Disney is a favorite of ours, almost like a family. And as a family, you have to deal with all your relatives -- the good, the bad and the strange. Never forget that Uncle Walt was a product of his time, and as such, his cartoons contained some material that would shock our politically correct 21st century sensibilities.
Anyone can whistle or sing their favorite Disney song, but for every 'Under the Sea' and 'A Whole New World,' there are dozens of orphaned tunes that never made it into their respective film. Too bad, since many of these unfortunate victims of time constraints or script rewrites are really catchy.
Disney is as American as apple pie and other clichés, but most of the Disney animated motion pictures are based off of folktales from other countries. Though made with an English-speaking audience in mind (watch the way the characters move their lips) Disney has always understood the value of foreign markets and translates their films for viewing in other countries.
As we showed in our lost Disney songs list, no Disney film is set in stone from start to finish. Plots get written, songs get dropped and characters get redesigned. Looking at early Disney concept art is like finally reading that novel that your favorite movie was based on only to discover it's totally different. Still, there's a simple charm in seeing these characters immediately after being birthed, before they were fine tuned, polished and marketed through endless merchandise.
If you're like us, then you too have a love/hate relationship with sharks, aka "the assassins of the sea." We're utterly terrified of them, but we can't help but watch when they rampage a shore and snack on some unfortunate swimmers. Hollywood shares our love/hatred of sharks -- namely, they love the money they make for them and hate them enough to kill them off in multiple gory ways (impalement, explosion, electrocution).
The cover for 'Death Spa' really is a work of art. Let's start with the beefcake in the background. We're sure everyone would like to do this to the jocks from their own high school so it's really more amusing than scary...
