Underappriciated Villains

There are so many villains who go unnoticed! Well, I'm sure they would love if we talked about them more. After all, they did put in a lot of effort to become evil...

Here are some villains who want more acknowledgement.

Chernabog (Fantasia)
One of the scariest villains (if not the scariest) out there!

Madame Medusa (The Rescuers)

She's literally a freak and is obsessed with a diamond.

Percival C. McLeach (The Rescuers Down Under)

Just look at that face... don't you want to smack it?

Gantu (Lilo and Stitch)

No one ever thinks of him as the villain... but he is!

Horned King (The Black Cauldron)

Probably because he's in one of the least-known Disney movies.

Amos Slade (The Fox and the Hound)

He wants to shoot an innocent, little fox!

Aunt Sarah & Si and Am (Lady and the Tramp)

They cause nothing but trouble.

Edgar Balthazar (The Aristocats)

This guy... I think we can agree that we just want him dead.

How to Survive in Wonderland

Remain calm while falling.
You're not going to get hurt. So save your energy.

Don't eat or drink anything.

Alice learned that the hard way...

Never try to reason with anyone.
"Nonsense! I am as dry as a bone already. "

Try to avoid Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum as much as possible.
They'll never let you leave and cry when you do.

Don't attend any parties uninvited.
Chances are they'll end up being mad... and not 'angry' mad.

Don't talk to flowers.
They'll do anything to please you and then leave you upset.

Keep your temper.
You'll make everyone angry. Which you don't want.

Don't wander around the forest alone.
You will get lost.

Always do what the Queen of Hearts says.
"Your way? All ways here are my ways!"

and above all...

DON'T STEP ON THE MOME RATHS
