The Top Ten

That moment in The Simpsons Movie when Barney, Lenny and Carl swipe all of Moe's booze during the blackouts is priceless.

She is the tenth Disney Princess, the first Disney Princess to be CGI-animated, and the first Disney Princess to have freckles or green eyes.

She's intelligent and multi-talented. She reads, charts stars, plays chess, knows how to manipulate people/animals, bakes, plays an instrument, is into art, and can wield a weapon (and her hair). On top of that she's cheerful, trusting, compassionate and selfless (volunteering to enter a life of complete submission to Gothel in order to save Eugene from dying). - Ari00
