Andrew LaSane

In the latest installment of mental_floss List Show, host John Green takes a deeper look at the iconic Disney catalog to see what Walt and the rest of the creators got wrong about history. From references to creatures and people that don't match the timelines of the films, to imagined architectural features that don't exist on real world buildings, Green shares 24 examples of things that just don't add up in the Disney canon. Offenders include Frozen (2013), 101 Dalmatians (1961), Aladdin (1992), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Hercules (1997).
