The Disney Sigh

December 2, 2012

It is a special reaction. Where one must sigh in exasperation, shake the head, all while saying “oh, Disney…”

I had one of those moments the other day when I was watching Fantasia. Hadn’t seen it in a long time.

Then I saw the part of the Nutcracker Suite segment with the mushrooms. You know the ones. They have diagonal slits for eyes. The caps are really wide like those hats. They dance around in a perpetual bow with hands pressed together.


The same reaction as to the crows from Dumbo. Or the Siamese cats from Lady and the Tramp.

Though it was the Pastoral Symphony segment, preceded by a description of that segment in which the word “centaurette” was used, that made me want to slap someone. -_-

One thought on “The Disney Sigh”

  1. Disney’s latest thing they’ve done that annoys me? I bought a DVD of 101 Dalmatians recently and I went to watch it with my younger sister. Preceding the film, they added in an anti-smoking message because one of the main characters’ running gags involves smoking a pipe. Are they really that head-up-their-ass that they feel the need to bend over for the P.C. police by putting out this pathetic attempt to justify an otherwise funny character point? Seriously, how stupid do they think kids are?! The movie isn’t shoving a package of cigarettes into the hands of five year olds and telling them to “smoke up!” No child in the history of ever has picked up a habit of smoking from 101 Dalmatians. Disney’s the one making an issue out of nothing. You know what is encouraging smoking with younger crowds? The smoking age that glorifies tobacco with the classic “forbidden fruit” effect. But no, the anti-smoking nuts will never acknowledge that. They’d rather go far out of their way to find completely ridiculous ideas as to why young people are smoking to the point of blaming a freaking Disney movie.
