Disney Blocks Kids from Watching ‘Racist’ Films ‘Dumbo,’ ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Swiss Family Robinson,’ and ‘The Aristocats’

Disney has blocked a list of its own movies for kids on its streaming service claiming that the films are “racist.”

Here we go again.

Disney+ has announced that it will no longer let kids view classic films including Dumbo, Peter Pan, Swiss Family Robinson, and the The Aristocats.

The streamer has placed these films and others behind settings that will not allow accounts identified as accounts belonging to children, the New York Post reported.

On its site, Disney said it was blocking the movies for some viewers and cited Dumbo’s (1941) singing crows segment, which “pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations.”

“The leader of the group in Dumbo is Jim Crow, which shares the name of laws that enforced racial segregation in the Southern United States,” the company explained.

Other movies were axed for kids because of depictions of Native Americans and foreign people.

The Aristocats was also cited for its Siamese Cat segment where the cats sing in a stereotypical Chinese accent.

“These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now,” Disney’s notice reads. “Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.
