    Donald swears in Philarmagic?

    Remember the big argument about Donald Duck's dialogue in the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"? When he supposedly let out a racist slur?

    Well I watched Mickey's Philarmagic and noticed that they took that bit of audio and used it in the film! It is in the opening minute or two of the film.

    I just wanted to know why Disney would feature that audio when there was so much controversy about it.

    I'm not going to lie.. it actually sounded like he said..

    I'm not saying that he did say this.... but what else could that "word" have been?

    Re: Donald swears in Philarmagic?

    It's a whole 'nother arguement if he said it of not.

    I am just kind of shocked they put the line in the attraction with so much controversy surrounding it.

    Here's the ride: he says it in the first 40 seconds... YouTube - PHILHARMAGIC IN HIGH DEFINITION

    To me it sounds like "mickey", but I don't know what to say about the movie line he said to daffy duck...

    They put the sound clip in because he didn't say it.

    Sorry, don't hear it. Sounds like he's saying "dumb, stupid, little..."

    I knew about Roger Rabbit, but not Mickey's Philharmagic... until you pointed it out to me. I know Donald says nothing wrong, but it sure sounds odd.

    I can't hear it. I think it's implied for the adults to assume he would say something along those lines.
    It's FALL?!? Already?!?!

    They put it in as a tribute to Walt's freezing, and I believe it is referenced in those secret videos that Walt made before his death to be shown to executives on a yearly basis.
