Prince Almost-Charming: Dating Don’ts from Disney’s Leading Gentlemen

by: D-Team Cassie Kidd


Prince Charming isn’t always the “perfect guy.” Some of our leading gentlemen need a break from their lessons of “chivalry” for a bit of common sense. Here is a list of the worst dating scenarios our leading gentlemen (and villains) have gotten themselves into!

 

Prince Naveen – “A redhead on my left arm, a brunette on my right, a blonde or two to hold the candles, now that seems just about right.”

As crazy as this sounds, the way to a woman’s heart is not to make her feel like one of ten. Portraying yourself as a player right off the bat does not paint a picture of forever in your lady’s mind.

 

Prince Naveen – “You know, waitress, I finally figured out what is wrong with you.”

Music GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Like men, women don’t exactly appreciate destructive criticism. Blatantly telling a woman that there is something wrong with her is not an ideal date night conversation.

 

Prince Naveen – “You have had quite an influence on me. Which is amazing because I have dated thousands of women and -”

Though his intentions were pure, telling a woman how many other women you have dated is not swoon-worthy material. Your goal is to make her feel special, but comparing her to others typically has the opposite effect.

 

Prince Adam (Beast) – “You’ll come out or I’ll-I’ll-I’ll break down the door!”

Beauty And The Beast GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

It should probably go without saying that using force is not an acceptable approach to women. We can be stubborn, just like men, but remember: you’ll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar!

 

Gaston – “What would you say if you and I took a walk over to the tavern and take a look at my trophies?”

It’s one thing to be confident, but another to be cocky. Women can surely appreciate your accomplishments, but bragging about yourself and using trophies is not the way to win her over.

 

Aladdin – Jasmine: “Did you think I was stupid? That I wouldn’t figure it out?” Aladdin: “No! No! I-I mean, I-I hoped you wouldn’t. Uh…no, that-that’s not what I meant!”

Building lies on top of more lies is certainly not a promising way to begin a courtship. If she catches you in a lie, don’t continue lying. Aladdin should’ve listened to Genie’s wisdom, “tell her the TRUTH!”

 

Jafar – “You’re speechless, I see. A fine quality in a wife.”

This is a very effective line if you wish to be slapped across the face. Women do not particularly like being belittled, and this is a fine example of a condescending comment that will forever label you as undateable.

 

Flynn Rider – “All right, listen! I didn’t want to have to do this, but you leave me no choice. Here comes the smolder…This is kind of an off day for me. This doesn’t usually happen.”

Using pick-up lines or model-esque facial expressions is comical, sure, but as a genuine attempt to court a lady, it fails miserably. Don’t tell your lady that your tricks usually work on other women, because you will start seeing that “success rate” plummet.

 

Grumpy – “Hah! Women! A fine kettle of fish.”

Calling women an awkward state of affairs, or “crazy” in today’s jargon, is not a welcoming gesture to your lady. She will likely not appreciate A) being labeled with all women, and B) being called crazy at all.

 

Kristoff – “Whoa, whoa, whoa, put your feet down. This is fresh lacquer. Seriously, were you raised in a barn?”

When you have finally succeeded in courting your special lady, please make sure you treat her with more respect than your vehicle.

 

Princes aren’t always the best resource for dating advice. Be careful not to fall into similar situations in your love life! Things won’t end as well off-screen as they did for these fortunate “gentlemen.”

Silence is Golden: Disney’s Speechless Characters

Silence is Golden: Disney's Speechless Characters

Silence is Golden: Disney’s Speechless Characters

by:  D-Team: Cassie Kidd

Every Disney movie has comedic relief characters. These characters are usually the underrated heroes that the protagonist need in order to triumph over evil and defeat the bad guy. Oftentimes, these characters become the most beloved. Take Olaf, for example. One of the most recognizable characters from Frozen is a Snowman (whom, I hear, likes to give warm hugs). But this post is not for the Olafs of the Disney Universe. Today, we pay homage to the comedic relief characters that have never said a word!

 

Carpet – Aladdin

Disney GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Carpet goes through a lot of pain to keep Aladdin on his track to win Princess Jasmine and defeat Jafar. He gets stepped on, pulled, and even unraveled for the cause, but he maintains a playful and humorous demeanor throughout the franchise. He’s excellent at chess and is always up for boxing or even a rousing game of hide-and-seek. Take a bow, Carpet!

 

Abu – Aladdin

Abu is Aladdin’s right-hand monkey. Abu has Aladdin’s back through thick and thin, and he often is a better judge of character than his protagonist. Ah, if only he could communicate that through more than suspicious looks and threatening screeches. Luckily, he understands Aladdin perfectly and is always ready to act himself out of sticky situations. Abu is a tightly-wound ball of energy ready to respond to anyone picking on him. You go, Abu!

 

Raja – Aladdin

Aladdin is a wealth of silent characters. Raja is another fine example of a character that impacts the development of a protagonist and the outcome of the story. Raja is Jasmine’s only friend. He protects her from annoying suitors by attacking their trousers and insulting them. He is affectionate and expressive with as much sass and spunk as the Princess herself!

 

Ed – The Lion King

Oh, Ed. When he was a cub he must have been dropped on his head, that’s for sure. Ed understands the world around him but just cannot seem to fit in. Whether he is getting a bum full of thorns or smacked with a branch, this particular hyena can never catch a break – which makes for an excellent source of comedic relief for the viewers. Ed’s laugh and awkward moments are more than enough to send any child into a giggle fit without saying a word.

 

Meeko – Pocahontas

This hungry little raccoon is always getting himself into trouble. He is a stark contrast of Percy the pug, whom he is always dragging into mischief with him. He takes Percy’s food, interrupts his bubble baths, and tricks him into sticky situations – like a run-in with Grandmother Willow. Meeko is a free spirit that knows what he likes and isn’t afraid to go get it. (It’s usually biscuits).

 

Flit – Pocahontas

This little hummingbird does his best to keep Meeko in line. He is constantly prodding Meeko into doing the right thing, and is constantly falling short. He is an expressive little creature that can’t help but get in the way on occasion, and it usually hurts! Poor Flit has been sat on and even gotten his beak stuck in a tree. After a quick squeaky rant he is back to his sweet and helpful demeanor to support Pocahontas.

 

Percy – Pocahontas

This little pug is as tightly-wound as they come. He is prim and proper and has no time for Meeko’s shenanigans. He is easily flustered by Meeko’s antics, but must always have the last bark in the matter (or try to, anyway). He follows Meeko on strange adventures, barking in protest the entire time. He gets dirtier and angrier as the adventures progress, and eventually gives in to his animal instinct to become friends with the annoying raccoon.

 

Cri-Kee – Mulan

This little cricket was purchased under the assumption that he is lucky – and he sure seems to be! Cri-Kee is with Mulan through all of her adventures, and her biggest mishap, as well. Cri-Kee single-handedly takes down the Matchmaker in an awkward fit of ink and tea. He then accompanies Mulan on her journey to war to provide luck and support for other missions, like the bombing of the mountain or the fake letter of redirection. Cri-Kee packs a lot of talent and humor into one tiny package!

 

The Man with the Ice Cream Cone – Lilo & Stitch

Lilo is a strange girl looking for people as strange as she is. In her adventure with Stitch, one person in particular makes several silent appearances. The Man with the Ice Cream Cone is somehow always in the right place at the right time for comedic purposes – and he always loses his ice cream for the sake of a laugh.

 

Juju – The Princess and the Frog

Juju is an incredibly laid-back snake. He lets Mama Odi walk all over him and even turn him into other animals. He gives her all the support a blind voo-doo lady needs with all the facial expressions she will never see. His reactions are priceless, from her wake-up call to smooches, Juju has the demeanor of a dog which makes for quality family-friendly laughs.

 

Pascal – Tangled

Tangled GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

For being limited by his size, this firecracker of a Chameleon goes above and beyond to help Rapunzel realize her dream. He always has her best interests at heart and is obviously protective of her against strangers. His color-changing with mood and setting, and his odd, but effective, waking antics make for a unique sidekick for the lost Princess.

 

Maximus – Tangled

Another Tangled favorite is Maximus. Maximus is a fierce palace horse with a feisty attitude. He doesn’t have time for lame excuses, but he may take a moment for an apple [bushel]. His determined nature gets him into some pretty interesting predicaments, but he presses on! Whether he’s tracking down, monitoring, or rescuing Flynn Ryder [Eugene], he is always providing top notch military horse service and laughs.

 

Kevin – Up

Kevin’s antics are as eccentric as her feathers. Her stealthy hide-and-seek skills are legendary because of her ability to climb into awkward spaces. She will do anything for chocolate and becomes a big help in Carl’s quest. She is completely unfazed by negativity and will do anything to protect her babies.

 

Sven – Frozen

Though Kristoff likes to speak for his antlered friend, Sven never speaks throughout the Frozen film (or short). He is a silent and sassy reindeer that is full of surprises. He provides Anna and Kristoff the transportation support they need in their adventure – along with plenty of laughs! He’s curious and gentle, but clearly a carrot-addict. Olaf is lucky that Sven is such a sweet creature or he may have had need for a new nose.

 

Heihei – Moana

HeiHei is the  most unorthodox travel companion anyone could ever ask for, but turns out to be the perfect chicken for the job of returning the heart of Tafiti. He is a few feathers short of brilliance and exceptionally uncoordinated which makes him the perfect comedic relief for kids and adults to enjoy!

 

The Ocean – Moana

Moana GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

Everyone knows the Ocean can be a bit temperamental, but Disney brought that attitude to life in Moana! From playing with baby Moana’s hair to stuffing HeiHei in a basket to prevent him from falling off the boat, the Ocean certainly has a mind of its own in this magical journey.

April 6, 2017 – Show #172

It’s Time D-Heads! This week we celebrate our Official 7th Anniversary of DizRadio by welcoming a return guest in the iconic JIM CUMMINGS (Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Pete, Hondo, Darkwing Duck, Ray the Firefly and countless others). Jim talks about his career, Mickey’s Roadster Racers, Darkwing and more!  

In addition no show is complete without the D-Team and this week to celebrate our Anniversary we are doing the show different than our usual format. Instead of our usual format we are going to invite you to an exclusive D-Team Fireside Chat. We are going to discuss the many years of the show, guests, moments, character mash ups, and more as we sit down with no agenda other than celebrating together this milestone journey together along with you D-Heads! 

There is news fresh off the D-Wire with the latest news from the Walt Disney Company, but since we are changing formats this week, we instead will take news into a different direction for this fun diversion from our normal format. 

JIM CUMMINGS (Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Ray the Firefly, Darkwing Duck, Hondo, Pete and more!)
