Prepare yourselves, because you are about to see something you can never un-see and it has freaked us out quite a lot understatement. Artist David Kawena has drawn a series of stunning pictures, giving Disney princes a more realistic look and then stripping them down to their pants in a way that wouldn't look out of place on Cosmo's centrefold pages. But while some of these leading men are handsome in cartoon world, seeing them like this is wrong on so many levels we just can't even begin to describe the way our skin is crawling right now.

A very atypical animated movie from Disney. Hugely self-aware and a lot more dirty than the previous 39 entries in the studio's canon , The Emperor's New Groove is a film that trawled the deepest levels of Development Hell and finally emerged as more or less a spoof of its original concept.

Kuzco David Spade is the spoiled young emperor of a mountainous jungle nation based once again, very loosely on the Incan empire of South America. On the eve of his eighteenth birthday, he fires his ancient adviser Yzma Eartha Kitt from her high-profile job, prompting her and her dimwitted but affable lackey Kronk Patrick Warburton to assassinate him. The plan misfires, and Kuzco is instead accidentally turned into a llama. He's forced to team up with good-hearted family-man peasant Pacha John Goodman on a dangerous trek through the jungle to reclaim his throne — while Pacha tries to teach Kuzco just a little bit of humility in the process.
