Children’s Film Villains

My
children are getting a taste for children’s animated films, especially with us
watching a few more with the colder weather keeping us indoors more. We have a habit of decluttering our own
films and selling dvds to make a few quid, but the boys collection keeps
growing as they happily watch their favourites again and again. They have even taken a shine to some of the
villains.

Boingo from Hoodwinked

With
a name like Boingo and a characteristically cute demeanour you have no idea he
is the naughty guy, he seems to go around hopping and being friendly (if not a
little nosey!). But all this is just a big
smoke screen for his plan to steal the fairy tale recipes. A pint-sized villain goes to show they can
come in all sizes, even with cottontails and big disarming bunny eyes (trust no one!).

Henry
J. Waternoose from Monsters, Inc.

The
main man himself in his dapper clothes and kind and caring nature for his
employees does not seem a natural villain, but yet again we are deceived and he
is up to no good, kidnapping sweet innocent children and getting them to scream
to generate energy to power the city of Monstropolis. Moral of the story do not trust over friendly bosses…

Vector from Despicable Me

I
love this guy, he has a pet shark, he seems to be a great evil mastermind, but
manages still to be conned by three adorable little girls selling cookies. He has a certain lovable nerdy naivety. Plus daddy kindly bankrolls him, after all if you’re
planning on being an evil villain this really helps, as watching the pennies
and budgeting would not seem sinister enough somehow!!!

Mother Gothel from Tangled

I
love a mean mother type always makes me feel like I am coping better and the
boys aren’t doing too badly. With all
intents and purposes Mother Gothel seems loving and kind, she lets Rapunzel
have a pet, keeps her in relatively nice accommodation (admittedly locked up in
a tower, but great views!) and has hobbies to follow, but she is plainly there to keep Gothel
young and beautiful (has she not heard of decent face creams!). Be weary villains are not all after the fame and glory some just want to look pretty!!!
