Love at Dawn

In babying characters and even objects, Disney reaches for love in its origin, at the dawn of life; the love of the young and pure, the love that babyies , that turns the loved one into a being to be protected and also hugged. It inspires a physical as well as an emotional drive: body and heart at the same time. In fact, physical affection seemed so fundamental to Disney that, according to Michael Barrier, when refusing to make a cartoon around a rooster, he asserted that the latter didn’t make one feel like picking it up and petting it (Michael Barrier "The Animated Man – A Life of Walt Disney")
