♫ Say goodbye my own true lover
As we sing a lover's song.
How it breaks my heart to leave you,
Now the carnival is gone.
High above the dawn is waking
And my tears are falling rain,
For the carnival is over.
We may never meet again.
Like a drum my heart was beating
And your kiss was sweet as wine,
But the joys of love are fleeting
For Pierrot and Columbine.
Now the harbour light is calling.
This will be our last goodbye.
Tho' the carnival is over
I will love you till I die ♫

(Song - 'The Carnival Is Over' - By The Seekers) here's a Youtube link to this song:…


A small compilation featuring some of the most forgotten Disney animal films of all time.

The selection of characters was based around the simple; yet thought provoking question: When was the last time you consciously and willingly decided to sit down and watch one of these films from start to finish?
If the film was featured on TV and you decided to watch it, it doesn't count, it only counts if you really wanted to watch the movie, so you rented, bought or watched it from your own film collection.
I know some of you will be able to say that you watched some of these recently, but i also know that most of you would honestly say 'not for a very long time', if ever for some of you.

As for me, i own Lilo & Stitch, Brother Bear, The Emperor's New Groove, Oliver & Company, and The Fox & the Hound all on DVD. So i do see these films often, but i can imagine that most people don't.

I should also mention that the characters here don't represent themselves, but more so the films in which they came from.

But if there is still some confusion, i will go through each character and explain my reason for their placement in this deviation:

1. Stitch (Lilo & Stitch 2002)
Now this one i know will cause the most confusion. Because i know that Stitch is EVERYWHERE! But that is solely due to the anime show that Japan created for him simply called 'Stitch!' ever since Disney sold Stitch to Japan; he has been manufactured like crazy. But like i said earlier, he represents the film; not himself. The film 'Lilo & Stitch' these days has more or less been forgotten. The animated series has been cancelled, the sequels flopped, and Lilo has been rejected and replaced by some other anime chick. So yeah, technically i should have placed Lilo here instead of Stitch, but i can't draw human characters to save my life!

2. Kuzco (The Emperor's New Groove 2000)
Pretty self explanatory if you think about it. I loved this movie, and i still do. But this was a film that i can imagine wasn't supposed to be taken too seriously, kind of a 'joke' film or a parody of a well known tale. So it wasn't surprising that it pretty quickly lost its popularity. A lot of people from my generation don't really remember this movie. Disney tried to reprise it with a sequel and an animated TV series, but i don't think they did too well. Sorry Kuzco!

3. Kenai (Brother Bear 2003)
I really liked this movie, but much like 'The Emperor's New Groove' its popularity was pretty short lived. Which is a shame, because i think it deserves to be up there with the classics. I know a lot of you would disagree with me on that note, as i've recently found out that not many people actually like this film. Oh well, i still do. And I don't really know what happened to this movie, but before i knew it 'Brother Bear's' fame was gone and soon it was virtually unheard of. It did have a sequel sucked. As most Disney sequels do.

4. Copper (The Fox & The Hound 1981)
One of the many examples of a Disney film burdened by it's age. It was a beloved classic then, however now it's a forgotten one. Most of the newer generations have never seen it and don't seem to care. It did have a mid-quel, but i don't even want to acknowledge it's horrible existence (yes it's that bad) honestly it was the worst Disney sequel i have ever seen! And it flopped anyway, so no one cares.

5. Dumbo (Dumbo 1941)
The oldest of the lot. Now i know that the character is still quite memorable, and some scenes are too, like the controversial 'Pink Elephants On Parade' scene, that people seem to think is a reference to an acid trip. but come on... when was the last time you actually watched it all the way through? Think about it. For me at least, it's been a very looooong time.

6. Bagheera (The Jungle Book 1967)
No doubt your parents' generation would remember this film pretty well. But not ours, once again, it's age is most likely to blame. To be honest, i don't think i've ever watched this all the way through till the end.

7. Dodger (Oliver & Company 1988)
Probably one of the most forgotten Disney films of all time. This film had no sequel, no TV series, no commercial celebration upon re-release, very little merchandise, and get this; when i listed all the Disney films i could think of one day at school, everyone who saw the list mentioned that they had never heard of this movie. And for once, i don't think it's age is the reason. But for the life of me, i don't know what is.

8. Duchess (The Aristocats 1970)
Just as they did with Stitch, Disney sold the rights to Marie to Japan, and ever since then; she too has been manufactured to no end. You'll find her on T-Shirts, stickers, plushies and other items at many Asian novelty shops. Way to sell out again Disney. However; Duchess here represents the movie, and quite frankly, nobody watches this film anymore. Pretty much the only thing this movie is 'famous' for now is Marie and the song 'Everybody Wants To Be A Cat.'


So people please, for their sake and yours, watch at least one of these classic Disney movies today, and make them live again! Because NOTHING hurts more than being forgotten. Your inner child is calling, answer it!


*Here are some films that i think deserves an honorable mention, ones that should be on here; but aren't due to either lack of room or character drawing difficulty:
101 Dalmatians, Great Mouse Detective, The Rescuers, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Black Cauldron, Atlantis, Treasure Planet, Pocahontas, The Sword In The Stone, Hercules, and Tarzan.*

All characters are (c) owned by Disney

Most newer generations don't seem to care at all, and most older generations forgotten everything and later die out without even caring, so there's no point in remembering or even missing. Everything happen this way not by time or nature but choice.
