Originally produced to target children, classic animated films are known for their bright, cheerful content and positive messages in life. However, sometimes filmmakers will go further than that. In a lot of cartoon blockbusters, there are still somewhere many details are “plugged in” with the purpose of making adults feel funny. Most of these details are related to sexual issues or topics that children are not yet fully able to understand.
To know your childhood has been “deceived” like this, immediately read the list below (but provided that you must be over 16 years old)!
Shrek and Donkey Trick think Farquaad has something … a little short?
Bringing the reputation of being a kid movie, the brand’s entire series Shrek (Vietnamese title: The Kind Goodman) all make adults laugh with “dark” details that are inserted gracefully and deliberately. Typical is the detail below, when Shrek and Donkey Trick arrived in the kingdom of the mad Lord Farquaad.
When the two stopped and admired the towering tower in Farquaad’s castle, Shrek told Donkey a smooth line: “Is this long to make up for his short one?”.
What “the other short” is the movie does not say. Children watching can simply understand that Farquaad’s height is too low compared to average, and that is what Shrek is referring to. However, if you watch this scene when you get older, there’s a high chance you’ll blush!
“Hakuna Matata” is not the meaning of the Lion King, no mistake!
One of the movie’s most memorable details The Lion King The cult is probably the living motto “Hakuna Matata”, or translated into Vietnamese as “No worries”.
After many sad details of the movie like the death of a father Mufasa or Simba who must flee, this message along with the hilarious music is what audiences need to have fun again, with a pig and a weasel. This song also contributes significantly to encouraging Simba to live happily and overcome the tragic death of relatives. However, because it is so easy to remember and playful, many people mistakenly think that “Hakuna Matata” is the message the film wants to convey. It’s loud!
The real message of the movie is that you cannot run away from the past, you must strongly confront and not tolerate bad guys.
Towards the end of the film, Simba realizes more and more the truth that he cannot deny all responsibilities, leaving other people free and happy to live forever. Instead, he must directly confront past difficulties in order to fulfill his duties and destiny. This is the real thing The Lion King want to send that many people accidentally ignore.
Story about Mrs.’s mouth. Potato Head in Toy Story
In a complicated development in the middle of the movie Toy Story 3 , the mouth of the character Mrs. Potato Head was snatched away by the evil bear Lotso because she was too talkative. At that moment, the husband Mr. Potato Head was angry and rushed in and shouted: “Only I have the right to use my wife’s mouth.”
Although this is a line that sounds nothing special, adults can quickly understand the deeper meanings related to hidden sex later (although not understanding the two potatoes will … ” how). Anyway, it is still very happy to know that this couple has a passionate, enchanting “long e” marriage.
Still Toy Story but this time Buzz Lightyear
In the movie Toy Story 2 , when the group gathered together and Buzz Lightyear watched Jessie act, he had an “unintentional response” to the body, which is the two wings behind “up”.
We all know that when a man is sexually interested, there is an unstoppable response in the body. It is not clear whether this is the intent of the manufacturer or not, but considering that Buzz Lightyear later fell in love with Jessie, this detail is also reasonable.
Inside Out also swirled on a heavy LGBT theme
Cartoon Inside Out (Vietnamese title: Emotional Puzzle PiecesPixar’s popularity makes audiences excited with Riley’s characters representing emotions: Sad, Cheerful, Angry, Frightened, Tasty. Despite living in a child’s mind, these characters occasionally have a very adult conversation.
At the beginning of the film, Riley’s family moved to San Francisco. She felt unfamiliar with this big urban area, so a loud surrounding noise also made Fright cringe: “What is that? Is it a bear? It’s a bear! ”. Chieu then reassured: “There are no bears in San Francisco”. But then, Anger immediately inserted: “I see a very hairy man, looks like a bear.”
In English, “bear” is called “bear”, and this is also a word for “hairy” gay men in the LGBT community, often used in sexual context. It’s not clear if this was the intent of the writers, but given the fact that San Francisco is a very gay city, this pun detail is perfectly plausible and straightforward. with adults only).
The Mushu dragon in Mulan curses at a certain brother “like a noodle.”
The character that left the most impression in the cartoon Mulan is the humorous, quick-talking Mushu dragon that helps the heroine escape many unnecessary accidents.
During a time when a young Moc Lan girl was criticized by a soldier from the same team for being “shy like a chicken”, Mushu was so angry that she took a risk, shouting at him, saying he was “a paralyzed bun.” This sentence seems to be just talking about poor body, but thinking a little deeper, the audience will see “even a dark sky”.
As soon as he said “I don’t want to see men naked” anymore …
The rats in the Cinderella house are also not the right type!
One last detail that haunts horror for many adults is when the rats are in the house Cinderella stringing a rosary with a tail. Children would laugh at this detail because they were creative, but when the adults saw it, they only wanted to faint because it looked so sensitive and went wrong!
