[14:58] <// J_Daito //> I love Disney!
[14:59] <Mdm_Maestro> What.
[14:59] <// J_Daito //> I love Disney!
[14:59] <Mdm_Maestro> And why, pray tell, does a Mighty General of the Dark Kingdom love Disney?
[14:59] <// J_Daito //> Because they do right by the fluffy creatures of the world!!
[15:00] <Mdm_Maestro> Have I swallowed some kind of hallucinogenic drug, or did I just hear you praising Walt Disney, the sugar-coated candy-cane diabetes in the rotted pancreas of American pop culture, for their kind treatment of fluffy little animals, whom you have in the past referred to as "scurrying, flea ridden fur coats with feet"?
[15:02] <// J_Daito //> So you did!
[15:02] <Mdm_Maestro> That's it, I am obviously in some freakish alternative universe where black is white, good is evil, and you are quite obviously *insane*
[15:03] <// J_Daito //> No! Really, look!

During the filming of the 1958 Disney nature documentary White Wilderness, the film crew induced lemmings into jumping off a cliff and into the sea in order to document their supposedly suicidal behavior.

...

Disney's White Wilderness was filmed in Alberta, Canada, which is not a native habitat for lemmings and has no outlet to the sea. Lemmings were imported for use in the film, purchased from Inuit children by the filmmakers. The Arctic rodents were placed on a snow-covered turntable and filmed from various angles to produce a "migration" sequence; afterwards, the helpless creatures were transported to a cliff overlooking a river and herded into the water.

The lemmings episode of Ducktales was an amusing one as well.
