I think I’m a pretty good and decent person and I grew up with a ton of stuff that people are trying to cancel, or have canceled. Like people want ‘Grease’ banned… huh?
Children’s movies that I grew up with and my own kids grew up with are being looked at in a different way. They’re being labeled with negative stereotypes.
I’m the type of person that just doesn’t watch what I don’t like. Like ‘Caillou‘, heck to the no, none of that was playing at my house. Another that we didn’t watch was ‘Rugrats’, but I didn’t tell other people not to watch it.
Disney+ has removed several movies from children’s profiles on its service. Movies that I never would have dreamed would be labeled as negative, they’re classics.
Before they removed them from the children’s profiles, they just showed a content warning on the films. They are now removed from the children’s profiles.
However, you can still access the movies from the Disney+ service, just not with the children’s account. So, you still have a choice and they have not been completely removed or canceled.
Which films are included
The movies that have been removed from the children’s profiles on Disney+ are the following:
- ‘Dumbo’ – 1941
- ‘Peter Pan’ – 1953
- ‘Swiss Family Robinson’ – 1960
- ‘The Aristocats’ – 1970
As I said, you can still access them on Disney+. However, there is a content warning that reads as follows…
This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together. Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe.Disney+ content warning
‘The Aristocats’ happens to be a favorite at our home. We own all of these movies and my kids love them.
