As children, we just thought they were acting silly--boy were we wrong!

Since Disney is so family-friendly, it’s jarring when something “adult” happens in a Disney movie, and in this case, we’re talking about drinking. As kids, we just thought those characters were acting silly, had horrible coordination, or were having a bad dream (see: Dumbo), but our elders knew better. Those illustrators and writers had quite a sense of humor back in the day, something that they couldn’t get away with easily today. So which characters were actually tipsy? Here are some of Disney’s most drunken characters and moments.

Making a joyful appearance in Fantasia, Bacchus (the Roman god of wine) was drunk, naturally.

Sir Hiss, Sherriff of Nottingham’s right-hand snake, was put in a barrel of ale (okay, thrown), and let’s just say he didn’t stay sober from the incident.

Mr. Smee was always tipsy! And who could blame him? How else do you think he dealt with Captain Hook?

Do you remember that scene in Dumbo with the pink elephants on parade? Yup, Dumbo himself was drunk after the poor fella drank a barrel of Champagne (which he thought was water) to get rid of his hiccups.

Ever wonder where Gaston got all of his confidence and bright ideas? Look no further than the ale that filled his stein daily at the saloon.
