THE PURGE! Disney Pulls Dumbo, Peter Pan, The Aristocats, Swiss Family Robinson for Younger Viewers

The Disney Corporation moved in recent weeks to limit access for younger viewers to classic cartoons ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Peter Pan,’ and other titles over “racist stereotypes” and other content.

According to the Disney website, ‘Peter Pan’ was included because “The film portrays Native people in a stereotypical manner that reflects neither the diversity of Native peoples nor their authentic cultural traditions. It shows them speaking in an unintelligible language and repeatedly refers to them as ‘redskins,’ an offensive term. Peter and the Lost Boys engage in dancing, wearing headdresses and other exaggerated tropes.”
