Oh yeah, Jungle Book will always be a classic both for the quality of animation and the songs and story. Of course the sequel was a load of old cobblers (or was that Pinocchio?) and I'm sure it must be completely non-PC by now as well...but who cares. Still a movie I can watch again and again.

Thinking about it, are there any Disney films with happy families in, apart from maybe at the very end? There parents always either die during the film or they are already dead! Strange guy, Mr.Disney!!

Disney films promote all the best and all the worst about America in an extremely emotionally manner.

Corporate Disney, unfortunately, promotes all the worst. Google Disney's legal campaign against singer/songwriter/icon Peggy Lee. She had the smarts to insert a "and all new media" clause in her contract for the songs she wrote and sang for "Lady and the Tramp". When home video became lucrative, Disney tried to ignore her claims to the enormous profits they were making from her efforts. A very elderly Peggy Lee sued and Disney's lawyers tried to prolong the lawsuit until she died but she prevailed! Hail St. Peggy!

The Academy "ran out of time" for 2 or 3 seconds to run a picture of her in the "In Memorium" segment??? I really don't think so. Disney's vengeful tentacles reach everywhere. Now let's all join together in a chorus of "Fever" in tribute to the wonderful career of Miss Lee.

A friend and I were trying to think of the bare bones formula for making a modern Disney cartoon:
In a sad event, a young [something] loses/is separated from his [something] and is adopted by a motley group of [somethings]until he finds/is reunited with his [something]

So, "In a computor-crash, a young Palinite loses his Palin's Travel website and is adopted by a motley group of Monty Python fans until he finds the Palin's Travel website".

Something like that, eh? ;-)

Exactly like that, except everybody's got fur or fins and we don't say very much that isn't suitable for people under 13.
 
Re: first films by Spursfan on 26 April 2006 10:52am
 
Ok then - as above but "...a young palinite, who lives alone because of his extreme hirsuitism, and NEVER EVER swears or discusses adult subjects, ..." etc etc.

Better?
