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)
2. Timon and Pumbaa (The Lion King)
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.
4. Genie (Aladdin)
The blue Genie from the magical lamp helps the simple young Aladdin in his quest to win the heart of Princess Jasmine. His advice is simple: Tell her the truth!
5. Lumiere and Cogsworth (Beauty and the Beast)
Without Lumiere and Cogsworth, the beast and all the other magical creature in the castle would still be caught in their magical body. This comcal duo hepls the beast to win Belle’s heart and so become human again.
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.
7. Pascal (Rapunzel)
Pascal the chameleon, and for a long time the only friend of Rapunzel, does not say much. But through his facial expressions Pascal provides Rapunzel of good advice. He helps her with intruders.
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.
9. Timothy (Dumbo)
The baby elephant Jumbo – who gets called Dumbo becase of his giant ears – is all alone and misses his mother. Fortunately there is Timothy the mouse. Timothy helps Dumbo the become the main act of the circus by teaching him how to fly and therefore take revenge on the mean elephants.
10. Thumper (Bambi)
All animals need friends, so even young deer Bambi. The rabbit Thumper is the first one to meet Bambi and become his friend. Together they experience many adventures in both winter and spring.
