I've posted my favorites earlier in this thread, but a while ago, when I had rather a lot of free time, I came up with a list of the '100 Greatest' Disney characters, in the spirit of the AFI lists. A character's position on the list depended on critical response, popularity, cultural impact and so on, rather than my personal opinion.

It's not a very well organized list (groups of characters, like the dwarfs and three fairies, are given single places, for example, and a few characters that really should be there aren't) but I'm generally happy with the top 30.

1. Dumbo
2. The Seven Dwarfs
3. Jiminy Cricket
4. The Queen/Witch
5. Bambi
6. The Beast
7. Cruella De Vil
8. Tinkerbell
9. Pinocchio
10. Chernabog
11. The Genie
12. Snow White
13. Balloo
14. Cinderella
15. Mrs. Jumbo
16. Ursula
17. Thumper
18. Ariel
19. Captain Hook
20. Lady Tremaine
21. Belle
22. Maleficent
23. Sebastian
24. Merlin
25. Peter Pan
26. Figaro
27. Tarzan
28. Simba
29. Mulan
30. Timothy Mouse
31. Shere Khan
32. The Tramp
33. Stromboli
34. Jaq and Gus
35. The Cheshire Cat
36. Stitch
37. Baghera
38. Pocahontas
39. Tod
40. Copper
41. Judge Claude Frollo
42. Trusty
43. Madame Medusa
44. Aladdin
45. Lucifer
46. Smee
47. The Mad Hatter
48. Prince John and Sir Hiss
49. King Louie
50. Timon and Pumbaa
51. Lilo
52. Megara
53. The Fairy Godmother
54. The March Hare

Animated films - In no special order (and this is really hard!):

1. Merriweather - I love her attitude
2. The Queen of Hearts - I love her insaneness and her loud brashness. She's like Roseanne of Disney villains.
3. Madam Mim - still my absolute favorite Disney villain
4. Prince Phillip - great voice and I love that strangely evil look he gave the horse when he said, "no carrots."
5. The Cheshire Cat - he's so magnificently strange and eloquently insane
6. Ursula - it's hard to not love her ultra-sexual, overweight diva so much
7. Iago - I think this role was tailor made for Gilbert Gottfried, it fits him like a glove, and I enjoy his performance a lot more than the Genie
8. Archimedes - a wise and funny disciplinerean character
9. Cruella DeVil(le?) - the perfect bitter, nasty old hag villain (like the animated fore-runner version of what would later become famous as the kind of Joan Crawford, Bette Davis, Shelley Winters, Betsy Palmer horror movie hags of live-action cinema)
10. The Magic Mirror - that's one creepy darn mirror!

I know I'm leaving a few out and am later going to wish I'd said something else in one of those places. 10 is so unfair! :lol: :(

I haven't seen this thread in so long! Looking back, I had a few strange choices on my list... :? I have no idea what Penny and Todd are doing there. I think I'll give an updated one:

1. Ursula ~ The Little Mermaid
2. Megara ~ Hercules
3. Jim Hawkins ~ Treasure Planet
4. Lady Tremaine ~ Cinderella
5. Geppetto ~ Pinocchio
6. Merlin ~ The Sword in the Stone
7. Hades ~ Hercules
8. King Triton ~ The Little Mermaid
9. Basil ~ The Great Mouse Detective
10. Cogsworth ~ Beauty and the Beast

Alice, Bagheera, Sebastian, Ariel, Hercules, Cinderella, Grandmother Willow, Merriweather, Rabbit, and Archimedes are other favorites of mine.

Anyway, yeah, 10 is a cruel number. :P But you have to draw the line somewhere.

Listening to most often lately:
Bernadette Peters ~ "Last Midnight" (Into the Woods)
Kimberly Nichole ~ "Creep" (cover)
The Goo Goo Dolls ~ "Iris"

The name Archimedes isn't ringing a bell--what movie is he (I'm assuming it's a he) from? I'm having a Dory moment here...

I don't really have a list of 10; there are so many that I like--including the aforementioned Dory. Recently, I saw "Chicken Little" for the first time (yeah I know it's been out for a few years) and I really love Morkubine Porcupine--he's my favorite character in that movie, although there are lots of other cute ones as well. I also love Thomas O'Malley from "The Aristocats"; and I love Belle, partly because she loves to read (I wish I had a humungous library like they do in the palace in "B&B"--we've got lots of books here, but they're pretty scattered, lol). And I love all the "Cars"--I can't decide which is my favorite, but I really like Flo and Fillmore. I see where someone listed Flounder from "The Little Mermaid"--there's another cutie! Also Tigger and Pumbaa...how I'm ever gonna come up w/a list of just 10, I don't know...I like Mrs. Potts too. I love where Belle meets her for the first time and is looking at eye level and has to look down to see her! My mom was a big fan of Angela Lansbury and Pearl Bailey (Big Mama from "The Fox and the Hound") and I really like both of them also...

Some of the stuff you guys listed, I'm unfamiliar w/. So many cute movies--so little time...

1. Bagheera. I have no idea why, I just find him likable and kinda relatable. I also like a lot Mowgli and Baloo, but if we're talking of putting on a list, Baggy wins.

2. Megara. I'm kinda biased since she reminds me of a dear friend, but rewatching Hercules again I just got all over her. She's charming and flawed, and there are moments where her vulnerability shows that's kinda relatable. For not being the main lead, she leaves an impression on you.

3. Cheshire Cat. He's amusing.

4. Merida. My favorite princess!

5. The Horned King. My favorite villain. If he was in a better movie and perhaps changed a few things here and there he could be one of the big baddies of the studio.

6. Genie. Jafar and Iago are other cool characters from Aladdin (I like them more than Aladdin and Jasmine!)

7. Jack Skellington and Sally. I just find them likable, dunno why. I know people comment they're kinda bland and have little chemistry but the soft atmosphere of the film makes them endearing for me.

8. Aurora. Most of this film's cast are likable characters.

9. Pocahontas. I kinda have issues with her movie, but I do think she's likable.

10. Panchito and Jose. I find them much more fun than Donald!

I also like a lot Hades, Chernabog, Tigger, Miss Bianca, Maleficent, Ursula and Mary Poppins, but it was kinda hard to make a list like this.
