I think you’ll agree that sidekicks in Disney movies are really important – they have a certain power to make the audience laugh and mostly have also a very important role in the whole story. I love Olaf. Yes, I haven’t seen the movie yet (Tuesday it is!), but he touched me. A snowman, who loses parts of his body, dreaming about the one thing a snowman should definitely not be dreaming of, summer. However, it shows what we know all along: With Disney anything is possible and we should always pursue our dreams.
Olaf is the newest sidekick and he’ll make a lot of new Disney friends – here are my Top 10 Disney Sidekicks as of now:
10 - Thumper (Bambi)
Isn’t he cute? Wouldn’t you wish to get him as a best friend and teach you how to talk as well? He touches our hearts, doesn’t he?
“If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”
9 - Louis (The Princess and the Frog)
Have you ever wanted to meet a jazz-loving alligator? One who dreams to become one of the greatest trumpet player in the world, yes, even playing for the ‘humans’? Well, I do :).
“Louis would give anything to play jazz with the big boys.”
8 - Flora, Fauna and Merryweather (Sleeping Beauty)
They make you pretty dresses. All right, it’s hard for them to decide on the color, but, who cares? Free, pretty dresses! Above all, they try to save your life!
Merryweather: “We’ll make it blue.”
Flora: “Oh no, dear, pink.”
7 - Tinkerbell (Peter Pan)
Don’t you just adore her? She is a vivid little fairy! Wow, she even made it to be in every Disney-Intro, sprinkling her pixie dust on the castle!
Why there’s no quote of Tinkerbell? Well, during production she did not get to speak, that is why her facial expression is so expressive!
6 - Chip (Beauty and the Beast)
This cute, vivid little cup is always curious about everything! He even took Belle and her father into his heart from the first moment they met.
“Do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?”
5 - Abu (Aladdin)
Aladdins loyal companion and his partner in crime. Oh, and, those of you who already have such an kleptomaniac monkey as a best friend, know that he can get you in quite the trouble sometimes ;).
Never speaks a word, still loving him!
4 - Meeko and Flit (Pocahontas)
These two…. So curious about everything and all the time. Moreover, Meeko… always hungry, even trying to eat a coin ;). But loyal friends to Pocahontas! And that makes them special to me :).
Never speak a word – come on, they’re animals! (Oh right, as if that ever stopped Disney ;)).
3 - Scuttle (The Little Mermaid)
I agree, he may not be the best expert when it comes to humans. How could he, though? He is a seagull ;). Nevertheless, he is a loyal friend to Ariel and keeps on trying to help her achieve the biggest dream in her life, meeting Prince Eric and becoming part of his world!
“Look at ya! Look at ya! There’s something different. Don’t tell me. I got it. It’s your hairdo, right? You’ve been using the dinglehopper, right?”
2 - Jaq and Gus (Cinderella)
Lively Jaq and chubby Gus – trying to get Cinderella to her ball, to meet her prince. Even letting the Fairy Godmother transform them into horses for Cinderella’s carriage! If that is not real friendship, then I can’t help you ;)
Jaq: [singing] “Cinderelly, Cinderelly.”
Gus: “Duh, duh, duh… Happy Birthday!”
1 - Olaf (Frozen)
Yes, of course he made the list! Look at him, clinging to his nose, trying to not lose body parts – always so clumsy, but cute! Dreaming about summer… Would you tell him the truth? Would you dare destroy this little snowman’s dream?
“Hi, everyone. I’m Olaf. And I like warm hugs!”

Diane Disney Miller was the only biological daughter of cartoonist Walt Disney and one of the inspirations for the happiest place on earth, Disneyland. Sadly, after she suffered a fall in autumn, she has not recovered and died at the age of 79 in her home in Napa, Northern California. She was the oldest and only biological daughter of Lillian and Walt Disney, her adopted sister, Sharon Mae, died 20 years ago.
Diane Disney Miller has tirelessly worked to preserve her father’s legacy. She supported the construction of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, which has been designed by architect Frank Gehry and was inaugurated in 2003 and also founded the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, the first museum which was dedicated to the life and work of Walt Disney, opened in 2009. Her husband, Ron W. Miller was CEO of the Walt Disney Company until 1984.
Disney president and CEO Bob Iger:
“As the beloved daughter of Walt Disney and one of his inspirations for creating Disneyland, she holds a special place in the history of the Walt Disney Company and in the hearts of fans everywhere. She will be remembered for her grace and generosity and tireless work to preserve her father’s legacy, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.”
