Is this good for the kiddos?
“Skeptical parents see repeated attempts at values manipulation toward liberal causes,” writes Nappa. “This includes villains portrayed as corrupt caricatures of real-world Democratic party opponents.

Other progressive bogymen cast in Pixar films include: greedy corporations (Monsters Inc., Toy Story 2); intrusive government (The Incredibles, Toy Story 3); and non-environmentalists (WALL-E, A Bug’s Life).”
