IT CAME BACK! It’s a miracle.
Okay, so the second season of Kimmy Schmidt is probably long distant in your minds. But we watched it a few weeks after it came out. And then it took me a while to write this (because I was hoping Hannah would write it again, but alas!) … but better late than never! So here it is: All the Disney references in season two of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
[Warning: spoilers ahead!]
Mickey Mouseing hasn’t been a thing in the community for quite some time.
Now, some have said this is a meta-reference to how half-hour comedies are soundscaped … but I chose to believe that (in Kimmy’s world) the gay community has a Mickey Mouse ball culture, where members try to do their best impression of Mickey Mouse. Yas, queen!
Later in the episode, Jacqueline and Kimmy bond over their mutual … uh … attraction to Disney’s cartoon Robin Hood.
Episode 4: Kimmy Kidnaps Gretchen!
Titus and Mikey go on their first date … and it doesn’t quite go as planned. In fact, it’s a disaster. But the two men bond over their mutual love of The Lion King:
When I first saw [Timon and Pumba], I was like ‘I’m seeing something special here.’ Those two little furry dudes caring for one another, singing songs, farting without judgement. They didn’t fit in with all the other meerkats and warthogs, but they fit in with each other.
Episode 5: Kimmy Gives Up!
Kimmy offers to help her on-again, off-again love interest, Dong, she tries to prove how well they know each other.
He doesn’t get it. (Not like Hans …)
Then, as Kimmy shares her hopeful feelings for their future, Dong puts the breaks on their budding relationship–with a Frozen twist.
Episode 8: Kimmy Goes to a Hotel!
When Kimmy and her on-again, off-again love interest Dong finally make some alone time for themselves, she turns up the … heat? … with a bootleg Olaf nightgown. (Which I think she’s wearing backwards …)
Also in this episode, Titus meets Mikey’s grandmother, who’s a creepy gross Muppet.
Episode 12: Kimmy Sees a Sunset!
In the episode’s opener, Kimmy is recapping the plot of Bambi for her therapist.
This whole episode is sort of difficult for me … because on the one hand, Universal (yuck!). But on the other … well, the people who are shown hanging out at Universal are sort of trashy. So maybe it’s okay?
The most Disneyable part of the episode happens in the first two minutes when, while Titus and Kimmy are driving down to Orlando (without gator insurance), Titus worries about meeting a certain Disney baddie …
What if a sea witch says I can meet Prince Eric if I give her my voice? I’d do it, right?
Um … yes!
Well there you have it! All the Disney references in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Season 2. Given that they manage to include multiple references in almost half of the episodes, I’d bet dollars to donuts we’ll be hearing more in Season 3.
