Agreed I love how dark Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame is. I love Elton John but Hunchback's songs were amazing. Though I have to say I'm a tad biased because I prefer villains over protagonists and I listened to a lot of Tony Jay growing up. Reboot FTFW.
So naturally Claude Frollo was my favourite and honestly he's easily the most sinister villain in Disney.
If this doesn't give you chills, then I dunno...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwnh-...tailpage#t=78s
My favourite song from them has to either be Jimmy Carter or Formula 409. One is just a somewhat melancholy song and the other is just pure random hilarity.
I've always loved the Hunchback simply because of how dark it got at points. I like dark tales. I guess I'm a weird kid? I don't know...Hamlet is like my favorite play.
Followed closely by the Life and Death of Richard the Second, as evidenced by my frequent use of "Come let us sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings."

I hate Google Chrome so much... always crashes unexpectedly when I want to make a paragraph break on this site.
Anyhow as I kid I was crazy for Pinocchio that I bought 2 copies of Disney's animated and the 1996 live action one too.
But rewatching the movies again I found Hunchback the best. It wasn't overly cheery with the songs, except for Festival of Fools but what is a Disney film without one?
And it showed how reality really is and that the pretty guy will get the girl not the good natured protagonist. Of course they fuck this in the sequel that I never watched nor shall I ever.
So, we had some like super badass Irish guy translate Beowulf in our Old English literature book and...I'm wondering why they didn't get him to translate Chaucer. Because, seriously, fuck Chaucer.
You can't see it but I'm flipping off my book right now.

Unchecking(make it not blue) that little blue box solves it for me.
Skelington should go back and watch Hunchback soon.

Of course Lion King will have better reviews it was far more popular and people prefer happy endings and cute animals and overall happy stories with some tragedy. Hunchback's score isn't what it should be for there's a huge discreprancy between people/vote and I felt it was for a more matured audience than kids since kids couldn't really relate to Quasi since he is ... repulsive.
Hehe I'm so horrible I think the only thing I've ever read from Shakespeare was Othello. I watched the film too, that also had Kenneth Braughnan as Iago the asshole and Laurence Fishburne as the moor, I enjoyed it a lot. Something about Laurence yelling "Lewd minx" always brings a smile to my face.

I haven't seen Othello though. Someone told me I would enjoy it but it isn't my favorite of Shakespeare's plays.
