So chances are, you don't really remember Hunchback...
That's probably because it came on the heels of both the Disney Renaissance...
... And the Disney Not-So-Renaissance
So by 1996, when Hunchback was released, Disney was losing its touch, right?
First of all, let's take a look at the opening shot...
There's an expositional song and an accompanying puppet show:
In which we are introduced to this badass mofo:
Who commits murder within the minute he's introduced.
Then, literally twenty seconds later, he tries to go for murder number two:
But he gets stopped.
The Archdeacon tells him that he can't hide his sin from Jesus -- I mean, Notre Dame.
To atone, he has to raise the deformed child he tried to murder like two seconds ago.
Fast-forward twentyish years. Quasimodo is all grown up and super adorbs.
Also he's voiced brilliantly by this guy:
Quasimodo, By Himself, Decides to Sneak Out for the Festival of Fools
And meets Esmeralda
Who immediately captivates three dudes:
He isn't used to stuff like this:
And neither is he:
But he is, so she's into it.
But that's not the important part.
Let's take a look at some of these shots, shall we?
And oh yeah, there's this one part where...
Okay, that was weird and totally out of place in a Disney film. But now we're done with it, right?
Wait. You mean to tell me there's a whole musical number about Frollo wanting to bang Esmeralda?
And it's the most provocative sequence Disney ever did?
How could they have possibly gotten away with this?
Pretty crazy, huh? Now that you're old and mature and stuff, rewatch this hidden gem.
Just make sure you block this out for all eternity.
