Disney too!

I found a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament of Esmeralda and her dancing goat Djali sculpted by Ken Crow and based on Disney animation characters from Victor Hugo's The Hunchback of Notre Dame in the Salamanca Antiques Mall in Salamanca, NY, in October 2012. We picked up the companion ornament showing Esmeralda and Phoebus in the Springfield Antique Center in Spingfield, OH, in April 2013.

Finding these two figures piqued my interest and I started reading a bit about this Disney animated feature which I have never seen. Imagine my surprise to discover that Disney Studios had taken that dark story of unreciprocated love and turned it into a tale where Phoebus and Esmeralda live happily ever after, and even Quasimodo, the Hunchback himself, achieves a measure social acceptability. Oh the places that frame drums take us!
