Z is for Zazu.

Zazu is that annoying little bird from The Lion King. He's a good guard bird, but he talks too much.

X is for....

Actually, I couldn't come up with anything for X or Y. See you on Thursday for Z!

W is for Grandmother Willow.

I love Grandmother Willow. She's so wise and gives such great advice. Bonus: She's a talking tree! How much better can you get than that?

V is for vultures.

These vultures from "Snow White" are incredibly creepy. They are seen near the end of the movie.

U is for Ursula

Continuing on with the Little Mermaid track from yesterday, Ursula is the perfect disney villain. She's got some really creepy sidekicks, too- Flotsam and Jetsam. In my opinion, the best part of Ursula is her crystal ball that she uses to see the outside world. I wish I had one of those!

T is for Triton.

Triton is awesome. He's a really good father, and he's a MERMAN! He also has some amazing powers with that awesome trident of his. The only bad aspect of Triton is his temper. He destroys Ariel's grotto almost immediately when he finds out she rescued Eric.

S is for Sleepy and Snow White.

S is for Sleepy. Sleepy reminds me of myself because I love to sleep! I'm a college student, and sleep is a luxury for me. I love taking naps, and can sleep up to 3 or 4 hours at a time during one. I couldn't find a clip os Sleepy, as they are all copyrighted by Disney.

S is for Snow White. Snow White is one of the youngest Disney Princesses- 14 years old. She is a great character in that she's super cute and caring, but she's also extremely gullible. Personally, if an old hag were to offer me an apple, I'd think she were crazy. The animals give the Princess an obvious hint when they knock the apple out of the Queen's hands, but she is too naieve to take a hint!

R is for Roger.

Roger from 101 Dalmations is often over looked. He's loyal to his family and is very good at standing up to Cruella. Here's a clip of him:

Q is for the Evil Queen.

It wouldn't be right to NOT include this villain. She's always scared me, and I'm still afraid of her today! I am convinced that this lady is completely psychologically unstable. I'm in college and minoring in Psychology, so I tend to unconsciously analyze people. Anyway, she's unstable because she wants to be the fairest of them all, yet turns herself into an ugly old hag! She also has no mercy for anyone but herself, and she will do anything to be prettier than anyone else. Let me also say that this lady freaks me out as the old hag. She has a scary laugh, and she always makes exaggerated facial expressions. 

Here's a clip of her as the queen: 

And here's the clip of her as the old hag. You'll understand what I mean about the facial expressions:

P is for Poor Unfortunate Souls and Pat Carroll!

P is for Poor Unfortunate Souls. This is my favorite Disney villain song. Ursula seems like she's caring in the beginning of it, but then it takes a dark turn in the middle. By the end, Ursula's wickedness is quite obvious.

P is also for Pat Carroll, who voiced Ursula. She's 87, but she's stil hilarious!! Fun fact: Pat and I share a birthday- May 5th! Obviously different years. I'm not that old. ;)

O is for Octavius.

Gus's real name is Octavius. He's that fat little mouse from Cinderella. He's adorable, but a bit naieve. Jaq always has to protect him from Lucifer.

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

N is for Nanny.

Nanny's a character in 101 Dalmations. You'll be seeing more characters from that movie in the coming days. Nanny is a cute old lady, but she's also important in protecting the dalmations from Cruella, Horace, and Jasper. She's good at standing up to Cruella and her sidekicks.

M is for Maleficient, Mickey, and Morgan!!

M is for Maleficient. She's got to be my favorite disney villain. She has anger management issues for sure, but that only contributes to her awesomeness! She's also a badass because she has a way of faking emotions and then suddenly getting revenge on her enemies. In the scene where she finds out she's not wanted, she says "What an awkward situation". She pretends to be offended, and suddenly gets revenge by placing the infamous curse upon Aurora. And those horns- wicked awesome!!

Maleficient represents pure evil. She's the self-proclaimed "Mistress of all evil" and is known to smile and cackle when her enemies are in pain.  Her smile is very devious, which implies that she takes pleasure in knowing that she causes pain.

                                    M is for Mickey.

Mickey's the mouse that started it all. I've always loved him, and this January I had the privilege of meeting talking Mickey at Disney's Magic Kingdom! It was amazing, and I even have a photo below. He was adorable, and he gives great hugs!

M is for Morgan (that's me!). I wanted to use this opportunity to tell you a little more about myself. I'm 18, and will be 19 on May 5th! I am currently a freshman at Loyola Chicago studying social work. In my spare time (what spare time?!), I enjoy reading, sleeping, and cooking. I've never been able to choose a favorite Disney movie because I love them all! But I do have a lot of favorite Disney characters, all of whom are mentioned in this challenge.

L is for Lumiere.

This is by far my absolute favorite character (besides Chip!) in Beauty and the Beast. I love his accent. He's also really romantic, and he has a romantic relationship going on with the mop. I don't know her name. Lumiere also is in love with Belle at the beginnin of the movie. When she walks in, she kisses Belle's hands for about 5 minutes, until Clocksworth tells him to stop I enjoyed his performance in 'Be Our Guest'! Oh, if all candles could talk...

Here's a picture of me holding a Lumiere candle. We didn't buy it because it was $40, but I thought this picture was adorable!

Enjoy this clip of Lumiere:

K is for Kings.

I had a hard time coming up with a character for K. There aren't a ton for this letter, so I thought it'd be kind of cool to just blog about some of the classic Disney Kings. I've included video clips of my favorite kings below. Tomorrow's post is one about one of my favorite Disney characters that just happens to be non-human! You'll have to check back tomorrow and see!

J is for Jaq.

Jaq is the cute little mouse from Cinderella. He's best friend with Gus and always says "Zuk Zuk, Cinderelly. Zuk Zuk". He wears a red jacket and hat.

Here's a clip of THE best scene of the movie! Jaq happens to have a big part here.

I is for....

This scene is from Sleeping Beauty where Maleficent is yelling at her goons for not finding Aurora.

H is for Happy.

Happy is the polar opposite of Grumpy, but oddly enough, they never quarrel at all in Snow White! Happy's friends with Dopey, and the two engage in antics together. But Happy sort of keeps Dopey in check. There's that one scene where Dopey is looking under Happy's beard to see if the Queen was hiding under there, and Happy bashed him over the head as if to say, "What are you doing?!"

Happy also gives a really cute performance in "The Silly Song"!

This is the clip where Snow White meets the dwarfs and Happy hits Dopey upside the head.

And here is "The Silly Song" and Happy's performance!

G is for Grumpy.

G is for Grumpy from Snow White. It's really cool to see how the friendship between Grumpy and Snow White develops over the course of the movie. At the beginning, Grumpy doesn't have anything to do with Snow White. However, at the end, he actually SMILES at her when they're saying goodbye to each other! In this clip, you can see exactly what I mean.

F is for Flora and Fauna.

I like these two good fairies in Sleeping Beauty. They're two old ladies, but they're really adorable and good-hearted. Flora is a little bossy, but I like her anyway. And, for the record, the dress should be pink!  The following clip is my favorite scene in this movie:

E is for Eric

I love Eric. He's incredibly handsome, and he is my favorite Disney Prince! I love the scene where Eric, Ariel, and Grimsby are eating dinner, and Ariel starts brushing her hair with the fork! I have a picture of myself with a dinglehopper hairbrush (below).

Here's a scene of Eric and Ariel:

D is for Dopey and Dory (and a special guest!)

Wow, we have 2 characters and a special guest today! The special guest is revealed at the bottom of this post, but I highly  encourage you to read all the way through to the end. You won't get the connection otherwise!

D is for Dopey.

Dopey has to be my all time favorite Disney Character.  He's so cute and funny and I just love him so much! I've always wondered how old he is, though, because he's the only dwarf without a beard! Dopey seems to be younger than all the other dwarfs because he acts more like a young person than an adult, like all the other dwarfs do.

Here's a good clip of Dopey.

D is for Dory!

Dory from 'Finding Nemo' is an interesting fish. She has short-term memory loss, and she's constantly driving Marlin crazy! Just keep swimming! 

And finally, our special guest..............

D is for......

Ellen DeGeneres!

I thought Ellen would be perfect for this post because she voices Dory! Ellen has to be one of my favorite celebrities (besides Sofia Vergara!), and she is hilarious as Dory. Here's a funny clip of her tv show! Some of the clips on Youtube were a bit inappropriate. I try to keep this blog G-rated as much as possible.

C is for Chip

Chip is one of my all time favorite Disney characters. He's so cute and funny! My favorite quote is at the end of the film when everyone's human again. Chip asks, "Do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?" Hilarious!

Here are a couple of photos I snapped of Chip during my visit to Disney World in January! We saw a play of "Beauty and the Beast".

I can't end this post without including a video clip of Chip! This is a Youtube clip of the actual play that we saw while at Disney. Also, did I mention that I bought a real-life Chip mug? It looks just like him, but sadly it doesn't talk. :(

B is for Beauty and Beast

It didn't seem right to do a Disney-themed post for B and leave these two characters out! It's kind of funny to have two characters starting with the same name that are a couple!

I'll start out with Belle first. I remind myself of Belle because I am quiet and have some trouble fitting in. I've always had trouble making friends, but when I do make friends, the relationships tend to be really good ones. I'm also an intellectual, just like Belle is. I also love reading!

The Beast is an example that we all need to follow. He teaches us that it's what's on the inside that counts, and not to judge someone when they first meet them.

This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie:
