That is surprisingly wholesome of Dr. Hartwell to encourage Daniel Abbott's hobbies for the purpose of his future.Parent Teacher Conference
February 12, 1974
The Gregg School
Virgil Ramsay Hartwell
"Good afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Abbott. Please be seated. From the looks of Daniel's grades this term, the subjects where he most excels are doing silly voices at lunch hour and drawing cartoons in his notebook. Here is a brochure for the Richard Williams Studio in London if that's what he wishes to do when he graduates."
"Are you calling my boy a bloody idiot?"
"On the contrary, YOU are the bloody idiot. Your son has a lot of potential as an artist and I suggest you acknowledge that fact."
That is surprisingly wholesome of Dr. Hartwell to encourage Daniel Abbott's hobbies for the purpose of his future.
This sounds like perfect documentary material to me.For more context....
"Doc Hartwell had a Jerry Lewis/Nutty Professor vibe to him that kept us all engaged in our learning. During that time, Doc was a newcomer to teaching...about 40ish...the rest of the faculty, including the headmaster, were in their sixties or seventies. From a kilometer away, Doc could sense Daniel's frustration over being creatively stifled by both his father and the other teachers, whom Doc deemed to be stuffy and out of touch. The headmaster even came out and tried to accuse Doc of being a 'hippie agitator,' which was utter bollocks. Had it not been for Doc, I don't know how Daniel would've escaped his incestuous lunatic parents."
- Ian Ledbetter; Daniel's childhood friend
At this rate, I'd be surprised if Daniel didn't develop either a drinking problem to cope with his past, or extreme levels of PTSD. Because I'd probably get both if I were treated like he was."I can't stress enough how important Doc Hartwell was to Daniel's life. My parent teacher meeting was right after Daniel's. As my mum and I waited for our turn, we could overhear Daniel's father, Lt. Abbott shouted 'no son of mine will ever be a wimpy, bloody cartoonist.' That really boiled my blood. How could a parent not appreciate their own child's gift for art? Daniel made many drawings in his notebook that I thought were marvelous."
"Later that night, we heard a pounding on our door. It was Daniel. He had a faint bruise on his cheek and a black eye. He said his parents got into a verbal fight about his future and his father turned violent. We telephoned the police right away and Daniel spent the rest of the week in hospital to receive treatment for his wounds."

yeah that could be a possibility if @OldNavy1988 wants it in this timeline belle with a southern accent.At this rate, I'd be surprised if Daniel didn't develop either a drinking problem to cope with his past, or extreme levels of PTSD. Because I'd probably get both if I were treated like he was.
On a lighter note, Dolly Parton as Belle? That is an interesting difference for sure!
What would happen to G.I. Joe and Transformers considering Marvel Productions had involvement in both of those series?1) Most likely, it'll still be the Boba Fett segment from the Star Wars Holiday Special that becomes the first animated project based on the show. It is likely that Marvel Productions could directly evolve from Grantray-Lawrence before that.
