I tag every sapphic girl who reads this and wants to do it! Have fun!
whenever marginalized groups complain about the lack of content highlighting their stories and issues, they are told to “create their own content, then.” however, when they do, they are faced with overwhelming critique, overwhelming ignorance, or a mixture of both.
#10. Renewing Pickle and Peanut: I acknowledge from a business stand
point, if a show is popular, it should get another season. Pickle and
Peanut, however, is not that popular. Not only have ratings declined
since it’s premier, but less and less people are talking about it, and
when they do it’s not positive. But apparently, no one at Disney
Television give a shit as it’s been renewed for another season. If you
thought less people were watching it by the end of Season 1, then no one
is going to watch it at the start of Season 2.
#9. Giving up on
John Carter: After being in development hell for over 80 years (I’m not
kidding, Hollywood’s been trying to get this character of the ground
since the 30s), Disney finally gave John Carter his cinematic debut.
Despite under performing at the box office and getting mixed reviews from
critics, audiences were very accepting to it and wanted more. However,
instead of let’s say attempt to make an animated show based on it like
one of their other cult films, Tron. or having the character find new
life in video game form, Disney just gave the film rights back to Edgar
Rice Burroughs’ estate. Really? After decades of being stuck in
development hell, John Carter is just thrown back in? I know Disney lost
money on the film, but they could’ve saved the character from falling
into obscurity again by making a tv show. But, that’s reality I guess :/
Ripping Off Ren and Stimpy: I’ve talked about this before, so I’ll keep
it brief. Disney is a company that has made a name for themselves in
pushing the boundaries of animation and story telling. So they should be
more than ashamed of themselves for mooching off the success of their
competition instead of making their own Goddamn show -.-
Ending Wander Over Yonder: Just, why? About a year ago, Disney decided
not to renew Wander Over Yonder. Why? Honestly, I don’t know. I know
Craig McCracken said they “felt 2 seasons and 80 cartoons was enough,”
but he never explained WHY they felt that. And no, it wasn’t because of
the ratings nor was it because Disney didn’t like it. It really does
baffle me how Phineas and Ferb got 4 seasons and 222 episodes before
getting the axe (not bashing the show, I actually like it, I’m just
trying to prove a point) and yet they felt Wander Over Yonder was just a
2 Season show and a 3rd would spoil it. What?!
Canning Potentially Good Sequels: I know the direct-to-video sequels
are notoriously unpopular, but that doesn’t mean they’re all without
merit. Cinderella 3 told a fairly sold story and had some genuine stakes
involved. Tarzan 2 you could argue is just filler, but kid Tarzan does
go through a real character arc in this movie. And Return to Neverland
is my personal favorite of the bunch and that’s mainly because of Jane.
Disney Toons had plans for sequels to Dumbo, Chicken Little, Meet The
Robinsons, and Pinocchio among others before John Lasseter shut them all
down. I respect his dislike for these films, but I honestly believe
some of them could have been more than just run of the mill. Like, more
adventures with Pinocchio or The Robinsons; I actually wanted to see a
Mulan 3 (Mulan 2 isn’t in my top 10 Disney sequels, but I don’t think
it’s that bad). At the very least, these movies could’ve been decent
with the right amount of effort, but like with Circle 7, John would like
the rest of the world to pretend these ideas never happened.
Bad Timing on Release Dates: Winnie The Pooh, Muppets Most Wanted, The
Rescuers Down Under, The Rocketeer and Treasure Planet. You know what
these movies have in common? They were all released at the worst times
for their respected genres. I’m not a box office analyst (check out
Grace Randolph for those statistics; yeah, yeah I know “she’s a whore”
“kys” blah blah blah -.-), but last time I checked, you shouldn’t put
something as innocent and family friendly as Winnie The Pooh up against
something massive like Harrry Potter. Nor should you release a goofy
family comedy like the Muppets in the spring if you expected similar
results like its predecessor. Also, who’s idea was it to release one of,
if not THE best Disney sequel the same week as Home Alone? I don’t know
about you, but that’s not very smart if you ask me. Why? Really think
about it; this was Disney’s first sequel and it’s set in the desert of
Australia. They put in alot of effort to make this an improvement over
it’s predecessor; from the animation, to the characters, to the story,
even down to the humor. All that effort and yet they decided to release
it around the holiday season, as opposed to, I don’t know-SUMMER?! I
know no studio is perfect, but there should be no reason why they fucked
up these release dates so bad.
#4. Sitcom Overload: You know how
many sitcom are on Disney Channel right now? 6. And they’re all about
preteens or teens going through their everyday lives with wacky hijinks
and some character bonding along the way. To be fair though, they are
better than the Stupid Sitcoms on Nickelodeon, but the quality of them
isn’t the problem. The problem is that there’s so many of them and not
enough animation. Like I said earlier, Disney has made a name for
themselves in pushing the boundaries of animation and storytelling. So,
where the fuck is the animation on television? Answer: Disney XD. The
reason why this is bothersome is because when people think of Disney,
they think of the animated content first and the live action stuff
after. Disney has made some good live action movies and tv shows for
sure, but they’re not nearly as remembered as the ones that are
animated. As such, the Disney Channel is generally regarded as the
Disney Sitcom Channel. Yes, from a business standpoint, sitcoms are
profitable, but too many sitcoms can damage you brand as an animation
company and in a sense it has. Also, on a minor note, can we change
Disney XD back to Toon Disney? I’ve honestly never understood the name
change so can we turn it back? No? Worth a shot :/
Controversial Jokes: I know comedy is subjective, but that doesn’t mean
joke’s can’t cause an uproar if handled poorly. And boy were these
handled in the worst way possible. Making a joke about models barely
eating on paper, sounds exactly what you think it sounds like: a joke
that inadvertedly sounds like an eating disorder joke. And it was. The
joke was from an episode of Shake It Up and while that joke was removed,
this wouldn’t be the last time Disney did something like this. Did you
know Jessie has a character who eats a glutten free diet and they made
an episode revolving around this? No? Because alot of angry parents saw
that and Disney was forced to change it or risk getting doxed. Disney
should really remind themselves that they can’t make light on topics
like these as it does more harm than good. They didn’t joke around with
racism, so eating disorders should obviously be a no no.
Producing Dumb Ideas for Bad Movies: Mars Needs Moms, Alexander and the
God Awful Title, The Santa Claus 3, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen
and Prom. All of them were terrible ideas made into equally terrible
movies. Mars Needs Moms, from the title alone is their worst film, no
contest. You know it’s bad when the fucking title sounds like a 4 year
old thought of this film. The plot is nonsense, the characters are
awful, not even the animation does it any favors. This isn’t the first
time I’ve ranted on this film, so let me explain the biggest problem
with this movie: the concept. Why would an alien race need our human
mothers to grow the species? They were doing just find before.
Alexander, meanwhile, is based on a kids book. Wouldn’t be so bad if A.
The title wasn’t shit and B. The plot wasn’t a light version of
Everybody Hates Chris. I’m aware The Santa Claus has its fans, so it
wouldn’t be fair to put it on the list because of my hatred for the
film. Objectively, however, The Santa Claus 3 should not have been made
with the generic It’s a Wonderful Life plot. I don’t care if It’s a
Wonderful Life is a classic, it should not be remade and retold over and
over again. The other two were based on a joke or dare, I swear. Who
was asking for a movie about going to the prom? And don’t people hate
Lindsay Lohan? And drama queens? Especially if they’re teenagers? I’ll
refer you back to my point at #s 4 and 8 because I hate repeating myself
#1. Ignoring Song of the South: In the Tom and Jerry
Highlight Collection, Whoopi Goldberg did an introduction explaining why
the cartoons featured in the DVD included Mammy-Two Shoes despite her
being criticized as a racist stereotype (I’m with BenTheLooney in that
this criticism is bullshit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl01VhWbC74).
Whoopi said that taking her out of the DVD would be the same as
pretending she didn’t exist. Don’t get me wrong, racial stereotyping is
bad, but so is pretending films and cartoons involving black characters
didn’t exist. Case in point, Song of the South, I feel, is one of
Disney’s underappreciated films simply because of the portrayal of
blacks in the Post-Civil War era. I get it, slaves were miserable after
the war; that said, that’s not what the film’s about. Its about a boy
living on a plantation who listens to the stories of Brer Rabbit, told
by Uncle Remus. The film was last seen in theaters in 1986 and never
received a home release in the U.S.. Bob Iger calls it “fairly
offensive” and you can debate all you want, but not giving this movie a
home release isn’t helping your case. That only makes people want to see
it more. Whoopie Goldberg herself wants this movie to have a home
release. Sure you can just bootleg it or watch it online, but if you
were to own it on Blu-Ray, you could get some insight into the process
of making this movie, a brief history of racial stereotyping in movies.
They still play the Zip-a-dee-doo-dah song, and they put alot of effort
to the theme park attraction. This movie should not be ignored because
the company wants to stay family friendly. Families don’t keep things
from each other, just saying.
Conclusion: I love Disney, just
about everyone loves Disney; but they’re not perfect and to think
otherwise would be foolish. Pointing out their flaws and criticizing
their actions is the only way they can get better. I’m aware of the
Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar problems, but I wanted to focus on Disney
specifically. Know any other Disney fuck-ups? Let me know in response to
this post. Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you soon.

Y’all always talk about how good Disney was back in the day but you SLEEP on the famous Jett Jackson, aka one of the first ever live action Disney Channel original sitcoms aka THE FIRST Disney Channel original sitcom with a black lead (RIP Lee Thompson Young).
Y’all especially sleep on this extremely important and still extremely relevant episode from 2000 called ‘Food for Thought’.
See, The Famous Jett Jackson is about a boy who stars on a very popular tv show who convinces his show runners to move the show from Hollywood and back to his home town and how different his life is.
But in this particular episode it starts with Jett doing an interview in Charlotte where he is really troubled when the interviewer starts to remind him about the privilege he has being a successful young black man and how that isn’t the reality for most young black men where they’re from and how he’ll never really understand that. Jett is really bothered by this so he decides to brave the city alone and see what the interviewer was talking about. He encounters another young black man around his age who is experiencing a very different life than he is and helps show Jett what black people without the privilege he has really go through
But most of all I want to highlight a specific scene that really struck me when I was rewatching this. Jett is trying desperately to call his dad on a pay phone after losing his wallet and is frustrated when the phone is broken, so he slams down the receiver. That’s when two cops show show up and force him to the ground, physically hurt and try to detain him.
F o r s l a m m i n g a r e c e i v e r.
The only reason they let him go is because a taxi happens to drive by with an ad for his show on the side and one of the cops recognises him. It felt so real.
Here are some quotes from the episode that really struck me and are still so relevant:
‘The fact is, despite how far we’ve come in the last 40 years, a young black man living in the community is still far more likely to find himself in the back of a cop car than the back of a limo,’
‘Just another black man dead in the streets, you know. TV news didn’t even bother to cover it.’
‘Why you harassing the boy? The kid’s just tryna call his dad.’
‘You think I don’t know what it means to be a black man in America?’
‘If those people who can help, don’t, who will?’
WATCH THIS EPISODE. DON’T SLEEP ON JETT JACKSON. DON’T SLEEP ON THIS EPISODE. DON’T LET DISNEY FORGET IT.
This is the kind of shit Girl Meets World needs to be addressing. This is what I want on the show. This is what Disney used to be. This is what Disney needs to be showing now.
Who the fuck puts that fancy of chairs at their dinner table? Who the fuck puts nice upholstered chairs at their dinner table? Seriously, those are some sodmething nice chairs. those are the kind of chairs that go in your living room, not your dining room. What if you accidentally spill or drop something on it? That shit will take some serious elbow grease to get that stain out. Though if they’re rich enough to have such nice chair at the dinner table, they can probably afford to get them professionally cleaned.
Hell, maybe it’s just me and my personal experience. Hell, my house doesn’t even have a dining room - we just have a kitchen with a big table in it. And 2/3 of that table is used for storage 90% of the time because the house is so sodmething small.
I’m curious, though, about what you guys think. My house - the one I’ve lived one from birth - has always been a crapfest surrounded by million-dollar houses that I’ve never set foot in. Hell, my basement is basically one giant room with no walls (lots of support beams, though) with a cement floor. Is this type of furnishing common among the upper middle class/upper class? I don’t go to others’ houses pretty much ever, so I don’t have much to go off of.
What’s your opinion on the matter? I’d love a bit more insight into stuff like this.
ok if nobody else is gonna say it then i have to… there is literally already a Disney channel sitcom about a team of superheroes and their non-super support team, living on a floating water base from which they monitor/protect the earth
and im so fucking grateful someone with more talent than those writers is gonna produce content around that concept
Ok wow, what a difference they made in Chelsea in only two episodes. Episodes 1-5 she was too dumb, almost annoyingly stupid, episode 6 she was dumb, but just dumb enough, kinda like the Chelsea we all know but episode 7, my god!!!! I loved her in this episode!! Finally they are showing a Chelsea who is able to take care of things without destroying them, who is being an adult and who is being responsible. She was amazing. She didn’t say one stupid thing but it was in my opinion still the best episode, funny yet (very) important and valuable. Finally they are showing that Chelsea can help Rae as much as Rae is helping her. That is what was lacking in the previous episodes, she just felt like a burden, until now. She took care of the kids, the dance and Raven. Sure she can say some dumb stuff every now and then because that’s who she is but keep this mature and responsible Chelsea. I mean it was still her, some puns here and there, still so kindhearted, everything was her except the dumb stuff she says and I am so fine with that tbh I would have no problems if they kept her this way. I loved it. I could easily get used to this Chelsea.
Harper seriously needs to calm his tits. How can anyone be annoyed at something with that face? Spyder could be holding me at gunpoint (not that my little arachnid would ever do that) and I’d still want to snuggle with him.
