Advice from a cartoon princess

A new Web comedy series offers young girls tips about love and life from famous Disney heroines

From the folks who brought you Sassy Gay Friend comes another Web comedy series that pokes fun at famous damsels in distress: "Advice for young girls from a cartoon princess." I know, it sounds too good to be true -- but, as the star of these Second City sketches, Danielle Uhlarik, might backwardly advise, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't!

The latest installment (via Sociological Images) features "Beauty and the Beast's" Belle, who has some tips for young girls who find themselves enamored by scary men who like to beat down doors: "If you find a man who's big and hairy and beastly and it seems like he wants to hurt you, but he's got a lot of money and a really big house, stick it out. You can change him." Some other gems: "The key to love is to tolerate everything" and "The lesson here is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder ... as long as the woman is good-looking."

Check out the clip below and, if you find yourself smitten, there is more wisdom to be enjoyed from "The Little Mermaid" (for example: "Never be comfortable in the body you're given").
