Beauty And The Beast (1991)

Rated G. If your kids dig podcasts, they can hear this one.

Whether it’s because of Stockholm Syndrome or just because the movie earned it by being good, people love Beauty And The Beast. It’s not our favourite cartoon of all time, but we certainly found plenty to appreciate in it, especially the (mostly) old-fashioned hand-drawn animation. We answered the question about whether or not the story has aged badly and we dug pretty deeply into the unfair ramifications of the vindictive hag’s curse. So ignore your children in the cupboard, mon cherie, but feel free to hunker down in your giant castle as the 380th Ellises’ Analysis hits you with a little of the Disney sing-song.
