Disney Sued for Duke Caboom’s Resemblance to Evil Knievel

TMZ has posted that Disney and Pixar are being sued by K&K Promotions for Duke Caboom’s resemblance to Evil Knievel.

Per the docs, obtained by TMZ, K&K say that Evel’s style, influence and even a nod to his famous stunt cycle toy from the ’70s is clearly sprinkled throughout the film — of course, Duke himself is dubbed as the greatest Canadian stuntman, and he even comes with an energizer to wind up and release his bike … much like the Evel toy from back in the day.
