Since Disney’s film and shorts are targeted at children, it appears that these subliminal messages are targeted at them. However, what good would it do to sublimate these sexual images to children? Although these cartoons are for children, these subliminal messages are targeted at adults for them to enjoy these ‘cartoons’ more.
One could argue that these artists were just having fun without thoughts of how their audience could be affected. After all, most of these images are not consciously visible to the audience, unless the films were watched in high definition or frame by frame, and work as inside jokes to the people in the industry. Although some, are a little more obvious.
But undeniably, the images are there and it is unquestionable that watching too much of these cartoons causes children to have mental and emotional problems.
