When you settle into your favorite Disney classic, chances are you're looking for some emotional comfort food: something saccharine and sweet that's guaranteed a happily every after. For years, the company delivered that ad nauseum, and while it's certainly nice when you're feeling down, other times, all that sugar is a bit much. That's whyI'm really grateful for a sassy sidekick or evil villain popping up in a Disney film to perk up the film with something fun and sarcastic.
Of course, there's a huge spectrum of sass and many ways to execute it. There are certain clownfishes that might send out a one-liner out of panic, and there are very animated llama emperors that constantly snark as if they were a cartoon David Spade (wait...). There can be sass in the way one carries themselves, there can be sass that comes out of skepticism, and there can be sass in the way a character dances in a show-stopping musical number.
Thes characters can be cruel, absentminded, overconfident, and wittily dismissive, and they're always fun to watch. I've rounded up some of the sassiest Disney characters (animated only, fam) and collected said sass for you to look back on and enjoy.
