29 Naughty Hidden Secrets In Disney Films

Unless you live in a cave, you’ll know all about what Disney’s all about. It’s Disney. The Mouse House. The greatest producer of family entertainment that there ever was.

It’s also, on occasion, a peddler of absolute filth.

Some of these sexy gags spotted by viewers are, if you’re to believe the Disney insiders themselves, ‘accidental’.

Others, on the other hand, have been very deliberate. You may never have noticed, but it’s almost guaranteed that your favourite Disney movie features a reference to some obscenity or another at some point.

Join us in taking a look at 29 of Disney’s most controversial hidden ‘secrets’ – but don’t blame us if it ruins your childhood.

29. The Lion King’s ‘sex’ scene

Hailed as one of Disney’s best animated efforts, The Lion King is also one of the Mouse House’s most notoriously cheeky films.

In one scene that comes midway through the film, a melancholy Simba gazes up at the night sky.

As he lays down with a thud, Simba kicks up a cloud of dust, which appears to spell out ‘SEX’.

Or does it? Not according to ex-Disney animator Tom Sito, who says the cloud is much more innocent than that.

“It doesn’t say SEX. It says special effects. It’s SFX,” Sito claims. You’ll just have to take his word on that one though.

28. The Little Mermaid’s bishop gets a little too excited

The Bishop in The Little Mermaid appears to enjoy officiating weddings a little more than he should.

During the scene in which Prince Eric prepares to marry ‘Vanessa’, it used to appear that the bishop overseeing the ceremony had gotten a little too excited.

As the bishop stood before the soon-to-be-betrothed and says “Dearly beloved”, his groin region appeared to bulge and inflate.

To some viewers, it was a sign that this man of the cloth was taking the wrong kind of pleasure in his work.

Former Disney animator Tom Sito says the ‘bulge’ is actually one of the bishop’s knees, but this didn’t stop one viewer from attempting to sue Disney over the image not being ‘suitable for use and viewing by young children’.

Is it just us, or does the poster and home vid cover art for The Little Mermaid look happy to see us?

The art depicts the main characters against the backdrop of Atlantica, which here seems particularly phallic. And just in case you’d like to take a closer look at the offending item specifically, then here you go:

Was it simply an innocent accident? Not according to longstanding rumour, which has always suggested that a ticked-off Disney animator inserted the penis intentionally after being sacked.

It turns out the rumour was just that, though. Not only was the poster artist not fired, he wasn’t even employed by Disney in the first place.

The artist in question has since admitted that the artwork was a result of him rushing to complete it over an all-night design session – meaning any penises in the poster are mere Freudian slips at best.

26. Jessica Rabbit exposes herself

Since the release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit in 1988, Jessica Rabbit has become one of the most iconic symbols of female sensuality in real life and in the world of animation.

Jessica was intentionally drawn with one of the most unrealistically desirable bodies in the world, all curves and slinky physicality.

It appears even the animators who created the character couldn’t resist fantasising about Mrs Rabbit.

At one point in the film, Jessica crashes out of the cab she’s been riding with Bob Hoskins’ Eddie Valiant.

As she’s thrown from the car, Jessica’s legs open to reveal more than Mrs Rabbit would probably prefer her public to see. It’s a Basic Instinct moment in a film full of risqué humour, atypical even for those filth merchants over in the Disney animation house.

24. Cars 2 features a ‘lemon party’

Lemons1 29 Naughty Hidden Secrets In Disney Films

First thing’s first: if you don’t know what a ‘lemon party’ is, for your own sake, do NOT start Googling it now.

ADVERTISEMENT

All you need to know is that ‘lemon party’ refers to a widely shared shock image of three elderly gentlemen in the act of…we’ll call it lovemaking. With that vague, cautious introduction out of the way, let’s move on to one of the most outrageous Disney in-jokes of them all.

Vladimir 29 Naughty Hidden Secrets In Disney Films

Cars 2 has as its villains a bunch of old cars – nicknamed the Lemons – involved in an international fuel-based conspiracy. In one scene, these old geezers can be found having a party featuring lemon hats, lemonade and a table full of lemons.

“Isn’t this a great party?”, one attendee asks, in case anybody in the audience hadn’t caught on to what was going on.

16. For a niche crowd the lemons in Cars 2 have a lemon part. Do not Google lemon party. 29 Naughty Hidden Secrets In Disney Films

As we can’t figure out any other reason why these villains would be called the Lemons in the first place, why they would all be older gentlemen, or why there would be a scene involving elderly characters at a ‘lemon party’, we’re just going to have to jump to this conclusion: Pixar is full of perverts.

Well, we’re all adults now, so let’s not beat around the bush any longer: those women are prostitutes, and our boy is in a brothel.

22. Baby Herman commits sexual assault

Who Framed Roger Rabbit’s ‘child actor’ Baby Herman is not, it’s safe to say, as innocent as he looks.

Baby Herman isn’t actually a baby at all, but a middle-aged ‘toon with a gravelly voice, taste for cigars and an eye for the ladies. In his own words, Herman has a “50-year-old lust and a three-year-old dinkie”.

Still, Herman’s shortcomings don’t stop him from acting like a borderline sexual predator all through the film, regrettably.

In a time before the #MeToo movement began, in one scene from the theatrical cut of Roger Rabbit, Herman can be seen peeking – and, more disconcertingly, poking – up women’s skirts.

However, Pixar took things to a whole new dimension with the release of Toy Story 2, which is the first film in the series to introduce cowgirl Jessie, a vibrant, vivacious kind of toy who’s always ready for action.

Basically, she’s perfect for man’s man Buzz Lightyear. And damned if he doesn’t know it, too.

Buzz’s intro to Jessie is awkward: he’s bashful, while she’s more interested in helping Andy’s barking dog Buster to get out of Andy’s room.

She promptly springs into action, skateboarding onto the doorknob and opening the door for Buster to escape.

All Buzz can do, meanwhile, is watch, his mouth agape, as his wings become helplessly erect.

The embarrassment on that toy’s face says more than he could ever convey in words.

1942’s Bambi, only the fifth animated feature film to be released by Disney, continues to be a talking point for modern audiences, and not just because of that scene where Bambi’s mum gets killed.

No, if Bambi is a talking point today among the denizens of the internet, it’s because the film might be a kind of subtle sex education for the whole family.

In a sequence that seems genuinely NSFW in the right – or quite possibly wrong – context, we find Thumper, Flower and their partners getting freaky, cartoon-style.

Relying largely on visual comedy and stunning animation, Ratatouille often prefers to let the images do the talking.

Brad Bird’s film isn’t, however, immune to a raunchy and honestly pretty weird dialogue exchange about veg. As he sneaks around the kitchen pantry in Gusteau’s restaurant, wannabe chef Linguini is caught by the joint’s actual chef, Skinner.
