Have you ever heard the F-word used in a Disney movie? How about Disney’s latest family film, Enchanted? Watch the clip below, it happens when the bus driver exits the bus. Listen closely. Someone with a new york accent appears to shout the F-word.
I assure you, this is not something we edited into the film clip. This official clip was sent to us from the mouse house. The same clip even appears on Yahoo Movies! And this same clip appears on the big screen in theaters around the world.
Watch/listen below. Do you hear it? After you watch the clip, please continue reading for a must read follow-up explanation…

So did you hear it? Isn’t that crazy?
How sure are you?
This is another case of “It’s Alive!”/”It’s a Lion!” (if you get the reference, you get 100 geek points), because the New Yorker in question doesn’t actually say:
“Get the F*CK out of there!”
Listen again, one more time, and you will find that he actually says
“Get that BUS out of there”.
I’m sure some of the parents who attended this film during the holiday weekend may have been shocked at what they thought they heard. But in reality, what they heard was just the word “Bus.”
And I’m sure in the years to come, like most of the Disney Urban Legends, this will be told from friend to friend as a little known fact. I’m still surprised that Disney didn’t notice the similarity during the post production process. I’m sure they would like to avoid such misunderstandings. I’m betting they do an audio edit for the home video release.
