According to the laws of tagging propriety this should not be my next tag to answer, but as the Insp for it came to me in a flash as it were—who am I to say nay? And since I’m going about tweaking rules already, I decided to make this Disney-specific with both character and couples, as Disney films contain some of my Very Favorites of All Story in both categories. Also, I did not divide the couples as it seemed all wrong to do so. Here are my answers and I hope all you jolly peoples enjoy it as muchly as I did writing it etc, etc!
(Thank you Hamlette for tagging me!)
Ella from Cinderella (2015)
My very favorite traditional rendering of the character, Ella is sweetly spirited Cinderella perfection!
Franz Lerner from Third Man on the Mountain (1959)
Hard edged, straight forward and with the most adorable laughing smile, Franz (as is Alan Breck for that matter) upon mine and Arwen’s Ultimate Five Heroes List and that, friends, is a place of serious honor.
Ana from Frozen (2013)
Of any Disney princess, she is the only one I have yet to see that I would truly like to name a child after. She is so loyal, fun, and everyday-ish, yet with a spice of originality.
Alan Breck Stewart from Kidnapped (1960)
No less than three of my favorite heroes have the last name of Stewart and Alan is definitely one of them. Why he is exactly is a very long subject, but two of the reasons are his devil-may-care temperament and humor. I love his humor.
Canoe from That Darn Cat! (1965)
Youthful heroes don’t usually appeal that greatly to me, but Canoe’s hilarity and his skill (or lack thereof) as a detective are an irresistible combination. (Besides, no one can smoke a pipe like him.)
Patty from That Darn Cat! (1965)
The cutest Siamese cat lives at her house (I would have said she owned it, but I couldn’t ;)). She has the cutest hair…and glasses…and outfits… and manner of talking. Yes, she’s terrific.
Jim and Carole from The Love Bug (1968)
Humorous (what a coincidence that this appears on so many of my favorites! :)), touching, and adventurous—their relationship is so adorable.
Fritz and Roberta from Swiss Family Robinson (1960)
Fritz and Roberta is: my idea of near perfect romance: tropical islands, monkeys, pirates, festival races, and pixie cut complete—their story simply makes me glad and happy and oh so cheerful to think about it!
Donovan and Dusty from The Apple Dumpling Gang (1975)
Nothing can outdo a good old marriage of convenience, and Donovan and Dusty’s is surely one of the most comical—the kissing scene being one of the best ever. :)
Eugene and Rapunzel from Tangled (2010)
Eugene and Rapunzel’s relationship is a mix of crazy yet utterly sweet and adorable. Before I saw the movie I could never have believed an animated film could be so romantic, but I do assure you, theirs now has me completely convinced.
As all of the people who I think might like getting tagged have already been tagged, I’m just going to leave it open to any readers who would like to do it—and if you choose to do my variation that would be even more charming!
