I have always considered The Hunchback of Notre Dame a very underrated Disney film, it is not their best, but it is thematically daring, has wonderful animation, one of Disney's most interesting villains and Alan Menken's best score. As far as the Disney sing alongs go, I do prefer Very Merry Christmas Songs, 12 Days of Christmas, Let's Go to the Circus and Zip a Dee Do Dah, but this is fun. The joyous Topsy Turvey and the yearning Out There are featured, and they serve a good purpose. I don't think these two are the best songs in the film, they are Hellfire and Bells of Notre Dame, but I can understand why they weren't used instead, the lyrics are very daring and adult and the melodies while simply incredible aren't what I call catchy, some may be irritated by Topsy Turvey but of all the songs in the film it is by far the most catchy. Of the other Disney songs featured on this video, the one that fits the theme best is Happy Un-Birthday from Alice in Wonderland, quite weird yet catchy. Stand By Me, You've Got a Friend in Me and Streets of Gold are also classics, as is the Dwarfs' Yodel Song. However there is one song that didn't seem to fit as well or was as memorable, and that was Family, I personally would've replaced that with something like Pink Elephants on Parade. Overall, fun and definitely a worthwhile video to have in your collection of Disney films, if you have one that is, I certainly do. 8/10 Bethany Cox
