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.

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.

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

Dracomut : Here we have an extreme example of what can go wrong when a ride isn’t themed: a total devoid of charm or character. The Monsters Inc ride that replaced it isn’t perfect, but it has tons more personality


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

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

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

CHICHI7 : It's sad they used Village People music to advertise the ride.

Musical Hell : Just discovered your channel and I'm loving the flashbacks to all the rides I remember fondly (and rides like this one, which I never experienced but enjoy hearing about because I'm morbidly fascinated by creative projects gone terribly wrong). May I request a look at Cranium Command? That one's a huge nostalgia button for me.

Michaeljack : That intro was beyond cringeworthy

Quinton Reviews : Jesus that intro skit is surreal

dragontatoes : Drew Carey and Rosie O'Donnell boarding a ride while "All Star" plays and an NSYNC add scrolls across the bottom is the peak new millennium aesthetic

Disney Watchers : I didn't think the ride was that bad. it would be a nice smooth ride with AC on a hot day

Honorary Tuba : "A California themed theme-park in the already California themed California"

Drakkenmensch Silverflare : Wow, the Drew Carey cast is looking seriously BORED out of their skulls during the ride.

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.

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"

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

K Koundouris : As a concept is interesting if made properly. The execution was lame.

Cait Cher : You knew the ride was going to be horrible the moment you watch the cast of the Drew Carey show force their laughs at the audio of the jokes.

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"

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

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.

Sarah Gray : I really feel sorry for Drew Carey now!

Kayla : "A California themed theme park to be located in the already California themed California."

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

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 :/

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

Medicine Mundy : I wish i could have heard a witty remark or two from Ryan Stiles when he got on superstar limo

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

catholiccontriversy : The original concept doesn't sound that bad, poor taste based on the circumstances, but not terrible. The result on the other hand...

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.

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.

Flander Fiend : I remember riding this attraction. I was only five or six at the time, so most of the references must have flew over my head. But what I will NEVER forget is the yelling bald man. He gave me anxiety.

Brien Malone : “The ride lives on in the worst way possible.” A bit dramatic, don’t you think? I like the Monsters Inc ride.

Eryn McVay : Ryan Styles looks so, so bored.

Lyra : Ew, Whoopi Goldberg

Radioactivekitteh : that tone when saying "cartoonish" is so snobby I got the feeling that this narrator had a bad personal experience on this ride lol

Mr. Meloetta : FNAF's got nothing on puppet Joan Rivers.

Roxanne Laney : "A California-themed theme park, to be located in the already California-themed California" I love this channel.

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

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

Elena Migliorini : Sometimes yt recommend good stuff

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

Letty Guerra : I have an idea! Create a park called retro Disneyland or Disneyland revisited with all the cool old rides and attractions they got rid of. Like voyage through innerspace, mission to Mars, country bear jamboree, the people mover, the air team, the Monsanto house, old autopia, the speedboat ride, etc.. also bring back the polanisian show luau, and the ship that used to sell the tuna sandwiches. OH! And the grand canyon ride. I'd go to that over crappy star wars or marvel land. I hate those franchises.

Mistah Mew : 0:47 the guy on the left omgggg his face xD

Theatre squad 2003 : 0:11 AY MY GUY COLIN MOCHRIE!!

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.

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.
