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 It may contain outdated cultural depictions”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?
