You may be surprised to find out that there are several Disney movies that taught us terrible lessons. A lot of these animated films are classic childhood memories for me, and some do have uplifting, positive messages. Once I became older however, I realized that as entertaining and intriguing some of these movies will always be, there are subliminal hidden messages that aren't too appealing. So, let’s take a look at the Disney movies that taught us terrible lessons and still do to this day.
1. The Little Mermaid
Starting off this list of Disney Movies that Taught Us Terrible Lessons is the "Little Mermaid." Ariel's biggest dream is to leave the sea and walk on foot to find the man of her dreams, so she makes a deal with the sea witch Ursula. There is however, always a catch when you deal with evil. In exchange for her wish, Ursula takes away Ariel’s beautiful singing voice. Somehow, she and Prince Eric still end up falling in love despite her voice impairment. Lesson - making a deal with the devil can bring about positive results. It all depends on how you look at it.
