Many of you may have caught the Saturday Night Live skit on the Real Housewives of Disney recently, but I see so many other Disney characters as ideal candidates for the Survivor reality show. Think about what they’ve all been through.
Poor Bambi saw his home burn down.
Mowgli was raised by a bunch of animals.
Quasimodo got stuck in a tower and ultimately had to save the people who teased him.
Simba was tricked by his mean uncle and told he was responsible for his father’s death.
Poor Lady had to take a back seat to a baby and ended up in love with The Tramp.
And my favorite character of all, Dumbo, was teased relentlessly because of his huge ears and separated from his mother.
The list goes on and on. And on.
But Dumbo IS my favorite because he turned that negative into something amazing, something magical. Dumbo is the ultimate survivor in my book because he didn’t just persevere, he learned to “work it”. He showed all the mean guys just how good being different could be.
So, when it comes to the player holding the final flame, Dumbo, you are Disney’s Ultimate Survivor to me.
Who do you think would be the last to leave the island?
