Disney Plus Has Now Made ‘Dumbo’ And ‘Peter Pan’ Unavailable To Users Under Seven — Claim The Movies Have ‘Racist’ Stereotypes

Disney+ restricted “Dumbo” and “Peter Pan” from being available to viewers under the age of 7, according to Fox News.

Viewers over the age of 7 will still be able to watch them and other movies like them such as “Swiss Family Robinson” and “The Aristocats.”

The movies won’t come up on young children’s profiles on Disney+.

“Dumbo,” made in 1941, features a group of crows who “pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans.” The lead crow is named Jim Crow, which were laws that enforced segregation in parts of the U.S. until the Civil Rights movement, Fox News reported.

“Peter Pan,” 1953, includes exaggerated racial stereotypes of Native people, including a song called “What Made the Red Man Red.”

“Swiss Family Robinson” reinforced “otherness” by portraying the barbaric pirates who attack the family as a “stereotypical foreign menace,” with many of the pirates in “brown” and “yellow” face.

“In “The Aristocats,” a Siamese cat named Shun Gon is voiced in bad English by a white actor, plays the piano with chopsticks and has exaggerated stereotypes likes slanted eyes and buck teeth,” Fox News reported.
