S4E33 – Mu Lan

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. This has a guest spot in the edit making it clear that TERFs can get lost, a letter from a more-involved expert than us, and a just… huge amount of time spent in the Yikes door for a movie that we kinda thought was pretty fun.

S4E32 – Hercules

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. Now it’s time to check out the point where people kind of generally start making excuses for the Disney corporation’s attempts to regurgitate all culture as a reflection on how great it is that they’re doing that, and we talk about how good a job they do.

S4E31 – The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. Here’s a highlight, though, where the pair talk about The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a movie that seemingly lies very close to Fox’s heart, and even thrills Talen a little. Come for the use of cephalaphore, but stay for the discussion of evil jugglers.

S4E30 – Pocahontas

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. This time we dig into the follow-up to the Lion King, and while by definition that should be disappointing, we couldn’t necessarily be prepared for what happened. And what happened? Well, we don’t close the Yikes Door on this one.

S4E29 – The Lion King

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. And here we have to talk about something that’s internationally renowned, a multi-billion dollar franchise, and just one of the most acclaimed and successful movies of its genre and type of all time. Oh and just like, one of the most successful movies, period. It’s the Lion King, a boringly excellent movie with a lot of problems that seem pretty obvious to adults of our age.

S4E28 – Aladdin

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. It’s another weird one where the two relate strongly to how much they like this movie, how incredibly ahead of its time it was in some ways and then also the extremely yikesy air this whole thing breathes.

S4E27 – Beauty and the Beast

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end. This time around we see a movie where for once, Talen has a history, and there’s a bunch of great tech and voice development we don’t know yet. Learn about Pixar’s further involvement, lean away from the yikes, and consider how overrated something that changed the world can be.

S4E26 – The Rescuers Down Under

Come along with Fox (She/Her) and Talen (He/Him) as they dive through the entirety of the Disney Animated Canon, from the 1930s to the ignominous end.

And yet, despite liking all those things, Talen is REAL MAD. Why is that, you think?

Come along for the digression, again, into the idea of play and safety as fundamental to culture!
