Disney Characters that Deserve More Attention

The Top Ten
1 Jose Carioca Jose Carioca

He's cute and likable, but not quite forgotten. He appears on Gran Fiesta Tour at Epcot, is a main character on the show Legend of the Three Caballeros, and he appears a couple times on Ducktales (2017).

If you live in Brazil this guy is a cultural icon. If you live anywhere else you have no idea who he is.

2 Panchito Pistoles Panchito Pistoles

Like Jose, he is also very likable. However, him and Jose have had a few major appearances such as at Epcot, their own short series, and a couple appearances on Ducktales (2017).

3 Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

The fact that Iger traded Al Michaels for the rights to him and then barely used him besides some games that merely used the Disney IP (and clearly had very little involvement from Disney besides, due to the darker and grittier tone of the games, or to be more specific, the Epic Mickey series)... Oswald is an underrated staple.

In all honesty, I think he should've stayed at Universal instead of Disney.

4 Duffy the Disney Bear

You remember Duffy? Yes, no, maybe so? Well... if you go to Tokyo Disney Sea, it'd be impossible to not. Duffy was originally created as "The Disney Bear" in 2003 to rival the rapidly growing Build-A-Bear chain, he failed in America, but in Japan, he was a success, he was soon given a boatload of friends, a name (Duffy) and his own stage show at DisneySea.

At Tokyo Disney, he also has a girlfriend (Shelli Mae) and several friends of varying species and gender (Gelatoni the Cat, Stella Lou the Bunny, etc).

5 Horace Horsecollar Horace Horsecollar

Why tf is Disney trying to push Clarabelle/Goofy when she already has this guy?

6 Br'er Rabbit Br'er Rabbit Br'er Rabbit, also spelled Bre'r Rabbit or Brer Rabbit or Bruh Rabbit, is a central figure as Uncle Remus tells stories of the Southern United States.

He is practically the mascot of the beloved Splash Mountain ride and the origin of the iconic "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" song.

I know the pitchforks are coming, but yes, he was a good character and most certainly didn't deserve to be cancelled.

7 Jaq Jaq
8 Sid Phillips Sid Phillips Sid Phillips is a fictional character in the Toy Story franchise. He serves as the primary antagonist of the original Toy Story film.

Well, we did get to see him as adult at least (the garbage collector in Toy Story 3 was him).

9 Gopher Gopher
10 Gus
The Contenders
11 Robin Hood
12 Br'er Bear Br'er Bear

If Br'er Rabbit is on this list, so should the other "Br'er" characters

13 Br'er Fox Br'er Fox Br'er Fox is the primary antagonist in the animated sequences of the 1946 feature film Song of the South. He is a character from the Uncle Remus folktales adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris.

He is hilarious and very entertaining to watch! Besides Splash Mountain, he does not get much attention because of the controversy of the film he appears in, Song of the South.

An unbelievably cruel character. Not to say that's in itself a bad thing.

If Br'er Rabbit is on this list, so should the other "Br'er" characters

14 Sergeant Calhoun Sergeant Calhoun

Disney, you didn't need to go and create Skank or whatever tf Gal Gadot's character was! You already had a strong woman for Vanellope to look up to/bond with.

15 Fix-It Felix Fix-It Felix
16 Taffyta Muttonfudge

She got a talking doll, but like all the other Sugar Rush kids was reduced to a generic brat in the sequel. Just to sideline themselves, Felix and Calhoun.

17 Rancis Fluggerbutter

At least he got an official tie-in children's book ("One Sweet Race"); too bad he pretty much only appeared to be a generic brat in "Ralph Breaks the Internet".

18 Gadget Hackwrench Gadget Hackwrench Gadget is a fictional character from the animated Disney cartoon series Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers as the sole female member of the Rescue Rangers the genius of the group an inventor who is responsible for creating all the gadgets to aid the group in their missions.

She was one of the main characters in the Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers show and a cameo in the 2022 film, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers. Personally, I think her and the rest of the rescue rangers should have more attention.

19 Daisy Duck Daisy Duck Daisy Duck is a cartoon character created in 1940 by Walt Disney Productions as the girlfriend of Donald Duck.

While I totally understand Mickey & Minnie getting the bulk of couples, Valentine, wedding, etc. merch, Donald and Daisy should be featured more in that kind of merchandise than Stitch and his pink clone.

20 Princess Eilonwy
21 Ratigan Ratigan

An underrated Disney villain in an underrated Disney movie.
