the show!
