Eisner Slips Topps a Mickey

Former Walt Disney CEO, Michael Eisner has found his new Mickey Mouse.
He wants Topps, the 69 year old candy & trading card company, to promote their eye-patch wearing bubble gum mascot from 1953, Bazooka Joe, with a movie and a TV/Internet/publishing francise.

Will Bazooka Joe win the hearts of kids once again? Only time will tell I suppose.
Maybe Tim Burton can do for Bazooka Joe what he did for Topps' trading card series, "Mars Attacks!"?

I predicted a sticky sitution and some gummed up problems (sorry couldn't resist putting bad puns in this post).
