This post really has nothing to do with YA, except that it’s about swooniness which means that IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH YA BECAUSE IT’S ABOUT SWOONINESS!!!!!
We’ve been talking lately about the hottest cartoon heroes ever (doesn’t everyone do this as it’s vitally important, sort of like making a list of your fav fictional boyfriends and lamenting the fact that they are, in fact, not real?). So we were all, hey, what the heck. Let’s pull a Mia and Lilly and make a stinking list already (for those of you who don’t know who Mia and Lilly are, I would chastise you, since you clearly you don’t get this reference because you haven’t read The Princess Diaries, the most awesome sauce book series ever, but I can’t really judge. We all have our issues).
Come on guys. You know you’ve watched these movies with your kiddos and been like, dayum. Princess So and So scored herself a stud. So without further babbling, here is our list, complete with commentary:
Tee: Oh yeah. I love this guy. The hubs claims he invented the smolder though, so they need to have themselves a smolder-off. And sidenote: diggin’ the hair.
Vee: Dude, I hang my head in shame. Despite numerous attempts, foiled by fate, I have yet to enjoy me some smolder look. And MFEO, you know how I be feeling about the smolder…a.k.a. stink eye. I must agree, that hair is righteous. This movie on my to-watch list this weekend!
Tee: WHHAAAAT!!!!???? For shame! You are missing out on some serious adorableness. He’s naughty, he’s funny, he’s cute. Oh and he and Rapunzel make googly eyes at each other because they’re in luuuurrve. Sa-woon.
Tee: Dumber than a doorknob, but super-handsome. I mean, he wants to do the whole chivalry bit, which is cute.
Vee: OMG, Prince Edward. HA! It’s just that, in all his dumb and dumberness, he makes you laugh, and then he smiles his “there’s an echo in mah head” smile, and looks at you with those clear blue eyes, and you’re toast. At least I was.
Tee: (sighs) Plus he was a good sport after losing his woman to McDreamy (who will always be the cute nerd from Can’t Buy Me Love. Always! I mean he loved Cindy despite the fact that she was s snob who wrote really bad poetry). Cheers to Edward!
Tee: I like that he’s not perfect, but he needs to lose the mullet.
Vee: Ok, this is where my crazy is fo sho revealed…I like him better as the Beast. Maybe it’s because he looks more manly that way than with the orange mullet. Just sayin’.
Tee: I don’t even want to think about what the sexy times would be like before the transformation. Hairy, I guess. No, I’ll take the mullet.
Tee: Oh sigh. Mr. E was my biggest cartoon crush until Flynn Rider dethroned him (please see “smolder”). Now that I’m looking at my former love, I think he has the crazy eyes, sort of like Damen on The Vampire Diaries. But I like. I like very much. Just, them eyes are crazy. Thazz alls I’m sayin.
Vee: Um dude, he is falling in love at first sight! Not crazy eye, eyes of loooooooove. And thing is, real life translation, jet black hair, sea blue eyes – hello! You know who has those same features? Superman. Thaz right. How can you go wrong with that? But I digress into Superhero Swoonies…totally diff topic. Any prince who takes you on a magical row-boat ride where one amazingly talented crab puts together a show just so he can kiss you is the prince for me. Wow, I never realized I was that passionate about my Little Mermaid. Ok, that’s a total lie. I so did.
Tee: SUPERMAN!!! Oh, double swoon. And now I have images of Henry Cavill, who is playing Superman in the next movie. This is never a bad thing. Also…I forgot to mention. Prince Eric had a nice speaking voice. We know how I feel about nice voices. Swoon City! And also, OF COURSE HE WAS FALLING IN LOVE WITH HER! SHE WAS NEKID!!!
Tee: Dude he sings, dances and fights dragons? Sign me up. He does look kinda dorky with the hat though.
Vee: DUDE! My first favorite Disney a) movie, b) princess and c) prince. Please let us not forget that this dude is also funny – and like in a sarcastic way. Little Vee saw that kind of humor – his droll exchanges with the horse just about killed me – and I was never the same again. This man fights one mean bish to get the girl then whisks her away to a fancy pants ball where he dances with her in fancy clothes? Where do I sign up?
Tee: In Maleficent’s defense, bish was green. She had reason to be cranky. I mean, she could have worn a hat to cover the horns (Prince Phillip has one she could borrow) because you can cover pointy horn thingies but you can’t cover her frog look. Also, Phillip is funny with his horse? I so do not remember this. Must re watch.
Tee: All I can say is “!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” And also, SHAZAM!
Vee: Dude. I knooooooooooooooow.
Tee: That song, Let’s Get Down to Business is totally stuck in my head now. Just sayin.
Vee: Really? I can help with that. Sha, la, la, la, la, la, don’t be shy, come and kisssss da guuurrrl! Thaz right.
Tee: Great! That one was in my head for about one solid year when Child #1 insisted on watching The Little Mermaid every single day. Thanks friend.
