A Disney Theory

Again just something fun I wanted to do. Much like my last post this just a theory I created.

The Fairy Godmother from Cinderella is one of the most likable characters in the Disney canon. But did you know she has an evil counterpart? No it’s not Lady Tremaine, not Maleficent, not even the Fairy Godmother from Shrek 2. Her evil counterpart is actually, drum-roll please…………………………

Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid!

Yes I believe that Ursula is the evil counterpart of the Fairy Godmother. Both have a grandmotherly (well…mostly the fairy) design and have the power of magic. They also have parallels in terms of character and story. Cinderella and Ariel both have dreams but they are shatter when Cinderella’s step sisters shred her dress and Ariel’s father destroys her collection, both are left alone in tears. Funny enough, Cinderella’s sisters were jerks mirrors Ariel’s dad had good intentions. The Fairy Godmother and Ursula confront the main character at there most vulnerable. The way they interact with the main character is different. While the Fairy Godmother shows kindness towards Cinderella, Ursula shows manipulation towards Ariel. Both put a spell (while also singing a song) on the main character that has a time limit.

You’re probably thinking these characters are from different stories, big deal. However, these characters might exist in the same world. In the scene where Scuttle stalls the wedding, the King and Duke from Cinderella make a cameo in the crowd. So you see, Ursula is the yin to the Fairy Godmother’s yang, one shows kindness and the other shows evil intentions.

Do you think this is true? What other characters from Disney movies might have evil counterparts in other different Disney movies. Leave a comment below to give your theories.

A Gravity Falls Theory

This isn’t a movie review, it’s just something fun I wanted to do. Gravity Falls ended more then a year ago. I’ve heard of a lot of theories but haven’t really made any theories myself until this summer after I watched a specific movie.

Nate and Lee are two of Wendy Corduroy’s friends. They don’t have that much backstory compared to the rest of the characters. But this duo might have more a hidden history then we thought. I have a theory that Nate and Lee are none other then, drum roll please (drumming).

 George and Harold from Captain Underpants!

Yes, I believe that George and Harold and Nate and Lee are one of the same. I started to realize this a while after I watched the Captain Underpants Movie. FYI Kristen Schaal voice characters in both is just a coincidence. I know what your thinking, it’s because Nate and George are black and Lee and Harold are blonde isn’t it? Yeah but I think there’s more to this theory then just similar designs.

I have proof this theory might be true. Both duos love to cause mischief and trouble. In Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future Nate and Lee are shown switching the words on the school sign just like what George and Harold do at the beginning of every book. Both duos even hate school as shown in the same episode where they spell out No Escape. Another piece of evidence is in the episode Blendin’s Game. Nate and Lee are the only one’s in Wendy’s gang that do not show up in the past. You might say there somewhere else in Gravity Falls but who knows?

Here’s what I think happened. I think that the consequences for the whole Captain Underpants thing finally caught up with them. Maybe Mr. Krupp found out about what they done to him. So they have to change their identities and flee town. They ended up in Gravity Falls where they live now. No one knows about who they once were. Not even Wendy, Robbie, Tambry or Thompson know about there original identities or there mysterious past.

Do you think this theory could be true? Comment on what you think.

Teen Titans Go is the Greatest Show Ever!

Teen Titans Go is in my opinion the best cartoon of all time. It’s even better then the original in terms of characters, writing, animation and action. The characters are likable and writing is never mean spirited. It warms my heart that this show is shown almost all day instead of shows like Steven Universe, Gumball, or We Bare Bears. Teen Titans Go is such a masterpiece of animation that it’s hard to find any problems with it. Love this show.

APRIL FOOLS!!!!
I’m just kidding Teen Titans Go actually really sucks. LOL

Merry Christmas!

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Trip to New Port Beach

The reason why I didn’t do reviews for each week of Summer of  Steven was because I was on a trip to New Port beach California. Every two years my family from my Dad’s side would stay at a beach house (it’s been the same one for the last four times I’ve been there).

I love swimming at the beach with my cousins. I also love boogie boarding too. Now there was good news and bad news on that vacation. The bad news was that my brother had to head back to Salt Lake City for exams and wouldn’t be back until the day we left the beach house :(. The good news though is that I learned that some of my cousins actually watch Steven Universe :). We watched some of the new episodes and even a DVD I bought from home.

After the beach house and picking up my brother we went up to Los Angeles and stayed at a hotel called The Garlan. After we put our suitcases in the room we drove down to Hollywood to walk around. It was amazing to see the Chinese theater and the El Capitan theater for the first time. While waiting for the tour around Hollywood we visited Madame Tussaud’s wax museum. On the tour we drove around many celebrity’s houses and down famous streets of Hollywood.

On our last day of our trip The next morning we got up to head up to Universal Hollywood. We got front of the line passes and headed straight down to Harry Potter first. We rode all the rides and saw many of the shows. We also visited the From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical Laika Experience. While we were inside my Mom and I talked to an actual person from Laika. I wrote my name on a piece of paper which could me I might work at Laika some day. It was really awesome to see the puppets from the Laika movies.

Here’s my ranking of the rides.

8. Flight of the Hippogriff: A small ride that’s good for kids. Cute animatronic of the hippogriff.

7. Jurassic Park: The Ride: The details in the ride really make this ride memorable. It’s near the bottom because some of the animatronics seem stiff and i’m not a fan of the drop at the end. Still a good ride to cool down.

6. Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem: A fun improvement of the Jimmy Neutron Blast ride from Florida. This ride replaced Terminator 2 3d. So by closing down Cyberdyne systems the minions saved the future from Skynet 🙂

5. Studio Tour: An interesting  tour around the studios.

4. Revenge of the Mummy: The version in Orlando used to scare me. The first time when I saw the part with the fake exit area shocked me because I actually thought it was over. This version however feels more smaller, shorter and less scary. It’s still fun to ride though.

3. The Simpsons Ride: Never rode Back to the Future the ride but I can see why people would be upset. I love the Krustyland map in the front of the ride.

2. Transformers: The Ride: Supposed to be the California equivalent of “The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man” (my favorite ride from Orlando and all of Universal).

1. Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey: The Wizardly World of Harry Potter is amazing to walk around and the centerpiece to this land is the best ride in the park. I love Harry Potter. I love the books, the movies, and I love this ride. The details around the queue are amazing. The ride itself is amazing. It really does feel like your flying around Hogwarts. Much like Spider Man and Transformers this ride combines a simulator ride with a dark ride giving it more a experience.

The next day we went home, at the airport the gate was celebrating its first flight straight to Portland. They gave out cake and gift baskets. I had a fun time in California and I hope to return soon.

Alan Young R.I.P.

I have just heard the voice of Scrooge McDuck from the famous cartoon Ducktales has passed away. 😦

While Ducktales was not my favorite Disney cartoon, it did have one of my favorite Disney characters of all time. Scrooge isn’t the only character that Alan Young has played. He also played Wilbur Post in Mister Ed, Hiram Flaversham in The Great Mouse Detective, and Haggis McMutton in The Curse of Monkey Island. He might be gone but his greedy but lovable character Scrooge will keep on diving into his money.

To end this dedication is a salute to him.

DUCKTALES WOOHOO!

Weirdmageddon Part 3 1 Month Anniversary

It’s been a whole month since the series finale Gravity Falls. This show has an impact on me because this show actually takes place in my home state Oregon. Thank You Alex Hirsch for making one of the greatest TV show finales to one of the greatest cartoons of all time. Good Luck on your new show. I’ll leave you with a last code to solve. (Caesar cipher)
