Hidden Sexual Messages in Disney Films





HalfBloodPrince
It's something I'm sure you must have heard of before. The little, often single frame length "messages" in certain classic Disney films, usually sexual in nature. Some of these you may have heard of, and some may be new to you. To think these were put in to influence children or take over their minds or something is bullshit; probably the result of a bored Disney employee who added a little something in a frame.

Quote:
The Lion King

Shortly after the scene in The Lion King when Simba, Pumbaa, and Timon look at the stars and discuss what they are, Simba flops near the edge of a cliff. Some observers think the cloud of dust he disturbs forms the letters S-E-X. Others suggest that the letters are actually supposed to be S-F-X, inserted by a special effects team member. The letters are visible if you know what to look for, but it's impossible to say if they were animated intentionally.

The Rescuers

In the original Rescuers movie, as Bernard and Bianca fly on Albatross Air, a naked woman briefly appears in an apartment window in the background. This is one of the few verifiable rumors. In 1999, Disney was forced to recall its home video release when these hidden frames were discovered.

The Little Mermaid

The original promotional poster for the movie and the cover of the VHS release featured a shimmering castle. Upon closer examination, one of the castle's towers appears to look like a penis. Some were sure this was an intentional sexual message. In an article on the veracity of these hidden message rumors, Snopes.com interviewed the original creator of the promotional materials; he claims that it was merely the accidental product of a late night at work. In a castle with spires that are already phallic in nature, it was only natural for one to look a bit more like the male genitalia.

However, The Little Mermaid is the source of not one, but two persistent penis-based rumors. During a wedding scene, as a disguised Ursula is about to marry Prince Eric, many viewers claim that the minister has a visible erection. While it's true that the minister displays a bulge below the belt, it's actually one of the minister's knobby knees. HalfBloodPrince: I saw this one on YouTube, and trust me it's an erection. It can be argued to be a knee, but the animation of the knee "wobbling" is made to look like an erection forming.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? was a unique mix of live-action and animation, and featured a veritable who's-who of animated characters. In a scene between Donald Duck and Daffy Duck, some people hear Donald use a racial slur against Daffy. It's most likely that Donald's tirade is the usual unintelligible gibberish that the character turns to when angry.

Another Who Framed Roger Rabbit? rumor says that viewers get an extra peek at the voluptuous Jessica Rabbit in one scene. After a car accident, Jessica's dress slips up her legs. On the LaserDisc release, some viewers noticed a few frames where her underwear disappears. Whether it was a coloring error or an intentional insertion of nudity is hard to say.


The above copied is from here but you can find these examples on many other sites.

Just search for these on YouTube, you'll find them. At the end of the day, they don't do much besides make people look back at them and think "hah". What do you think?

I think it's pretty ridiculous to call these "hidden sexual messages" or whatever...Disney's the most wholesome thing there is. The thing with the letters "S-E-X" sounds like it was contrived by someone with nothing better to do than study frames of Disney movies...as for the other stuff - a castle tower that looks like a penis? PLEASE. Have you noticed how many things look like penises? Water bottles, hot dogs, you name it. Were all of these things designed with a sexual conspiracy in mind, too?
Nutteloos
If the above is all they can come up with, that's pretty pathetic to be honest. Only 'the rescuers' might have some merit of truth in it which has already been acknowledged.

Again with this crap? The Rescuers is the only one that is actually real, where it was acknowledged and corrected by Disney, and what it was is unmistakable. The rest is just people seeing these things because they are already looking for them. If you watch the Lion King, you will see "sex" in the dust because you are expecting it and looking for it. Otherwise you'll see what is actually there: simple wisps of dust.

Interesting Story.

awz, Could someone post some screenshots of those seens if you have???

Since I don't have those movies, And do not plan to DL them just to see those hidden frames, It would be a great help[ if someone can post the screen shots Rolling Eyes

This website has all of the pictures. You just have to click all of the right links. WARNING: Two of the pictures do contain nudity for sure. All of the other pictures are questionable. If you don't wish to see it, then don't look at it.

Even if you dont see it the eye sees the hidden frame and it creates desire.
Maybe this is why disney did it.
Technically it is impossible that it is a mistake.
evilgeniuself
I disagree, since anything can make mistakes. Also, not everything that is a phallic symbol now was a phallic symbol at the time these were made, so things being interpreted like that is just a result of the viewer...

Ha, i just saw the sex dust picture from the lion king... And it is clearly the work of an undersexed imagination. On the other hand the penis in the little mermaid is a damn accurate looking one.

Its a crazy argument to suggest these are deliberately added, and it would take a hidden orgy scene in snow white to convince me otherwise.
tingkagol
Even if these were intended, there's still nothing wrong with sex.
Insanity
I think people are getting a bit too overanalytical for Disney films. I mean, what do they really hope to gain by putting in subliminal messages concerning sex in their movies? Maybe they secretly want to ruin the minds and innocence of our children? Seems kind of far fetched to me...

You saw the word "sex" in the dust because you were expecting it and looking for it. Studies have shown that if you are looking for and expecting to see something, you'll likely see it. This dust issue is one of those. Because it kind of looks like the word sex, even if it's just wavy dust, you'll see the word because that is what you are looking for and expecting.
deanhills
I don't understand the point of these analyses. What are they trying to tell us? That Disney tried to put something evil in the movie and tested to see whether people had spotted it? What's wrong with sex anyway, why make it sound evil? None of it is logical to me. Kids loved the movie, and they were focussed on the enjoyment of it.
tw34kfr34k
LOL! funny find,never noticed that
There's also a porno movie floating around,
with all the disney characters
Arseniy
Don't know, don't know...
I think that all those were either accidents or jokes of animators, I don't think that scenarists were thinking of inserting some stuff like that into the cartoon for children. Or they were really crazy...
soljarag
I just looked at the VHS tape I have of The Little Mermaid, and yes, there is a penis on it!
Flakky
The cool part is that Disney has a great reputation for kids and that these contrasting things occur only make it more exiting Smile
imera
This is a pathetic excuse to get angry at Disney. Even if those things are put there as a joke or 'mark' on the movie I am pretty sure kids would not see this or react at all, it's only adults that react like this.

Miastake or no mistake... They are some nude scenes.

And ya, Some cartoons have sexy characters. Whether its Disney or not Wink
chrimson
I have a feeling you are over seeing things, yes they may have hidden messages, but i doubt they are meant to be sexual.

A Naked woman appears in a window how is that sexual, nudity is a natural thing and it does not become sexual unless you think of it as sexual. Which basically makes this a case of the eye of the beholder.

If you can make this arguement about a cartoon picture you can make them about most of the worlds landmarks mainly Americans, it is hard to draw cartoon castles and depending on the timing and budget they may have not had enough time or skill to draw a better one so they may of had to do a quick one and thats how it turned out, that doesn't really make it sexual.

Disney have done a lot of things but i doubt the put sexual meanings intentionally into movies for young children.
Lucy
wow lmao ... some people are such introverts.. how perverted can a person be to turn harmless children movies into this..
