Now you can send that poison-pen letter with a smile, using postage from the United States Postal Service that really drives home your point.

Your girlfriend who's always blocking your chance at hooking up? Give her a heads-up and stamp it with Ursula. The chick who's just a little too interested in your dog? Cruella De Vil. Bad apple? The Queen from Snow White. (BTW, what is up with how all the Disney villains are women? Two animals, two guys, and the rest of the stamps are female. Hmmm, Walt.)



“The Postal Service is highlighting the Disney Villains and the pioneering spirit of the Ink and Paint Department that brought many of these characters to life,” says USPS Postmaster General Megan J. Brennan. “These Forever stamps are our way of saying Disney Villains will forever entertain us and serve as a tribute Disney’s artistry and storytelling skill.”

The 10 villains are: the Queen (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), Honest John (Pinocchio), Lady Tremaine (Cinderella), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland) and Captain Hook (Peter Pan), Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), Cruella De Vil (One Hundred and One Dalmatians), Ursula (The Little Mermaid), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast) and Scar (The Lion King).
