GUILTY! jail disney CRIMES OF
by Whatsits Galore

You've seen them in every Disney movie. They're mean. They're nasty. They're the Disney villains, the bad guys and gals who make life miserable for our heroes, while making the movies exciting for us. The villains are always defeated in the end, when all their vile plots and evil schemes are undone by the hero. Some villains are captured, some merely foiled. But if they ever went to trial, exactly what would they be guilty of? Nastiness is not a crime. Look here to find some of the actual crimes your favorite bad guys have committed.

Disney Villains from the regular animated features have their own site, but what about the baddies from the live-action, CGI, and Pixar films? This page is for them.

So, how did we decide which bad guys to include? Whoever we wanted to. We made no attempt to be fair or inclusive, just used the villains we liked or found particularly interesting. And we apologize if your favorite isn't here.
