Children and Family Films : Disney Sidekicks

Disney Sidekicks

Both good guys and bad guys in Disney movies often have sidekicks, characters who exist mainly as a sort of shadow/helper/commentator to the main character. Which do you think are the cutest/most annoying/most effective? My favourite evil sidekicks are the jackals in The Lion King, especially as they end up getting their own back on their master. Cutest sidekick: Abu? Most annoying sidekick: Mushu.

Re: Disney Sidekicks

My favourite sidekicks are the mice in Cinderella. Of more recent features, I liked Lucky Jack in Home on the Range.

On the villainous side, Cruella's hirlings Horace and Jasper in One Hundred and One Dalmatians and Fidget, who toiled for Professor Ratigan in The Great Mouse Detective stand out.

I agree that Mushu was annoying. I think it's a regrettable trend in sidekicks. Irritation is being confused with humour.

Oh! They are cute aren't they?
It was Timon's character that drew me to the pair
