Disney has brought so much magic and wonder into our childhoods, and if you're anything like us, it has added a spark of joy to our adult lives as well. Most of us will never grow out of our Disney phase. Even when we're old and gray in some nursing home, we'll still be singing "I'll Make a Man Out of You" at the top of our lungs with the rest of the elderly patients, dance number included. We'll still sing "Let it Go" when we want to put an argument to rest with a loved one. We'll rewatch The Lion King over and over again until we have each line memorized.
Yet as incredible as Disney is, it comes with its own set of flaws. For one thing, its logic is often totally skewed. Let's take a look at some of the funniest Disney Logic Memes that will point out Disney's most hilarious flaws.
10 WHERE DOES TARZAN GET HIS ACCENT?
Tarzan has everything you could possibly want in a movie. It has vine-swinging action, classic romance, and a dynamite Phil Collins soundtrack to go along with the jungle adventure. (Don't act like you don't cry whenever "You'll Be In My Heart" starts playing on shuffle.) One of the strongest elements of the film comes from the love story that unfolds between Jane, a kind-hearted animal researcher, and Tarzan aka animated-Fabio in a loincloth.
Yet the one factor that doesn't make sense about their budding romance is how Jane clearly has an English accent and when she teaches Tarzan how to speak, he talks like an American. Perhaps the filmmakers should have considered this when they hired Minnie Driver to voice Jane and Tony Goldwyn for T-Zan.
9 JASMINE IS AN ODDBALL
Mike Tyson wasn't the only person to own a pet tiger. Although Jasmine may claim to have a "pet cat", her kitty is no average tabby that you'd expect to find in The Aristocats. Her pet tiger Raja is sweet and loving, but this is the world of Disney where everything is magical and animals can talk.
If this were real life and a young girl actually owned a pet tiger, there would certainly be no "happily ever after." Yet it does make sense that Jasmine would be skeptical to ride on a flying carpet with a random stranger.
8 SINCE WHEN ARE PIRATES SO DARN POLITE?
This meme hilariously captures Disney's fairytale logic when it comes to pirates. Funnily enough, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Pirates of the Caribbean are both a part of the Disney brand, yet one is clearly for mature audiences and the other is for young kids.
If Jack Sparrow came across this meme, his face would certainly look something like the picture above. The whole point of being a pirate is to commit crime and rob ships. Being a generous and polite citizen is never a top priority for a pirate and is certainly no pirates life for me. Can you imagine Captain Hook abiding by these rules?
7 SOOO... CAN ANIMALS TALK OR NAH?
It is often extremely difficult to understand Disney's logic when it comes to animals. Sometimes they talk to the point where it becomes excruciatingly annoying. Sometimes they don't talk at all. Sometimes the characters are exclusively animals. One of the most confusing elements in the Disney canon is the fact that Goofy, a dog, has a pet dog.
He walks his dog Pluto on a leash, and although Pluto can only bark like a normal pup, Goofy is your average middle-aged man with his awful dad-jokes and questionable wardrobe. We have a whole lot of love for both Goofy and Pluto though, so we'll just accept Disney's skewed logic in order to keep these lovable characters around.
6 THAT STRANGER OVER THERE IS MY SOULMATE
Aurora: "Who is this random man in the middle of these ominous woods that keeps grabbing me? Doesn't matter... He's a hunk! Must be trustworthy if he's got biceps like Zeus. I bet he does tricep digs regularly. And would you look at that smile?"
Do you know who else was good looking, Aurora? Ted Bundy. Some people trusted him too because of his smolder, and they tragically ended up with no fairytale happy endings. Point is, you should never blindly trust strangers regardless of how "hot" they are. Although Aurora and The Prince claim to know each other when they sing "I know you that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam," these two rascals don't really know each other. Best to do a quick background check with the random man in the woods before engaging in a duet with him.
5 WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN...
In reality, it is hard to believe that a 17-year-old girl would risk her own youthful life in order to save her elderly father who only has so many years left. Yet it is even harder to believe that her elderly father would accept Belle's imprisonment to a terrifying and violent beast in exchange for his own freedom. Sure, he may give some measly protests during the exchange, but that's about it.
Maurice may come across as a well-meaning dad but in reality, he makes Frank Gallagher seem like Father of the Year. If he was a better father and refused to allow Belle's imprisonment, Beauty and the Beast could've gone a lot more like the above picture. After all, the beast must find true love in order to break the spell.
4 ARIEL MIGHT NEED AN INTERVENTION ON HER OBSESSION WITH FORKS
Ariel might need to get her priorities straight over what she finds fascinating. Despite the fact that her dad has a magical trident which pretty much holds all of the power (and looks a bit like a giant and sparkly golden fork,) the little mermaid keeps her interest on the measly eating utensil.
Classic quirky Disney chick! Always holding obsessive fascinations on the most mundane objects. At least she's on brand... And don't act like you didn't use a fork as a comb when you were little in order to imitate Ariel (Or was that just us?).
3 NOT THE BEST SET OF MORALS FOR YOUNG GIRLS
Some of the lessons in The Little Mermaid are slightly skewed and problematic for young girls who make up for the majority of the film's target audience. Some may find it quite upsetting that Ariel pretty much risks her whole life in order to potentially win the affection of a major hottie.
Although Ariel has never met the dude before, his tan muscles and dazzling blue eyes are enough to get her to trade her voice and fins for him. Not cool, girl. Not cool!
2 HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL TOTALLY MAKES SENSE
Even as little kids, we were all utterly confused about Disney's logic when it came to this number. The number is called "I Don't Dance" and in it, Chad dances the whole time while claiming he "doesn't dance." What's worse is the fact that he's REALLY good at dancing, so clearly he's got the skill. He just doesn't dance because he's obviously too cool and masculine for that.
The whole purpose of his character since the first HSM movie is to scoff at anything associated with the arts because "that's for chicks, man." Yet it turns out, out of anyone in the film, he is probably the most talented when it comes to dancing and singing.
1 WHY DO ANIMALS NEED CLOTHING?
Donald Duck always wears the same cute little sailor suit yet he never bothers to wear pants. When he isn't wearing his usual getup though, he's embarrassed by the fact that he's "naked." Aren't all animals naked though? Unless we're talking about those pets that are always forced to wear clothing bought by their owner.
Yet the oddest factor of this picture is the fact that Donald is covering his "privates" despite the fact that he never wears pants, even to the fanciest events.
