Top Ten Times Disney Has Been Accused of Using Subliminal Messages or ImagesEven though Disney is known for family friendly entertainment they have had their share of controversy. One being they have been accused of using, mostly sexual, subliminal messages and images in their movies and in many other of their products. This along with other controversies have lead many to believe that Disney is some evil satanic corporation set out to corrupt and mislead innocent children. I personally believe that most of these are young fresh out of college animators having a goof or the artist's hidden personal "autographs". However what that being said there is one that makes my stomach turn. It's so bad and inappropriate I don't think TTT's would let me post it. So I didn't. I think I'm already pushing it with some of these already on the list. But......(lol) I will maybe try to post it later and see what happens.
As Bianca and Bernard are going through the city in a sardine can, naked women can be seen twice through open windows in the city. Disney admitted the images are there and claims they were added in during the post-production process. Disney has since removed the images.
The cover art for Euro-Disney's Bladid shows Mickey gripping a penis that is formed from Mini's dress/body. To me this is the most disturbing one on the list.
On the original VHS cover a golden penis can be seen in the "phallic" castle. Disney claims the cover artist didn't work for the company and has since changed the cover.
The word "sex" being hidden seems to be a recurring theme in Disney's animated movies. There are multiple instances in The Lion King. There's a cover in Tangled formed from Rapunzel's hair wrapped around Flynn (this one is disturbing because it's so obvious), and there's one hidden in Frozen's famous moment when Elsa sang "Let it Go" (around the part she sings "I don't care what they're going to say!").
During her fire dance, Esmeralda at moments appears to be naked (many claim even as far as nipples being shown) with the word "sex" allegedly written above her breast within the flames.
In the movie there is a scene where the car Jessica is riding in crashes into a light pole and Jessica is ejected from the car. As Jessica is tumbling and spinning around her skirt flops open and you can see a "beaver shot". Disney was made aware of this scene and since edited it.
One of the most popular. Before he lays down to look at the stars, Simba slaps his paw down on the edge of a cliff. As the dust that comes off the ground and floats off it spells "SEX" before dissipating. There's definitely lettering in the dust cloud but Disney claims the letters spell "SFX" for the special effects company that worked on the movie. However many people claim the words "sex" and "lie" are subliminally hidden through the whole movie.
Wow. I never noticed that before!
Along with the many alleged drug references the "rabbit hole" really resembles a vigina.
This one seems too blatant to even be subliminal. Even if it wasn't intentional, how can they not see or noticed it when they approved that poster?
This is a popular one. I personally believe this one is non sense. When Aladdin is confronted by Jasmine's tiger on her balcony and the scene cuts over to Jasmine coming outside, Aladdin's muffled voice can still be heard. Many people believe you can hear Aladdin say, "Good teenagers take off your clothes". Disney claims the line is "Good kitty, take off and go". Disney has now changed it to a simple, "Down kitty".
Another popular one that's been debunked. During the first wedding ceremony the minister appears to grow an erection. However when watched carefully, when they cut to different angles, you can see it's actually his knee that's protruding.
