Suchismita-Updated Jan 22, 2023
Disney characters have been much loved and famous for generations now. While every character, irrespective of whether it was a hero or a villain, has received an equal amount of love, there's no denying that the chubby ones have always managed to hold a special place in our hearts.
Whether it was the adorable protagonist, the goofy second protagonist, or the angry villain, trying to leave a negative impact but making you fall for their naivety, the chubby ones are always different yet most special and unique.
And that's why today's list is about 50 of Disney's most popular thick characters. Trust me when I say, you’ll love this one.
So, read on!
50. Fairy Godmother (Cinderella)
Cinderella’s fairy godmother wasn’t one of the protagonists in Disney’s 1950 classic, but she did play a pivotal role in the movie.
She was the embodiment of Cinderella’s hopes (as was confirmed by her) and she defined comfort, as quite typical of a loving grandmother.
She was extremely kind and devoted her life to making dreams a reality for those who were pure-hearted and noble.
And, she did this act by chanting a magical phrase using her magic wand, saying; ‘bibbidi-bobbidi-boo.’
49. The Matchmaker (Mulan)
Disney's 1998 movie Mulan, had the Matchmaker make a quick brief appearance for a critical scene where the character of Mulan as a young woman with good intentions but unable to fit into society, is set up.
The Matchmaker is seen to be a traditional perfectionist who expects equal perfection from the Brides-to-be.
She's extremely rude and unreasonable, calling Mulan a disgrace and unfit to be a real bride.
Even though she wasn't the main villain, she was there to foil Mulan's very existence and confidence.
48. The Cheshire Cat (Alice in Wonderland)
The charming and chubby Cheshire cat from Disney’s classic, Alice in Wonderland (1951), is always seen singing songs, grinning, being goofy, creating magic, and teasing all the evil queens.
He’s extremely cool and belongs to the Duchess. He keeps appearing and disappearing as and when he feels like it and is also the only character that actually listens to all that Alice has to say and provides her with valuable insights into how things work in Wonderland, getting her familiarised with the rules there.
While the cat has seen different renditions throughout different mediums, the chubby grinning one from the 1951 version seems to have sat well with the original image of how Lewis Caroll envisioned him to be.
47. The Three Good Fairies (Sleeping Beauty)
The three good fairies, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather from Disney’s 1959 classic are Sleeping Beauty Princess Aurora's fairy godmothers as well as guardian angels, who appear at her christening to present her with precious gifts.
All three of them have unique characteristics, with Flora being chubby, and grey-haired with a sweet, caring, and motherly nature.
Fauna who’s also chubby (but lesser of the three) is thoughtful and wise. Merryweather on the other hand is also adorably plump with a sweet, caring, and cheerful disposition.
All three of them hold great powers and were responsible for altering the evil witch Maleficent's curse on Aurora from death to a deep sleep from which she could be awakened through true love's kiss.
46. Rolly (101 Dalmatians)
Dogs and food are synonymous, which is why Rolly from 101 Dalmatians too was no different.
He provided light comedy in moments of serious peril and can well be considered one of the more realistic renditions of a pup among those in the litter.
Disney’s Rolly is like a poster pup who’s unapologetically all about food and is willing to fight against everything (including possible food shaming and kidnapping!), one meaty sandwich at a time!
45. Baloo (The Jungle Book)
Baloo was the deuteragonist of Disney's 1967 cult favorite, The Jungle Book. He's portrayed as a fun-loving, easy-going, goofy ol' sloth beat who's extremely good-natured and also happens to become the best friend of the protagonist of the film; the 'man-cub' Mowgli.
He loves spending time with Mowgli, and enjoys swaying to some good jazz, swimming, back scratches, and partying.
And similar to every lazy individual, he doesn't really enjoy working and has excess responsibilities.
Nonetheless, he'd go to any lengths to ensure Mowgli's safe and well-protected always.
44. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head (Toy Story)
Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head were a couple of toy potato heads (based on Playskool’s famous toy), who were a madly in-love mushy couple and supporting characters in Disney’s Toy Story.
They can well be defined as two of the most diverse and body-positive characters there were, with constantly changing body features (similar to real people).
However, they’ve got consistent personalities and are always very helpful, as is seen with the little green men whose lives they save, due to which they become forever indebted to them.
43. Little Green Men (Toy Story)
The adorable squeeze toy aliens (also known as Little Green Men or LGMs) were another set of supporting characters in Toy Story.
While their roles were quite small in the first, second, and fourth films, the third film had them play a pivotal role.
The adorable-looking aliens are mostly known for their near-worship of 'The Claw' (from the game they were part of) which they believe was capable of taking them to an unknown new world and for speaking simultaneously always.
They're also mostly clueless about all that's happening and get in trouble quite a bit.
42. Heimlich (A Bug’s Life)
Heimlich is the chubby old caterpillar from Disney’s 1998 animated feature, A Bug’s Life. He’s an absolute bundle of joy although he’s seen to be extremely unhappy about his appearance (as he can’t wait to turn into a butterfly) throughout the film.
At the end of the film, everyone expects him to emerge from the cocoon as a slender-looking beautiful moth, but instead, he leaves everyone surprised by coming out exactly the same, simply with the addition of a tiny pair of wings.
41. Fairy Mary (Disney Fairies)
Fairy Mary is the head of all the Tinker fairies. She’s a stout and fussy Tinker who’s extremely organized and takes extreme pride in her identity.
While fairy Mary loves listening to stories, she tends to get highly anxious in intense situations and prefers counting by herself to feel calm again.
She's a motherly figure who's always there to guide others but wouldn't mind being firm and strict if and when necessary.
She holds high hopes for Tinker Bell but get's highly disappointed when she finds out that Tinker Bell isn't happy with her talent.
40. The Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland)
The Queen of Hearts was the main antagonist in Disney's 1951 animated film Alice in Wonderland.
She's seen to be a psychotic tyrant whose nature includes (but isn't limited to) consistent mood swings, severe temper tantrums, impatience, and egotism.
In the animated feature, her character keeps swerving between being fond of Alice one minute and demanding her to be beheaded the very next.
The Queen looks like a complete polar opposite of Alice, with thick arms, an ape-like face, untamed disheveled hair, and fat.
39. Stinky Pete the Prospector (Toy Story 2)
Stinky Pete was one of the primary antagonists in Disney’s Toy Story 2. He isn't your typical villain but is often misunderstood because of how grumpy and mean he is (mostly because he's still hurting from past experiences of never having experienced a child's love).
He was a prospector doll who was a part of Woody's Roundup TV show along with Jessie, Bullseye, and Sheriff Woody.
However, he can still be considered a villain because his main aim was to ensure that Woody and Andy don't get reunited.
38. Flounder (The Little Mermaid)
Flounder was one of the main characters in Disney's 1989 animated feature, The Little Mermaid.
He is seen as Ariel's best friend and despite being timid and cowardly, often embarks on crazy adventures with her.
Even though he's named after the Flounder fish, he isn't so but is simply a tropical yellow fish having teal stripes.
He comes from a large family with multiple siblings and according to 'The Evil Manta' (episode 9 of The Little Mermaid animated series) his real name is Guppy Number 35.
Flounder is extremely loyal to Ariel and is also highly protective of her and always stands up for her, come what may.
37. Al McWhiggin (Toy Story 2)
The other antagonist in Disney’s Toy Story 2, Al McWhiggin is an extremely greedy toy collector who is obsessed with collecting rare toys in exchange for money.
Al is extremely greedy but also really funny. Although he’s obsessed with toys, he’s very careful with them and never breaks them or manhandles them in any way.
Instead, he builds collections and then ends up selling them for large amounts of money.
In fact, he doesn’t mind committing petty crimes as well, to get things to go according to his plan.
36. Bernard (The Rescuers)
Bernard is the male protagonist of Disney’s 1977 animated feature, The Rescuers. He is a pudgy-looking young mouse whose initial job was that of a janitor for the Rescue Aid Society, the mouse version of the prestigious United Nations.

Bernard also is the partner and love interest of Miss Bianca whom he eventually marries and they both become parents to Fuschia and Mischa Roberts.
35. Gus (Cinderella)
Another adorable Disney rodent, Gus was the chubby little mouse that was rescued by Cinderella and went on to become her loyal sidekick in Disney's 1950 animated feature, Cinderella.
He helps her steal the materials needed to finish her ball gown. Gus also manages to transform himself into a horse for a short while, thus helping Cinderella's carriage to the ball.
The climax of the movie sees Gus and Jaq steal keys to Cinderella's locked room and help her try on the shoe and eventually reunite with her Prince Charming.
Gus follows Cinderella everywhere and goes along with her to the castle, in the final scene.
34. LeFou (Beauty and the Beast)
Le Fou was Gaston LeGume’s man-Friday in Disney’s 1991 animated feature, Beauty and the Beast.
While he looks up to Gaston, he’s mostly put down by him, even though LeFou is always egging him on, supporting and encouraging him.
He’s mistreated by Gaston who asks LeFou to follow him to the castle to take down the Beast.
However, once there, LeFou ends up getting injured during the battle. Nonetheless, the penultimate scene of the movie shows that LeFou is still alive and okay.

He was the ruler of Agrabah and also the father of Princess Jasmine. He is seen to be obsessed with finding a suitable match for his daughter and invites princes from all over the kingdom to take her hand and eventually the throne.

Clawhauser has an extremely pleasant and bubbly personality and he simply idolizes Gazelle. He’s also extremely social and has a friendly demeanor.
He’s a foodie as well and is mostly seen munching on food, as his job doesn’t require much physical activity.
31. Hook Hand (Tangled)
Hook Hand is a supporting character in Disney’s 2010 animated feature, Tangled. While he is initially portrayed to be someone quite evil and always on the lookout to harm Rapunzel, that image of him eventually changes.
Hook Hand carries a ton of armor around him and has a hook for a hand.
He has a soft side to him, something that he confesses when he says that he’d always dreamt of becoming a pianist and supports Rapunzel in her escape plan.
Hook Hand is seen as a funny guy mostly because his appearance is a complete contrast to his nature and behavior.
30. Mrs. Potts (Beauty and the Beast)
Mrs. Potts is an adorable supporting character in Disney’s 1991 animated feature, Beauty and the Beast.
She’s quite similar to Cinderella’s fairy godmother in the sense that she too acts as Belle’s guardian when she’s being held captive in the Beast’s castle.
She happens to be the castle’s head housekeeper who had been transformed into an enchanted teapot after being cursed by the Enchantress.
However, we are also shown her true self (before being cursed to be a teapot) and her charming personality remains consistent, irrespective of the form or shape she’s in!

He's also extremely responsible, even though he was initially painted as an antagonist in the film.
Maui is an extremely valuable asset to Moana and helps guide her every step of the way.
Being a shape-shifting demigod, his childhood tragedy is what makes him somewhat human and that's what makes everyone fall in love with him.
Also, his solo song 'You're Welcome' is one of Disney's most catchy jams over the years, having insane popularity even today.
27. Eeyore (Winnie the Pooh)
Eeyore is an adorable but pessimistic old stuffed donkey that belonged to Christopher Robin in Disney's 1966 theatrical, Winnie the Pooh.
He's extremely grumpy and holds a very gloomy outlook on life but that's what melts the audience's heart for him.

He's got a typical trademark sad voice and is always there to help his friends whenever the need arises.
26. Pumba (The Lion King)

Stromboli is the second antagonist in Disney’s 1940 animated feature, Pinocchio. He happens to be a showman and puppeteer who has a crazy ambition of making a lot of money and doesn’t mind having it at the expense of others.
He carries himself with a jovial veneer and has a terrible short temper, making him well known for cursing when slightly agitated.
Stromboli is also highly averse to humiliation, as is noticed when Pinocchio stumbles down the stairs when on stage.
However, he tends to show an occasional soft, humane and patient side as well, which eventually turns out to be a facade he puts up to hide his true villainous self.
23. Madam Mim (The Sword in the Stone)
Madam Mim (often referred to as Mad Madam Mim) was the main antagonist in Disney’s 1963 full-length animated feature, The Sword in the Stone.
She happens to be Merlin’s biggest rival as is made evident through the non-cordial terms shared between them.

22. Governor Ratcliffe (Pocahontas)
Governor Ratcliffe is the main villain in Disney's 1995 animated feature, Pocahontas. He is extremely power-hungry, pompous, and exceedingly greedy, courtesy of his insatiable hunger for gold as he believes that will truly help him become an extremely wealthy man.
He's also extremely xenophobic, cruel, racist, and heartless. In fact, he is a well-aware person, one who knows that he's never really been popular with people.
In simple words, he's the worst kind of villain there is one that you simply can't love or feel fond of.

He was a complete contrast to his successors and predecessors, even though he showed similar arrogant and megalomaniacal traits.
He's merciless to even the most defenseless individuals and is often seen joking and making fun of death after having killed his enemies in cold blood or simply at random.
Simply put, he's the kind of villain you'd hope never existed in reality.

16. Bashful (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)

Happy is also the chubbiest of all the dwarfs and is the bubbliest and sweetest dwarf there is.
14. Sneezy (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs)
The fourth and last dwarf in our list, Sneezy was most probably named so because of his characteristic sneeze which Walt Disney suggested, was because of hay fever.
He perpetually has a stuffy nose which is why his tone is somewhat similar. Sneezy erupts into uncountable bouts of sneezing at any given point in time.
