Nobody's going to peach on ya!
We're still working on some live-action Disney favorites, and today's film is Bedknobs and Broomsticks .  So many good things about this movie - the credits are done in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry! Magical suits of armor beating up Nazis! Wiggly rabbit...

Someone's been in the catnip again

If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will
Disney movies are actually pretty great for the animal rights movement.  Cute little anthropomorphized animals abound!  And the humans, they're so rotten!  Bambi's Mother - killed by hunters.  Dumbo's mother (well, and all the elephants) - imprisoned by the...

Down the Rabbit Hole
When I decided to use Disney movies as part of my theme for Vegan MOFO, I went and looked up a list of all the Disney movies on Wikipedia.  I haven't counted them all, but there's well over 200.  Ay yi yi!  How to narrow this down?  I could do just animated...

Caramba! Now we're three gay caballeros!
The next movie I decided to cover from the Disney film archive is The Three Caballeros .  Believe it or not, we actually own a copy of this, because my husband is just that nutty about Disney stuff.  Jose Carioca, Panchito Pistoles, and Donald Duck!  Caramb...
