Subliminal messages in disney movies

BURBANK, Calif. (AP) -- A Christian group that claims
'The Lion King' briefly shows the word 'sex' says there are also risque scenes in two other popular Disney feature cartoons.

The American Life League maintains there is the audible message "Good teen-agers, take off your clothes" in 'Aladdin' and, in 'The Little Mermaid,' a wedding officiate becomes visibly sexually aroused.

The anti-abortion group, based in Stafford, Va., wants the Walt Disney Co. to remove 'The Lion King' from video stores. It says it was alerted to the appearance of the word by a woman who said her 4-year-old son noticed it.

Disney spokesman Rick Rhoades said Friday that the league is imagining things in all three films and that the company is not
recalling video tapes of 'The Lion King.'



The group did not ask that Disney remove 'Aladdin' and 'The Little Mermaid' from video stores.

The segment in question in 'The Lion King' occurs about midway through the movie when Simba, the hero, plops down and a cloud of dust rises above him. As the dust begins to trail off, it forms the letters S-E-X, with each letter fading as the next becomes clear, the group says.

Rhoades said the scene simply shows "swirling dust in the night sky." "Seeing anything in 'The Lion King' other than a good wholesome family film is purely perception," he said.

The league also claims that, in a scene near the end of 'The Little Mermaid,' a man performing a wedding is shown in profile and gets an erection as the bride and groom approach.

In 'Aladdin,' the objectionable words are allegedly spoken in a whisper when Prince Ababwa calls on Princess Jasmine in the scene before the magic carpet ride.

Disney animators have snuck bawdy messages into earlier releases.

In 1994, eagle-eyed viewers of the laserdisc version of the Disney co-production 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit' got a glimpse of cartoon character Jessica Rabbit without underwear, and of graffiti offering Disney boss Michael Eisner's home phone number as that of a brothel run by Allyson Wonderland.
