    Yes, but known entities that's been around for 86 years are not usually modern day theme park big budget attractions. The only reason we got Ariel 25 years later is because she's still selling merch.

    The only King Kong film Universal has ever released was the 2005 Peter Jackson film. Kong isn't owned by anyone, he's public domain.

    King Kong is more synonymous with Universal's theme parks than anything else.

    Umm, no they didn't. Radio Pictures released the film in 1933. Universal restored the original film (according to wikipedia), but they didn't release it in 1933.

    I am surprised to see you use the relatively unknown name of Radio Pictures when it's more historic name, RKO Pictures (Radio-Keith-Orpheum) is far more commonplace. I had never heard its other name of RP before.

    Before it was RKO, it was Radio Pictures.

    Right, the addition of (later known as RKO) would have kept me from having a shorted-circuit. ;)
