Israel Gets a Disney Channel

A couple years ago, a lovable giant rodent with a curious resemblance to a more famous lovable giant rodent joyously instructed Palestinian children to resist the Zionists on a Hamas TV program—or he did, until someone introduced the program’s producers to the concept of copyright infringement. But in September, your favorite pal Mickey Mouse will be speaking Hebrew, along with Minnie, Pluto, and the rest, as the Disney Channel launches an Israeli station. The Mouse House will be dubbing its regular programming, including live-action series such as Hannah Montana, and featuring original shows with Israeli actors as well. We can’t wait to hear what Donald Duck’s voice does with all those hard chs. So get psyched!
