'Hannah' Creators -- Mouse House Screwed Us

4/10/2010 1:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409_hannah_montana_exTwo of the three co-creators of Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana" show claim they are victims of a vicious mouse attack.

Barry O'Brien and Richard Correll claim they were contractually entitled to a piece of the "Hannah" pie, but in the bonus department Disney wouldn't budge. All the more insulting, given "Hannah Montana" is a billion dollar franchise.

Both men are suing Disney -- and in Correll's case not just for his bonuses. Correll, who also worked as a director on the show, claims he was given the boot because he complained to the Writers Guild of America.

The creators are suing for millions.

There's a third creator on the show, and if you're wondering why he's not part of this lawsuit .... well, he already sued.

TMZ, you are really writing stupid ass stories lately. Why haven't you even reported about Elizabeth Taylor supposedly getting married again? Why don't you quit all the stupid stories about Sandra Bullock, Tiger Woods, and Erin Andrews (or whatever the fvck her name is)? People are bored!

Speaking as someone who has creatively helped this show from the beginning, I wish I (and my union) had negotiated a sliver of this back-end pie...

Not news, nothing to see here, please move along.
They don't call it "Mousewitz" for nothing, Disney is well known as liars and thieves. They have 400 lawyers on staff, so they screw you and say "go ahead, sue us".
The BIGGER news would be this: "Producer/Writer Paid as Promised, Praises Disney's Honesty", but you will never see that headline.
Never forget, these are the azzhules who sued Kenny Loggins for mentioning "Winnie the Pooh" in one of his songs after they stole Winnie from its creator by falsifying documents and perjured testimony.

Apparently not everybody has got the word yet that Disney is a rathole full of thieves and crooks.
They have 500 lawyers on staff so when they screw you, which they will, they say "go ahead and sue".
These are the A-holes who sued Kenny Loggins about using Winnie the Pooh in a song lyric after they stole Pooh from its creator.
The real news would be "Producer/Writer Paid in Full, Praises Disney for Integrity", like that would ever happen.
It ain't called "Mouse-witz" for nothing.
