    Sorry, but I think the scene of him burning everything down is a hell of a lot more traumatic than him sniffing someone's hair (which was on TOP of her HEAD).

    Also, I don't think he was nearly as "lustful" as Gaston in Beauty & the Beast, who had NO problem objectifying women.

    But he sure did have an awesome catchy theme song!
    I lurk.

    I'm not quite sure I agree with that. Gaston seemed to want Belle simply because she was the moast beautiful, therefore he was entitled to her. She was a trophy wife. I never really read lust in Gaston, merely priviledge.

    Frollo, on the other hand, wanted Esmeralda, in the most base, animalistic, male-wanting-a-female way. No love, no affection, just pure lust. I think that made him far worse than Gaston...

    Just my opinion...
    Honor those who fall under the sword.
    But pity the warrior who has slain all his enemies.

    Lust - For Esmerelda
    Greed - Wants what he can't have: power over everyone
    Anger/wrath - Hellfire scene
    Envy - To Phinius - for Esmerelda AND to Esmerelda for her vitality
    Sloth - Doing nothing while Quasi was being whipped
    Pride - His takes of himself on the gypsies
    Gluttony - His "Hall of Justice" is too much

    I might be stretching it too much on a couple, but this is one way to support your theory.

    Yea Sloth and Gluttony seem to be the ones that throw a wrench into the theroy. Still, it's an interesting thought. I'll have to do some more thinking on this.
    What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

    Maybe everybody noticed this already, but when I watched Hunchback a second time it seemed to me that the Gargoyles might just be a figment of Quasi's lonely imagination.
    Once I realised this it bought some new meaning to their scenes and helped deepen Quasi's character.

    I like to think of them as Hunchback’s Tyler Durdens.

    Yes that was the intention. Even in the book Quasimodo talks to the gargoyles and thinks of them as friends. The only difference is that they don't talk back. The probelm with this in Disney's film though is that they are not consistant. There are a few times the Gargoyles come to life and do things that they couldn't if they were just imaginary. For example, helping Quasimodo defend the church. There is another instance where Djali is sniffing Hugo (if I remember correctly) and he comes to life for a second to stick his tounge out at her.

    These might seem nit picky, but these moments (and others) contradict the idea that the gargoyles lives are only figments of Quasimodo's imagination. They also cheapen the already purile gargoyles,making them even more of an annoyance.
