Alice Cooper Gets Animated

Alice Cooper, the Godfather of Shock Rock, will play an animated role in the Disney television series “Mickey and the Roadster Racers.” While Alice Cooper, who’s used electric chairs, creepy baby dolls, and plenty of fake blood in his stage show, may appear to be a strange bedfellow with the wholesomeness of Disney, Cooper’s character doesn’t completely stray from the rocker’s macabre idiom. He’ll play Alistair Coop De Ville, an old friend of Goofy’s Uncle. And even though his character may be benign, his look still bares some of Cooper’s trademarks, including a tall stove pipe hat with a snake in it. If you’re mad for Alice, you can check out the episode on the Disney Channel July 5th.
