Yeah, Disney took some major liberties with that story.
What's really funny to me is that Garry Bertier actually had long hair and looked like a hippy himself, very much unlike his movie portrayal.
Its almost as if DIsney manufactures stereotypes for the rest of the world to follow...
Looking at you stage 5 clinger prince and your obsession with a chick you met 1 minute. The story of literally every disney movie.
