When it comes to the Disney movies that we all grew up loving, it can be difficult to pick out any flaws. That being said, that doesn't mean that the movies are flawless. When it's put into the perspective of a comic strip, some of the major problems in Disney movies seem pretty avoidable.

Paul Westover, an illustrator at Dorkly, envisioned some situations that would have cut some classic animated Disney movie runtime down by quite a bit had they been included. Check out these five hilarious situations that would have changed our favorite Disney movies for good.

1. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Who's afraid of a poison apple when you've got seven awesome dwarves buying you the greatest protection in all the land?

2. The Lion King

I mean really, who would have believed Scar anyway? As the jealous younger brother he would have been one of the most likely suspects from the get-go.

3. Cinderella

They were dancing together less than 24 hours earlier. Why was it so hard for Prince Charming to remember her face even if it was covered in soot?

4. The Little Mermaid

Maybe the problem here is that Ariel didn't know how to read or write. If that's not a compelling argument for the importance of education then I don't know what is.

5. Mulan

Flash these soldiers all you want, Mulan, they really only care about that living guardian spirit on your shoulder.
