* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: In the sequel headmistress Miss Elspeth Lomax is lead to believe by Edward that Peter is in love with her, so she (portrayed as a man-hungry imbecile) aggressively tries to have sex with him, at one point pulling Peter on top of her while shouting "Take Me!" before he talks her down while trying to maintain the lie. As if that's not bad enough, at the time this was in theaters Disney was airing combination TV spots for two films in a single ad and one with TheRescuersDownUnder had the "Take Me!" line at the end, followed by Wilbur (John Candy) saying "That's a fabulous idea!"[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ke_p0KmCENU]]. This from the company that brought us a popular film about a [[spoiler:[[PrettyWoman prostitute turned 'princess']]]] and a beloved animated classic about a [[spoiler:[[TheLittleMermaid nearly topless teen]]]].
