Retro Walt Disney logo from Saving Mr. Banks (2013)
It’s international book day today and my son’s school did a thing where the kids were allowed to go in dressed as characters in books. In reality this turned out to be that in the reception class my son is in (4-5-year olds) most girls showed up dressed in Disney princess dresses and most boys in Marvel/DC superhero outfits. In the school yard I overheard one of the boys make a comment to a girl that she couldn’t be a princess since she had short hair. The bell rang that instant and all the kids ran off so I was just left there steaming with a piece on my mind I couldn’t get out there and then. So here’s short haired Disney Princesses.
Andy Warhol would be proud. LOL Don’t tell me to color inside the lines! I feel like this says a lot about who I am. Mickey-obsessed, colorful, and a little bit outside the norm (sometimes). Do you recognize this image? It’s from one of my favorite cartoons: 1941’s THE NIFTY NINETIES, a gem featuring cameo appearances from Goofy, Donald, Daisy, Huey, Dewey and Louie, plus caricatures of animators Freddy Moore and Ward Kimball as The Clever Boys from Illinois comedy duo.
