valentine’s series 7: what disney taught us

Here is a quick run down on the Disney animations that I have seen. I won’t go ahead and rant on the ones I haven’t seen, not that there are many of those.

* good girls cook and clean and sew, and sing while doing so (Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, Sleeping Beauty)

* most fathers are bumbling idiots, loving yes, but still pretty much idiots (Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella)

* the good fathers are dead or bewitched (Lion King, Bambi, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty)

* it doesn’t matter if you lie, cheat, steal or generally fail at life, you’ll still end up with the hot guy because … well, actually, because he’s the only guy in the story (Ariel, Jasmine, Belle, Mulan, Bambi) … (ok i’m kidding about bambi – he’s a dude)

* everyone is beautiful and can sing (all of the above)

* there is never a reason to end up poor and single and paying the consequences for your past actions. magic does not equal social justice (also all of the above)

* there actually are people on the earth that are bitter enough to spit on children’s fairy tales (ok i made that one up too)

* for every situation you find yourself in, there is a song with fully orchestrated score and most likely will win a grammy (i actually do kinda believe this more or less)

I’m sure I’ll think of more – feel free to add your own moral to the story too! It’s fun for the whole family 🙂
