(Photo : reuters) Minnie Mouse and crew get a 'slimmed down' makeover for Barneys' 2012 holiday fashion campaign.

New York's Barneys' annual holiday campaign features a well-known cast of characters - but with a new physical twist. Classic animated Disney stars (Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Goofy...) are all featured in the high-fashion campaign, but... they're skinny. That's right, Barneys put the Disney crew on a strict diet, and most Twitter fans are pretty unhappy about it. What do you think? Check out some of the sample pics here:
