Way Too Seriously is a weekly podcast in which Jan and Paul Moffett talk about the implicit biases, the assumptions, and the thematic implications of kids’ movies with exactly the appropriate level of seriousness.
In this week’s WTS Paul and Jan are talking about a Disney classic neither of them have nostalgia for: The Great Mouse Detective! We talk about Vincent Price, damsel mice, and systemic anti-rat bias.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about The Great Mouse Detective. Neither of us saw this movie as children and we have no nostalgic affection for it. If you do, we’d love to hear your thoughts! Were we too hard on this movie? Let us know! We’d also love to hear your thoughts about any of the children’s movies we’ve talked about on Way Too Seriously. Talk to us on Twitter and let us know what you think. Or shoot us an email at waytooseriouslycast at gmail.com if what you have to say will take more than 140 characters. You can also discuss this episode in our subreddit.
