Believe it or not, I’ve never seen Bambi.  Even so, to think that a Disney film would be considered horror seems odd.  I’m actually not a cartoon person.  Not even as a kid.  The only one I really liked was Winnie the Pooh.  (And all the holiday cartoon specials, of course.)

When you look at all the classic Disney cartoons, which, in all fairness, were originally written by the Brothers Grimm, there are very grim elements in almost all of them – torture being a common theme.  They were meant to teach lessons and I know they’ve done that for as long as they’ve been read. 

Do you think we’re just overly sensitive, and too politically correct, in regards to the themes in these stories today?  Given what our society is like today, it makes me wonder.  I’d like to know what you think.
