“Why Don’t You Do Right” - Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
The movie is 25 years old, and this scene is still amazing.
When did all of these Disney animated movies show up on Netflix streaming?
Just added The Great Mouse Detective, The Fox and the Hound, Dumbo, and The Aristocats to my queue. Gonna go spelunking to see what else made it in…
ETA: AND THE MUPPET MOVIE!!!
Yup. Disney sure was racist before they added a black woman.
Because everyone knows that the only races there are in the world is black and not black.
While I love Princess and the frog, the idea that Disney hadn’t done any other racial differences is mindblowing. I mean really?
Add to that the “Ooh, mixed race couple! How inclusive!” argument.
The last one isn’t even the same fucking species.
The last line, oh my gosh, I’m cracking up!
Oh what the hell, folks. ”G*psy” is a fucking slur. ”Atlantian” is FUCKING MADE UP. Pocahontas is FULL of bullshit stereotyping. So is Aladdin. I don’t know enough about Mulan to comment, and I have heard Lilo and Stitch complimented, but.
A HANDFUL OF SKETCHY EXAMPLES =/= NO HISTORY OF RACISM.
Even if all of these were SUCCESSFUL examples, racism isn’t something you turn off. ”I did some things right, so every wrong I’ve ever done is magically erased!”
PS: ARIAL IS WHITE. SHE IS A WHITE MERMAID, but STILL WHITE.
I can’t even with this ignorance.
Nope, no history of racism here.
“Why Don’t You Do Right?” by Amy Irving (Jessica Rabbit)
From Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
I guess this is tangentially related to Alpha Flight, but I’m mostly posting it for the big Sunfire fan on my dash, because there’s part of me thinking “Nah, this has to be nonsense”. But no, I’m seeing this on multiple websites.
On the one hand, Disney mining Marvel’s back-catalog for little known properties not obviously connected to the big movie franchises sounds awesome. Maybe we’ll get Slingers, Power Pack, or Livewires on the drawing board next. Or — dare I say it? — the Runaways movie might go back into production if this does well.
On the other hand…well, it’s a Japanese superhero team whose best-known incarnation was written by Chris “Wolverine’s a samurai-ninja-ronin and this story needs more Yakuza!” Claremont. Yeah…
So Disney’s helping push a release for the animated Mahabharata.
So. Much. Archery porn.
‘Scuse me, didn’t mean to drool…
Mulan From disney, she’s in my top 3 fav disney Female characters : D
i’ll make a man out of you
Harvey Fierstein singing “A Girl Worth Fighting For” still makes me giggle like a drunk ferret.
