12 "Adult" Moments In Classic Disney Movies You Totally Missed As A Kid

- Page 1

Disney pretty much defined all of our childhoods thanks to their beloved, amazing movies that not only entertained us with their gorgeous animation, but also through morally upright messages that taught kids things like persevering through hardship and doing the right thing.

However, Disney also seemed very aware that there were adults watching these with their kids, so they had a tendency to sneak some more... "adult" humor into their movies where they could. In the case of these 12 moments, it's a miracle we never caught on as kids.

How about when the twin cars flash their headlights at Lightning McQueen. Get it?

It took me years before I found out why the girls all hated Aladdin so much.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and 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.

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.
