Depicting a Bulldozer In A False Light


Both David C. of New Jersey and John W. of Boston write in to advise of news of this lawsuit filed by Caterpillar against Disney, producers of the movie “George of the Jungle II,” for its less than flattering portrayal of the fine CAT brand bulldozer.

Thinking of this lawsuit and that filed by Wham-O regarding the Slip N’ Slide, I am reminded of the movie Repo Man, notable for many reasons, among them its gag consisting of the characters eating and drinking from containers labeled only as FOOD and DRINK. 

Alternately, movie credits might bear the legend “All products depicted herein are fictitious.  Any resemblance to real products is purely coincidental.”
