D Is for Donald.
D is for Donald Duck, the daring and darlingly delinquent Disney delight. For those who remember, Donald Duck is The Donald that really counts.
The Meme Express posed these questions (in bold). My answers are in italics.
Do you remember the first time you saw the Bambi movie? Where did you see it? How old were you? Did you cry? I’m not sure exactly when I first saw this movie, but I know I was quite young. We went to the neighborhood cinema, where a Saturday matinee, a soda and a roll of butter-rum LifeSavers totaled $1.
Which character did you find most memorable? Why? I always liked Thumper, the rabbit. I think I liked his high-energy. Maybe I just liked the idea that Thumper seemed to have rhythm.
What is your favorite animated movie of all time? This is a tough call. I loved Lady and the Tramp, Peter Pan, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Beauty and the Beast. I liked Cinderella too, although it has always bothered me to see stepmothers get such a bad rap.
What did you like most about it? I always enjoyed the earliest animated movies, because they were mostly based on printed books with actual story lines. As a writer, I think plot is important, even in an animated film. Maybe it’s even more important in an animated film!
What is your least favorite one? Why? The newer Disney movies are my least favorites, as the political and philosophical agendas have become bolder and more blatant. Whatever happened to pure entertainment?
