Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Clip: ‘PAN-dering’ (Plus a Couple More)

I feel like I’ve been sharing a new clip from Disney’s Tangled practically every day. Oh wait, I have. This clip, titled ‘Pan-dering’ for reasons I suspect I shall never learn, actually is the lead-in to the clip posted yesterday, ‘Person In My Closet’ so I’ve re-posted it below the new one so you can re-watch it in sequence.

In short, Rapunzel has a frying pan.

On that happy note, ‘The Smolder’ was also released yesterday but I think I forgot to share it. So I’m left with no choice, here comes ‘The Smolder.’
