Just for fun, I offer a competition/poll to solicit your thoughts on the best Disney film scene ever. Now, it's probably unfair to compare funny, moving, bombastic, etc. scenes with each other, but nobody ever said life was fair.
First, the categories:
Most Emotionally Moving (happy, sad, other)
Best musical production number.
Most beautiful animation/live production scene. (eye candy)
Most memorable or iconic.
Most innovative, clever or technically wonderful.
We'll take each category in turn. You submit your nominations then we'll have a poll to determine the winners. After the close of each poll, I'll note the top two in each category. The grand finale will be a last poll pitting each of the top two winners from each category against each other. This will be our unscientific determination of The Best Disney Film Scene... EVER. Yep, this will take a couple of months to come to fruition, but it should be interesting.
1. Any Disney production is eligible.
2. The "scene" may actually be comprised of several shots and angles but must be recognizable as a discreet section of the production as a whole. (ie: the "Be Our Guest" sequece in "Beauty & The Beast" or the "Feed The Birds" scene from "Mary Poppins.")
3. You may nominate as many as you like.
4. Nominations for each category will last for 1 week. Then the top 10 from that thread will be placed in the poll. The poll will last for another week.
5. At the end of each poll, the top two will be noted and will be eligible for the final "Best Disney Film Scene Ever" poll.
Let's begin. Please post your nominations for the FUNNIEST Disney film scene ever. (Features, shorts, cartoons, TV....everything is eligible.)
I'll lead off: In 1951, Disney released a Chip 'n Dale cartoon called "Out Of Scale" featuring Donald Duck. Donald has made a "ride-on" train set in his backyard. Chip 'n Dale's tree home is out of scale to Donald's railroad so he chops it down. No problem, Chip 'n Dale move into one of Donald's scale homes along his railway. When Donald discovers them, he torments with with hoses, heat lamps, etc. to change their "weather" and drive them nuts. The scene is hilarious!
Victoria also would like to nominate the "I love to laugh" scene in Mary Poppins where Bert, Mary and Uncle Albert all float around near the ceiling while singing.
(If you can think of a category that I missed and really feel that it should be included, please let me know.)
