Disney Movies of Old

(The real Pocahontas)
I love that this blog let's me express that crazy rambling and often non-sensical inner monologue that up until now has remained, as it probably should, strictly inner... an example of which would be the lengthy photo caption from my last post wherein I babbled on about The Little Mermaid and Sebastian the crab whom I somehow mistakenly remembered as being Jamaican rather than French.... because a Jamaican accent and French accent are, like, you know... virtually interchangeable right? (just nod and smile)

It is not suprising that I sometimes get my Disney characters mixed up, after all I grew up watching a whole pluthera of animated movies- being of that generation who enjoyed both the big budget animated Disney movies like Lion King, Aladdin, Beauty and The Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Toy Story as well as the classics like Snow White, Pinocchio, Lady and Tramp, and The Jungle Book.

I was thinking of Disney movies (or I guess I should say animated feature films) that I once loved but have since forgotten about like "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", "The Wind in the Willows", "Oliver and Company", "All Dogs Go To Heaven", "The Land Before Time" and so many more.
One of my latest and probably all time favorite characters (though he is not officially Disney) is the little squirrel in the movie Enchanted. I am in love with Pip!!

Check out this scene wherein Pip tries to warn the prince that his attendant (the man trying to stop Pip from talking) is secretly working for the wicked witch and trying to kill the princess with a poisoned apple!

Too cute for words!!!

Is there a movie that stands out from your childhood? A character? A song like Colors of the Wind (Pocahontas), I Can Show You the World (Aladdin), or my favorite....

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts... didly dee! There they are standing in a row... bum bum bum....

All together!

Big ones! Small ones! Some as big as your head!!

(*groan* "Oh I'd never have to do this for Mofasa!")

Now please excuse me, this walk down memory lane has lead me to watching the classic 1989 coming of age hit, "She's Out of Control" staring Tony Danza!


  1. I thought that Sebastian was jamaician too! You're not alone. I havn't seen all dog go to heaven in YEARS! I loved that movie as a kid. Oliver and Company was my favorite movie as a kid. As a kid I had the first 9 land before time's. I love the classics and if I have any younger family around i'll use them as an excuse to watch disney movies.

    Oh! Last year in spanish I learned how to sing colors of the wind in spanish and got to watch pocahontas.

  2. My childhood was a bit longer ago than yours. Snow White (Whistle While You Work), Cinderella (and the little mice who call her Cinderelly), Sleeping Beauty.

  3. Oh, I'm a disney junkie - that stuff was like gold to me as a kid. Still love going to Disney World... :-)

    Favourite movies? Old - the Jungle Book and newer - The Lion King - I sing those two lines of the coconut song all the time! I still need to see the Princess and the Frog. I'm worried I'm going to be disappointed...

    I also loved all of the old Disney shorts with Mickey, Donald and Goofy. I wonder if you can buy those on DVD...must go google that!

  4. I think I watched the best OLD movie from Disney ever.(for me)Yesterday was the first time I ever viewed it..."Ride a Wild Pony" it was made the year I was born and I loved it!!!!
    Check it out!

  5. Smile - I knew you wouldn't be gone for long...

  6. Ummm.... If Sebastian was French, why do I have a reggae music CD of his?

    'cause he was Jamaican, lol.


  7. LMAO!!! OMG!! He is Jamaican!!!! At least I'm not the only one who is confused! (the person who wrote that he is French is too!)

  8. I love Disney movies, but my favorite of all time is The Fox and The Hound, it is soo cute, and also the sword in the stone, the lion king, and many others

  9. That is such a post I would think about writing! I have so many random thoughts i think I should blog about and then only usually get the major ones out. It's hard to pick a favorite Disney song - but I've always been particular to the Little Mermaid. I just wanted to be her FOREVER!

  10. "I love that this blog let's me express that crazy rambling and often non-sensical inner monologue that up until now has remained, as it probably should, strictly inner" I'm thinking maybe this should be the bloggers mantra! Love it.......and the rest of the post naturally. LOL

  11. I thought Sebastian was Jamacain?!

    And what's wrong with you? I was sure I was going to see a Corey Haim post from you

  12. Maybe the person who thought he was French was getting Sebastian confused with Lumiere, the candlestick from Beauty and the Beast...who IS French.

    Just an idea...
