Hooray! Under New Management's only good part was the first few seconds, when they played the old version, just to rub it in that you could have been enjoying yourself if you were watching the old show.
I'm just happy no(us parks) have tiki room featuring stitch. It's funny... love Gilbert Gottfried and love Rowen Atkinson but this show just did not work at all. Also I remeber it being very very short and stupid. I hadnt been on the disneyland one in a while, so I saw the show in comparison after visiting florida. It is a little outdated, but overall the show is great and the songs are very good as well, and I love the effects like the singing tiki gods as well as the fountain. However, I like the preshow in Florida cause it features the voice of Captain Zapp Brannigan from futurama... one of the best characters EVER!
^ Really? Didn't even know that. Now I dislike it more than I did before.
The semi sad part is, conceptually if you think about Zazu and Iago in the show it totally seems like it should work. I mean, there reatively well known characters, and they're both somewhat tropical... but it didn't mesh at all somehow. I think maybe the show is suffering from a bad script kind of like Stitch Encounter... but Stitch is an entirely different level of hell then Under New Management... cause UNM didn't try to kill my shoulders for no apparent reason.

Close, but not quite. You're thinking of Phil Hartman, who is in Under New Management, and was supposed to play Zapp, but died before any actual recording. So Billy West ended up playing Zapp (as well as Fry, Zoidberg, and the Professor), but is not in Under New Management, to my knowledge.
^ Well, yes, he was supposed to. An audition was done, but I've no idea if that recording survives. Presumably, Billy West's version of Zapp is similar, or perhaps even a tribute in some way to what Phil did. At the very least, it sounds like like they both did a "50% Captain Kirk, 50% actual William Shatner" sort of thing with it.
Fry's first name is "Philip" in tribute to Phil Hartman, by the way.
