A cartoon episode on Disney+, aimed at pre-school students, teaches children about equity, explaining that everyone deserves equal outcomes, even if they don’t receive the same treatment.

A minute and a half long, the “Learn about Fairness” episode of “Ready For Preschool” by Disney Junior, explains the concepts of equality and equity using the classic Disney characters, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and Goofy. The episode explains that when equality isn’t enough to make things fair, equity is needed, noting that some may get help while others don’t.

The episode begins with the four characters on a picnic, explaining that in order for things to be fun, they must be equal. Mickey gives his friends the same amount of food for lunch, explaining that equality is when everyone gets the same portions

“Some of the time equality just doesn’t make things fair,” the episode says. “Like when we are at the orchard, picking apples we can share. While some of us are short, some of us are tall, so I might need a big boost, while you need none at all. When everybody gets whatever help they need to succeed, that’s called equity.”

In the next scene, Minnie, Goofy and Pluto all stand on boxes under a tree to pick apples, though Pluto is unable to reach. Goofy then gives his box to Pluto, and the show explains that in order for everyone to have what is fair, some may get help while others don’t.

Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Mickey then each have a basket of apples, however, Mickey has less than Minnie, the episode shows. Minnie gives some of her apples to Mickey so they have the same amount because “fair equals fun.”

In the final scene, all the characters are riding bikes, but Pluto is pushing his bike and cannot keep up. Goofy attaches a wagon to the back of his bike to pull Pluto instead. “When we take a ride on our bikes, equity will make it right,” the show stated. “Because fair, fair, fair, equals fun.”

In 2022, Disney decided to stop using the phrases “boys and girls” or “ladies and gentlemen” in an effort to be more inclusive. Later in the year, the corporation shut down iconic “Splash Mountain” attraction, claiming it promotes “racial stereotypes.”

Disney has recently come under fire after claiming that Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Parental Rights in Education bill, which prohibits lessons on gender identity and sexual orientation in Pre-K-12 classrooms, was not inclusive enough of the LBGTQ community. Since then DeSantis has moved to limit the corporation’s self-governing privileges in the state.

Disney did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.

In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.

How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
