You saw that Bruce just listed one in his Sunday auction, right? ....
I hadn't until you said that, so thank you very much!
Anthony, can you explain why you covet the princess penis poster please?
Disney's animated films are surrounded with urban legends. From pictures of topless women in The Rescuers
supposedly telling teenagers to take their clothes off. The penis being drawn into The Little Mermaid
poster is one of the more famous, and true, legends surrounding Disney films and therefore deserves some historical recognition. Whether it be crude or not, it's a legitimate piece of Disney history that an artist drew a penis hidden in The Little Mermaid
and nobody noticed until it came out on VHS.
Since the "surprise" wasn't found until the VHS release, all of these posters remained in circulation and were never recalled. So the poster feels unique. If the poster were not a big practical joke, I wouldn't want it. I'm not particularly fond of the artwork. But it's Disney history, and as an animation fan, it's my duty to acquire and preserve the practical penis for as long as I am collecting.
I counted 8 penis's on the poster and nearly threw up after the forth. I won't be bidding for it.
But Steve, there's only one
penis on the poster. Hmm... What would Freud say?
