I don't think so.Disney characters have some special place in every one's heart.It is because of their classical touch they will be in everybody's mind always.New things may come and go but old is gold.

While I love Disney films, I have a few anime movies that I also love. But it is funny that Disney is the one who brought over the Hayao Miyazaki films to be distributed into the US. They had them dubbed in English and released on DVD. I have seen most of them. From the extras on some of the DVD's, the animators and some of the directors and producers really like the films and consider Miyazaki an inspiration. As for the classic characters, we do not see much of them in any films today. It is possible that they have these characters in movies or cartoons that are only on DVD. I think the only place we are exposed to the classic characters are at Disneyland and Disneyworld.

I think there will be an era where the classic disney characters will pretty much disappear, especially in the classic anim format. But then I can see that at some point in the future there will be a resurgence in popularity and this is when I can see those classic Disney characters making a big comeback but maybe in a new format. I think you would have to be quackers to abandon Donald altogether.

My cousin still watch Disney. Mickey mouse and others. ^_~ When they grew a little. like turning 8 years old and up, they will switch to Japanese Anime. That's what I think. Disney, Cartoon Network and/or other American Cartoons is to entertain a child. Unlike Anime that has more complicated story line. ^_~

I believe that Disney characters are going to struggle to win the war between the new aged Anime and the classic disneys. I myself however prefer Disney hands down! They seem more family oriented and not violent like most of the Japanese Anime is! So I hope that Disney characters can last through this, I know for sure my child will be watching all of our classics and not these anime shows on television these days! Plus, most of the classic disney movies are all coming out on DVD so that's an added plus! :)
