When she's not on Sunset Boulevard professing her love to Evie Starlight you can probably find her in line for Popcorn. The only thing she loves more than the mouse himself is her pup, Macoco.

It’s about time there’s a company that knowtices epileptics exist. And not all epileptics are disfunctional. Maybe other companies will notice what Walt Disney is doing and follow them.
