Top 3 Sassiest Animal Characters (Elizabeth)

What Disney movie is complete without its animal companions? They provide both comic relief and solace for the hero/heroine while spicing the movie up with their fun personalities, which is why today I'm listing the top 3 sassiest animal characters, in no particular order.

3. Abu

Abu is Aladdin's tiny partner-in-crime in Aladdin.

While he has a tendency to be a tad greedy...

He's also generous--though grudgingly so.

Abu is both adorable and feisty, with a personality that's bigger than he is.

2. Pascal

Pascal is Rapunzel's companion in Tangled. Above all, he's protective and cautious.

Not to mention brave! I mean, how many friends do you have that'd be willing to give someone a wet willy on your behalf?

Though he's tiny, he keeps not only Maximus, but Flynn Ryder in line.
Overall, Pascal is there for Rapunzel when she needs him, and he never lets his tiny size get in the way of protecting her.

1. Mushu
And lastly, there's Mushu, the mighty guardian of Mulan in... Mulan. Go figure ;)

Despite his size, Mushu can be terrifying, awe-inspiring...

But he also has a motherly side.
Mushu: [stuffing breakfast into Mulan's mouth] No time to talk. Now remember, it's your first day of trainin', so listen to your teacher and no fightin', play nice with the other kids, unless, of course, one of the other kids wanna fight, then you have to kick the other kid's butt. 

And he's pretty clever when the situation calls for it...

What are your favorite animal sidekicks from movies?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Fun post, Liz! You found some great pictures :) I had to laugh when I saw that you chose this subject, because last week I'd considered doing favorite animal sidekicks from Disney - I'll have to revisit the topic sometime! Abu is one of my favorites, too, he has so much personality and is so loyal but definitely has his faults, as well :)

  2. Great choices, Liz! I love all three of those movies. This was a fun topic.
