By Michael Fleming. Film Editor, Deadline Hollywood. Disney, the home of wholesome family entertainment, released an animated film that features a full-frontal — if almost subliminal — nude shot of one of its franchise females. The most compelling is the scene in which the cartoon Jessica Rabbit is riding with Bob Hoskins through Toon Town in an animated taxi. The cab careens into a light post, and both Hoskins and Jessica are thrown from the vehicle. Jessica spins in Kerrigan-like triple lutz fashion, with her red dress hiking up. On the first spin, she appears to be wearing underwear.

In another scene, Baby Herman fondles a woman as he passes under her dress and there is graffiti on a wall including a plug for a brothel run by Allyson Wonderland. The scenes, which Disney animators apparently felt were virtually subliminal and could not be detected by the naked eye, caused embarrassment at the Burbank-based studio--which is known worldwide for its wholesome, family entertainment. Word of the controversy also triggered a run on the laser disc at local video outlets. Fleming said that while unnoticeable at the usual 24 frames per second, the scenes are visible when viewed frame by frame, as is possible with laser-disc players and four-head VCRs. Thousands of the discs have already been sold. Disney officials were not immediately available for comment, but were said to be holding meetings to see what, if anything, should be done. Other scenes said to have been in the original film, according to Fleming, was one in which a weasel, told to frisk Jessica, puts his hand down her cleavage and emerges with a steel trap snapped shut on his arm. Disney weathered that. Hot Property. About Us.
What could be safer than a Disney cartoon? The Disney brand is all about fun for the whole family and the Mouse House works hard to maintain that image. But over the years, a few not-so-G-rated moments have popped up in the Disney shorts and movies. Check out ten of the most censored moments from Disney classics. During the scene where Prince Eric nearly marries a magically disguised Ursula, the bishop officiating the ceremony appears to be a little too excited about the impending nuptials. Whether it was an innocent error or someone trying to slip a suggestive image into the film, Disney has since edited the scene to remove the bulge.
