  • News Disney apologizes for mocking children with gluten allergies on 'Jessie'

    In the episode, which first debuted on Video On Demand, a dorky 9-year-old character is being babysat by the main character, Jessie (Debby Ryan). After he gives a gift basket to a girl he likes, she threatens him with "some gluten-free knuckles" and then throws a pancake at him, which is played for laughs as he yells, "Gluten!" and then desperately wipes his face.

    Pecos Bill's a hungry cowpuncher from Texas
    And a rootin-tootin gluten eater, he!
    For every breakfast he had falafels
    With a couple hundred waffles
    And some pancakes, eggs n' coffee (never tea)

    So yippie-ki-yay, i-yay, yippie-ki-yo
    For the biggest chowhound west of the Alamo!

    While consumin' beans n' bacon down in Kansas
    Pecos thought some fresh-baked buns'd be real sweet
    And so he plowed a zillion acres and employed a million bakers
    Which is why the farms in Kansas all grow wheat

    Flippin' flapjacks on his way to Californy,
    Pecos' grub was swiped by herds of hungry mules
    And so he flour-rolled them burros
    And deep fried 'em into churros
    For dessert at the Big Thunder BarBeQue!

    So yippie-ki-yay, i-yay, yippie-ki-yo
    For the biggest chowhound west of the Alamo!


    At Big Thunder, Pecos ordered ribs n' biscuits

    But was told the only bread they had was corn
    He said "Lest you want some shootin'
    You'd best gimmie lots o' gluten
    Or you're gonna rue the day that you were born!"

    Once while gnawin' on some beef ribs in Big Thunder,
    Pecos heard a lawman say "Your guns are banned!"
    Without thinkin' shouldn't or should he
    Pecos drew on Sheriff Woody
    And he ran that big head out of Frontierland!

    So yippie-ki-yay, i-yay, yippie-ki-yo
    For the biggest chowhound west of the Alamo!

    "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."
