    2:24 Thas is not true, Oogie Boogie might not be in the original story but he's based on the main character of Ubu Roi by French author Alfred Jarry, even their names and designs is similar!

    My favorite Fun Fact most don't know about a Disney Villain?
    The Actress who played the Wicked Queen Grimhilde from Snow White (Lucille La Verne) did multiple takes to try to make her voice different from the Queen when she transformed into her Crone disguise but the recording directors felt -SOMETHING- was missing from the performance. While they discussed it Lucille left the room for a time and when she returned she asked to try the lines again, and THIS time they just "clicked". When they asked her what she did to find that missing quality she confessed that she just removed her false teeth.
    Sometimes the simplest solution was the best.

    No hard feelings, but I've seen several "Mojo" videos marking Madame Medusa as low on the totem pole. I understand she's not painted in the same intimidating light as the better-loved disney villians, but when you take a good look at her, I think she's an incredibly noteworthy villain. Especially considering how realistic she is - in that, someone like her could easily cause the very same damage she did in real life. No need for Undersea or Arabian magic, talking Shakespearean animals or anything like that. (I'm NOT dissing those other characters! I adore them!) But still. There's a realism and a kind of... idk, off-key uniqueness (?) to Medusa that I've really grown to respect over the years

      Thank you! I don´t know why people keep hating on Madame Medusa. I think she's far more frightening than say, Cruella; Cruella is a classic of course, and very enjoyable to watch, but she's really only going after the puppies, and she's pretty ineffective at that. Madame Medusa is a shady pawnshop owner who manages to abduct a little girl and use her for her own obsessive ends, endangering her presumably on a daily basis, and she even shoots at her with that shotgun during the climax; she also goes ballistic during the mice chase scene shooting in EVERY direction, regardless of who's in the way. She's a complete psycho; also, she psychologically abused Penny (and Mr. Snoops, but that was really his fault) all the time. Even her gators were more frightening and competent henchmen than Cruella's. I would rank her higher, really. And of course Milt Kahl's animation on her is legendary.

    Some dark fact about Disney.
    Our beloved "Lion King" is a rip off. Original movie was made in Japan and called "Kimba". Disney started making Lion King right after Kimba's creator died. Studio decided not to sue Disney only because they were to small and wouldn't be able to afford winning against such a gigantic company.

    Scar's original name was not Taka, the books are sadly not cannon to the lion King films. Disney just slapped their label on there because it was from their films, and also to make some money.

    Snow White was the first animated film I ever watched, I was maybe 3 years old, and my mom later told me that the thing I was afraid of was not the Evil Queen or the old witch, but the mirror! haha She said I got nightmares from it! lol Looking back, it does look more creepy than the main villain; the way it's face warps and all...

      Yes, but Anastasia isn't disney therefor mother gothel's death is still unique when it comes to Disney Villians.

  • Kendall Thompson
    Kendall Thompson Month ago

    I think people think that it's "mirror, mirror" because the story was written in German by the Bro Grimm and the saying is
    " Spieglein, Spieglein, an der Wand, wer ist die Schönste im ganzen Land?" Which it clearly states mirror twice.

  • Mercedes Hollingsworth

    To anyone still arguing about mother gothel death being unique to all other villains let me tell you something that might shock you.
    It doesn't matter how they "died" because kingdom hearts is Cannon and a very vast majority of the villians in that game are still very much alive.
    Sorry to disappoint but just had to share that interesting fact.
    The villians deaths we saw were all a lie. Now enjoy the rest of your day.

    • Ellie F

      Lucent Lulu they're equally unique. They both still fell from high up. Just one died by getting their neck snapped and the other died before hitting the ground by aging rapidly.

    • JD

      She does fall- she falls to the bottom of the sea. Even in real life, when a whale or another large marine creature dies and sinks, it is known as a "fall" (whalefall, etc).

  • Jareth The Goblin King

    Also in Greek Myth the Pegasus wasn't made by clouds, it was the child of Poseidon and Medusa technically, why couldn't they just show Poseidon with his good kid the Pegasus? Was that too hard?

    • JD
      JD 10 days ago

      Because it would raise uncomfortable questions such as how can Poseidon be a horse's father without, you know.... doing funny things with a horse? :B Also, in some stories, Pegasus was born from the blood of Medusa after being beheaded.

    Fun Fact: Professor Callaghan aka Yokai from Big Hero 6 is one of the very few Disney Villains who doesn't talk (barely) when doing his actions.
    Throughout the run of the film he never speaks. He lets the microbots take the spotlight (since they are controlled by thoughts). Once BH6 find out who he really is, he speaks beneath the mask which is the last 15 minutes of the film.

    Eleanor Audley is the perfect voice for great villains such as Maleficent and Lady Tremaine. It's such a shame that Disney didn't try to find a similar voice their future performances. Her voice is so natural and elegant and refined. Their voice actors are so bad now. Some even sound so fake.
    Same goes for Ursula. It's disgusting that Disney changed her character to practically nothing. She became a minor villain from the superbadass queen that she was. Disney should have tried to find somebody like Pat Carroll to voice her character. With all the new cool technologies her character shud hav bin cooler. But it's a total waste. Ursula shud hav stayed as a drag character. Thr biggie she was. With such a pushy freakingly creepy voice. With that giant imposing figure... I am so disappointed from Disney at keeping close to its roots. It's new characters r so cool but shame on them to modify those classic characters! 😓😯😭
