What the press is saying

 

“Jack Plotnick’s short film reimaginings of behind-the-scenes Disney documentaries are so genius they belong in the world’s great museums of modern art. At the very least, one of the Smithsonians.”

 – QueerGuru

 

Nominated for the 2021 “Queerties” award for “Lockdown LOL”

These Hilarious Disney Studio By Jack Plotnick Are Works Of Art

“If you’re into vintage Disneyland, Mary Blair art, or Imagineering, prepare to laugh.
The videos are clearly a labor of love – no one puts this much effort into making fun of behind-the-scenes Disney studio life unless they have a deep appreciation for it — and Plotnick manages to effectively satirize the bygone era’s workplace improprieties like drinking on the job and womanizing.”

– CartoonBrew

“Perhaps the most engaging of Plotnick’s wide-ranging works are his comedy shorts on YouTube. Here he is posting a series which exceeds in conception and execution any of his previous creations. The new shorts develop his fascination with Disneyland in a manner that can only be called pleasantly distressing.”

Jack Plotnick’s brilliant spin on Disney will make poor Walt turn over in his grave

“The comic genius Jack Plotnick so made our week with another of his blisteringly funny Disney spoofs.  The very wicked sense of humor from this multi-talented writer/director/ actor/ teacher/ mentor is a sheer joy to behold.”

 – QueerGuru

 

Sacred cows are skewered in this hilarious satire of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color

“You may never think of beloved artist Mary Blair the same after viewing actor Jack Plotnick’s hilarious lampoon of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color. In Plotnick’s version of the 1965 series, viewers are once again taken behind-the-scenes to meet with Disneyland imagineers, only this time the polite veneer filtering the sexism and ill-advised design concepts (The “It’s a Small World” song should really be a registered torture device) are met head-on.”

Jack Plotnick takes aim at Disney’s Its A Small World

“The actor/writer/producer and comic genius Jack Plotnick has enjoyed a very successful and busy career. On YouTube now are Plotnick’s completely hilarious brand new parodies of Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color.  If you are old enough to remember the 1965 originals, you’ll start to realize how duped you were back then. As Plotnick lampoons these (precious) childhood memories  you’ll realize “It’s (not  just) A Small World After All” it’s also a sexist, racist patronizing one too.”
