What do we make of the appearance of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Mickey Mouse et al at a Kim Jong Un-attended performance? A subtle sign of warming toward the U.S.? Or were the panda bear costumes (taken by some as a sign of respect/affection for China) all at the cleaners? I will go out on a limb and directly address the last line of the Telegraph article:
"It was unclear whether the Disney characters were officially licensed."I'm going to guess that they weren't.
