There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.

Amy Mebberson is a frequent staple of our Things We Saw Today posts, an artist who not only uses her spare time to create adorable Disney and Muppets crossover art, but who draws a lot of Disney stuff professionally, from being the regular cover artist for Boom! Studios' Muppets, Pixar, Darkwing Duck and other Disney titles, to her current stint as the artist on APE Entertainment's Strawberry Shortcake and Sesame Street comics. Mebberson took issue with Barney's New York's recently unveiled designs for a holiday window display using classic Disney characters like Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck. The problem was the drastic redesign that stretched the characters' limbs to creepy lengths and rendered Minnie and Daisy rail thin everywhere but their heads. So, she decided to provide an alternative.
I’m assuming the whole redesign is completely NOT about being faithful to the characters but simply using the Disney name to flog clothes. If that were the case, it would be perfectly valid from a business standpoint. But these aren’t the characters I love and I decided to try showing with a daily sketch on Twitter that Daisy & Minnie can rock haute couture without changing them into scarecrows or draining them of their charm & appeal.
