Falling = #1 Cause for Death in Disney

After a night of being violently ill from KFC (grilled chicken is a healthier choice my rump), I was weak and tired for most of the day today. So what does anyone do when they're on the brink of death? Watch a Disney movie. Since Disney is varitably owned by Pixar now, and refuses to put out anything worth watching any more, I found myself combing through the good movies from at least 2 decades ago... reaching from as early as 1950's to as far as the mid-90's.

And now I have this word of advice: If you're ever planning on living in a Disney movie, plan on dying from a fall. There's just no stopping it. A rediculous majority of characters die or somehow lose in a fall. Don't believe me?

The Rescuers Down Under
Beauty and the Beast
The Lion King
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Oliver and Company
Treasure Planet
Brother Bear

All of these had deaths from falls.

In Disney there are two options:

1.) Happily Ever After
2.) Fall to Your Doom

Take your pick.

  1. Yes, well, falling is the most convenient way to send the bad guy to his demise without actually having to SEE him die. ;) Notice they usually fall into fire, or fog, or such a deep pit that our vision of the bottom is obscured. So, though falling is probably equally as gruesome as other forms of death (depending on where you land), it's okay because Disney only shows us the fall and not the... splat. :P haha... out of sight, out of mind, I suppose.
