We all know about like Scar in Hercules or Sebastian in Aladdin or Flynn and Rapunzel in Frozen. But what about the more obscure and more well-hidden Disney cameos you never noticed? The ones where if you were to even blink, you’d miss them. Let’s start with some of disney’s greatest life lessons:
1. Mrs. Potts And Chip — Tarzan
Remember the scene when Terk and the rest of the animals raid the Porters’ camp site? Well, during the all the fun singing and destruction, you will actually be able to see a tea kettle and cup that look strangely like Mrs. Potts and Chip from Beauty and the Beast. Hopefully this takes place after they become human again.
2. Pongo — Oliver & Company
If you look closely during the “Why should I worry” musical number at the beginning of the film, you may actually get a glimpse at Pongo from 101 Dalmatians. Yeah, this could technically be any old dalmatian dog on the street of New York, but we all know what Disney was doing here.
3. The Evil Queen — Nightmare Before Christmas
You might be saying to yourself, “Wait, where? I don’t see the Evil Queen from Snow White anywhere in this picture.” Well if you look at the woman seated in the back on the right, you’ll notice she has the black robe and pale skin of the original design. If that still doesn’t convince you, then just look at what she’s holding.
4. Donald Duck — James And The Giant Peach
Have you ever wanted to see the beloved character of Donald Duck as a terrifying skeleton ghost? Well, James and the Giant Peach has answered your very odd prayer. During the fight on the ghost pirate ship, you’ll see the ghostly apparition of Donald Duck fighting with the rest of the pirates, with his trademark sailor suit and squeaky voice. Freaky, but still pretty cool.
5. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck And Goofy — Little Mermaid
Yeah, it’s pretty cool that Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy took the time out of their busy schedules to be there for King Triton’s announcement. But I think I speak for everyone when I say, “How the heck can they even breathe underwater?”
6. Lady And Tramp — 101 Dalmatians
Remember all the dogs barking across the city? Well, if you look closely at two of the dogs in the street, you’ll actually be able to spot Lady and Tramp from the film of the same name. Huh, what a coincidence.
7. The King And Grand Duke — The Little Mermaid
Huh, who knew that the King and Grand Duke from Cinderella had enough ties to be invited to the wedding of Prince Eric? When the animals come in to kick Ursula’s butt, you can actually catch the King and Grand Duke in the background of all the mayhem. But if you blink, you’ll miss it.
8. Princess Aurora — Oliver & Company
I think maybe Aurora fell asleep and sleepwalked away from her kingdom because she’s looking a little out of place here. Also, wasn’t she alive in medieval times? What a confusing cameo.
9. Bambi And His Mom — The Rescuers
If you look closely during the “Someone’s waiting for you” scene, you can clearly see Bambi and his mother just hanging out peacefully by the lake. Almost makes you totally forget about the heartbreaking events that are going to unfold in the future.
10. Nemo — Brother Bear
OK. This time Nemo has no excuse. Getting lost in the waters of Australia is one thing, but getting lost all the way up to North America? In post-Ice Age North America? There is no excuse, you little time-traveling troublemaker.
