Peter Pan shocker!

This weekend I thought it would be fun to sit down with my son and watch a movie together.  He’s a big fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates, which is a Disney cartoon based on Peter Pan.  I remember watching Peter Pan when I was a little kid, so I thought it would be a great Father and Son bonding moment to watch the Disney classic together.  Little did I realize what I was about to expose my innocent little son to…

Now, I’m not a crazy wrap-my-kid-in-bubble-wrap-everything-has-to-be-organic parent by any means, but I have to say that Peter Pan way worse than I ever remembered it to be.

First of all, Tinkerbell a slutty, self-absorbed, psychopathic killer.  She’s first introduced to us by obsessing about her fat thighs after seeing them in a mirror. Then she proceeds to try and kill Wendy just because Peter Pan is giving her a little attention.  That’s right, she actually tries to MURDER another girl for stealing her man.  I always thought Tinkerbell was a sweet, innocent Disney character… but little girls could probably find a better role model in one of the Kardashians.

I also wasn’t quite prepared to sit next to my 2 1/2 year old and watch Captain Hook actually shoot and kill a man for playing his concertina too loud.  There’s loads of pirate violence; guns being shot, knives being thrown… oh, and Hook’s assistant, Mr. Smee, is a raging alcoholic that drinks way too much rum throughout the film.

Now you may be saying, “Boris, relax…  You’re just an over-protective parent. Kids are exposed to all sorts of adult themes throughout the day… this is Disney… it’ can’t really be that bad.”

Well, how about we throw in a little racism against Native Americans (called savages by Pan and pretty much everyone else throughout the film) to round things out:

So what do you guys think?  Am I overreacting?  Would you let your toddler watch Peter Pan?  Discuss below in the comments section.
