If a magic slide isn't fantasy I don't know what is.
I've been watching The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with my 21 month old and I'm becoming more and more frustrated by the "Upslide".
When one person goes on the upslide, let's say Mickey, he sits on it backwards and the upslide pulls him up. When he comes back down he's facing the right way. Cute.
When multiple people go on the upslide (for example, on the episode Daisy's Grasshopper, see video )
Mickey is the first one on, but the also the first one off. I would have expected him to be the first last one off, and the Daisy, the highest up on the upslide, would be the first one off.
The only way it could do this is if it treated the entire person-load of the upslide as one entity. If this is the case, how big is the buffer capacity of the upslide? Have the inner workings of the upslide been explained in any Mickey Mouse episodes or books? Or is this one of Professor Von Drake's tightly kept secrets?
