I don't see how that's relevant. If you make something that looks too much like a copyrighted Disney character, you run the risk of Disney coming after you with a C&D or worse. If you're OK with this risk, then you don't have to worry, but if you want to avoid it you are better off erring on the side of caution.
In any case, ignoring a C&D or legal threat is not a viable strategy when it comes from a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate.
