Princey quickly rises up because he's a Disney fan. Anxiety also pops up, because he also happens to be a Disney fan, but in his case because of the sinister messages he gets from Disney movies. Thomas decides to launch a debate between Princey and Anxiety where he'll tell titles of Disney movies and the others will tell what messages each of them take from each title.˛˛'''Release date''': January 9, 2017˛˛'''WARNING''': Untagged '''spoilers''' ahead. Read at your own risk.˛------˛˛!!Tropes˛˛* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Princey says that ''Snow White'' sends the message that people should "not accept fruit from random strangers". Thomas thinks that maybe the message is "Don't eat fruit", to which Princey quickly says "No!"˛* FreezeFrameBonus: While Virgil and Roman are arguing, there's a quick shot of Thomas looking at them and munching popcorn.˛* HiddenDepths: Anxiety reveals that he too is a Disney fan, to which Princey starts laughing at him. Later Princey reveals that, unexpectedly from him, there are also some things that bother him from Disney movies, particularly how hard it is for princes in many of them.˛* HypocriticalHumor: Princey complains about how rude Anxiety is for interrupting a vlog when he had just done the same with Thomas.˛* {{Shoutout}}: There are tons in this episode:˛** Mentions are made to the movies ''{{WesternAnimation/Cinderella}}'', ''WesternAnimation/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'', ''WesternAnimation/PeterPan'', ''{{Franchise/Frozen}}'', ''{{WesternAnimation/Aladdin}}'', ''WesternAnimation/TheFoxAndTheHound'', ''WesternAnimation/BeautyAndTheBeast'', ''{{WesternAnimation/Bambi}}'', ''{{WesternAnimation/Pocahontas}}'', ''WesternAnimation/SleepingBeauty'', ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleMermaid'', ''{{WesternAnimation/Mulan}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{The Lion King|1994}}'' while Princey and Anxiety discuss about them.˛** Princey repeatedly quotes ''Film/MaryPoppins'' until Anxiety finally [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it]]:˛--->'''Anxiety''': Why are you only quoting ''Mary Poppins''?\˛'''Princey''': [[SuddenlyShouting BECAUSE JULIE ANDREWS IS A BEAUTIFUL GODDESS AND BECAUSE I CAN, OKAY!?]]˛** Thomas mentions that he is a [[Literature/HarryPotter Hufflepuff]] and therefore he tends to run away from his problems. Anxiety asks him angrily not to make out all Hufflepuffs to be like that.˛** Thomas makes a reference to ''Series/StrangerThings'' mentioning how he closes the closet door in his bedroom in fear of the Demogorgon attacking him while he slumbers.˛* StockholmSyndrome: This is mentioned by Anxiety as the main motif of ''Beauty and the Beast''.˛* ThisIsUnforgivable: Princey's reaction to Anxiety saying that Disney movies have dark and twisted messages on them, something that for Princey is going "too far".˛* UnfortunateImplications: InUniverse. For Anxiety, a prince kissing a sleeping princess, whether if it is a [[LastKiss farewell kiss]] like in ''Snow White'' or a [[TrueLovesKiss kiss to break the curse]] like in ''Sleeping Beauty'', is kissing a sleeping woman without her consent.
