Disney is Missing Out By Not Giving These 5 Classic Characters Their Own Games

Figaro (Pinocchio)

Figaro first appeared in the 1941 classic Pinocchio, where he (like Pluto) acts as a normal animal rather than sharing Goofy’s anthropomorphic qualities.  After finding movie fame, he appeared in many animated shorts as a foil to Pluto (most notably in Pluto’s Sweater, when Figaro ended up in a sweater Minnie had knitted for Pluto after Pluto had deliberately shrunk it in the rain). 

Disney has been very successful with domestic cats in The Aristocats and big cats in The Lion King. And I'd love to see a game called Figaro’s Big Adventure, where Figaro stows away on a steam ship from America to Italy, where he goes on a search for Gepetto. Such a game could perhaps have a VR expansion to allow the player to experience life as a cartoon cat and try their hand at outsmarting Pluto.
