  • DISNEYLAND THERE NOW.

  • THE NEW $5.5 BILLION DISNEYLAND PARK.

  • THIS A HUGE CROSS-CULTURAL MOMENT.

  • NOW THAT DISNEYLAND IS IN CHINA, CHILDREN THERE WILL HAVE CONTEXT

  • FOR THE TOYS THEY'VE BEEN MAKING.

  • THE PARK IS ALREADY A HUGE SUCCESS, BUT, APPARENTLY, A LOT

  • OF NAMES OF DISNEY PROPERTIES DON'T TRANSLATE WELL INTO

  • CHINESE, SO THEY HAD TO MAKE SOME CHANGES, LIKE RENAMING

  • DUMBO "LITTLE FLYING ELEPHANT," RENAMING FROZEN, "ENCHANTED

  • DESTINY OF SNOW," AND THE "BIBBITI BOBBITI BOUTIQUE" WAS

  • RENAMED "COLORFUL MAGICAL FANCIFUL TRANSFORMATION.

  • AND MICKEY MOUSE IS NOW CHAIRMAN MOUSE.

  • AND IT'S NOT JUST CHINA THAT -- MM-HMM.

  • THAT'S GOOD.

  • AND IT'S NOT JUST CHINA THAT RENAMES THINGS TO SOMETHING MORE

  • CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE.

  • I IDENTIFY WITH THIS PROBLEM.

  • I'M THE ONE WITH THE GLASSES.

  • I'D WATCH THAT SHOW.

  • ALL RIGHT.

  • WE TALK A LOT ABOUT POLITICS ON THIS SHOW, BUT FOREIGNERS OFTEN

  • HAVE DIFFERENT WAYS OF REFERRING TO OUR CANDIDATES.

  • GO WRONG WITH A STACK OF CARDS THIS HIGH?!

  • WHENEVER THE SHOW IS BROADCAST IN RUSSIA, IF I EVER REFER THE

  • POPULAR KIDS' PIZZA ARCADE CHUCK E. CHEESE'S, WE HAVE TO

  • CHANGE IT TO "COMMANDANT VERMIN'S MUSICAL PIZZA HELL."

  • (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) THERE YOU GO.
