16 Disney Characters Who Really Need To See A Psychiatrist

Now you realize that half these people were self-medicating, depressed misogynists with anger management issues. Sheesh!

Posted on

2. George Darling from Peter Pan: Anger management issues

Don't touch this guy's stuff, don't talk to him, don't even smile — he gets pissed at just about anything. Stay out the way. HE WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE A LIVING HELL.

3. King Triton from The Little Mermaid: Xenophobic and prone to violent outbursts.

Ariel's dad calls humans "barbarians" and "dangerous," but c'mon, maybe if you just had a beer with one of us, you'd see we're not all that bad. No reason to be so afraid of the unfamiliar. But what's worse is that he's an overbearing father who can't seem to keep all the feels under control. You kind of have to feel for the guy — he lost his wife, has about a billion daughters to parent, and has to run the sea. Recommendation: Take up martial arts and/or yoga.


Ariel, again: Body image issues

Again, this girl kind of has some body issues. She's clearly not happy in her own skin (or scales). She's sort of resorted to the fairy tale version of plastic surgery/body augmentation.


12. The Beast in Beauty and the Beast: Depression

Can you really blame him? When your life is being trapped in a hairy body, locked in a prison of your own making, and having talking objects as your only'd probably be super bummed too.

15. Tinkerbell in Peter Pan: Borderline Personality Disorder

"Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness marked by unstable moods, behavior, and relationships....Most people who have BPD suffer from: Problems with regulating emotions and thoughts, Impulsive and reckless behavior, Unstable relationships with other people." [NIMH]
