Who are your favorite Disney characters?

I've been thinking lately about Disney and how much I enjoy where I work now. I've started to wonder what do my friends and family think of when they think of Disney? Who are your favorite characters? Here are the ones I love and why...

Favorite Disney Dog:
Dug the Golden Retriever from Up 

How can you not love Dug? "I have just met you and I love you." I broke down and bought a plush of him that speaks. Note: this was a present to myself and I am old enough to have graduated college. Dug is that awesome to me.

Favorite Disney Ensemble:
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and generally all of the Muppets

Disney owns the Muppets so I gotta include this ragtag group of birds, chickens, frogs, bears, and pigs! I'm totally in love with the vision of Jim Henson and there's no bigger embodiment of his dreams than Kermit. I've written much more about my passion for these guys - here and here.

Favorite Disney Alien:
Stitch from Lilo and Stitch

Cute and fluffy! This furry little genetic monster is hilarious and oddly lovable. I have a stuffed animal of him too. I also give him props because I once conned a literature professor into writing a paper about him since our class was about literature and genetics. Score one for me!

Favorite Disney Princess:
Megara from Hercules

Here's a heroine with some gusto and sexy way about her. Her song, "I Won't Say I'm in Love" is one of my all-time favorites. So much so that I staged an entire production of "Hercules" in 10th grade. Evidence and awesomely dorky embarassment below.

Yeah, that's me in the purple, circa 2002. Check out my awesome co-star Harper in his overly muscular tunic. Huzzah.

Favorite Disney Prince:
Prince Naveen from Princess and the Frog

Go scope out Naveen on Dec. 11 when Princess and the Frog opens nationwide! Naveen is by far my favorite Prince- smooth, handsome, and wildly out of touch with reality at times - he works it even as a frog. Don't miss it.

Favorite Duo:
Buzz and Woody from Toy Story

There are a lot of dynamic duos I love between Disney and Pixar, but none is so pitch perfect as Buzz and Woody. The perfection in voice casting is unrivaled - Tom Hanks and Tim Allen nail their relationship completely. I can't wait for Toy Story 3 this summer.

So how bout you? Who are your faves? Share below with a comment!

What about favorite Disney villain?

Favorite Disney Dog: I gotta agree with you about Dug. If only he was a real dog...

Favorite Disney Ensemble: Definitely all the Beauty and the Beast characters. They are all so interesting and funny and have great lines.

Favorite Disney Alien: Gonzo. Technically, he is an alien...right?

Favorite Disney Princess: I guess that would have to be Belle. I think I have a lot in common with her: a big book reader, love to dance the waltz in big pretty dresses, and have a thing for big hairy beasts. :p

Favorite Disney Prince: No princes for me. Although my favorite leading man, er mouse, would have to be Basil the Great Mouse Detective.

My favorite character is definitely Wall-E. The way they animated his movement and could you not.
