happily ever after
This early-year Mother Goose and Grimm strip is funny for a couple of reasons. The first is obvious: Jokes about post-matrimonial fizzle for Cinderella, Ariel et al is sure to bring a chuckle.

The second is more subtle, but perhaps richer. Since ABC is owned by Disney anyway, the real joke is that the ladies of Wisteria Lane are just as much the property of the Magic Kingdom as their animated brethren.

And less valuable property, at that; at least for the long term. It’s unlikely the “Desperate Housewives” characters will be iconic commodities decades from now. Whereas the super-sorority of Disney cartoon princesses should still be raking in the cash well into this century.
