It’s safe to say that the Walt Disney Company has never aired an animated series like Ginger Snaps on any of its platforms.
The first episode of the short-form digital comedy series revolves around a troop of girl scouts trying to exploit someone’s cancer for financial gain, while the second episode is about a girl scout’s encounter with someone she believes to be a pedophile. Then, there’s dialogue exchanges like this:
“Yeah, but wouldn’t it be nice to have the cash for a new pair of shoes without having to do mouth stuff first.”
“Mom should have sold you into white slavery when she had the chance.”
“She should have let you have that sex change when you asked.”
“Ginger Snaps is an animated series about a group of girl scouts that run their troop like a drug cartel,” explains series creator Sono Patel. The nine-episode series was picked up by and launched in mid-June by ABCd, the digital-first media division of Disney’s ABC network, but the series is produced by Warner Bros. Television Group’s Blue Ribbon Content unit.
