Top 10 Disney Cartoons Based on Disney Movies

MegaSoulhero
I just got my wisdom teeth taken out. Now I’m gonna try to forget about the pain that my mouth is currently feeling by discussing some Disney cartoons that are based on movies. These are cartoons that I’m sure everyone can find enjoyment in.

The Top Ten

1 Tangled: The Series Tangled: The Series

I watched the series and the movie, they're awesome - WerewolfBethanyYT

I don't watch it that much, but it's a pretty awesome show. - TheFourthWorld

Its awesome

This show would be fine if they didn’t put Cassandra in it. She takes more screen time than Flynn Ryder making him a side character which really bothers me! I hated the episode where Flynn Ryder proposed to Rapunzel (even though they already got married! ) and Cassandra looks at Flynn Ryder mad like he’s the bad guy! Which brings another point: Cassandra’s hate for Flynn Ryder and telling him to go away when he wants to hang out with Rapunzel bothers me a lot!
To Cassandra: Did you save Rapunzel from Mother Gothel? No! Are you even in the original movie? No! So do you have any right to tell Flynn Ryder to leave? No! Do you even have a right to exist? No! So go away!
Cassandra is not a bad character but I’d prefer if she just go into a different show. Because frankly, she’s always pushed to the front too much.

2 TaleSpin TaleSpin TaleSpin is an American animated television series based in the fictional city of Cape Suzette, that first aired in 1990 as a preview on The Disney Channel and later that year as part of The Disney Afternoon, with characters adapted from Disney's 1967 animated feature The Jungle Book, which was theatrically ...read more.

Not knowing this show as a kid shows that I had a terrible childhood. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Who doesn’t remember TaleSpin? It is such a classic show! Definitely one of Disney’s most memorable cartoons. This, DuckTales, and Darkwing Duck were pretty much the highlights of Disney Afternoon. One of the greatest things to come from the 90s. Seeing Baloo again after the Jungle Book is just so great. Even the other characters are very likeable. Jim Cummings is one of my favorite voice actors. So of course he does a great job in this. Tony Jay as Shere Khan is pure genius. He totally owns the role. This is a very smart cartoon that has a lot of charm to it and knows what it wants to be. I really wish Disney would reboot this series like they did for DuckTales. I really want to see it come back. - MegaSoulhero

3 Buzz Lightyear of Star Command Buzz Lightyear of Star Command

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command is a series based on the 2D animated Buzz Lightyear movie which is a spinoff of Toy Story. Buzz Lightyear is definitely the coolest character in Toy Story. And he’s definitely the most interesting one. So it makes sense that they would make a movie as well as an entire series about his life as a space ranger. I really enjoyed the movie. I remember watching it as a kid. I still happen to have it. The show is pretty much just as great as the movie. This honestly made me respect Buzz as a character even more. Each character is very memorable and each of them get their moment to shine. Tim Allen got replaced by Patrick Warburton for the series but I still think Patrick does a great job at voicing the character. He’s definitely a better Buzz in this than in that old Disneyland stage show that no one remembers. The writing is great, the animation is good, the action is spectacular, and the characters are excellent. What more can you ask for in a Buzz ...more - MegaSoulhero

4 Lilo & Stitch: The Series

Lilo and Stitch has had 4 movies. The original, Stitch Has a Glitch, Leroy (Jenkins) and Stitch, and the movie that acted as the pilot to the series, Stitch: The Movie. I actually watched this series before watching that movie. Throughout the series, Lilo and Stitch have to capture all of the experiments that are loose on Earth. It’s kinda like Pokémon in a way. I’m still wondering why they haven’t made a Pokémon Go type game but with Lilo and Stitch aliens. They’re making one for Jurassic World so I don’t see why they can’t do one for this. I love how unique each of the experiments look. They each have different designs as well as different abilities. My favorite character would have to be Reuben. I don’t know what is about him but I just find him hilarious. And we both have a love for sandwiches. The original voice for Lilo returned for this series. I looked at a few recent pictures of her and she is hot now. I like when child stars grow up to be very hot. The ...more - MegaSoulhero

5 Aladdin

The Aladdin T.V. series takes place in between Return of Jafar and King of Thieves. While nowhere near as good as the original movie, it’s still an enjoyable cartoon. There’s a lot great action and adventure as well as new villains. However, the villains can be pretty bland at times. The characters from the movie still act the same as they did in the movie. Aladdin and Jasmine have a really great relationship. Iago still acts like his cranky self. As for Genie, Dan Castellaneta is no Robin Williams, but I still find him to be a little funny times. Although, there are times when can get pretty obnoxious. I still prefer Robin Williams. There are some episodes that can be kinda slow and boring, but overall it’s pretty decent. - MegaSoulhero

6 Timon and Pumbaa Timon and Pumbaa

Before there was Lion King 1 1/2, there was an animated series known as Timon and Pumbaa. Which stars the two comic relief characters from the Lion King. I was worried about this since they were giving comic relief characters their own show. Thus making them the main focus. But believe it or not, it turned out to be very funny. It’s not as good as the Lion King or the Lion King 1 1/2, but I still really liked it. I remember watching this all the time when I was a kid. I decided to recently watch some episodes again to see if it still holds up. And it still does. The show takes place after the events of the first film. Well actually I’m pretty sure it takes place after the beginning of the movie since 1 1/2 shows us that Timon and Pumbaa met before Simba was born and they didn’t meet Simba until a few years later. It’s a little confusing, but it makes sense. Because I loved the humor in 1 1/2, I really like the humor here since Timon and Pumbaa are funny characters. Definitely ...more - MegaSoulhero

7 The Emperor’s New School

As you may know, I am a huge fan of the Emperor’s New Groove movie. So when I heard that it was getting a series, I was really excited. Although, I was kind of skeptical about the concept being about Kuzco going to school. But I gave it a watch and it turned out to be just as funny as the movie. The first couple of episodes alone had me laughing to tears. The show tends to rely on callbacks to the movie and for the most part it works. Like, there are moments when Yzma and Kronk go to their lair via theme park ride. It’s very hilarious each time. And yeah, Yzma and Kronk are still a great duo. There’s also a new character in the show named Malina. I though she was only gonna be included to be the bland love interest for Kuzco, but she actually has a great personality and contributes a lot. David Spade couldn’t reprise his role as Kuzco unfortunately, but the new voice actor really does a great job at impersonating him. I really miss this show. It was definitely a fun time. - MegaSoulhero

8 Big Hero 6: The Series

"The pilot sucked and it's the only episode so far, BUT let's put it on the list anyway since I can't think of ten."

Then why make the list at all? - LarkwingFlight

�� one episode - LightningBlade

This seems kind of unfair since only one episode has aired so far. Honestly, that first episode really sucked. Terrible animation, disappointing villain, and the characters are somewhat unlikeable. They also replaced some of the voice actors. I don’t know why they couldn’t get TJ Miller to reprise his role as Fred. I don’t know if it was because he was too busy with Deadpool 2 or the Emoji Movie or something but I really don’t like the new voice actor. As a fan of the movie, I found the pilot to be very underwhelming. But again, that was just the pilot. Hopefully the show gets better as it goes on. The animation is still terrible though. - MegaSoulhero

9 The Little Mermaid

I didn’t watch this when it was airing on T.V.. Mainly because I wasn’t born yet, but I binge watched the entire series online a few months ago and it was pretty good. It has elements that I loved about the movie while also introducing us to new things and characters that weren’t in the movie. There’s some pretty funny humor as well some pretty great songs. The animation is obviously T.V. quality and doesn’t look as smooth as the movie, but they still put a lot of detail into the scenery. It’s not a perfect show though. I’ve watched every episode of the series and I don’t remember Ariel being likeable in any of them. Most of the time she’s disobeying her father’s orders and causing mischief. Unlike the movie, she does learn her lesson at the end of these episodes. Although, if she actually did, she wouldn’t continue to cause trouble. But hey, nobody likes Ariel. At least she’s slightly more tolerable in this series. By the way, Ursula also makes appearances in ...more - MegaSoulhero

10 The Legend of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan! No no. I’m not talking about that terrible live action movie from 2016. I’m talking about the cartoon from 2001. I wouldn’t exactly say it’s great. It’s mainly just okay. I definitely prefer the movie but mostly because there were just a lot more memorable moments in the movie. This one can be pretty forgettable. I barely even remember it. But I do remember watching it and thinking it was okay. It apparently only lasted one season. There were also three unaired episodes that were used to make the Tarzan and Jane movie. Which I also thought was just okay. Overall, this isn’t a great series, but it has enjoyable moments. Definitely better than that terrible Netflix Tarzan cartoon. - MegaSoulhero

The Contenders

11 Ducktales Ducktales DuckTales is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. It premiered on September 18, 1987 and ended on November 28, 1990 with a total of four seasons and 100 episodes.

Not based on a movie. Unless you count the old Mickey Mouse cartoons - Gangem

Am I missing something? What movie is DuckTales based on? - MegaSoulhero

12 The Lion Guard The Lion Guard The Lion Guard is an American animated television series developed by Ford Riley based on Disney's 1994 film The Lion King. The series was first broadcast with a television movie titled The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar on Disney Channel on November 22, 2015 and began airing as a TV series on January ...read more.

Ummm, no! This show sucks!
