  1. Hey Sadje, some cracking responses here 🙂

    Snow White was the first feature-length princess for Disney in 1937, so out of the two choices, you were right, but she wasn’t Disney’s first princess as that honour went to Persephone, who was featured in a short-length film also in 1937. It was Audrey Hepburn for Tiffany’s and King Henry the Fifth. True, you can’t compost plastic. When young, l also thought Rabbit was part of Rarebit! Yes, l agree monster worms that take over the world would be frightening. However, we all have something worse … they are called politicians!!

    So many thanks for taking part. Great answers – barefaced liars – l know, right – makes me shudder too!
