Prince Charming? Seriously?

Kristen Bell Blasts Prince Charming For Kissing Snow White ‘Without Her Permission’

Actress Kristen Bell, who played the voice of Anna in Disney’s “Frozen,” argued there are plots points in the 1930s classic “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” that could be problematic for young children.

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” she said she asks her daughters. “Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”

  1. According to the always-reliable :O Wikipedia, in the Grimm original, the prince didn’t kiss her at all. He talked the dwarves into letting him take her coffin (!?!) and then the coffin gets dropped. “This caused the piece of poisoned apple to dislodge from Snow White’s throat, reviving her.” Okaaayyy.

    Would Bell be happier with this bit of necrophilia and bulemia? 😀

    Also, when the evil Queen shows up for the royal wedding (unsuspecting that the bride is Snow White), the prince recognizes her and orders the Queen “to wear a pair of red-hot iron slippers and dance in them until she drops dead for the attempted murder of Snow White, so that the wedding will peacefully continue.”

    That must have been quite the party. And does every Royal keep a pair of iron slippers around, for such occasions?

    Now, Sleeping Beauty – which is also considerably more gruesome in the original than the Disney – was originally awakened by a kiss, so rapey rape, of a hundred-year-old gal, no less.

    Now Ms. Bell has got me wondering if I’m allowed to wake anyone up without their permission. Do I have to wake them to get their permission to wake them?
