What were those clowns drinking?!

Last week when I went to Blockbuster to rent Network for our movie date, I took Belle with me and I let her pick out a couple of movies. One of the movies that she picked was Dumbo. It's funny how different a movie is to you from the perspective of an adult versus through a child's innocent eyes. I'm specifically referring to the part in the movie where Dumbo gets hiccups and takes a drink of something that he thinks is water, but just before he drank it the circus clowns had dropped a bottle of something into the barrel and Dumbo ended up hallucinating. So, I'm wondering, what the heck were those clowns drinking that would make Dumbo hallucinate like that!?! His hallucination was acid-trip-ish! Were the clowns hittin' the absinthe? In case you've forgotten what Dumbo's trip was like, here it is. :S

I had that "wtf" reaction when I watched it in high school when Teryn was a little kid. Its amazing to think that scene was approved by Disney.

I had totally forgotten about that scene! It's crazy how many adult references there are in cartoons that you don't notice until your a parent or older :) - Chelsi

We watched Snow White the other day and the queen tells the woodsman to bring back Snow White's heart in a box! I had to fast forward the part where the queen confronts him about it because I was afraid they actually showed the pig's heart he put in the box instead! Old Disney, not appropriate for kids!
