One of the most underrated scenes in the Disney library.
For all they got wrong in his adaption, they did a great job with Frollo.
One of the most remarkable things about this sequence compared to other 'villain songs' is the lack of pantomime on display:
The handling of the silk is incredible. I think this is the first villain song that provides 'legitimate' reasons for the main character to BE villainous and not simply a caricature of their voice actor's normal live action role.
Does the very end of the sequence seems to be taken straight from Mother Joan of the Angels?

I agree. They fucked up every single character, got rid of Esmerelda's mother and the reunion scene, the deaths at the end, but this part was awesome. If for nothing else depicting the Catholic church as a bunch of hypocrites through Disney magic.

How did this get through Eisner's Disney?

Haven't really paid attention to any feature-length Disney anything since Tron came out.
I actually worked at a movie theatre where this movie was playing during the summer it came out----in other words, could have seen it FOR FREE in the theatre---and still didn't.
If this clip is anything to go by, I guess it's time to check it out.
This is defiantly one of those "how the hell did they get away with that" cartoons. Just do your best to stomach the comedy relief gargoyles and you're good to go.

I always liked the moral of this story:
Ugly people are not evil, but they have to wait for the direct to video sequel to find love.
One of DIsney's better endeavors

Tony Jay (RIP) can do no wrong, and Quasimodo (Tom Hulce) is the only main character in all of Disney who's a countertenor. The music in this movie was some of their best stuff.
Supposedly they wanted to give it a PG rating for this sequences.

At least he wasn't singing about choir boys...
