Baconsale Episode 13: Ranking Disney Part 2 (Tier As Old As Time)

For our lucky 13th episode, it’s a (straight-to-video) sequel! We finally finish our quest to place beloved Disney animated features into three different tiers. This time, Baconsale ventures into the realm of lesser-known Disney films. Plus, Jacob compares Disneyland to a pitiful trash heap, Kent gets stuck on the song lyrics of Beauty and the Beast and Joel can’t stop saying Pooh. Like any sequel, this episode is bigger, yet doesn’t capture the magic of the original.

  1. Great! Now I have Kent’s version of Tale as Old as Time, stuck in my head. I even know a lot of the words!
    I think my kids have seen those movies you did in the flash round. My mother in-law has them and the kids borrow them all the time.
    By the way, I never grew up watching Bambi or Snow White. I hadn’t seen it until I was almost out of high school and Dinosaur is stupid!
    (I also read my post before sending it to fix my stupid swype choices of words)

    1. I was listening to it while I went for my walk around my neighborhood. I umm, tried not to look too crazy while laughing.


  2. Dwarfs vs. dwarves. Dwarfs is the standard plural of the noun dwarf. Dwarves is a newer variant popularized (though not invented) by English author J.R.R. Tolkien in his fantasy fiction works, including The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.


  3. Robin Hood is not a Tier 3. No, people do not think of Kevin Costner’s Robin Hood over Disney’s. It is a high tier 2 for me. The whistling toon is so memorable. It holds up. My kids love it too.


  4. How many tiers are there? I thought there were only 3. If there are only 3, then a “Just Okay” should be Tier 2 and a “that sucks” is tier 3. Aristocats and Chicken Little are not in the same tier as Big Hero 6.


    1. And after reading the original stories, I am disappointed in the Disney Pooh movies. I would like them to reinvent the Pooh stories more in line with the original stories.


  5. The only way Disneyland is better is because Disneyland is more condensed so there is less walking. Otherwise I agree with Jacob, DisneyWorld is so much better.


  6. “Less is more”, a phrase from the Robert Browning poem “Andrea del Sarto, also called ‘The Faultless Painter'” published in 1855. The phrase was adopted by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as a precept for minimalist design in the 1960s.
