8 Thoughts on “A new Hunchback Show ……

    I too grew up during Disney’s Rennaisance and I remember every summer seeing each movie and knowing all the words to every song. I’m not saying that Disney’s adapatation of HOND isn’t without its charm or its moments and I still enjoy watching it and it makes me feel like I’m 10yrs. old again…brings me back to the awesomeness that was the ’90’s and being a kid. It was probably my favorite Disney movie growing up and I normally watch it now when I’m sick because it brings back good memories and makes me think “If time travel were possible 10yr. old me would be kicking my ass right now.”

    You can find clips of The Magical Adventures of Quasimodo on Youtube and according to Wikipedia you can purchase the DVD set online from Target, Walmart…etc.
    Okay and now for this HOND/NDDP porn? Where did you find that out? I knew there was an adult graphic novel, For The Love of Esmeralda…Once I did a search for NDDP/HOND graphic novels and that was one of the results.

    I have a love/hate situation with the Disney adaptation. It’s the first HOND adaptation I can clearly remember and as a kid when all the other girls had boyfriends I wanted one too, so I wanted to look just like Esmeralda someday and have boys like me. But as an adult there are so many flaws in the Disney adaptation.

      I was having a conversation with a friend where I just happened to wonder aloud, “I wonder if there’s any Hunchback porno movies?” Amazingly, this possibility had never occurred to me before. My friend took it upon himself to investigate, and later told me there was a XXX movie made in 1992 called “Quasimodo 2000.”

      My curiosity was piqued so I took a deep breath and started googling that movie as well as HoND porn flicks in general. I came across two more: One called “The Hunchback of Nasty Dames” (1997) and another called “Paul Norman’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1992). The latter might actually be the SAME film as “Quasimodo 2000,” just under a different title. I’m not sure. I mean, I can understand Hunchback porn being released in 1997 in the aftermath of the Disney movie, but what were the odds that two different adult Hunchback films were released in 1992?

      “Hunchback of Nasty Dames” seems to be pure silliness and stupid on purpose, while “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” actually seems to attempt some drama and pathos. Click on the following links at your own risk.

      It’s interesting that you enjoyed Disney’s HoND as a kid and but not so much as an adult, because my experience was the opposite. It didn’t make much of an impression on me as a kid–at least, not more than any other Disney animated movie of the 1990’s. I grew up during the Disney renaissance, so I took great animated Disney musicals for granted.

      I saw it again in September of 2011, as a young adult, and for some reason it made a strong emotional and aesthetic impact on me. Yes, it is highly flawed. That’s partially WHY I like it. To make an extremely cheesey comparison, HoND is like the “Quasimodo” of Disney films: the ugly, unwanted child that they lock away in a tower and don’t like to talk about. But I find its bizarreness kind of charming, and if you can look past its flaws there is a lot to love about it.

      (To be fair, Disney DOES acknowledge HoND. Featuring it in Kingdom Hearts is proof of that. “The Black Cauldron” is probably the true ugly stepchild of animated Disney films. I also enjoyed that one despite its flaws.)

    That said, whenever I watch the Disney sequel, I can’t shake the feeling that I’m watching a long pilot for a failed “Hunchback” animated TV series. Maybe it’s a good thing that a Hunchback cartoon show was never made after all.

      I would probably watch this, just for the fact that it is HOND/NDDP related. And there was actually a short lived animated TV series The Magical Adventures of Quasimodo. It centered around Quasimodo’s adventures w/Esmeralda and some dude named Francois and of course, Frollo was the villain.

      • AnaykhOntheDoor on 11/28/2012 at 10:21 pm said:

        Oh, me too. I would watch any crazy crap that’s HOND/NDDP related, which the possible exception of… porno flicks. (I have just discovered the existence of a couple of “Hunchback” based adult films.)

        I’m aware of “The Magical Adventures of Quasimodo” and I’d really like to see it. I was just musing about a hypothetical show specifically based on the Disney movie, because that movie is what brought me into HOND in the first place so it’s pretty dear to my heart.

    I would watch this, if only because I find it hilarious that Oaf has the exact same voice as Patrick the starfish.

    Sometimes I wish there had been a Disney Hunchback TV series akin to “Aladdin.” The first movie ended with plenty of possibility to further adventures: We would watch Quasimodo explore Paris (and probably other locales), discovering new things and getting used to being “out there.” He would be accompanied on his adventures by Phoebus, Esmeralda, and Clopin, who would all be dealing with new developments of their own. Phoebus and Esmeralda’s romance would continue to develop, and maybe they’d deal with conflict caused by their racial, cultural, and class differences (the movie never even seemed to allude to these problems, which always bugged me). Clopin, Esmeralda, and the rest of the gypsies would deal with their social role changing in the aftermath of Frollo’s death. They’ve been persecuted for decades, so suddenly NOT being forced underground would be quite an adjustment for them. As a result, the balance of power might shift in the gypsy community and Clopin might struggle to hang onto his leadership role. And of course, all these serious themes would be balanced with cute gargoyle and goat antics for the kids.
