This Post is result of Why did Hunchback Fail? The Conclusion of the conclusion of the Disney Version post where I asked people to choose some random Disney movie and pick you favorite character, to see if other protagonists are listed more favorable than Quasimodo. Anyway here are mine (movies came from the list of movie people chose plus one)
Hunchback – Djali or Clopin
Djali about to enjoy a feast Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame
Clopin Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame
I don’t want to choose between them so I won’t. Both of these characters are fun and charming.
Aladdin – Carpet
Much like Djali and Clopin, carpet is fun and charming. Also carpet is smart, laid-back, loyal and handsome (as far a carpets go).
Beauty and the Beast – Lumiere
Lumiere Beauty and the Beast
I had a hard time choosing. I really enjoy Gaston and Le Fou but Lumiere is fun. I say he edges them out by a small margin though I’m not sure why, maybe I like over the top musical numbers.
The Lion King – Rafiki
Rafiki The Lion King
Another Fun character, both smart and silly. Plus I liked it when he hit Simba on the head.
The Emperor’s New Groove -Yzma
Yzma The Emperor’s New Groove
What’s not to love? She’s a great fun villain. Gotta Love Eartha Kit in this. I also love Kronk, they play off each other well but Yzma edges out because she just reveals her schemes.
Bambi – Friend Owl
Friend Owl Bambi
He’s grumpy and smart ^^ . I also like Flower, he’s adorable, soft-spoken, endearing and innocent that is until he gets Twitterpated.
The Sword in the Stone – Mad Madam Mim
Mad Madam Mim The Sword in the Stone
She’s too delightful and Mad, and despite her limited screen time she’s the best part of this movie, that duel was awesome.
Hercules – Hades
I really like Hades as a villain, he cool and calulating, and that makes him fun as Hades ^_~ (bad joke).
101 Dalmatians – PUPPIES!
Puppies 101 Dalmatians
Except for the “badun” (Jasper & Horace), I actually like all the characters, but I’m a dog person so I’m just going to say Puppies ^^ though as a kid Penny and Lucky were my favorites.
Sleeping Beauty – Maleficent
Maleficent Sleeping Beauty
She maybe not be a typical fun character but she is the one having fun being evil and I like that. Plus she’s super stylious.
Apparently I like the fun sidekicks and villains. Not a single protagonist. Perhaps Disney is better at creating villains and side-kicks. Maybe they try to hard to create likable protagoists that in the end they’re not really all that likable or interesting. Considering that people who responded didn’t list any protagonists either.
If you would like to list your Disney favorite characters from any Disney you want, please feel free, maybe you can defend the protagonists, I just ask that you please include the Hunchback.
