10 Forgotten Disney Gems That Deserve Way More Love Than They Get

- Page 1

Disney

It's hard to think that a company as massive and prolific as Disney could put out anything that isn't a massive smash-hit. After all, this is the company that gave us masterpieces like The Lion King, Aladdin, Gargoyles, and DuckTales.

However, for whatever reason, sometimes the company's work failed to find an audience, or even just to be remembered as fondly as some of their other stuff. In the case of these 10 shows and movies, chances are you haven't seen them, and you need to fix that immediately.

Robin Hood (1973)

This is my absolute favorite Disney movie and nobody seems to even remember it! It has everything you could want out of one of these: memorable characters, catchy songs, tense action, and lots of humor. It's basically perfect. Oh, and that catchy whistle theme song.

The Mighty Ducks (1996)

In one of the weirdest TV adaptations of a movie/sports franchise ever, The Mighty Ducks wasn't about a kids hockey team, but rather a team of hockey-playing alien ducks who come to earth to 1) save our world from the alien overlord that enslaved theirs, and 2) play some professional hockey. It's about as weird as it is awesome.

The Great Mouse Detective (1986)

Another absolute Disney classic that everyone seems to forget about, this cartoony take on Sherlock Holmes has some amazing performances and great storytelling, especially with the legendary Vincent Price as the villain, Professor Ratigan. Fun fact: Ratigan was one of the late actor's favorite roles, as he'd always wanted to be in a Disney movie.

Adventures of the Gummi Bears (1985)

Who would have thought that a cartoon based on a fruit-flavored candy would be so compelling? The Gummi Bears got into all sorts of epic adventures, and the show was an absolute treat to watch.

We'll be seriously impressed if you remember all of these next ones...

Sure, It Was A Wonderful Kind Of Day, But Where Would The Cast Of Arthur Be Now?

Elwood city was the place we all wanted to be. It was filled with the best cast of characters ever, and we would have given just about anything to attend Lakewood Elementary School with Arthur and his friends. The Read family was one that we all had a strong connection to. Whether you favored Arthur or D.W., you probably related to both of them on different days. The supporting characters on the show are iconic, and even though the show has been on for over 20 years, it's fun to imagine what would have happened to the characters if

7 Cartoon Moments That You Didn't Realize Were Actually Really Messed Up

Cartoons are pretty much a staple for every kid. We all had at least one that we were completely obsessed with, but more often than not, we watched dozens of different shows. The thing is, these cartoons aren't all as innocent as they may have seemed. There were a lot of moments or episodes that actually were a lot more scandalous than what kids our age should have been watching. I mean, technically we didn't notice or understand, but these cartoons found a way to add some really interesting or mature things into these cartoons, sometimes without even mentioning it.

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of
