The characters of nearly every beloved animated movie musical (from “The Little Mermaid” to “The Lion King” to “Frozen”) have not always been under the same house of mouse: they began in fairy tales and stories from the public domain.

But what about the public domain characters who have never appeared in an animated movie? In “Public Domain: The Musical,” characters from the bottom of the barrel audition with original songs to show why they deserve to have their own time in the spotlight.

"This is some goofy ass shit, best viewed with a drink or two bubbling away inside your body. It's fun, it's short, the songs are clever, and you'll be catching your breath from laughter. This is a thirty-minute show which wastes no time packing in the jokes. The Statler and Waldorf adjacent puppets are the first things I saw and already I knew I was in for a good time. Each character is given their time and a song, and then they're whisked away, never to be seen again. None of them outstay their welcome and are all excellently portrayed. I want to say my highlights, but saying who any of the characters are is a little bit of a spoiler. I'll just say the "hero song" is goddamn hysterical and the one about wishes is so, so clever it makes me mad that I didn't think of it. Also, Ember is a phenomenal performer and needs her own TV show. I'm not joking about this, she is astounding as a singer, actor, and comedian. If you don't enjoy this you probably are the sort of person who explains the intricacies of the tax code to five-year-olds."
