I think it’s pretty clear why Disney didn’t ultimately go for this – seeing good-guy kids put rocket-boots on their cat for cheap laughs may not have the greatest outcome when show to a theater full of young boys. The cat comes to no harm in the film, but the thought of the real-life substitutes that curious kids might come up with for rocket boots is more than just a little ugly.

Baymax is here to remind you that this was just “beta testing.” And I give him props for not straining to call it BAY-ta testing.
