Top 10 Most Underappreciated Disney Characters


The Top Ten

1 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.

In my opinion, Br'er Fox is by far the most underappreciated animated character to come out of the studio. Ever since I first rode Splash Mountain in 2005, he's been one of my favorite characters and I wish he got more attention. Even though the film he comes from is controversial, the animated segments have been highly praised for their lively animation, catchy music, and rich characters. Br'er Fox is certainly no exception to that, in fact, I like to think of Br'er Fox as the true star. He is a very humorous and expressive character that has a great character design and is full of personality, and even though he's the "bad guy", he's still so likable. Splash Mountain does a great job at staying true to his character, and he is my favorite character in the whole attraction. The Br'ers continue to be popular walk-around characters at the parks today, but even with that, and one of the most popular Disney rides, they still hardly get any merchandise or attention.

I feel bad for Br're Fox; in the stories my mom used to read to me it always seemed that Br're Rabbit was trying to get Br're Fox mad. any one get what I am saying?

8 Quasimodo Quasimodo
9 Eilonwy Eilonwy

She's a better classic heroine than Anna (Frozen) in every way anyway, isn't she?

Move over, Anna from Frozen!

Take that, Anna from Frozen!

Thumbs up for Eilonwy!
Thumbs down for Anna (Frozen)!

10 Elsa Elsa Queen Elsa of Arendelle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios' 53rd animated film Frozen.

The biggest all time complaint about Frozen was: Elsa didn't get to try to control her abilities at all like she actually deserves to so she tried to suppress them instead (there's a big difference). It's no wonder her magic went wonky in my opinion as it was tied to her emotions and the part of her that wanted to protect everyone warred with the part of her (because I firmly believe there was a part no matter how small) that resented having to always be careful and aloof.

Stupid Grand Pabbie should've actually been more clear with how Elsa needed to control her abilities and stopped the king of Aren-delle from going through with his isolation plan. Plus, those parents should've correctly showed Elsa how to love, accept and embrace not only just her ice magic powers but also be herself for who they really was actually born to be by properly providing Elsa with more brilliant advice and better guidance as to how to keep her ice magical powers under her own control and not let them be unleashed by accident at all which it would've helped Elsa become more opened to the others and the world around her.

Man, why didn't she get to use that time to get her powers under control? Why didn't those creators of Frozen utilize Elsa's potential to be a phenomenal character by using her perseverance in order to go on a quest to find a solution to the curse at all? Huh?

She really deserved her own more classical 2D cel traditional hand drawn animation/cartoon movie, didn't she?

16 Olaf Olaf Olaf the Snowman is a character from the 2013 animated film Frozen, produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Those creators, directors, filmmakers and writers of Frozen could've at least had Olaf be created in Elsa's childbirth infancy and become one of Elsa's other long time canon friends; maybe he could've at least been freely portrayed to be the one to make her realize that she can actually control her powers if she really puts her mind to it which it fairly would've made Frozen a more believable, better, more classical film than ever but no, instead they just lazily had to keep poor Olaf as this 1D not-so-funny character who doesn't easily really contribute anything to the Frozen movie at all, other than only just poor visual gags and a crappy song that doesn't need to be in the Frozen movie to move the plot along any at all so we're all forcefully expected to believe that Elsa who originally feared her own ice magic powers inexplicably enjoyed using them when the Frozen movie was over anyway.

So many people think Olaf is stupid as freak but he's a SNOWMAN. How do you expect him to know that he'll melt in summer? He didn't have a mother! Honestly, keep your expectations down. He's another one of the best characters even besides only just Elsa, isn't he?

17 Riley Andersen Riley Andersen Riley Andersen is a character from the 2015 Disney Pixar movie Inside Out. She is originally from Minnesota and when she turned 11-years old she and her family moved to San Francisco. Inside her mind she is guided by her emotions, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear.

Even though I think Bing Bong is more underrated than Riley, she honestly is understandable to never be talked about, she wasn't in the movie that much for a protagonist :/
