Lollipops and disney movies are my favourite things

Darn. I just gave away practically EVERYTHING in the title itself. Anyway, I've never really been very good with titles. I just write (type, actually) and then whatever pops into my head becomes the title. Or there isn't any title at all.

Anyway, today is children's day, November 14th. I might be old enough to be considered as out-of-category here, but heck, happy children's day to all the child-like people out there! I'm aware that my posts of late are very melancholy-ish and not exactly exuding joy, but in this post, be aware that I'm trying. I'm trying very hard.

So, let the festivities (don't cough, already) begin!

I've decided to dedicate this post to Walt Disney, without whom my childhood would've taken some innately boring turns. I'd also like to thank a hundred authors and some more movie-makers and TV-show writers but hey..all that's another post!:)

Continuing with my list fetish, Disney movies, that I believe, warrant some serious consideration for children of all ages (God help you if you don't come under this category.)

'The three Caballeros, three gay caballeros, they say we are birds of a feaatherrrrrrr!' A caballero is a spanish gentleman. See, how you can have fun AND learn at the same time?!

Don't tell me that this sight doesn't bring even a little bit of FEAR to your brain.
Mind-blowing animation, this.

They're fast, they're furious, they're...not to be missed!


"Ducktales! Woohoo!"
They're cute, they're searching for treasure, and that alone was enough.

Now, if only everyone really learnt that lying is bad for you as well as this little guy did.

Doesn't this make you go awww?? No? What's wrong with you?
The jungle book. A collector's item.

The aristocats is a clever movie for absolutely ANY mood.
Many people haven't watched it, so if you haven't, make sure you're exempted from the loser brigade.

Everyone's favourite british nanny in Mary Poppins.
Super-cali-fragi-listic-expi-ali-docious, even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious If you say long enough you'll always sound precocious Super-cali-fragi-listic-expi-ali-docious!

music grade- A

Pocahontas. Woman of the world.
Much like women of today!

Sleeping beauty was adorable, but what I really liked were these three fairies.
Disney people are geniuses.

Alice in wonderland. The mad tea party.
Lewis Carroll interpreted in true Disney style.

Don't we all still want a genie?
I can show you the world...romantic melody learnt early!Hah! Wannabes.

The beauty and the beast is one of disney's finest. Easily. You cannot help but feel like a million bucks after watching this. even inspired Vogue. See?

Only disney can make a movie about a mermaid, and make you seriously believe that they might exist (for a few years).

Another classic.

Voted as one of the biggest tear-jerkers of all time.
And bambi and thumper refined friendship.

'Bambi' is also a commonly used term, now. (if you watch TV)

Disney won An oscar and seven little oscars for this one.
Every single dwarf won hearts. This very scene, Cinderella and the glass slipper, is what inspired modern day flirting rituals, such as dropping a perfumed hanky, and the bend and snap!

Apparently, Disney started selling Wedding gowns that will fulfil your long-lived Disney-princess gown dreams. Here's the Cinderella wedding gown.
Talk about living your childhood dream!

The best was saved for last. This movie taught me everything.
The songs were absolutely mind-blowing, too.

All hail disney
Because I haven't even touched the tip of the BEST ice-berg, ever.

I can show you the world
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no
Or where to go
Or say we're only dreaming

A whole new world
A dazzling place I never knew
But when I'm way up here
It's crystal clear
That now I'm in a whole new world with you
Now I'm in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky

A whole new world
Don't you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your breath - it gets better
I'm like a shooting star
I've come so far
I can't go back to where I used to be

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment red-letter
I'll chase them anywhere
There's time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
That's where we'll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me
