In the 1970s, Disney was expanding by hiring new animators like Tim Burton and John Lasseter and also alienating Don Bluth and a third of its junior animators. Nonetheless, it managed to make a beautiful film about how true friendship can survive anything but adversity.

I sit down with Stargate Pioneer of GonnaGeek.com to discuss his history with The Rescuers and a thorough discussion of all the people who died right after this movie. I'm sure this movie wasn't cursed. Sure of it.

This week, I dive into the beginning of the Dark Ages of Disney. In the middle of the Bronze Era, we have a story about 2 mice rescuing a child from an abusive, horrible woman, but it's set with overtones of women's lib and international cooperation.

I sit down with Dylan Lincoln of Plot What Plot podcast to talk about the many life lessons that Winnie the Pooh gave us and the many that we learned in school that were never useful.


Content warning: There's a brief mention of adult themes and we think Winnie the Pooh wouldn't be friends with racists. You shouldn't either.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh has the unique honour of being the only package film released after the wartime era, being the last feature-length film that was personally worked on by Walt Disney, and it has the first work the studio completed without any input. It's hard to tell which of the stories here has more turmoil, the story of A.A. Milne and Christopher Robin or 1977's genre-sweeping changes.

Disney's Robin Hood was created as the ultimate show of reverence for Walt Disney. They incorporated ideas he'd held close since the 1930s to create the tricky, sexy fox that is Robin Hood. This movie drips with Gen X/Xennial nostalgia, promotes kindness and distribution of wealth, and also shows how poor people are treated in prison.

After Walt Disney's death, the studio struggled to find its footing without their patriarch. With their first original story, they created the first animated movie without Walt Disney's oversight. Did they succeed or did they create a movie full of cringey memories?

On the heels of the abysmal failure of the Sword in the Stone, Walt Disney Productions decided to recreate the work of a culturally-appropriating Imperialist in the Jungle Book. The production of this family favourite was then interrupted by Walt Disney's death.

The movie itself is true to its roots with messages of racism, segregation, and misogyny. What happy memories!

Back from my December hiatus, I dive headlong into the end of the Silver Era of Disney with the Sword in the Stone. The film follows a non-legendary version of young King Arthur as he's sexually assaulted by squirrels, determines that evil is a mental illness, and repeatedly dodges physical abuse from his adopted father.

With Walt Disney afraid that his beloved animation was dying, the studio undertook a touching family story complete with love, support, infant death, and literally skinning puppies. Dive in with me to discuss how 101 Dalmatians changed the face of animation and possibly millions of children's attitudes toward mortality.

Peter Pan is that ultimate blend of nostalgia and "oh my god, why was this part of my childhood?" It has a charming storyline featuring a boy who doesn't want to grow up who kidnaps children, cuts people's hands off for fun, and lives in a hangman's tree. It also has a wakeup call level of severe racism and more amazing violence we all missed as kids. Learn all about how this movie was made and why you don't...
