Silly reader, Disney is not just for kids anymore

You'll have to excuse my play on the Trix Rabbit saying for the title of this post but I just to let it be known that the Disney Company and Studios has grown up - way up! Several years back (1985) the Disney Company had a little spin off from the regular Disney movies called "Touchstone". That company was responsible for adult comedies like the Golden Girls, Scrubs on TV and movies on the big screen such as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Dick Tracy, The Rocketeer, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Santa Clause, Remember the Titans, Sweet Home Alabama, Bringing Down the House, National Treasure, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Dark Water, Hidalgo and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

If the movie or TV show was rated PG-13 or higher then Disney would release the film under the Touchstone label.

Now here is something you might or might not know about the animation division of Disney Studios: the animators had a sense of off the wall humor. If you go to and do a search on "X-rated Disney" or "sex and Disney" you will come up with some very interesting stuff. For example the Preacher that marries the Little Mermaid and the Prince is having an erection during the ceremony. The cover on the VHS movie case for the Little Mermaid has a penis as one of the towers on the castle in the background - Disney has since then revised it.

Before you run out an either rent or buy some of those movies you might want to take a trip over to the Disney Movie Club website and get up to 3 movies for $1.99 each. Yes they have the adult fan fare there. After all the baby boomers are aging so Disney has to make money catering to them as well as the kids. All the movies at the Disney Movie Club have free shipping so you don't have to waste any gas to get the movies delivered to your door.
