  • has anyone noticed?

    I dont know why im starting a thread, and maybe yall have already talked about it... but has anyone noticed that in almost every Disney movie with a lady in a leading role (i.e. cinderella, lil mermaid, aladdin, etc...), there's no mother! i was thinking about today... the only movie that i can think of is sleeping beauty, but shes not really raised by her mom, and Mulan, but the real connection is with her father... Why do you think that happens? So little girls will know to appreciate their moms? i dunno just thought it was so strange how that idea kept repeating itself...
    snow white
    cinderella
    alice in wonderland (i believe it was her sister reading to her)
    the little mermaid
    beauty and the beast
    aladdin
    pocahontas

    And other movies had something where a parent was killed or just never there, like bambi, lion king, sword in the stone, dumbo, pinnochio, etc..
    did i miss something?

    maybe they were at a convention on how to be better mothers? and there's going to be a documentary about it? or perhaps Disney writers/animators/producers who pay voice actors, are just lazy. there's no father in rescuers down under!

      Aladin was supposed to have a mother, check out the DVD special features...

      It has a great song that was edited out of the story called "Proud of Your Boy"...

        And Cody was out of CONTROL! Boys need a father .... and girls need a mother ........ and really, boys and girls need both parents. Not having both can lead to interesting opportunities for storytelling ......... hence the common theme ......

          I think that Walt Disney and co had a secret mother/whore complex and just dealt with his hatred of moms in general by completely erasing them from his films.

            haha, lets hope not... I know there would be a different story if there were a mother/father present, like in bambi or lion king, but just a crazy thought i felt like sharing *zips up mouth and throws away the key*
