In conclusion to this research project I have found that I have enjoyed revisiting some of my favourite films of my youth. I find that I still enjoy Disney today just as much as I have for the past twenty four years. Although I have found some questionable material in my research and in revisiting the movies, I think that all in all Disney maintains a great standard for children's entertainment. Each movie, Lady and the Tramp, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast will likely maintain their status as Disney classics regardless of whether the films contain appropriate messages for the youth of today.
Essentially it is up to the parents and the teachers of the youth to ensure that they are receiving and interpreting messages from the media in an appropriate manner and keeping and open and ongoing dialogue about what children are watching on television and the messages that are being sent.
Thanks for the good times Disney, I remain your loyal fan.
