    You get an entire cake to yourself but it’s covered in fondant. Congrats kid, you played yourself.

      Kid’s just on the right side of history.

      There are no just kings, the end of Mufasa and his literal reign of terror is cause for celebration.

      Honestly betterr than what I was watching, who the fuck lets a 4 year old watch fucking Day After Tomorrow? And thats on the lighter side, I still cant enjoy Japanese horror because my mother decided that watching the original Japnese version of the Ring with her small child was a great idea. Just glad I grew into slashers.

      I was thinking the same king. Media consumption for a 3yo, total, per day, should be less than 30 minutes. And probably should not include The Lion King, cartoon or not.

        My issue with it wasn’t screen time, it was the disturbing death scene.

                To be fair, Scar ordered Simba killed, too. It was the hyenas who failed to finish the job and lied about it.

                …Actually, that reminds me: the “Be Prepared” villain song ruins the anti-monarchy lesson. Specifically, the line:

                Idiots! There will be a king. I will be king!

                So yeah, even watching any part of The Lion King fails at teaching that lesson. You’d have to pick a different show entirely (maybe *Kimba the White Lion, LOL).

      Yes. Circle of life and hakuna matata are great songs. Besides, Hamlet is a good story. Or the Northman or whoever was first.

      3, normally I’d agree, but this isn’t too far fetched for a 3 yo to grasp. Far more likely than those obvious exaggerations for sure.

      It just seems out there because the parent already did all the hard work of figuring out what the hell they were trying to say and translated it from toddler speak for us

      It probably went something like this:

      What cake do you want?

      Sad Lion King!!!

      Why sad?

      <15 minutes later>

      Ok, so you want the sad scene in Lion King where mufasa dies, why?

      I want ALL my cake!!!

      Why?

      <Another 15 minutes later>

      Oh, you want the Lion King part where the lions dad dies so everyone at your party will be too sad to eat any of it right?

      Yea!!..no‽

      <Another 15 minutes explaining your sentence and getting confirmation>
