Many examples of claims made by various individuals and groups about subliminal sexual and racist messages scattered throughout many Disney movies are examined in this paper. These include the "Lion King", "Aladdin" and "Snow White".

From the Paper:

"When the Disney animated movie The Little Mermaid was released on home video, viewers saw inappropriate "sexual messages". (www.snopes2.com). After this incident Disney released two more movies with subliminal messages, The Lion King and Aladdin. Disney has long been known as an icon for wholesome family viewing. Allegations of subliminal messages have tarnished this image. One homemaker said she, "felt as if I had entrusted my kids to pedophiles" (The Wall Street Journal), and threw these videos in the trash. America was founded on morals that parents thought Disney upheld. Parents now feel betrayed by Disney. The case at hand is not whether or not children are affected by these subliminal messages, but that Disney is not so "Snow White"!"
