The interesting ending to that story was that Universal Studios heard about
the school and sent some of their own artists to the school to help paint
over the Disney characters and replace them with Looney Tunes which
Universal owns. So instead of Mickey, Minnie and that gang the kids enjoyed
Bugs Bunny and his gang.

An example of the lengths to which Disney defends its copyrights was in
Florida in the 80's. A daycare center had a mural on one of its playground
walls with disney characters. Disney threatened legal action to make them
either paint it over or pay royalties.
