Disney’s coolest Sideskicks

Almost everyone has his or her favorite Disney film and characters. From Aladdin to The Little Mermaid –  Ariel –  and the Lion King. Without their buddies – who give these main character good advice – they protagonists would be a lot less interesting. Therefore, I decided to discuss the 10 best sidekicks from Disney animated films!

1. Zazu (The Lion King)

King Mufasa’s marshall Zazu must keep an eye on the young prince Simba. Which is not an easy task for the colourful bird. zazu lion king

Years later, after Simba run away from home, it’s the job of the comical duo Timon and Pumba to guide him the way to adulthood with their motto: Hakuna Matata.timon en pumba

3. Sebastian (The Little Mermaid)

Also Sebastian the crab is used as a babysitter. The youngest daughter of King Triton is Ariel, who is quite wild and does what she wants. It’s up to the musical crab to watch over her. However, Sebastian goes against the wishes of the King and helps Ariel in her mission.

6. Louis (Prinsess and the Frog)

Alligator Louis might not give the best tips to his two frog buddies, but he provides enough nice moments during the mission. While playing on his trumpet in the water, he supports Tiana and Prince Naveen to get their human form back.

8. Maximus (Rapunzel)

In the same film, it takes a while before the horse Maximus joins the team, but towards the end he is the savior of the story. Maximus’ comings and goings, and especially his dog-like character traits, gives us enough reasosn to laugh.
