The best of the Disney animated features were not innocent children's entertainments, but blood-curdling stories of doom and obsession with a few smiles along the way, of course. They only looked innocent because they were cartoons. Reflect for a moment on the Island of Lost Boys in " Pinocchio ," or what happened to Bambi's mother. The great Disney cartoons contained all of the fearsome possibilities of the Grimm fairy tales - or, for that matter, of life itself. Only in recent years have the Disney feature cartoons grown pale and innocuous, as part of the general delusion that harmless means colorless. Now comes a new Disney animated film in the old tradition.
