The 1940’s were still a time of racial ignorance, so a character like Sunflower didn’t really turn any heads. As time went on and the world grew slightly more accepting of varying races, the insensitive, racist stereotype that this Fantasia protagonist fulfilled was realized. 28 years after the film’s release, the black Centaurette was removed from the film entirely, with Disney hoping people would forget. In The Pastoral Symphony segment, Sunflower is seen tending to her fellow, lighter-skinned Centaurettes, assisting them in grooming. Although the young character did actually make it past the drawing board, today, has been wiped entirely from all things Disney.
