Walt Disney: Story of Menstruation

Posted to Infographics  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

A previously banned Disney cartoon on menstruation. So informative.

[Thanks, Kevin]


  • Probably banned because of the naked woman in the shower.

  • “Banned” usually implies “by government action”. I don’t think the government every prohibited showing this film, so it was never really banned. In fact, the film was shown to millions of high school students.
    I would guess the Disney and Kotex corporations just stopped making it available when it started looking out of date. (Like hundreds of other educational films of previous decades.) Not being available hardly means the film is “banned”.

  • …heh…”flowing” data…

      Ha! Made my day.

    • Aw, you beat me to the punch — I was going to say – “gives a new twist to the term ‘Flowing Data.” ha ha. I guess it was too obvious for me to be the only one to think of it.

    i just txt’d this to my other half.. i told him it was the ‘double lol of the day’ since (a) i’m a data nerd, and (b) ‘flowing’data had this post..

    but then i looked at the actual text.. “it’s funny that *flowing*data leaked it”.

    .. leaked! __HA__.

    “flowingdata .. leaks .. disney menstruation flick”

    it doesnt get much more triple-win than that. :-D
