I kinda like Oswald's underground status. He got a meaner attitude, he's from another area, got surrealistic aspects which are absent from today's Disney... The little guy is perfect for animation buffs, but also he have a lot of potential for Disney to try out new stuff, no absolutely-familial or only-for-kids things. He's the kind of obscure character that appeal young adults... like me.
Mickey and even Donald got kinda washed up because of their official mascot status. Oswald is still pure. He's the sort of character who could smoke, handle guns (I'm not asking for a immoral character, just the usual kind of these days), get beheaded and put his head back on...
He's not really the kind of character I'd expect to get a ride. He's not really a familial character. If Disney work him out to be a familial character, he'll end up as a Mickey Mouse with long ears. I prefer him as a character for the collector market and the underground scene, he get more potential that way IMO.
So far, I saw him as collector figurine, high parisian fashion shoes, and T-shirt where's he's a faded logo, or angry wearing boxe gloves. All these aims toward underground and collector market. If they work on animated films featuring him in the future, shorts made for the internet could be some solution to maintain his precious status. Appearing next to Mickey in some saturday morning show will make him the neighbor with long ears. I don't want him to be "updated" like Clarabelle Cow or Horace Horsecollar. These were sidekicks. Oswald is a star.
I agree with you on the fact that Oswald should remain as he appeared in the early 1900s, and act the same way but i just think that they should have him available for pictures in the Disney theme parks because i am so tiered of seeing mickey and goofy and Donald , i just want to see Oswald, if you know what i mean.

I mean, they got him back in 2006, and all these done is 'sneeked' him in to shows/movies/places, but why would they do that. If not a lot of people know him, then no one will know that is a character pop in, they will think it's a random one time character, the the ensamble in a play. They have to do more after they got him back, I mean, really
