The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Just watched Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame for the first time. Not sure how I missed seeing it the last 14 years. From what I understand, the original novel was seriously, seriously Disneyfied, but taken on its own it was enjoyable. The music is pretty forgetable, and there were the obligatory wise-cracking sidekicks, but the animation of the cathedral made me want to see the real thing, and from a story point of view I really liked the trio of Quasimodo, Esmeralda and Phoebus. Plus some of the lines made me LOL, especially Phoebus':

"Is this the Court of Miracles?"
"Offhand, I'd say it's the Court of Ankle-deep Sewage."

"Why is it, whenever we meet, I end up bleeding?"

From a marketing standpoint, Disney doesn't include Esmeralda in their 'princesses' canon, but she is seriously kick-ass.
