I am not kidding when I say that while writing this post I was listening to a playlist of my favorite Disney songs! I figured it was only right to do that! 🙂
I’ve been thinking about my favorite scenes in all of the Disney films out there! We are more into singing the songs than acting out our favorite scenes, for obvious reasons! Some of us do NOT want to embarrass ourselves whether out in public or with family around in case somebody’s got their phone and using Snapchat. As I’ve been told, once somebody busts you, it’s a bit hard to escape it afterwards, but it is perfectly fine to say the scenes while laying in bed eating popcorn, just don’t get choked!
I wanted to write out my all-time favorite scenes that I tend to say aloud without even thinking now! Unfortunately, I have screwed myself a few times in the past! So if you’re ever around me and a Disney movie is on the TV, there’s a 50/50 chance I’ll just go ahead and quote it!
1.) Zazu Singing To Scar – The Lion King (1994)
I have trouble with watching The Lion King all the way through. I have always had issues with it and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one! I mean, between this one and Tarzan I think they’re the saddest kid-friendly movies ever!
Despite rarely watching the film, I think the funny relationship between Scar and Zazu is the best! When the scene of Scar is basically eating his last meal of both Pride Rock and in general, he has poor Zazu locked away inside a decomposing ribcage of a small animal and he is just singing somberly and Scar wants him to be more cheery and then Zazu just breaks into “It’s A Small World After All” and Scar is like, “hell no!” and then they finish the last scene of the two of them with this little tune mentioned in the gif above!
2.) The White Rabbit Saying “I’m Late” – Alice In Wonderland (1951)
I am obsessed with Alice In Wonderland well, the old Disney film at least! I still haven’t seen the second of the live-remake yet! My only problem now is that I use this film to help me fall asleep at night!
I think everybody would agree that the white rabbit basically singing “I’m late” throughout the whole movie is a little annoying, because then you have the little jiggle stuck in your head either later that day or in my case because I’ll turn it on late at night, it’ll creep its way into my brain in the middle of the day and I’m pulling an Alice and humming while doing things at my nana’s house!
3.) Buzz Lightyear Meeting Woody and The Other Toys – Toy Story (1995)
Toy Story has become a new love of mine! I don’t necessarily remember being into it when I was younger, but one day in November last year, I saw it on Nick Jr–don’t knock it, that’s where I’ve found majority of my favorites again–and I’ve been addicted to it. However, I usually lose interest in it around the time Woody just knocks Buzz out of the window.
My favorite scenes starts when Woody takes his younger sister Molly downstairs and the toys suddenly awaken and start roaming around the room like normally. The first scene is of Potato Head trying to gather his facial features back into his head after Molly basically puts it into her mouth and bangs it against her crib and says “Ages 3 and up, it’s on my box! Ages 3. And. Up. I’m not supposed to be babysitting Princess Drool” it is my favorite thing to quote right out of the gate!
And then I like when Rex pulls Woody’s doodle pad over by the bottom of the crib and starts roars, Woody is not bothered and poor Rex is like, “Were you scared, tell me honestly?” and Woody being a good sport says that he was close to being scared and Rex concludes with “Oh, I’m looking for fearsome here but I just don’t feel it, I just feel I’m coming off as annoying!” I feel ya buddy!
My last quotable scene of the film is when Buzz Lightyear meets Woody and the other toys and Woody is obviously jealous of another toy on his spot on the bed and Buzz thinking he’s the Buzz Lightyear and Woody tries to tell him he’s just a toy (T-O-Y, toy as he says) and then while the toys are asking him about his gadgets and they continue to bicker Woody just says this and I liked the comeback from Potato Head “getting kind of tense, huh?” The beginning of the film has the best quotes I think!
4.) Pain and Panic – Hercules (1997)
Now like AIW Hercules is another film that I can fall asleep too and it’s one that can instantly put me to sleep too, so I hardly ever watch it for pleasure anymore because I know what’ll happen!
I believe the “scene stealers” in this film are Pain, Panic and Hermes. Everybody likes to quote both Hades and Phil the most, at least I see more memes from Hades than any other character from the movie. However, I think Pain and Panic, his little henchmen forgetting to mention that the Fates were there waiting for him and he goes into a rage and the small flame on top of his head kind of grows around his upper body and Pain and Panic basically melt into the ground and change into fat worms to show that they feel guilty about it is pretty freaking hilarious!
5.) Tantor Refusing To Get Into The Water – Tarzan (1999)
Tarzan is another movie that I have trouble with completing, and it must have something to do with animals and death. In The Lion King only two animals die in the film, one is a beloved character by all whereas Scar is the evil brother who killed Mufasa. In this one, four animals and a pair of humans die! I mean, I think it should have had a PG-13 rating because of the amount of deaths in it!
Anyways, I believe when Tarzan and his buddies were little were probably the more hilarious scenes. They’re just having fun and learning about their surroundings, especially Tarzan! The scene where Tantor does not want to follow his mother into the swamp or whatever and he asks the question above in that high-pitched voice! I mean, we all have probably recreated this scene once or twice in our lifetimes!
If I ever figure out any more quotable moments in other Disney (which will probably happen) I will share them along in a second post! Just as a warning, I have created a fairly large list of blog post ideas and majority of them are movie related, so this will definitely not be the only film post going up this spring!
