10 Scandalous Hidden Moments in Your Favorite Disney Movies

Rumors of inappropriate or scandalous moments in Disney films have been circulating for quite some time. It's not surprising that animators do have some behind-the-scenes fun. After all, it can be rather tedious trying to animate a film frame by frame. Adding these hidden moments is a great way for them to joke around or perhaps get even with their bosses.

Aladdin and the Balcony

On the balcony, Aladdin attempts to calm Rajah, the tiger. Jasmin comes out onto the balcony, and a voice says "Take off your clothes." You'll have to turn the volume up to hear it--it's subtle. Some people say the words could possibly be "good teenagers take off their clothes," while Disney claims that it actually says "Take off and go."

Because of the controversy, Disney cut the line from the DVD release.

The Little Mermaid's Original VHS Cover

One of the biggest and most famous scandals occurred with the beloved film, "The Little Mermaid." In the middle of the castle, in the background, there is a large golden penis. The artist himself actually revealed this detail to the public. He had just found out that he was being fired, and to get even he drew in a penis and then notified the press after the VHS was distributed. It created such a scandal that Disney re-did all of the covers and re-released it. You'll have to find the original cover to see this scandalous moment.

Hercules's Cradle

Hercules's Cradle

In "Hercules," Zeus makes the baby god a cradle out of clouds. As he does, a penis appears at the top of the cradle, grows, and then drops down. Disney claims that people see the strangest shapes in clouds. Unfortunately for them, this is an animated cloud, and it's obvious that it's not just an innocent little pillar.

Hercules and the Muse's Dress

"Hercules" has yet another scandalous moment when the Muses begin to sing "Zero to Hero" after Hercules defeats the Hydra. After the line "is he bold," one of the muses steps up and her dress flies open. The scandalous part is that she isn't wearing underwear. The moment is brief and easy to miss, but unmistakably there.

Scandalous, Disney. Very scandalous.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Jessica Rabbit

There are a lot of scandalous moments in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," especially when it comes to Jessica Rabbit. But one of the more hard-to-catch moments happens when Jessica Rabbit and Bob Hoskins hit the light post. Jessica Rabbit flips out of the car and spirals out.

As she does, her dress flies up, and she is clearly not wearing underwear.

The Rescuers and a Topless Woman

When Bernard and Bianca are flying through the city, they pass by a number of windows. At approximately the 38 minute mark, they pass a topless woman. It isn't just a vague topless woman--there is detail. Once this was discovered, Disney recalled the movie.

However, you can still see this moment in older versions of the film.

Lion King and Sex in the Sky

When Simba lays down on the cliff, a puff of dust swirls up into the sky. The dust forms the word "sex" for a brief moment. It caused a fuss, and Disney could not really explain this moment away.

Some also say that hidden in the face of Mufasa is the outline of a woman in a thong.

Lion King and Can You Feel the Love Tonight

Just in case you weren't clear on what kind of love they were singing about in "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," the word "sex" appears twice. The first time, it appears in the flowers in the foreground. They come together to form the word "sex." Later, when Simba and Nala jump into the water, the splash on the left again forms the word "sex." It's over quickly, so you'll have to watch carefully and have be ready to hit 'pause'!

Santa Claus

Santa Claus

"Santa Clause" would seem to be the ideal children's movie. After all, it's about Santa. Well, aside from the fact that Santa dies and Tim Allen has to take over, there's another rather scandalous scene. The number that the wife calls when she needs help is actually a phone sex service. This is an instance where Disney never issued an official statement addressing the issue.

Little Mermaid and the Happy Minister

The enchanted wedding between Ursula and Eric holds another scandalous hidden scene in "The Little Mermaid." The minister appears to be sporting an obvious erection as he reads the vows. Disney responded at once and claimed that this was just supposed to be the minister's knee. The placement doesn't work though. Since then, several of the animators involved in the film have come forward and admitted that it was indeed intended to be an erection.

Scandalous moments in Disney films are not as few and far between as one would imagine. There are probably even more out there that remain hidden in our favorite iconic "family" films.
