Say it ain't so, Disney!
PUSH the talking trash can has been entertaining millions of guests to the Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, for 19 years. It has even participated in marriage proposals and has even been a ring bearer in a wedding. But now, it seems that Disney has "pushed" the radio-controlled robotic trash can out of the Magic Kingdom.
And that, according to WKMG Local 6, has got fans in the dumps. "I think they should bring him back. We're pretty depressed," said one fan.
A few weeks ago, rumors circulated online that PUSH the talking trash can is getting canned. Back then, a Disney spokesperson denied the rumors, saying that PUSH "isn't going anywhere."
But last week, PUSH was nowhere to be seen. According to Inside the Magic, PUSH has been "permanently closed" due to expiration of its contract.
Now, PUSH fans are pushing back on social media. The Save PUSH the talking Trash Can Facebook page has gotten more than 10,000 likes. It's been collecting dozens of photos of fans and video clips posing next to the iconic trash can in an effort to get Disney to bring it back.
