The above is my cat Kevin’s attempts at blogging! More on him tomorrow.
5: Mickey Mouse
Ah. We can’t forget one very important thing that Walt Disney himself said: It was all started by a mouse. Mickey has truly stood the test of time so well, he is without a doubt a pop culture icon! Created in 1928, two years from now will be his ninetieth birthday and I strongly that he will popular as ever when I’m ninety myself.
4: Winnie The Pooh
Pooh is that loveable teddy bear who is usually a nice memory from your childhood. ‘The end? Can’t we not just go back to page one, and start again?’ That line occupied me for hours on end as a kid. Based off of the author of his book A.A Milne’s son’s teddy bear, this fluffy yellow and red bear is the very picture of innocence and happiness, as is his home woods! That silly old bear.
WARNING: THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991), AND BIG HERO 6.
7: Belle from Beauty And The Beast
Belle is inspiring in that she refuses Gaston’s attempts to get her to marry him and have six or seven sons, she doesn’t want to live up to his sexist expectations for women.
Another amazing thing is when she gives up her own freedom so the beast will let her father go, she’s willing to be a prisoner if it means her father is free, and that is huge.
She also ends up saving the beast at the end of the film, making me love her even more.
I think you’d be pressed to find a character more huggable than Baymax, created as a robot nurse by Hiro’s brother Tadashi he syas the most hilarious of things like ‘I am not fast’ and ‘hairy baby!’ and my personal favourite ‘oh no!’. I have a soft toy of Baymax and it is so cuddly!
Today’s Movie Monday will be slightly different as I wanted to give you my top ten Disney characters. This is not going to include Pixar as I have plans to give them their own separate list in the future.
10: Snow White
Honestly this movie brings back a truck load of nostalgia for me and makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, it’s sort of a comfort movie for me and I watch it straight after a scary movie as let’s be honest, we all turn on the cartoons after one. 🙂 This is the movie that not only started it all for Disney but CHANGED ANIMATION. Snow White’s lucky, I have six cats and they do the exact opposite of what her animal friends from the forest do when cleaning the dwarfs cottage.
Speaking of scary, this iconic villain is just so intriguing and the first time I watched this film, I swear there was a brief moment that I was rooting for her without realizing it, I think she casted a spell on me through the screen! I have a love-hate relationship with Disney Villains, they are often very funny but they do HORRID things to the protagonists! It’s a difficult situation.
From Tangled, Pascal is Rapunzel’s little green/red/blue/yellow/anycolournecessary buddy. He is one of the funniest characters in the whole movie, I laugh every time I watch the scene where Rapunzel says Flynn will never find his bag and he replies with ”It’s in that pot isn’t it”. Rapunzel hits him over the head with a frying pan and Flynn wakes with Pascal’s tongue in his EAR!
