Below is text from the Red Nose Day website:
Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21st, 2015. People across the country will come together to have fun and raise funds and awareness. The day’s events will culminate in a three-hour entertainment TV special on NBC featuring the country’s favorite comedians, musicians and Hollywood stars—it’s a show not to be missed!
Money raised during the Red Nose Day campaign goes to the Red Nose Day Fund, which then distributes grants to charities that benefit children and young people in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world. This year, we’ve partnered with twelve amazing nonprofit organizations that work towards Red Nose Day’s goal of keeping children safe, educated and healthy! Learn more about the charities here!
I have noticed how Disney villains always had to be responsible for their own deaths. The good guy can’t straight up kill them. The preferred method has been to have them cause their own fall from some great height. This also conveniently allows them to disappear from sight, so the young audience is spared the ugly after image.
I am happy that YouTube user ChiefBrodyRules has put together this super cut of Disney villain death scenes. (mostly deaths, some are just falls.) While not specifically comedy, there are some funny moments added in, usually provided by the sidekicks. Some villains are a little ridiculous to begin with, so humor works better with them. Others are portrayed as truly fearsome, so it’s more appropriate to keep their deaths serious.

Since today is Charlie Chaplin’s birthday, I’ll repost this little tidbit.
Roberto Begnini is the Italian comedian responsible for the Academy Award winning film “Life is Beautiful”, and one of my favorite films, “Johnny Stechinno”.
According to IMDB, Begnini is quoted as saying:
“Chaplin used his ass better than any other actor. In all his films, his ass is practically the protagonist. For a comic, the ass has incredible importance.”
