The 8 Greatest Disney characters

Mary Poppins (Mary Poppins)

Julie Andrews came out of nowhere in 1964 with the debut of Mary Poppins, and she instantly became our favorite babysitter (er, nanny) of all time.

Jack Sparrow

He may be the worst pirate, but you know him. Jack Sparrow, created by screenwriters Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio and portrayed by Johnny Depp, embodies Disney's edge.

Baymax (Big Hero 6)

Disney does not own Baymax. The Oscar-winning 2014 picture Big Hero 6 is based on a somewhat minor Marvel Comics book, like many Disney films.

Max Goof (A Goofy Movie)

Although Max's beginnings as Goofy's kid go all the way back to 1951, the 1995 film A Goofy Movie marked a significant advancement in his transformation into "Max Goof."

Nick Wilde (Zootopia)

Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman) is an oddball Disney co-protagonist, with an untucked collared shirt, hands in his pockets, and the carefree air of an Office Space extra.

Ursula (The Little Mermaid)

With The Little Mermaid (1989), Disney started a new age of renewed creativity and box office success. Ursula, the evil sea witch, is one of the many colorful characters that live under the sea.

Gaston (Beauty and the Beast)

There should be pictures in the book you give him. Gaston, the big hunter in Beauty and the Beast who pines for Belle, who loves reading, has become a huge internet hit and has real fans.

Jack Skellington

What is this? What is this? Why, it's a horrifyingly beautiful figure having a cute and happy time! Jack Skellington is the main character in the wonderful cartoon movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.
