Disney crossovers are everywhere these days. Disney Princesses can claim crossover creativity as horror icons, movie favorites, and now even as Disney Princess Golden Girls.
Combining characters from different pixie dusted realms is nothing new. Regularly “re-imagined,” Disney property “Star Wars” has been revisited in Muppet make-overs, Disney Characters crossovers, as Pixar/Cars characters as well as in three episodes, of the Fox (soon to be Disney) television show “Family Guy” (movies IV-VI).
Enter artist, “cat lover and corn dog enthusiast” (per her BuzzFeed contributor page) Alicia Herber. Clever creations on her Instagram feed, for example, find Sesame Street’s Burt & Ernie and Bevis and Butthead characters cast as female roles.
In addition to those PBS and MTV inspired sublime selections, Touchtone Television’s favored foursome, “The Golden Girls,” graciously undergo an animated Disney Princess treatment. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia find themselves recast as cartoon creations from popular Disney animated movies.
Transformed into the beauty of the ball, Rose is revealed as Cinderella in this magical moment.
Perhaps as a nod to her many boyfriends, Sophia sets the scene as Snow White.
Blanche becomes Belle, from “Beauty and the Beast.”
As Ariel, Dorothy makes a splash in this memorable scene.
In total, Herber crafted nine different Disney Princess Golden Girl delights for Buzzfeed. Select scenes from “Snow White,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Pocahontas,” “Aladdin,” and “Mulan” make royal appearances.
Still favored by fans some 26 years after the show ended production, “Golden Girls” lives on in syndication. Originally aired on NBC from 1985-1992, Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia now appear as programing on the Hallmark Channel and TV land, as well as on demand from Amazon Prime Video, Hulu and Vudu.
