I think it came out pretty good, it took me only two morphs to get most of Meryl Streep's features to show.
Zack Dillinger: I could imagine either Vince Vaughn or John C. Reilly playing Zack in a movie about his career.

Whitey Larkin: I could imagine Dave Coulier or Patrick Swayze playing Whitey in a Walt biopic.

Daniel Abbott
As a teen/adolescent: Maybe a mix of Robby Benson and Donny Osmond


As an adult: Maybe a mix of Eddie Vedder and Tim Roth


Rachel Stone
A mix Lisamarie Joyce and Demi Moore

Which works better for the 'real' Zack:

Whitey Larkin: I could imagine Dave Coulier or Patrick Swayze playing Whitey in a Walt biopic.
Same question:
One

or two

My gut feeling says to let Disney have Atari, but my brain tells me that I need to know what the other three companies own.

In other words, what do Berkshire-Hathaway, Anheuser-Busch, and PepsiCo own at this point ITTL?

Here are their OTL assets from 1978.
Pepsi: Drinks, plus some restaurant chains for some reason
Berkshire-Hathaway: A bunch of random shit
Anheuser-Busch:Budweiser, Corona(50% stake) and smaller brands. Also Seaworld for some reason.
 
It is being heard that an NHL-WHA merger is underway. Apart of the deal, Edmonton, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Hartford will join the NHL. The ownership of the Colorado Rockies will get an expansion team named the "Mountaineers" who along with the New Jersey Devils will join the league in 1981.
 
The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo as Disney characters would be pretty cool.
Yeah but Disney would probably never do anything with them. I do have a really interesting idea but it is reliant on if Turner buys HB. Pretty much he turns HB into both a major player in TV and film. So they practically become TTL Dreamworks but they have a massive TV arm with their films.

I support your idea. Just with Turner becoming a major studio all together by combining UA-MGM, and HB together.
 
Anytime. Something tells me the Toei magical girls end up being part of a group...right?
Well, 20TCF (20th Century Fox) was only able to get Akko and Chappy, ITC/ATV Animation got Sally and co-produce Cutie Honey and Megu, Queen of Flowers (Majoko Megu-chan), with the former also being produced by Century 21 (Garry Anderson's company) and the others (Ecchan, Mako and Limt) have't been brought over yet.
Sally, Cutie Honey and Megu had all become big hits in America, being ITC's first hit in America since The Avengers and they just signed a deal to co-produce 8 more shows with Toei.
 
Yes. Also I tried thinking on who could buy Hanna-Barbera and I can't think of a good idea besides letting Ted Turner buy it like OTL.
Well, maybe either CBS or Metromedia could purchase the company?
The Flintstones and Scooby-Doo as Disney characters would be pretty cool.
As a Disney fan, I have a very mixed opinion about them owning the company. ESPECIALLY considering the rivalry that Bill and Joe have with the two Walts!
