Growing up is definitely the best time of our lives and no one can help it from being nostalgic every now and then. The world seemed to be a much better place, but that’s only because everyone was sheltered from the adult world. What’s interesting though is that kids movies and shows are not as harmless as you might think. Just try to watch one of your favorite childhood movies once again and you’ll be surprised to see how many terrific scenes that are completely inadequate for kids you will find. Not only that, but almost all movies that came out when we were growing have some deep secrets hidden about them. These following pictures and facts will show you just how many things you’ve missed while watching older movies.
Did you know that the Toad from Mario was not a mushroom? The character actually took its hat off in one episode.
Keeping in mind that this is a kids movie, don’t you think it is pretty inadequate that Aladdin goes to a brothel?
The Wizard of Oz is one of the greatest movies from our childhoods but there’s something really wrong about it. Cowardly the Lion’s costume was made from real lion fur.
Not only was this movie focused on liars, it also showed Pinocchio drinking even though he is presented as a little boy.
I bet that you can’t remember a single fighting scene from the original Power Rangers. The reason why I am so confident is that they never filmed one. It was all dialogue and prancing around.
I don’t know why but I expected them to be yellow. I guess reality doesn’t match the fantasy.
Do you remember that highly popular Barbie song by Aqua? Listen to the song again now that you’re a grown up and you’ll realize that it portrays Barbie in a bad light, something which Mattel Company didn’t like and sued Aqua for.
Judith Barsi, the voice actor behind Ducky from “Land Before Time” was dead when the movie came out.
One interesting fact about Sally Brown that you probably don’t know is that Fergie, the popular singer, is the one who voiced her in 1984 and 1985.
Kevin Peter Hall used to be the man behind all the monsters you saw in movies from the ’90s. He even played the alien in Predator. What you don’t know about Kevin Peter Hall is that he got in a car accident that got him sick.
Disney lied to us! Pocahontas didn’t get to see the colors of the wind because she was captured and sent to jail in England and she never made it out of there.
Another lie that everyone believes thanks to Disney is that mice love cheese. This isn’t true at all since mice don’t find it to be that irresistible.
If you didn’t know this by now, Cruella De Vil’s sole purpose was to make a fur coat out of the 101 Dalmatians.
Have you ever wondered why Crabbe didn’t appear in the last two Harry Potter movies? Well, Crabbe didn’t get along with the law and he was sentenced to 2 years in prison.
Watching this kids movie will never be same after you find out that this actress also plays in horror movies.
Even though animated movies and stories might lead you to believe that Humpty Dumpty was a beloved egg-shaped thing that couldn’t keep its balance, you should know that Humpty Dumpty was actually a cannon used by King Charles I in order to take over the town of Colchester during the English Civil War.
The Mad Hatter and March Hare were not as friendly as you might think because they were actually the ones who were trying to trap Alice in Wonderland.
Remember when the Heffalumps and Woozles got together and decided to give Winnie the Pooh a terrific nightmare? That episode probably scared many kids.
Pee Wee Herman was not such a nice and harmless guy as you probably believed.
Madam Medusa was so evil that she threatens to drown Penny if she didn’t bring her shiny diamonds.
These elephants appeared in Dumbo and from the looks of it, they actually where ghosts and not just pink elephants.
You might remember Keiko as the whale from the highly popular movie “Free Willy”. Keiko was released into the ocean after the movie was shot but sadly, Keiko didn’t make it on his own.
The writer behind Winnie the Pooh hated how popular the cartoon got. No one ever paid attention to his other projects and everyone asked for more Winnie the Pooh episodes.
The animated movie “The Skeleton Dance” is famous for how entertaining those skeletons were but what you probably didn’t realize is that they used their own bones as musical instruments.
Bobby from “An Extremely Goofy Movie” was one of the first animated characters ever who broke the fourth wall and this was pretty weird to see when growing up.
