While Disney films have brought us songs, tears, and cheer, they’ve also brought us groan-inducing chuckles in the form of a good (or bad) pun from time to time. Here are some of our favorites!
The Lion King
It’s our problem-free, pun philosophy.
Beauty and the Beast
This subtle reference was a real work of art and got our gears turning.
Winnie the Pooh
Rabbit: “Tie them together Piglet can you tie a knot?”
Piglet: “I cannot.”
Rabbit: “Uh, so you can knot?”
Piglet: “No, I cannot knot.”
We’ve all been there. Case in point: After a full day of walking at the Disney Parks.
Marlin: “There was a mollusk and a sea cucumber. The sea cucumber walks over to the mollusk and says ‘with fronds like these, who needs anemones?’”
Dad jokes … are we right?
Genie: “Well I feel sheepish! Okay you baaa’d boy, but no more freebies.”
Since this moment occurred after Genie realized Aladdin had tricked him, we guess you could say Aladdin pulled the wool over his eyes.
Singer: I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
will send me someone to lava.
I lava you.
Be right back, overflowing with feels.
“Zero to Hero”: “From appearance fees and royalties, our Herc had cash to burn, now nouveau riche and famous, he could tell what the Grecian “earn”!”
Someone better call IX I I cause this pun is on intellectual fire!
