Disney fans find 'Mandela effects' in old films that ruin childhoods forever


If you were a Disney fan as a child, or even if you still are as an adult, chances are you remember some of the most iconic lines from your favourite animated classics.

But what if someone told you that the quotes you remember weren’t in the movies? Or that the characters don’t look like you remember them?

Well, unfortunately for some fans, they had their version of reality shattered by a woman on social media after she made it her mission to disillusion people of the “Mandela Effects” they have fallen prey to.

A Mandela Effect refers to a collective misremembering of specific details or events, often attributed to false or altered memories shared among groups of people. It is named after a period of time where people believed Nelson Mandela had died years before he actually did.

Ashley Ridgely-Smith, who posts online under the username @ashley.entangled, claims fans have misremembered everything from song lyrics to Mickey Mouse’s appearance.

Alice in Wonderland 

Kicking off the list was the beloved tale of Alice in Wonderland, the story of a girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world where very little makes sense. It is home to beloved characters like the Mad Hatter or Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dee.

Cakes and drinks can make you bigger or smaller and there is a Chesire cat that can turn invisible. Many people remember the iconic line from this mysterious cat being “we’re all mad here”.

But if you remember it this way, you would be wrong. Ashley explained in her TikTok video that the line is actually “most everyone is mad here”, noting that the line people remember isn’t in the movie at all.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is a childhood favourite for many, with the song Hi-Ho, sung by the dwarves being one of the most recalled songs from the movie. However, one of these so-called “Mandela Effects” is featured in the song.

In the clip, which has claimed more than 87,000 likes, she explained: “We all know the Hi-Ho song, but do we really? Many people remember the line from the song: “hi-ho, hi-ho. It’s off to work we go.

“But what if I told you that in the current reality that we’re living in. That was never said. The line in our current reality is hi ho, hi ho. ‘It’s home from work. We go.’ They never, ever said it’s off to work. We go in the current reality that we’re living in.”

Another one that can be seen in Snow White comes from the scene with the evil Queen speaking with her magic mirror. Many remember her saying “Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all”

However, the actual line is “Magic Mirror”, which has left fans stunned. One user said: “The Mandela effect is just the universe gaslighting us ,” while another joked: “Why can’t the Mandela effect be helpful…like everyone remembers me as being poor..but current reality I am a billionaire.”

Tinkerbell’s Intro

Many Disney fans are baffled to hear that the Disney intro with Tinkerbell flying by and using her magic on the Walt Disney logo didn’t actually exist. The shooting star flies over the castle without an appearance from the beloved fairy, which originally appeared in Peter Pan.

“If you remember seeing Tinkerbell, you’re not from this reality,” Ashley quipped. However, some fans have explained that Tinkerbell’s intro appeared on the intro for Disney’s Fast Play.

Cruella De Vil

“How do you remember her name being spelled?” the social media user asked, as she claims some people remember it as “Cruella De Ville”. However, it has apparently always been “De Vil”.

Mickey Mouse

Mickey Mouse is possibly Walt Disney’s most famous character. Everyone knows what he looks like — or at least, they think they do.

In Ashley’s list, she claims there are actually two effects around Mickey’s appearance that have caused debate. She said: “The first one being do you remember Mickey Mouse having suspenders or no suspenders? Turns out in our current reality, Mickey Mouse has never worn suspenders.

“So if you remember suspenders, you’re not from here. And the other one is about Mickey Mouse having a tail or not. So do you remember Mickey Mouse having a tail, or do you remember Mickey Mouse having no tail?

“A lot of people say that they remember Mickey Mouse having no tail. But in the current reality that we’re living in, Mickey Mouse has always had a tail. Even back to the Steamboat Willie days, this is a favourite for me.”

Spooky!
