Many Classic Titles On Disney+ Include A “Outdated Cultural Depictions” Warning

Earlier this week, we reported that the original 1940’s animated classic, Dumbo, had a warning within its description on Disney+ saying:

“This program is presented as originally created.  It may contain outdated cultural depictions”

But this isn’t the only movie on Disney+ to have this warning, as many other movies from that era have also got the same warning, including:

  • The Jungle Book (1967)
  • Peter Pan (1953)
  • Lady and the Tramp (1955)
  • Swiss Family Robinson (1960)
  • Davy Crockett (1955)
  • Fantasia (1940)
  • The Aristocats (1970)
  • Mickey Mouse Club (1950’s)
  • Darby O Gill and the Little People (1959)
  • Davy Crockett – King of the Wild Frontier (1955)

This is similar to how Warner Brothers placed a disclaimer in front of episodes of “Tom and Jerry”, which also haven’t dated well.

What do you think of Disney adding these warnings?
