A Disney Tale: A poor woodcutter, Geppetto, wishes on a star that his wooden puppet boy could be alive. A blue fairy grants his wish and the puppet, Pinocchio, is given life. On a series of adventures, he learns about right and wrong on his journey to becoming a real, human boy.

Disney Heroine: There is no real 'heroine' in this story and in fact, the only female characters are the Blue Fairy and Cleo the fish.

Disney Hero: Pinocchio is the 'hero' of the story, in as much as he is the main character. His heroic actions, though, don't really occur until the final act of the film where is saves Geppetto from the belly of Monstro the Whale. He is an interesting character. Gullible to a fault, naive and innocent, he only narrowly escapes various terrible fates through the efforts of Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy. Were it not for them he would either be Stromboli's captive or transformed into a donkey and working in a salt mine. He is, though, much more endearing than Snow White as a main character. He is like the naughty child you can't help but have a soft spot for, particularly as the audience knows its the evil adult characters who are responsible...

A Disney Tale: A young princess narrowly avoids death on the command of her evil stepmother. She shacks up with a group of mining dwarves but the stepmother finds her and puts her to sleep with a poisoned apple. The dwarves put her inside a glass coffin until a prince comes and kisses her, releasing her from the spell to live happily ever after.

Disney Heroine: Snow White is the first Disney princess, but having viewed this around the same time as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty (my daughter is going through a Disney Princess phase) I would argue that those princesses are what we think of when we talk about Disney Princesses. Cinderella and Aurora are twee and feminine, but Snow takes it to the extreme. She is far too twee for my tastes, talking to the animals, cleaning and cooking for the dwarves and fawning over the first man she sets eyes on. I'm also not sure how old she is supposed to be. Apparently she is supposed to be 14 which is an increase from the original fairy tale where she is around 7, an age deemed too young for the story's plot. Quite why 14 is a more acceptable age for a young girl to go off with the first man she meets (and hardly exchanges two...

I thought the TV show Once A Upon A Time would be a good show to get into since ABC is owned by Disney, I thought it would give me something in common with other people my age. We can't get Netflix however, so I had to buy them from Target costing me over $50 for just the first two seasons. I am almost six seasons behind. To my surprise I liked the Belle and Rumple episode, though Belles eye color is wrong. They call Captain Hook Captain Swan, he is abusive towards Emma Swan. The adults in the group knew the teens in the group got into an argument with the few adults in the group, including me. I just tried to get the teens to use Google by themselves. I just got tired of the changes to the Disney movies for Adults. Disney's Descendants is better. It asks "Nature or Nurture?" The worst part is not all Oncers are accepting of LGBTQ people Howard Ashmon was gay, he died of ADIS in 1991. I FEEL loss in Once Upon A Time. NO ONE else seemed to. I think Disney should cancel it. It is too dark and sad. The fans can be as young as five. I feel hurt, because Disney is supposed to protect these characters, and young minds. If you LOVE Disney STAY AWAY from Once Upon A Time.
