"Discusses the commercial animated cartoon, a uniquely American genre, as the ideal camp medium. Cartoons produced by commercial Hollywood studios in the mid-20th century are a case study of gender construction in American society. The cartoons of three dominant studios, Disney, MGM, and Fleischer, are decidedly traditional in their presentations of gender roles; but Warner Brothers cartoons, particularly the work of director Chuck Jones, have a consistently camp mode that often attacks traditional gender constructions. If cartoons greatly affect attitudes and values of young minds, then Bugs Bunny "is one of the greatest threats to the traditional American way of life." [America: History and Life]

"Disney's adaptation of The Little Matchgirl, a short film premiering at the 2006 Annecy animation festival, is faithful to Danish author Hans Christian Andersen's emotional hues. The task of translating Andersen's somber, poetic prose went to veteran director Roger Allers, who stayed with the project as it went from a musical feature to a seven-minute short. Early in production, Allers decided the film should be done using 2-D pencil animation and have a handpainted appearance. Some of that inspiration came from Randy Haycock's character designs and Hans Bacher's thoughtful watercolors, which became the springboard for some elaborate computer coloring. Allers was asked to return from projects outside Disney to attempt several alternate, more upbeat endings, but ultimately the executives let him restore the original ending true to Andersen's intent."

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT Haworth Press Inc. 1991 "This essay deals with two important comics, Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse and George Herriman's Krazy Kat, and considers the social, cultural, psychological and symbolic significance of the main characters and their creators. In the discussion of Disney and his work (based, in part on writings about him) it is suggested that he exhibited traits associated with anal eroticism, which raises an interesting question about the popularity of his work with the American public. The two dominant themes found in Krazy Kat are described as "the triumph of illusion over reality" and "anti-authoritarianism." In a comparison of the two characters, it is shown they are polar opposites: Mickey Mouse is sadistic, asexual, and anal while Ignatz Mouse, the hero of Krazy Kat, is playful, sexual, and phallic."

" Explores the universality of Mickey Mouse and the metamorphoses this Disney creation underwent from 1928 through the 1950's. Mickey, an archetypal symbol recognizable to people everywhere, first appealed to the "child" in the adult, then became the good neighbor everyone knew in the desperate years of the Great Depression, and in the 1950's the "organization man" and king of the Disney empire. Although Mickey too will pass as the generation of the depression years passes, he will be reborn in some other characterization to a future generation." [America: History and Life]

This study is a quantitative content analysis of characters appearing in the 19 most successful and most recent Disney animated movies. The focus is on the variables of diversity (including gender, race/ethnicity, and age), assigned roles within the films, and social vulnerability, defined as any life situation or condition that makes one susceptible to being hurt or disadvantaged in some manner, either physically, emotionally, or economically. Results are mixed. There are several positive outcomes for which the Disney Corporation should be applauded, but there are also a number of serious lapses.

"The Walt Disney Company's ideological program shifted from conservatism in the 1930's-70's to liberal multiculturalism in the 1990's. Disney's liberal multicultural agenda included ventures into the US Spanish-speaking market, the inclusion of racially diverse characters in some productions, the use of celebrity voices like that of comedienne Whoopi Goldberg in animation films, the creation of films about nonwhites such as Mulan, the character Ellen's revelation of her homosexuality on the American Broadcasting Company's (bought by Disney) television show titled Ellen, the inclusion of domestic partners in its health insurance plan, the Gay Day promotion at Disney World, and the distribution of toy giveaways at Christmastime to inner-city advocacy groups. Yet embedded in Disney's multicultural agenda is the message that diversity may exist "only if it is subordinated to dominant ideals," that is, those who are different should assimilate or acculturate. Disney's message of conformity is readily apparent in the animated film The Lion King." [America: History and Life]

"Construction of the female self: feminist readings of the Disney heroine." Women's Studies in Communication v19, n2 (Summer, 1996):229 (21 pages).
"Walt Disney's films such as 'Cinderella,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Pocahontas,' portray the evolution of the female characters. Belle, Ariel and Pocahontas are more assertive of their rights than Cinderella and heroines of the previous films. The earlier films portray women as weak and helpless. Gradually the Disney heroine finds her voice and strength. However, the female voice makes little impression on the hegemonically patriarchal status quo. The lessons viewers garner from Disney films are ambiguous and depict the troubled arena of postfeminism." [Expanded Academic Index]

Walt Disney Co.'s films, media products and merchandise have influenced filmmaking and culture. The company, which pioneered animation technologies, is considered a media giant with interests in film, cable TV, video recordings, cyberspace and theme parks. Disney, however, is often criticized for the similarity of the characters and themes in its films and for its merchandising strategies.

"The Disney amusement parks provide a good location in which people can establish and identify with social norms. Disney is a powerful advocate of the social definition its ownersbelieve to be ideal, and this has unconsciously affected millions of people whohave visited the place. Undoubtedly, Disney produces a feeling of pleasure and well-being. The heterosexual, nationalistic and capitalist ideals it unconsciously ingrains in visitors become connected to this pleasurable feeling. However, the feelings are all negative pleasures since they entail intricacies of hope and denial." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Images of Animated Others: The Orientalization of Disney's Cartoon Heroines From The Little Mermaid to The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Popular Communication 2004, Vol. 2, No. 4, Pages 213-229
"Because of the success of the first six animated feature films produced in the "new era" of Disney animation (The Little Mermaid, 1989; Beauty and the Beast, 1991; Aladdin, 1993; The Lion King, 1994; Pocahontas, 1995; The Hunchback of Notre Dame, 1996) and their mass merchandising, Disney animated characters became ubiquitous for children of the 1990s. Although Bell, Haas, and Sells (1995) suggested that Disney films present a "sanitization of violence, sexuality, and political struggle concomitant with an erasure or repression of difference" (p. 7), an increasing emphasis on sexuality and the exotic is evident in the construction of the female heroines in these films, particularly in the female characters of color. This article analyzes what may be referred to in Said's (1978) terminology as the orientalization of women of color in five of these six Disney animated films and posits how these representations of gender and cultural difference operate within Disney's consumerist framework, which provides "dreams and products through forms of popular culture in which kids are willing to materially and emotionally invest" (Giroux, 1999, p. 89). Using a critical lens, I interrogate the unity of images regarding gender and race that these Disney texts offer and the ways in which these meanings operate within the larger socio-historical framework regarding women of color and the notion of Whiteness."

"The broadcast of Disney's 1957 animated film, Our Friend the Atom, a Tomorrowland segment for the Disneyland television show, was a significant moment in the rhetorical history of the "naturalization" of atomic energy, i.e., making atomic energy part of everyday life and presenting it as natural rather than artificial. Disney's interpretation of the peaceful atom, both in the television text and in the theme park narratives, had much in common with other mid-century texts, from world's fairs to popular science books, but the particular contribution of Disney was the metaphor and visual icon of the genie who grants three wishes. The genie metaphor offered an optimistic twist on a traditionally ironic story, helping naturalize the peaceful atom." [America: History and Life]

"Walt Disney promoted 'Americaness' and influenced Americans' image of themselves through his western films and TV programs. The programs proved the value of children as an economic force and prompted other TV networks to launch their own western shows. Disney altered public attitudes to legendary soldiers such as George Armstrong Custer and promoted heroes like Davy Crockett and other sympathetic characters that reflected his own values."

It is a remarkable event that highlights Disney's debt to European literature, art, music, and cinema while reminding viewers that American popular culture owes its origins and richness to many cultures internationally, and its influence internationally owes so much to Disney.

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 2003 Brunner-Mazel Inc. "Media have the potential to serve as sources of information regarding couples and families for many children. One of the more popular forms of children's media is the Disney animated feature-length movie. To date, no research has examined images of couples and families in a wide sampling of Disney feature-length animated films. This study was designed to identify themes about couples and families portrayed in 26 Disney animated classics and recently released movies. In general, four overarching themes were identified: (a) family relationships are a strong priority, (b) families are diverse, but the diversity is often simplified, (c) fathers are elevated, while mothers are marginalized, and (d) couple relationships are created by "love at first sight," are easily maintained, and are often characterized by gender-based power differentials. Clinical implications for family professionals are addressed." [Expanded Academic Index]

"In the wake of a highly successful and publicized series of articles on space travel in Collier's magazine, Walt Disney commissioned a group of episodes on the subject for his new television show Disneyland. These episodes, grouped under the show's Tomorrowland theme, employed many of the experts involved in the Collier's series, combined the Disney studio's strength in animation with live action, and set about making the facts of space science entertaining for a family audience. The shows, however, also demonstrated shifting attitudes toward science and technology at Disney, as the early efforts at emphasizing the educational aspects of the episodes eventually gave way to overblown dramatizations and even trivializations of the cultural concern with space exploration. An early and demonstrably serious concern with issues of "tomorrow" was gradually transformed into little more than an entertaining "fantasy."" [Expanded Academic Index]

" Draws on studies of the Walt Disney Company that have used a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to challenge some of the myths that surround the company, its products, and its creator, Walt Disney. The discussion considers five assumptions that are typically made about Disney: 1) Walt Disney was a creative genius who was responsible for the company's success; 2) the Disney company is somehow special and unique, not like other corporations; 3) Disney is only for children; 4) Disney's products are harmless, safe, and unbiased; and 5) everyone adores Disney. The challenges to these myths are drawn from a wide range of studies from different disciplines but rely heavily on the integration of political economy, critical cultural analysis, and reception research."

"Walt Disney remains one of the most influential individuals of the 20th century. His entertainment empire has thoroughly penetrated American popular culture and the characters he has helped to create are recognized worldwide. However, three barriers exist that prevent a comprehensive analysis of Disney's role and influence in modern American culture. First, the significance of his contributions has been eroded by his popularity. Second, the volume of entertainment produced by the Disney Studios "resists interpretive synthesis." And third, reaction to Disney's empire encompasses either a strong affection for his mission to bring uplifting fantasy to the lives of people or is the focus of people who view him as a huckster and the popularity of his work as the result of shrewd manipulation. This emotional debate tends to undermine attempts at understanding Disney historically, but by placing him within the context of the cultural trends of modernism and popularism during the 1930's, a truly historical portrait of the man emerges."

"The "Carousel of Progress" play, first shown at the 1964 New York World's Fair and now a Walt Disney attraction, demonstrates the changes in social perceptions of gender roles when the different scripts are analyzed. The play is designed to show how industrial progress has improved the lives of women by providing time-saving devices. Portrays of women have changed from innovative in 1967, to wanting equal pay in the 1970s and 1980s to inept in the 1990s with nothing to do with her new spare time." [Expanded Academic Index]

Findings indicated that the relationships in The Little Mermaid and Aladdin correspond to father-adolescent daughter relationships in which the father denies his daughter freedom to explore her adolescence, while the relationships in Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas are more consistent with father-adolescent daughter relationships in which the father allows the daughter freedom to negotiate her adolescence.

"Hunters believe that Walt Disney Co.'s 1942 film 'Bambi' presents a false image of American hunters. The hunting sequence, however, was only a small part of the film whose main theme is love. The film, which was set on a predator-free forest, features violations of hunting laws and ethics that hunters believe enhanced anti-hunting sentiments. Anti-hunting attitudes cannot be attributed to 'Bambi' since the sentiment became widespread even before the film." [Expanded Academic Index]

Introduction to a special issue on Walt Disney. 1996 marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Walt Disney, but the Disney name and the vision conceived by the company continues to permeate American culture. The articles in this issue attempt to make sense of the Disney message and its influences. Among the subjects addressed are Disney's documentaries and westerns and the allegations that Bambi contributed to an antihunting sentiment in the United States.

"Walt Disney's 1942 animated film Bambi, based on Felix Salten's 1928 novel, has been influential in determining American attitudes toward wildlife and hunting. The film's strength came from its superb animation, which gave animals distinctly human features, and the company's aggressive marketing. The animal characters thrive in an idyllic setting where the laws of nature do not apply and where man, the hunter, is clearly the villain. This antihunting theme is strong and has influenced a generation of American children with images of animals as warm and cuddly. Furthermore, the attitudes of many people toward wilderness and wildlife have been shaped by this film. This is unfortunate because the film does not educate audiences about the natural world but represents a flight into fantasy." [America: History and Life]

"Walt Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' expresses two conflicting gendered voices which enact the masculine and feminine conceptions of power. As a result, a female spectatorship position emerges which in turn gives rise to an alternative conception of paradoxically autonomous power. The dialectical perspective of power resolves the gender conflict and makes the ending polysemous. Out of the diverse interpretations, one promises to be empowering for the female viewers."

Walt Disney's films such as 'Cinderella,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Pocahontas,' portray the evolution of the female characters. Belle, Ariel and Pocahontas are more assertive of their rights than Cinderella and heroines of the previous films. The earlier films portray women as weak and helpless. Gradually the Disney heroine finds her voice and strength. However, the female voice makes little impression on the hegemonically patriarchal status quo. The lessons viewers garner from Disney films are ambiguous and depict the troubled arena of postfeminism.

"Gothic drama in Disney's Beauty and the Beast: subverting traditional romance by transcending the animal-human paradox." Critical Studies in Mass Communication Sept 1999 v16 i3 p350(2)
Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1999 Speech Communication Association "In 1991, Walt Disney Studios released the animated feature film Beauty and the Beast to wide acclaim. In 1994, they set out to leverage their success into a new market: Broadway. By making overtures to domestic and international audiences with a musical version of Beauty and the Beast, they redefined legitimate theatre into a mass-market venue. In an attempt to understand what Disney has accomplished with this classic fairy tale, I will look at the animated and stage versions as examples of Gothic romance and argue that their success, like that of Gothic novels, is based on an openness to reappropriation by women. By taking advantage of the core paradox of Gothics, namely the paradox of our Animal and Human natures, this Disney tale can be read as an indictment of traditional gender roles and a validation of unconventional roles. It offers to viewers a model for intimacy which presumes that both partners must seek wholeness of Self before either can find wholeness in relationship." [Expanded Academic Index]

"A textual and contextual analysis of Walt Disney films 'Cinderella' and 'The Little Mermaid' subverts the myth of wholesome Disney films and reveals the oppression of females by conforming to patriarchal values. As representations of traditional gender roles, both films take into account the economic, corporate and social contexts surrounding them. Disney films differed from the classic cinematic versions of the fairy tales by adapting to the societal realities. The positive response to the films proves that the patriarchal ideological power of the Disney myth still holds good in society." [Expanded Academic Index]

"A central theme of the fairy tale 'Cinderella' is the use of marriage to fulfill class ambitions. Cinderella's love for her mother, though neglected by critics, suggests that the conflict with the stepmother and stepsisters over who will marry the prince is really a social matter. Cinderella, as a genteel-bourgeois, is entitled to become a princess while her petit-bourgeois stepsisters are upstarts. Later versions, including Disney's 1949 film adaptation, reinforced the depiction of marriage as a means for women to realize their social aspirations." [Expanded Academic Index]

"A modern sex joke based on the Cinderella story told of how the fairy godmother turned a pumpkin into a tampon so that Cinderella could go to the ball despite having her period. The punchline, in which Cinderella finds out that the Prince is Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, is funny because it implies oral sex. This joke deconstructs the 1949 Disney animated version of the Cinderella story and reveals a sexual discourse dealing with women's biological, sexual and social realities. In this way the joke ridicules the dominant bourgeois culture's assumptions about women." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The intense and opposing responses to Disney's 'The Lion King' can be attributed to the film's usage of a combination of Christian and New Age mythologies which advocate morality. It starts with the prelapsarian myth, develops into the Fall and expulsion, the resulting moral corruption, the fight between good and evil, the triumph and the cyclic renewal. Some of the lessons presented by the film reinforce patriarchal values, such as gender roles in family raising, while others may be perceived as noncontroversial and prosocial." (Magazine Index)

"Construction of the female self: feminist readings of the Disney heroine." Women's Studies in Communication v19, n2 (Summer, 1996):229 (21 pages).
Walt Disney's films such as 'Cinderella,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Pocahontas,' portray the evolution of the female characters. Belle, Ariel and Pocahontas are more assertive of their rights than Cinderella and heroines of the previous films. The earlier films portray women as weak and helpless. Gradually the Disney heroine finds her voice and strength. However, the female voice makes little impression on the hegemonically patriarchal status quo. The lessons viewers garner from Disney films are ambiguous and depict the troubled arena of postfeminism.

"Images of Animated Others: The Orientalization of Disney's Cartoon Heroines From The Little Mermaid to The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Popular Communication 2004, Vol. 2, No. 4, Pages 213-229
"Because of the success of the first six animated feature films produced in the "new era" of Disney animation (The Little Mermaid, 1989; Beauty and the Beast, 1991; Aladdin, 1993; The Lion King, 1994; Pocahontas, 1995; The Hunchback of Notre Dame, 1996) and their mass merchandising, Disney animated characters became ubiquitous for children of the 1990s. Although Bell, Haas, and Sells (1995) suggested that Disney films present a "sanitization of violence, sexuality, and political struggle concomitant with an erasure or repression of difference" (p. 7), an increasing emphasis on sexuality and the exotic is evident in the construction of the female heroines in these films, particularly in the female characters of color. This article analyzes what may be referred to in Said's (1978) terminology as the orientalization of women of color in five of these six Disney animated films and posits how these representations of gender and cultural difference operate within Disney's consumerist framework, which provides "dreams and products through forms of popular culture in which kids are willing to materially and emotionally invest" (Giroux, 1999, p. 89). Using a critical lens, I interrogate the unity of images regarding gender and race that these Disney texts offer and the ways in which these meanings operate within the larger socio-historical framework regarding women of color and the notion of Whiteness."

"The happiest films on earth: a textual and contextual analysis of Walt Disney's 'Cinderella' and 'The Little Mermaid.'" Women's Studies in Communication v19, n2 (Summer, 1996):155 (29 pages).
"A textual and contextual analysis of Walt Disney films 'Cinderella' and 'The Little Mermaid' subverts the myth of wholesome Disney films and reveals the oppression of females by conforming to patriarchal values. As representations of traditional gender roles, both films take into account the economic, corporate and social contexts surrounding them. Disney films differed from the classic cinematic versions of the fairy tales by adapting to the societal realities. The positive response to the films proves that the patriarchal ideological power of the Disney myth still holds good in society." [Expanded Academic Index]

"This study assesses the extent to which portrayals of father-adolescent daughter relationships in four Disney feature films (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and Pocahontas) correspond with the qualities of successful and unsuccessful father-adolescent daughter relationships as revealed in the research literature. Findings indicated that the relationships in The Little Mermaid and Aladdin correspond to father-adolescent daughter relationships in which the father denies his daughter freedom to explore her adolescence, while the relationships in Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas are more consistent with father-adolescent daughter relationships in which the father allows the daughter freedom to negotiate her adolescence. Implications of these findings are discussed." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Walt Disney Co.'s 'Mulan' is the first animated production to use historical characters well-known to Chinese, yet its makers are ignorant of Chinese history and character. Although the film is visually interesting and occasionally clever, the characters do not have normal appearances or exhibit appropriate Chinese behavior." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Thoughts elicited by an illustration." (Hollywood Films and Chinese Domestic Films in China, Part 2) Chinese Sociology & Anthropology Winter 1999 v32 i2 p26(2)
Walt Disney Co.'s motion picture 'Mulan' fails to create the sense of Chinese culture and tradition earlier illustrations of this story do. The animated main character has Western sensibilities and, although attractive and behaving admirably, does not evoke identification in most Chinese moviegoers. [Expanded Academic Index]

Peter Pan

Bell, Elizabeth
"Do you believe in fairies?: 'Peter Pan,' Walt Disney and me." Women's Studies in Communication Summer 1996 v19 n2 p103(24)
A professor of communication narrates how her name being similar to a fairy in Walt Disney's 'Peter Pan,' reflected upon her childhood and marital life. 'Peter Pan' is a story of perpetual childhood and in the Disney tradition involves the willing suspension of disbelief. Disney texts make Peter Pan sexless, and the urban legends working within, return the adolescent expression of desire to the movie. The animators made the fairy Tinker Bell a buxom girl for male viewing pleasure, and later erased the undergarments off Jessica in 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit,' rendering the films misogynistic."

Carlo Collodi's 'The Adventures of Pinocchio: Tale of a Puppet,' Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and Mark Twain's 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' all conclude with the loss of childhood. The three main characters make their way through worlds full of terrors created by the authors without being harmed and yet, in the end, all of them lose that freedom of unselfconsciousness. However, the characters do not regret this loss but rather it is the reader who misses the ability of the earlier Huck Finn, the puppet Pinocchio and Alice while still in Wonderland.

"Walt Disney's 'Pocahontas' retells history in the form of a neocolonialist discourse and legitimates colonialism, racism, anti-miscegenation, patriarchy and capitalism. The film answers the query about why the white colonial savagery was committed, by seeking to justify colonialism. The colonialists are portrayed as benevolent and Pocahontas is shown as a captured soul in a land of savages, who need to be civilized. Both Pocahontas and America are virgins and an essentialist connection between nature and women is that they both need colonization." [Expanded Academic Index]

Walt Disney's films such as 'Cinderella,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Pocahontas,' portray the evolution of the female characters. Belle, Ariel and Pocahontas are more assertive of their rights than Cinderella and heroines of the previous films. The earlier films portray women as weak and helpless. Gradually the Disney heroine finds her voice and strength. However, the female voice makes little impression on the hegemonically patriarchal status quo. The lessons viewers garner from Disney films are ambiguous and depict the troubled arena of postfeminism.

"This essay examines the commodification of Pocahontas surrounding the 1995 Disney film Pocahontas. Through an examination of Pocahontas products and popular cultural discourses about Pocahontas, the essay develops a theory of the "cipher" as a late-capitalist commodity form. Theorization of the cipher helps explain how companies market afield of goods in relationship to a single product, such as a film. Marketing campaigns draw on generic forms and figures that can be easily reproduced and identified. Furthermore, through the marketing of Pocahontas goods and popular discourses, Disney and the general mainstream commodity culture construct a market for children versus parents. And while the commodity world of Pocahontas uses utopic appeals to sell products, through their appropriation of feminism and Native American culture and history, Pocahontas products and discourses contribute to the material oppression of women and Native Americans, generally, and Native American women in particular."

In contrast to men, women are portrayed as weak, pristine and incapable of taking independent decisions. They are physically less aggressive and more prosocial than males. Physical aggression comprises 47 percent of the male action in the Disney movies. Males account for 57 percent of the Disney characters in comparison to 21 percent females, which confirms the predominance of males. However, Ariel, Belle and Nala are some of Disney's independent females characters." [Expanded Academic Index]

"This essay explores the uses of the close-up shot in wildlife films and television shows, raising important questions about the scientific truth value of visual narratives that use this camera technique common in fictional films and television. The close-up shot creates a false intimacy between the human audience and the animal subjects, and among the dangerous results of the technique is the impression that animals have human-like thoughts and emotional responses. While this identification of humans with animals might provide the basis for successful political, economic and social action on behalf of animal welfare, use of the technique raises several important ethical questions regarding the representation of nature and science."

"Between Jules Verne and Walt Disney, Brains, Brawn, and Masculine Desire In '20000 Leagues Under The Sea'"Science-Fiction Studies 22: 209-225 Part 2 Jul 1995
UC users only
Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT SF-TH Inc. 1995 "Periodic interest in Jules Verne's novels has often been sparked by film adaptations. One of the most famous of these is the 1954 Disney film of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This film may be read as a symbolic text exploring myths of masculinity, science, technology, and power. Reading the film against the original novel reveals a pattern of changes and shifts in the four main characters and their relationships. Produced under the shadow of the Cold War and the launching of the first nuclear submarine - named the Nautilus after Captain Nemo's famous boat - the Disney film of Leagues shows viewers a Nemo grown far less heroic. The enigmatic captain emerges as a desperate fugitive dogged by military and imperialist powers, rather than the infallible champion of science as a means to freedom from the surface world of European empires and warfare. Disney's film elevates the American, Ned Land, a working-class sailor and harpooner, to the level of hero, suggesting that brawn and not brains is the true source of male power. Analysis of the symbolic undercurrents of the texts reveals a struggle for the symbolic phallus of the fathers and the Promethean fire of intellectual and technological superiority. Between Verne and Disney, an ideology of individualism and anti-intellectualism struggles with the Vernian romance of technological man. An image of men as cooperating brothers sharing a love for Nature clashes with the image of men as inevitably subordinated to institutional brotherhoods founded on violence, competition, conquest, and the repression of the individual."
