top 100 most popular disney characters of all time


There are several popular characters from Disney. Disney is loved by adults as well as children. Each individual enjoys and can relate to the diverse, fascinating, and wonderful characters. When people think of Disney characters, they typically picture Disney princesses.


However, there are so many variants that any viewer can find something they like. This article is the continuation of the best cartoon characters, but here we have picked Disney cartoon characters only. Characters mentioned in the list are not ranked on popularity or any other basis.


Each of these characters has contributed to the success of their series or movie and hence they are equally important. So, let’s see some of the popular Disney characters in this list.




1. Simba




The celebrity this character has grown into over the years is nothing short of spectacular. Even a person living under a rock may tell who Simba is. This lion cub is the heart of the “The Lion King” 1994 animated feature film.


Fans believe the story, though containing several essential characters, revolves entirely around Simba’s journey from cub to lion. He is shown as a naive little one in the beginning but as time passes, Simba realizes his powers and the responsibilities he has to take over from his father Mufasa, the former king of Pride Rock.


Simba’s younger version was voiced by Jonathan Taylor Thomas and his older one by Matthew Broderick. Thanks to his endearing character arc, outstanding leonine attributes, and relatable shortcomings, Simba has come to occupy a permanent spot in the hearts of fans all over the world.




2. Alice


Alice (disney) (old)


The titular character in the 1951 animated feature film “Alice in Wonderland”, she is one of the most popular and well-known characters anywhere in the world. The deeply symbolic story contained in the original book by Lewis Carroll has breathed life on the cartoon screen.


Alice led a game-changing revolution in animated storytelling. She was voiced by Kathryn Beaumont. From her blue dress to the many bizarre adventures she has had in Wonderland, Alice stands apart as one of the most unforgettable cartoon characters in history.




3. Peter Pan


Peter Pan (disney)


One of the most evergreen cartoon icons in the world, Peter Pan has both a look and name that have come to be synonymous with carefree attitudes, mischief, and rebellion. He was voiced by Bobby Driscoll. Peter Pan is a fairy who never quite gets old.


He lures Wendy and her family to Neverland where they experience the most magical and hair-raising adventure of their lives. Along with the Lost Boys and his tiny pixie friend Tinkerbell, the 1953 “Peter Pan” animated feature film has given the genre plenty of unforgettable moments.




4. Tinkerbell


Tinkerbell (disney)


The sweetest yet sourest little pixie in the realm of cartoons, Tinkerbell is an instantly recognizable fan favourite. She never utters a word, but her expressions and body language define her character more than anything else. She is at once mischievous, cute, empathetic, jealous (of Peter Pan’s fondness for Wendy), and loyal to a fault.


She has helped Peter and the Lost Boys in numerous ways. Tinkerbell has a crush on Peter Pan and it is painfully obvious to the viewers but she never opens up about it clearly to him.



5. Cinderella


Cinderella (disney)


The titular character in the 1950 “Cinderella” animated feature film has become a cult-classic icon who has inspired an entire pop-culture fandom. The ageless story of love, hope, and forbearance that she portrays still holds relevance. Cinderella was originally voiced by Ilene Woods.


She has become a strong symbol of empowerment for little girls and women over the years. Her beauty, patience, and unrelenting belief that something good is waiting for her have made Cinderella a beacon of inspiration for millions all over the world.



6. Fa Mulan


Fa Mulan (disney)


The titular character in the 1998 animated feature film “Mulan” has captured hearts for multiple reasons. Her bravery, love of family, loyalty to her country, and desire to make her path in life without being held down and back by what others expect of her.


Such profound character traits have made Mulan an immensely popular cartoon character. She was voiced by Ming-Na Wen. Everyone has at some point wanted to put their traditions aside and find their inner truth. Mulan does that in such an unabashed manner, making her one of the most relatable and inspiring characters in cartoon history.



7. Roger Rabbit


roger rabbit


The overly anxious, frantic, almost neurotic rabbit at the heart of the 1988 movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is one of the most immediately recognizable characters in toon fandoms all over the world. Even his scream is recognizable. The sheer excellence of this character’s animation design and voice-acting deserves to be celebrated, even emulated.


Roger Rabbit is one among just a handful of cartoon characters who has appeared in a live-action movie that was ahead of its time. A testament to animation during Hollywood’s Golden Age, this bunny brings a world’s worth of entertainment value to the genre and was voiced expertly by Charles Fleischer.



8. Hercules


Hercules (disney)


The main character – originally derived from ancient Greek mythology – is also the titular character in the 1997 animated feature film “Hercules”. He is at once inspiring, innocent, brave, and determined. His will to do the right thing more than helps this character ‘go the distance’.


The younger version was voiced by Josh Keaton and the older by Tate Donovan. Hercules’ animation style and epic journey – especially going up against Hades – has certainly stood the test of time, even in the cartoon world.



9. Mushu




Essentially a tiny red ‘ancestral dragon,’ Mushu brings incomparable comedic value to the 1998 “Mulan” animated feature film. Voiced by the one and only Eddie Murphy, this character has become a fast favourite for being as cowardly as he is quick-talking.


Mushu can also be a little self-absorbed sometimes, but who wouldn’t be if they were a dragon? Mushu is always ready to help Mulan whenever she needs him, and he never fails to play the role of friend and supporter.


He is, after all, Mulan’s family guardian spirit. Though he is sometimes more nuisance than aide, Mushu redeems himself in Mulan’s story and rises to the occasion when most needed.



10. Genie




One of the most unforgettable characters from the 1992 “Aladdin” animated feature film is Genie. Voiced by the late-great Robin Williams, this singular character brings remarkable energy and outstanding humour to the story, to say nothing of his superb magical and musical vibes.


He has such a playful personality and can make anyone laugh. Genie is intent on keeping Aladdin safe, giving him hilarious as well as useful advice to help him woo Jasmine’s hand. In keeping with Middle-Eastern lore, the Genie hails from within a magic lamp that has kept him imprisoned for ages beyond count.


Five thousand, to hear him tell it as he stretches a kink from his back after Aladdin summons him. Genie is, hands down, the best character in the movie, and one of the most popular toons in history.



11.  Dumbo




Dumbo is an odd name given to the strong and courageous elephant calf leading Disney’s 1941 animated film after the same name. Even as a newborn, Dumbo has notably large ears which expose him to derision and mistreatment from others, especially the troupe of circus elephants with whom his mother has been travelling.


Amidst such adversity, Dumbo finds camaraderie in Timothy the mouse, whose support sees him unearthing an impossible untapped potential. Dumbo later unlocks a capacity to soar though the air using his ears. Before long, he captures the spotlight under the circus big top.


As time goes, Dumbo has a heartwarming reunion with his unwaveringly devoted mother, Mrs Jumbo. This little elephant doesn’t say a single word throughout the movie and yet becomes an emblem of fortitude, companionship, and self-love. His character illustrates the ability inside all of us to surmount challenges and realize our aspirations.



12. Jane Porter


Jane Porter (disney)


British explorer, and later Tarzan’s love interest, Jane plays one of the most life-changing roles in the life of the titular character from the hit 1999 animated feature film “Tarzan”. She was voiced by Minnie Driver. Classy, well-mannered, and highly intelligent, Jane comes to study gorillas with her father Archimedes Q. Porter.


Before long, she grows fascinated with Tarzan. Her attempts to guide and teach him something crucial about his origins gradually lead to Jane falling in love with Tarzan’s innocence concerning the real world and his steadfast protectiveness of those he loves.



13. Mufasa


Mufasa (disney)


Simba’s father and one of the most imposing figures in cartoon history, this lion has his own fan club. He was voiced by James Earl Jones, who lent him an air of unmatched majesty in the 1994 “The Lion King” animated feature film.


Mufasa’s nobility, morality, and unflinching decision to protect his son all add to his already golden list of attributes. Mufasa is an iconic character and one of the most popular and loved characters of Disney. Many Disney fans will agree that Mufasa is a great father and a king.


He cares deeply about the people he loves and is selfless at all extremes.



14. Nala


Nala (disney)


Nala is an empowered female lioness with her own view of the world. She is capable of taking her own decisions and does not want anyone telling her what to do with her life. Nala later finds Simba and they both fall in love with each other.


Their personalities match perfectly and all the similarities and dissimilarities they have eventually work out for them. She plays a crucial role in bringing him back to the Pridelands, to reclaim his rightful place in the “The Lion King” (1994) animated feature film.


Her younger version was voiced by Niketa Calame-Harris and her older one by Moira Kelly. Nala’s romantic angle with Simba and her powerful support of his cause both ensure his eventual victory in the film.



15. Winnie the Pooh


Winnie the Pooh (disney)


The star of the show in the 1977 “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” animated short stories, Winnie is a ‘Pooh’ bear. Obsessed with honey and drawn to good company, Winnie earned his place in the hearts of fans and cartoon lovers for being just the most adorable bear you’ll ever meet in the world of animation.


His calm voice and caring nature add to his quality traits. His love of friendship and camaraderie complement his cute character design, including his ‘chonky’ walk.



16. Christopher Robin


Christopher Robin (disney)


The only human of the lot in the 1977 “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” animated short stories, Christopher Robin is best friends with Winnie the Pooh. He later gets close to and befriends the others, going on adventures with them or simply spending quality time together.


Bruce Reitherman, Jon Walksley, and Timothy Turner took turns lending Chris Robin his voice. Cartoon enthusiasts can’t help but love and admire this compassionate and optimistic young boy who sees the world through magical eyes.



17. Tigger


Tigger (disney) (animal)


A tiger named Tigger. It can’t get more recognizable than that. Tigger made his way into people’s hearts and memories when he ‘tail bounced’ into “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” (1977) animated short stories. He was voiced by Paul Winchell.


Tigger is at once sweet, adorable, naïve, loyal, friendly, and funny – none of the things you usually attribute to a ferocious tiger. This contrast is what makes him own a distinct spotlight among Winnie and his friends.



18. Piglet


Piglet (disney) (animal)


Yet another unforgettable character from the animated short story “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” (1977), Piglet is a cute little, um, piglet who is a clever and loyal friend to Pooh, Robin, and the others. He was voiced by John Fiedler.


Piglet brings such fun and warmth to each short story, and his distinctive character design remains memorable. Piglet is adorable but can be scared easily. He suffers from anxiety and is always confused is he wants to do something new or not.



19. Eeyore


Eeyore (disney) (animal)


The most recognizable donkey – even before the one in “Shrek” – is a sad and depressed little one who found joy and meaning in his friends. He was originally voiced by Ralph Wright. Eeyore has not only inspired but educated entire generations of kids and adults alike about depression.


He did it so subtly and memorably that he can’t be refused entry onto a list like this. His journey began in the 1977 “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” animated short stories.



20. Anastasia & Drizella


Anastasia & Drizella


Cinderella’s step-sisters are as imbecilic as they are cruel. Anastasia (voiced by Lucille Bliss) and Drizella (voiced by Rhoda Williams) bring a bucket-load of comic capers, awkward moments, and ‘I’m with Mom on this’ support-character elements to their roles in the 1950 “Cinderella” animated feature film.


They have redefined certain stereotypes based on very real human traits. The moment these two prance onto the screen, audiences immediately realize that some mischief is afoot – pun intended. They never cared about their sister, and always wanted everything they can have and also the things they cannot have.



21. Jaq & Gus


Jaq & Gus


The two mice who have always supported and admired Cinderella are skinny Jaq and portly Gus. Both were voiced by James MacDonald. They provide outstanding comic relief and thrill value to the story contained in the “Cinderella” (1950) animated feature film.


The mice help Cinderella in significant ways. Their efforts pave part of the way for her to go on and achieve her dreams. Along with their voices and outfits, the two mice have become a supremely popular duo in the realm of cartoons.



22. Fairy Godmother


Fairy Godmother


A name-combo that has come to signify magical possibility, it originally sources from a fairy entity who comes into Cinderella’s life to help her realize her dreams in the 1950 “Cinderella” animated feature film. She was voiced by Verna Felton.


There have been numerous discussions and debates on what the Fairy Godmother symbolizes, but one fact remains strong. She is the physical manifestation of Cinderella’s hopes, beliefs, dreams, and desires. She is ‘cartoon proof’ that if you believe in something strongly enough, the universe will help you achieve it.


As enigmatic as she is multi-layered, the Fairy Godmother is one of the most instantly recognizable cartoons in history. Her legacy began in earnest when she uttered the life-changing words, “Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.”



23. Wendy Darling


Wendy Darling (disney)


The oldest of three children, Wendy and her younger brothers John (voiced by Paul Collins) and Michael (voiced by Tommy Luske) are at the heart of the story in 1953 the “Peter Pan” animated feature film. She was voiced by Kathryn Beaumont.


Wendy captures Peter Pan’s heart, but she is more interested in keeping her brothers safe through their many adventures in Neverland. She, in her sweet ways, does not prefer a ‘forever young’ life. Her maturity, wisdom, kindness, and friendship – especially with the Lost Boys, and Tinkerbell on occasion – have made her a favourite among cartoon lovers.



24. Victor, Hugo & Laverne


Victor, Hugo & Laverne (disney)


The gargoyles who come to life and become Quasimodo’s best friends, Victor (voiced by Charles Kimbrough), Hugo (voiced by Jason Alexander), and Laverne (voiced by Mary Wickes) are three of the most recognizable characters in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1996) animated feature film.


The two gents and a lady bring plenty of comic relief as well. When the time comes to be there for Quasimodo and Esmeralda, they risk great self-damage to help them. They look extremely funny and their comedic timing is the best. They provide great waves of laughter to the viewers and keep the movie interesting.



25. Esmeralda


Esmeralda (disney)


A beautiful, confident, and self-dependent gypsy girl, Esmeralda plays a powerful role in “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1996) animated feature film. She goes up against Frollo and fights his sinister schemes against her. She is drawn to Phoebus but sees truth and hope in Quasimodo.


Her singing and dancing abilities are a delight. Demi Moore voiced Esmeralda in the movie. Not only has this female cartoon character become one of the most popular, but she is also lauded for being a symbol of empowerment and a woman’s right to consent.



26. Quasimodo


Quasimodo (disney)


The titular character in the 1996 animated feature film “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, Quasimodo is a hunchback who keeps to himself and tends to the bells of Notre Dame Church. He was voiced by Tom Hulce. Quasimodo is often thought of as a monster for his looks, but the young man is known for his compassionate nature and desire to see more of the world.


He is romantically drawn to Esmeralda. His three best friends are living gargoyles named Hugo, Victor, and Laverne. Quasimodo’s desire for peace, love for the little things in life, and sheer bravery near the end of the film have all made him a genuine cartoon hero.



27. Caterpillar


Caterpillar (dinsey) (animal)


A smoking caterpillar who prides itself on enunciating letters certainly does make for a strange sight. The vibrant Caterpillar in Wonderland helps Alice along with her journey in the “Alice in Wonderland” (1951) animated feature film, but not before confusing her as to what he’s trying to convey.


He was voiced by Richard Haydn. Anytime someone sees the mere sight of a caterpillar smoking out letters, they can’t help but remember this weird feller.



28. Cheshire Cat


Cheshire Cat (disney) (animal)


From his mysterious voice to the smile that remains a while after he has disappeared, there is certainly much more to the Cheshire Cat in the animated feature film “Alice in Wonderland” (1951) than meets the eye. He was voiced by Sterling Holloway.


Providing enigmatic guidance to Alice and also proving a tad funny at times, the Cheshire Cat has become one of the most instantly recognizable cartoon characters, and for all the best reasons. His most famous line still resonates with the book- and cartoon lovers, “We’re all mad here.”



29. White Rabbit


White Rabbit (disney) (animal)


The bunny that always finds himself late, and who initially draws Alice’s attention, the White Rabbit is responsible for unwittingly dragging Alice into a world of strange sights and even stranger experiences in the “Alice in Wonderland” (1951) animated feature film.


He was voiced by Bill Thompson. His sophisticated outfit contrasts with his panicky voice in the film. The White Rabbit also helps Alice on occasion. He is an adorable addition to the movie. He has his little suit and bow tie on, which makes him a cute but gentlemanly rabbit.



30. Phil


Phil (disney)


Phil is the satyr, i.e., half-man half-goat, who trains and guides the titular hero in the 1997 animated feature film “Hercules”. He was voiced by the amazing Danny DeVito. Phil brings superb humour and sass to his role in the film.


Much of what Hercules proves capable of accomplishing won’t have been possible without this little satyr who, in truth, is incredibly old. Phil does not want anyone to bother him. And no one can save themselves from his sarcasm and dry humour.



31. Zeus


Zeus (disney)


The ‘king of the gods’ and original father of Hercules, Zeus brings his own ‘lightning’ personality and presence to bear in the 1997 animated feature film “Hercules”. As patriarchal as he is wise, Zeus understands the importance of a demi-god like his son Hercules earning his place among the deities on Mt.


Olympus. He was voiced by Rip Torn. Zeus’s power is displayed unreservedly during the back-flash sequences when he battled and contained the Titans.



32. Meg


Meg (disney)


The beautiful yet deceptive Meg plays a double game in the “Hercules” (1997) animated feature film. She is forced into it by none other than Hades and soon breaks her shackles with help from Hercules. She was voiced by Susan Egan.


As a romantic love interest, she proves to be as sinuous as she is seductive. Meg fulfills a game-changing role by helping Hercules transcend his limitations and earn his place among the pantheon of gods and goddesses as the rightful son of Zeus.



33. Cave of Wonders


Cave of Wonders (disney)


This one is admittedly not a character in any real sense of the word. But one glance at this cartoon cave designed to look like a large Tiger’s head will set the record straight. The Cave of Wonders can most certainly be classified as one of the most memorable and beautifully illustrated cartoon characters of all time.


Frank Welker lent his versatile voice to the living, breathing, talking Cave, which hides riches and wonders, most especially the Genie in the lamp.



34. Magic Carpet


Magic Carpet (disney)


It might as well be a major character in its own right because the enchanted magic carpet from the 1992 animated feature film “Aladdin” remains an instantly recognizable addition to the roster. Its mime-ish body language is still captivating, and the way it aids Aladdin in numerous ways has only enhanced the evergreen popularity of “Carpet”.


At first sight, it looks like a normal carpet with beautiful designs and embroidery, but a closer look will show you how magical and awesome this carpet is. I mean the iconic “A whole new world” song of Aladdin and Jasmin would be extremely lame if there was no flying magical carpet.



35. Abu


Abu (disney) (animal)


A kleptomaniacal monkey prone to bouts of mischief, Abu is the titular character’s pet in the 1992 “Aladdin” animated feature film. As loyal as he is funny, this little monkey – and his adorable outfit – have both stood the test of time in the eyes of cartoon lovers.


In many ways, Abu is Aladdin’s partner in crime, aiding and abetting the young man in his various schemes to survive. While he does not use words, Abu conveys his mood and emotions with monkey noises – Frank Welker did good work in this regard.


He plays an important role in Aladdin’s life, even accepting to being transformed into an elephant if it meant his friend could realize his goals.



36. Rajah




The large adult Tiger in the 1992 animated feature film “Aladdin” is a character in his own right. Powerful, beautiful, and intensely protective of his pet-owner Jasmine, Rajah is a superb addition to the film. The big cat does not speak in the movie, but his ‘reaction noises’ are notable thanks to Frank Welker’s voice talents.


Rajah also plays a role in helping Aladdin thwart Jafar’s plans to take over the kingdom. Besides, who doesn’t love a Tiger?



37. Jasmine


Jasmine (disney)


Princess Jasmine brought independent thinking and self-confidence to her role in the 1992 animated feature film “Aladdin”. She is clearly against the patriarchy and the law of the land that says a woman cannot rule. Jasmine is more than capable of being Agrabah’s ‘Sultana’, but her future is put in jeopardy by the court vizier Jafar.


She was voiced by Linda Larkin. The way she manoeuvres such perils and shortcomings and remains herself is a testament to her character. Her love for Aladdin holds meaning and elevates Jasmine’s sense of self in many regards.



38. Aladdin


Aladdin (disney)


Not only the character but his name too has become an instantly recognizable trademark in the realm of cartoons. The 1992 animated feature film “Aladdin” features a memorable protagonist whose impoverished lifestyle leads him to accept a lucrative offer from the evil Jafar, who is in disguise at the time.


This takes Aladdin on the adventure of a lifetime. He makes friends he’d never have thought possible, like a magic carpet and an even more magical Genie. He was voiced by Scott Weinger. Despite being a ‘street urchin’, Aladdin ends up saving the kingdom of Agrabah from the ruthless Jafar.


He also sincerely earns the hand of Princess Jasmine who chose him for his humility and focuses on all that is good in the world. Aladdin’s character was inspired by his original namesake in the “1001 Arabian Nights” book, a collection of short stories that were first published in 1885.



39. Kala




The ape mother who adopts Tarzan and makes sure he is accepted by the rest of the pack has certainly earned her place on cartoon lovers’ favorite lists. She originally saves the boy after finding him alone in a treehouse following Sabor’s murder of the child’s parents.


She goes all out to save baby Tarzan from the leopard at great risk to her own life. Glenn Close voiced Kala for the 1999 animated feature film “Tarzan”. Kala’s calmness, gentility, and love are three core reasons why she has become one of the most beloved cartoon characters of all time.



40. Kerchak


Kerchak (disney)


The gruff and tough patriarch of the ape pack, Kerchak is the alpha-male Silverback Gorilla in the 1999 animated feature film “Tarzan” (1999). He is as protective as he is strict, and not altogether accepting of Tarzan’s place in his family.


But he grows to accept the boy as one of his own. Kerchak was voiced by Lance Henriksen. His heroic efforts to keep his family safe from encroaching hunters, coupled with his sheer screen presence, more than add to Kerchak’s popularity as a cartoon character.



41. Tantor


Tantor (disney)


An enormously beloved elephant character from the realm of cartoons, Tantor (both his younger and older versions) has attained immense popularity following the release of the “Tarzan” (1999) animated feature film. Tantor’s easily unnerved nature complements his brave and selfless deeds later on in the movie.


The rust-hued pachyderm was voiced by Wayne Knight. The gentle elephant is one of Tarzan’s besties in the movie and rises to the occasion when his friend needs him most.



42. Terk


Terk (disney)


Part of Tarzan’s adoptive ape pack and family, Terk brings beautiful humour and friendship value to the animated feature film “Tarzan” (1999). She was voiced by Rosie O’Donnell. Terk is at once sassy, witty, bossy, confident, and funny. There’s little wonder how she has become one of the most instantly recognizable characters among cartoon lovers.


She is the best friend anyone could ask for. She is always there to support Tarzan and even warn him whenever she senses some danger.



43. Tarzan


Tarzan (disney)


The main character in the hit 1999 animated feature film “Tarzan” has become popular for multiple reasons. From his heartbreaking childhood – when he lost his parents to Sabor the leopard – to his amazing sense of survival, love for his adoptive family, protective and curious nature, and desire to learn more about himself.


His blooming love for Jane further adds to his popularity. His older version was voiced by Tony Goldwyn and his younger version by Alex D. Linz. Along with great music defining his journey, Tarzan goes through some of the most unforgettable moments in cartoon-character history.



44. Tony & Joe


Tony & Joe (disney) (old)


The two most famous restauranteurs in cartoon history are Tony and Joe, a waiter/owner and chef who play Italian culinary artists in the 1955 animated feature film “Lady and the Tramp”. Tony was voiced by George Givot, and Joe was voiced by Bill Thompson.


More than their camaraderie and kindness to Tramp, their rendition of the original song “Bella Nolte” has set an unforgettable standard for romantic music in cartoon cinema. Their singing accompanies one of the most iconic scenes in the film, the one where Lady and Tramp are eating a plate of spaghetti with meatballs, and they both end up kissing after slurping the same noodle strand.



45. Si & Am


Si & Am (disney) (old)


These two Siamese cats introduce a particularly elegant style of collaborative mischief that has made them famous in cartoon lore. They enjoy causing mayhem for Lady, adding to their antagonistic charm in the “Lady and the Tramp” (1955) animated feature film.


The inimitable Peggy Lee lent her voice to both Si and Am. The cats belong to Aunt Sarah, who is related to Lady’s pet-family Jim and Darling. The sinister vibe these two kitties bring to the movie is so smooth that it simply has to be seen to be appreciated.



46. Pound Dogs


Pound Dogs (disney) (old)


Toughy (a mutt), Peg (a Pekingese), Bull (a Bulldog), Boris (a Russian Wolfhound), Dachsie (a Dachshund), and Pedro (a Chihuahua) are some of the most beloved dogs in the realm of cartoons. They were, respectively, voiced by Dallas McKennon, Peggy Lee (the one and only, whose rendition of “He’s a Tramp” is still a catchy tune), Bill Thompson, Alan Reed, Bill Thompson again, and Dallas McKennon once more.


They are the dogs at the pound in the 1955 animated feature film “Lady and the Tramp”. Each one of them brings their character quirks and singing skills to bear on the plot and helps Tramp and Lady in important ways going forward.



47. Trusty


Trusty (disney) (old)


The bloodhound with a heart of gold, Trusty plays a significant role in the “Lady and the Tramp” (1955) animated feature film. His sharp sense of smell helps the others track down Tramp, thus sparking off a series of events that saves Lady’s future.


He was voiced by Bill Baucom. At first clumsy and a tad absent-minded, Trusty redeems himself in more ways than one. His charm and ‘Southern gentleman’ courtesy have added to the reasons why he has become a favourite among cartoon lovers.



48. Jock


Jock (disney) (old)


Another ‘instant favourite’ from the 1955 animated feature film “Lady and the Tramp”, Jock is an easily irritated Scottish terrier who is close to Lady. Their friendship defines many a moment in the movie. He was voiced by Bill Thompson.


Though gruff, Jock is a softie at heart. All he wants is to see Lady find happiness. Jock is best friends with another dog named Trusty. He can be a little rough on the outside, but his heart is full of love. He just does not show it as much as the audience would love to see.



49. Lady


Lady (disney) (old)


The other core character in the “Lady and the Tramp” (1955) animated feature film, this cocker spaniel breed has become beloved among cartoon lovers for her grace, elegance, and willingness to protect the ones she loves even at great danger to herself.


The adventure that the initially naïve and timid Lady experiences – thanks in large part to Tramp – is a lesson in character development. She comes out of it not rougher but certainly tougher. Barbara Luddy voiced her in the movie. Lady’s compassion complements her love of family, and she finds her special love in Tramp.



50. Tramp


Tramp (disney) (old)


One of the main characters in the 1955 animated feature film “Lady and the Tramp”, this dog has become one of the most popular cartoon characters for his bravery, suave charm, and daring pursuit of adventure. He’s essentially a scruffy mid-sized mutt breed, as his name suggests, with keen street smarts.


Larry Roberts was the voice behind this beloved cartoon dog. Tramp is known to be laid back and thirsty for adventure, always roaming and never desiring to settle. Until he meets Lady, who turns his whole world upside down.



51. Minnie Mouse


Minnie Mouse (disney)


The jam to Mickey’s butter, Minnie and he has always been inseparable as characters and on-screen romantic partners. Minnie in the “Mickey Mouse” (2013-2019) animated TV series was voiced by Russi Taylor. Minnie brings ample emotional value to the show.


She is an adorable little mouse lady, with an extremely cute voice and a bubbly personality. She is always up for a new adventure with her love interest Mickey. She has her best friend Daisy whom she can rely on for some love advice.


Minnie is one of the best Disney characters and a fan favourite.



52. Mickey Mouse


Mickey Mouse (disney)


The mouse that started it all, Mickey certainly has numerous series and films to his name. But the 2013-2019 “Mickey Mouse” animated TV series deserves special mention for being one of the most memorable cartoon shows to capture the life and milestones of the one and only Mickey Mouse and his friends.


He was voiced for the series by Chris Diamantopoulos. The show ran for five seasons. Honourable mentions: Daisy Duck, Clarabelle Cow, Mortimer Mouse, Gubbles, Wadworth Thorndyke the Third, Aardvark Lady (Betty White herself voiced this one), and Boiler. There’s no introduction required for this ultra-popular character, a mouse whose kindness, lovability, and tendency to prioritize his near and dear ones have only made him a shining example of cartoon greatness.



53. Robin Hood


Robin Hood (disney)


One of the earliest feature-length animated movies ever made, the 1973 “Robin Hood” film took a classic literary favourite and made it toony good fun. Its titular character went on to inspire young kids all over the world. Over the years, he also became popular among adults.


The foxy Hood was voiced by Brian Bedford and remains to this day one of the most instantly recognizable cartoon characters. Known for his valour and sharp sense of justice, the charming and agile Robin Hood will not soon be forgotten.



54. Cogsworth


Cogsworth (disney)


The most popular clock in all of cartoon history is Cogsworth, a high-ranking palace staff member who has transformed like everyone else at the castle thanks to the Beast’s selfishness and unwillingness to help a poor soul, who turned out to be a magnificent enchantress.


Cogsworth was voiced by David Ogden Stiers. The character is always cognizant of what caused their unfortunate situation in the first place. His paternal love for the Beast and sympathy for his situation set a wonderful tone in the film.


Cogsworth is also known for his overly-cautious nature and awkward attitude.



55. Lumiere


Lumiere (disney)


Yet another instantly recognizable character, Lumiere is a candelabrum with a French accent. He puts on quite the show in the 1991 animated feature film “Beauty and the Beast”. He is at once funny, witty, emotional, mischievous, charming, showy, and brave.


He was voiced by Jerry Orbach. Lumiere is part of several game-changing moments in the film. His deep wisdom is not always observable owing to his overt showmanship and penchant for humor. His sarcasm and dry humour are one of the reasons to watch the movie.


He can surely make the viewers laugh and become a memorable character in the show.



56. Beast
