Is this a weird interpretation to have?
Like many people I grew up with Disney, and I also own Disney+. It’s no secret that they have produced some rather “iffy” content in the past, as the warnings provided on D+ can attest to. And they’re far from the only company that is guilty of this.
But something about that almost seems enduring, if that makes sense. I mean, think about it: this company and these characters have been around so long that they existed in a time things that are unthinkable now were perfectly acceptable. In a way, it kinda shows how much staying power something has, that even throughout time they can adapt and change to fit in with what is more acceptable.
I’m not sure if I’m making sense, and I mean no offense, of course it’s terrible that these things were ever accepted, but it also comes from weird form of nostalgia (and sadly some people are genuinely nostalgic for the absolute worst part of racism and the like, that go far beyond offensive cartoons).
I apologize if this somehow came off as disrespectful.
