    16 Reasons Galavant Is The BEST Show You Never Watched

    If the world gives you a "live-action Disney fairy-tale musical for adults," watch it! Or, don't and let it die like the monster you are. Here are 16 reasons you need to binge all 18 episodes. NOW.

    1. Alan Menken and Glenn Slater do the music

    The power couple behind the music of TANGLED (which was better than Frozen, btw) have been churning out original and hilarious tunes for 2 underappreciated seasons of Galavant.

    Alan himself is a Disney God. Basically any amazing Disney song from the 90s... that was ALAN MENKEN composing. A Whole New World? Tale as Old as Time? Part of Your World? Yep.

    Throughout the 2 seasons of Galavant you can hear his signature bits. He quotes himself, he parodies his own work, and he creates magnificent new love ballads and woman on woman rap battles to boot.

    2. Creator Dan Fogelman wrote TANGLED, BOLT, and CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE

    3. The cast are cinnamon rolls and should NEVER be out of work

    Karen David and Mallory Jansen can get it.

    5. SO MANY TANGLED REFERENCES

    @AIMenken Would you please kindly answer this question: are the references to #Tangled in #Galavant intentional?

    I don't think the nose is quite right on that #Galavant poster @GalavantABC

    @AIMenken, @Dan_Fogelman, and I bonded while writing Tangled - so yes, its kind of embedded in the DNA of #Galavant! https://t.co/CSivG9aKxw

    6. This brilliant Summer Nights parody

    You can't go more than 10 mins without a 4th-wall break or figurative wink at the camera. These people KNOW they're in a musical.

    8. It has ZOMBIES, GIANTS, DRAGONS, DWARVES...

    Yet they find clever ways to make them unlike any giants, dwarves, zombies, or dragons you've seen before... (YES, that's Nick Frost in this West Side Story parody!!)
