In another scene, Baby Herman fondles a woman as he passes under her dress and there is graffiti on a wall including a plug for a brothel run by Allyson Wonderland. The scenes, which Disney animators apparently felt were virtually subliminal and could not be detected by the naked eye, caused embarrassment at the Burbank-based studio--which is known worldwide for its wholesome, family entertainment. Word of the controversy also triggered a run on the laser disc at local video outlets. Fleming said that while unnoticeable at the usual 24 frames per second, the scenes are visible when viewed frame by frame, as is possible with laser-disc players and four-head VCRs. Thousands of the discs have already been sold. Disney officials were not immediately available for comment, but were said to be holding meetings to see what, if anything, should be done. Other scenes said to have been in the original film, according to Fleming, was one in which a weasel, told to frisk Jessica, puts his hand down her cleavage and emerges with a steel trap snapped shut on his arm. Disney weathered that. Hot Property. About Us.

Several brief, off-color jokes are allegedly hidden within the film, detectable only by viewing the film frame-by-frame on a high-quality VCR or laserdisc player. Some of these gags — if they ever indeed existed — were removed before the movie was released to the home video market. The scenes most often mentioned include the following:. Animators have traditionally amused themselves by slipping occasional racy frames or other gags into their work, frames which flash on the screen far too briefly to be detected by theater audiences. With the advent of home video and laserdisc players which allow viewers to examine scenes frame-by-frame, these gags can be spotted by sharp-eyed film watchers. As the potentially deadly virus spread from Wuhan, China, to the rest of the world, misinformation tagged along. As is often the case with statistics, which ones you choose to consider makes a significant difference. The former vice president has repeatedly claimed to have been arrested while attempting to visit the incarcerated Nelson Mandela. The facts show otherwise. A popular meme appears to have conflated two different tax proposals from the Democratic presidential candidate.

What could be safer than a Disney cartoon? The Disney brand is all about fun for the whole family and the Mouse House works hard to maintain that image. But over the years, a few not-so-G-rated moments have popped up in the Disney shorts and movies. Check out ten of the most censored moments from Disney classics. During the scene where Prince Eric nearly marries a magically disguised Ursula, the bishop officiating the ceremony appears to be a little too excited about the impending nuptials. Whether it was an innocent error or someone trying to slip a suggestive image into the film, Disney has since edited the scene to remove the bulge. Contrary to popular belief, the artist who created the image was neither about to be fired nor trying to cause a problem for Disney. He claims not to have noticed the similarity until the offending image made national news. Later home video releases feature a revised castle on the cover without the suggestive tower. The second controversial line is a bit more mysterious.
