the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Teal! Enjoy the ride as we share our individual
picks as to which villain should have a bigger presence in the parks.
My vote for
most underrated villain is Madame Medusa,
the antagonist in Disney’s 1977 film, The Rescuers!
Medusa is a wonderful villain – she is self-centered,
abusive and downright mean! She reminds
me a lot of Cruella DeVille. For some reason, however, Cruella is
well-represented at the Disney Parks (particularly at Halloween-time), while
Medusa is snubbed. Medusa is far more wicked than Cruella, in my opinion! She doesn’t
kidnap puppies – she kidnaps a child and forces her into a precariously dangerous
situation in an attempt to locate a piece of hidden pirate treasure – a humongous
diamond known as the Devil’s Eye!
Once she gets the jewel she double-crosses her bumbling henchman,
Snoops, and attempts to keep the booty for herself -- and steals a little girl's teddy bear in the process! Oh, she is “a bad ‘un!”
Let’s bring Madame
Medusa to the Disney Parks – her character would make for a hilarious
