Where the Wild Things Are… Carol or Moishe?

NOTE: A  NEWER/BETTER POST on this subject of the name change to Carol from Moishe IS HERE…
Really, don’t read this one, read the new one.
For some reason this has turned into movie week around here.
If Spiderwick was Open Captioned (instead of Roscoe Jenkins) at our local plex, I might be able to weigh in on that one.

You can see it on the box in this pic. (BTW: The action figures very nice, but easily broken)
And it’s called Moishe in many other places as well… http://images.google.com/images?q=moishe+%22where+the+wild+things+are%22&um=1&hl=en
