Loved the film…got a little emotional when Mickey talked to Walt and when they all were singing When You Wish Upon a Star. 😊 Anyone notice how some major characters like Woody and Buzz didn’t make the cut? I wonder if they didn’t make it due to scale with the other characters…being toys they’d be smaller than the Dalmatian puppies.

Saw Ralph and Felix, but just realized that’s not a Pixar film. Watched it again now to see who else, and it appears you are correct…no Pixar. 😊

This short is to reflect the Disney Animation studios side not the Bought out side (IE Blue Sky, Fox Animation, Touchstone and Pixar) or their other Animation Studio Disneytoons (So, no Goofy Movie, Planes or other Tinkerbell faries)

Getting back to who is Not there..From what I think should have as well..
Song of The South Characters
So Dear to My Heart Characters
Cmdr Rourke - Atlantis
Alameda Slim - Home on The Range
Wilbur - Rescuers Down Under (They show Orville with Bernard & Bianca)
Marahute (The Golden Eagle) - Rescuers Down Under
Jenny, Fagin, Sykes, Rosco and Desoto - Oliver & Co. (The main cast is there just not the side characters).

I know he's near the end of the credits, but I really though Lucifer could have played a part in it. Possibly chasing the puppies or Jaq and Gus.

Adding to the list:
- Julius the cat
- Toby Tortoise and Max Hare
- Pablo the penguin and Aracuan bird from The Three Caballeros
- Lulu Belle (they had Bongo) and Willie the giant from Fun and Fancy Free
- Bruno, Cinderella's dog (helped save Cinderella, should be there)
- Caterpillar, Walrus and Carpenter from Alice in Wonderland
- Siamese Cats from Lady and the Tramp
- Madame Bonfamille from Aristocats
- King Triton from Little Mermaid
- Yoyo Flamingo and the Sprite from Fantasia 2000
- Professor Owl

I wonder how many more they wanted to include but didn't.

We could be here for ages, especially since the group shot at the end isn’t the clearest to make out. I don’t think the point of the movie was to include every single character, just reference every movie by having a couple of characters each from the Walt Disney Animation Studio films. Of course the more ‘problematic’ properties were omitted.

Correct^^^

It's not about the characters. It's about representing all of their animated movies.

Is bedknobs and broomsticks in it? Or Mary Poppins penguins? If so, then I'd justify it's not fair that the Brers aren't in it... Considering it's a historical representation of their films.

Yes! The Mary Poppins penguins are in the movie and in the end photo! And so is the King Lion from the football match in Bedknobs and Broomsticks 😁

Pecos Bill, Pocahontas, Peter Pan characters were all still there 🥴🥲

Edit: I am not playing Oppression Olympics here (I don't mess with that ish), but it is troubling that properties that use racial slurs and depicted actual violence against their respective targets made the cut over others.

There were some I didn't recognize either, but turns out they were from newer shorts and movies I haven't seen.

It's understandable they wouldn't be able to have everyone, but it is a little sad to see some characters, like the brers, omitted.

The knowledge of deep cut characters from the members here is impressive!
Don't test a true Disney fan!! I got into a conversation as to why Zeus from Hercules was included in the photo, but King Triton from The Little Mermaid wasn't! I could only justify it with the fact that Triton is a Merman and that he'd need to be in an aquarium, Flounder was in the Mad Hatter's Hat, filled with water, and Ursula is an Octopus/Witch/Lady that should be able to survive on land!
