Dec 19, 2005

Nice Ideal. Good Teaser, enjoyable.
Dec 19, 2005

Hercules is not made up by Disney. He is a figure in Greek and Roman mythology.
Dec 19, 2005

Wait a second, you mean Ariel ISN'T real? Bummer. Great teaser!
Dec 19, 2005

I GOT IT!!! Great teaser
Dec 19, 2005

Great teaser! Of course I got it wrong! Keep 'em comin tho! Good job!
Dec 19, 2005

Missleman, the answer doesnt' say anything about the characters being invented BY DISNEY. It only said they were invented. Personally, I would have gone with "imaginary characters" to avoid confusion, but that's just me...

Anyway, great teaser! Had the right answer, but I second guessed myself upon reading the hint. I thought the word "ONE" was going to have something to do with the answer... you sneaky sneak!
Dec 19, 2005

Love it! I got it right away, but that doesn't take anything away. Continue....make more! Thanks
Dec 20, 2005

Nice One. With your clue of "ONE", Could it not also be Peter Pan? That is the only Disney movie listed where the main character did not have a love interest. (Wendy was more of a mother figure)
Dec 20, 2005

that was hard but fun!!
Dec 21, 2005

i think its messt up!!!!!!
noe i think its really cool
Dec 22, 2005

hey, good teaser! i thought it was the lion king b/cuz it was the only disney movie listed that DIDN'T have ANY humans in it AT ALL! bambi's mother was killed by a human (right?), the aristocats had human owners, the little mermaid fell in love w/ a human etc., but there are absolutly no people in the Lion King. but i didn't even think about fact vs. fiction! good job!
Dec 23, 2005

Cute and clever.... You're right...Pochohotas is based on a real character..didn't think about it.
Dec 27, 2005

Nice, enjoyable teaser.
Apr 05, 2006

good teaser. but i dont totally get the hint
Aug 15, 2006

But the movie Pocahontas had so little to do with the real Pocahontas, that it might be the movie Hercules has more to do with the historical Hercules. That's if there was a historical Hercules, which we don't know, but these hero stories usually start out with some basis in fact.
Aug 16, 2006

If thats true, then Pocahontas has only the name in common with the real figure! Hercules is SO wrong, they shouldn't even call it Hercules!
Aug 16, 2006

Heracles then. My point (pedantic and obtuse it may be) is that Heracles was a hero not a god, so the story probably started with a story of some real hero, and got embroidered over the years. OTOH, the movie Pocahontas had very little to do with the historical Pocahontas. (The racoon was good, but nothing else resembled reality.)
Aug 17, 2006

What does OTOH mean? And are you saying that the racoon Meeko character was real?
Aug 22, 2006

OTOH= On the other hand.

I am not saying the raccoon was hystorical, but it's actions reminded me of a raccoon. Nothing else seemed right.
May 23, 2008

good teaser, didn't get it at first then it hit me like a brick wall keep up the good work
May 30, 2009

This is a totally ambiguous teaser.

The answer could just as easily be 'The Little Mermaid' - reason: it's the only one set in the ocean.
May 30, 2009

I tcould also be Peter Pan because it's the only one where things that can't talk can't talk; all the others anthropomorphise (make things talk).
May 30, 2009

Nice one. Didn't get it right, had several other ideas for an answer. Thanks for posting.
May 30, 2009

Thinker10, that's inaccurate, isn't it? In Beauty and the Beast, the teapot, candle stick, and other inanimate objects talk, don't they? Anyway, I got the right answer, but not quite for the right reason. Still, I got it.
May 30, 2009

I guessed same as Smudge. Ariel lives in the ocean, the others all on land.
Another elimination/connection - weren't all of them EXCEPT BAMBI made relatively recently? I only remember Bambi from my younger days, and the rest from when the kids were young.
All great movies btw.
Happy Saturday!
May 30, 2009

I think Thinker10 meant just that - Peter Pan is the only one in which inanimate things DON'T talk. All other movies, like Beauty and the Beast, let objects talk.

great idea, but i agree... more than 1 answer is possible
May 30, 2009

I got it wrong. I was thinking that all of them were totally animated, except Peter Pan had real actors like Robin Williams. Wrong guess.
May 30, 2009

I was trying to choose which one has only animated characters; but couldn't come up with only ONE.
I still don't get the hint...
Still, it was fun.
May 30, 2009

I agree, the hint was confusing.

Anyway, I would have thought maybe the Aristocats, since I figured Disney made that one up, but the rest had all come from somewhere, like mythology or history or fables.
May 30, 2009

I got that it was pocahantas, but I thought it was because it was the only one that didn't have animals as characters. Great teaser!
May 30, 2009

sorry I'm putting two comments, but I wanted to say a bit more. Technically, Pocahantas was based on John Smith's diary of what he said about her, and he was known to exaggerate, so you could say she was made up, but I see your point. Also, it annoys me how everyone only knows Hercules. That's his Roman name. His greek name is Herakles, and the Romans changed it when they took over Greece, so his name is technically Herakles, but no one ever calls him that. I loved the teaser though.
May 30, 2009

I thought the same thing as thinker10, the fact that peter pan was the only one which didn't make objects/animals talk which I think of as a pretty big staple in Disney movies. Pretty fun though, just for the fact of reliving all those old movies again.
May 30, 2009

i just guessed Hercules!!!!
May 30, 2009

The hint made me believe the teaser was asking for the movie that didn't have a sequel - that had "only ONE" movie. I was trying to remember whether Peter Pan or Hercules or the Aristocats had sequels, but wasn't sure.
I didn't really enjoy this one. Too ambiguous.
May 30, 2009

I thought it was Lion King since that's the only movie not based on something else.
May 30, 2009

I thought it was Pocahontas because all the other movies had talking animals... so, that's another answer.
May 30, 2009

Seagulls, I'm with you. I was thinking it had to do with sequels.
May 30, 2009

Peter Pan also works because it's the only one in the group that has no talking animals (Pocahontas has meko the racoon)
May 31, 2009

Did Meko actually talk in Pocahontas?
May 31, 2009

Hah. I was thinking The Aristocats, since (I think) it was entirely a Disney invention.
May 06, 2010

I was thinking the same as you, FatHead!!! And to MissleMan, Hercules was from Roman mythology only. The Greeks called him Heracles (Hair-a-kleez).
May 31, 2010

To sykoone, The Lion King was based on Shakespeare's play "Hamlet".
Aug 01, 2012

All you that said this was a great teaser, can you tell me what made it great??? I thought it was lame!
Aug 01, 2012

Babe, you must be having some bad times. You have been very negative lately!!!
Aug 01, 2012

WHAT? Bambi isnt REAL?? I am CRUSHED !!!
Aug 01, 2012

These are dumb. I could pretty much single out a reason any single one of them are misfits:

Hercules- it is based on Greek mythology

The Lion King- the protagonist's father dies

Beauty and the Beast- there are 4 words in the title

The Jungle Book- there is an orangutan

The Aristocrats- the protagonist is a cat

Peter Pan- the protagonist's name is an alliteration

The Little Mermaid- It's centered in the sea

Bambi- it's got a tragic ending

All of them have their own aspects. I'd be surprised if anyone got this right - for the very reason you pointed out.
Aug 01, 2012

I love all these movies! Especially Pocahontas!
Aug 01, 2012

I got it right off the bat - read through the list and the answer just jumped out at me. Enjoyed it very much, though - enjoyed reminiscing about all of the old movies!

Thanks for a nice teaser!
