Just because a movie is animated, it doesn't mean it's suitable for children. And apparently, just because a movie is marketed toward children, made by a studio associated with children and specifically designed with children in mind, it also might not mean it's for children.
With that in mind, let us once more explore the moments from kids' movies that left many a child traumatized.
9"Night on Bald Mountain" in Fantasia (or, The One With Satan)
As the third Walt Disney film ever, Fantasia came out only two years after Snow White and right after Pinocchio. People were expecting Fantasia to be just as kid-friendly as those two, and for the most part, it was: It included waltzing flowers, Mickey Mouse getting in a crazy mix-up and a hippopotamus dancing ballet with an alligator.
This caused a lot of misconceptions about how mating works in the animal kingdom.
Everything seemed relatively normal for a children's film until the introduction to the last segment, in which we're told, "Bald Mountain, according to tradition, is the gathering place of Satan and his followers... ". Wait, what's that? Satan? Surely they don't mean that Satan. "Here ... the creatures of evil gather to worship their master."
That's right, Walt Disney's masterpiece transitioned from dancing animals to the devil summoning evil spirits and bringing hell to Earth -- and the only thing to prepare us was some guy saying, "We're going to start talking about Satan now, kids."
Donald, Mickey, Goofy ... Lucifer? Yeah, we can see that.
In this lone sequence, you've got eerily animated ghosts wisping out of haunted graveyards ...
Imps, demons and devils burning in the flames of hell ...
... and a Ghouls 'n Ghosts-worthy end boss.
They even slipped in a few nipples for good measure, because what the hell, most of the kids in the audience are probably covering their faces by now.
A wholesome way to find out about boobies.
The segment ends when daylight comes and all the demons and stuff crawl back into hell, the implication being that this happens every night while you sleep -- or try to, if you're a kid and you've just seen this cartoon. Walt Disney himself once admitted that Fantasia was a bad idea, though we think there might have been another reason for that.
