"Disney's Halloween Treat" is a 47-minute Halloween-themed clip show which first aired on The Wonderful World of Disney in 1982 and featured a compilation of Disney animated shorts involving spooky or supernatural themes as well as excerpted segments from Disney feature films. The credits also featured footage from Disney's Haunted Mansion ride. The special was narrated by a jack-o'-lantern puppet, which was also used in an educational short to talk about Halloween safety called Disney's Haunted Halloween. The opening and closing credits feature an orange colorized version of the 1929 Silly Symphonies short The Skeleton Dance, as well as its own theme song, sung in the opening and closing credits. The lyrics were written by Galen R. Brandt with music by John Debney.

It was shown throughout the 1980s up until the mid 1990s. It was also released on VHS in 1984. As of today, Disney's Halloween Treat has not been released on DVD.

Another similar special titled A Disney Halloween aired in 1983 which featured segments from both "Disney's Halloween Treat" and the 1977 episode "Disney's Greatest Villains."

Pocahontas
11. Pocahontas: The lovely Pocahontas. I'm going to be honest when I say that I actually think she would have been higher on the list if in wasn't for the fact that I couldn't find a good picture of her. Anyway the lovely native american princess Pocahontas.

10. Tiana: She is very lovely indeed with pretty black hair and rosy red lips I mean shes even cute as a frog just barley makes 8 because I had to think for a long time as to who is prettier Tiana or Pocahontas. Well congratulations Tiana for beating out a sexy Native American.

9. Cinderella: The second Disney princess and the first Disney blond haired blue eyed beauty. Of course she would have a spot on my list. Her beauty is sometimes underrated as people are all about the unique beauty thing and unique beauty is sometimes the best but people tend to over look traditionally pretty.

8. Meg: I think this girl is sometimes over looked in the beauty department. Some people think her facial features are to pointy and that she looks weird and is just plain ugly. But I happen to think that she is very pretty. Her body is just a tad to unrealistic.

This list is only about Disney villains who turned up in animated full-length feature. No Pixar, no package movies and no half-animated movies. I also only included villains, who definitly are villains, not those who turned good at the end of the movie (like Amos Slate) or those which are mostly just slightly jerky characters (like the characters of Dumbo or the Siamese cats).


10. Sloth:

It should be obvious why this motivation is at the bottom on the list. Lazy villains don’t really provide much action because they are…well, too lazy to do much. So it’s no wonder that the only Disney villains with this motivation are side villains: Drizella and Anastasia (I don’t care that the sequels more or less redeemed Anastasia, they don’t exist in my mind-canon). Certainly two fun characters, but can you imagine them as the main villains in Cinderella? It's not like they went out of their way to make Cinderella's life difficult (like Lady Tremaine did), as long as their step-sister did all their work for them, they were basically happy.They would have been still in bed when the Grand Duke turned up!

Peter Pan 1 and 2 (1953-2002)
Disney’s magical classic that taught us to believe “We can fly!” has enchanted generations with its spectacular story, memorable music and beloved characters including Peter Pan, the feisty Tinker Bell and infamous Captain Hook. Now you can experience the Peter Pan, its sequel Peter Pan 2: Return to Neverland. Bursting with fantasy, adventure and pixie dust and more! Karatelover likes Return to Neverland and she hates Peter Pan. But that's ok because that's her opinion. In my opinion, Peter Pan 1 and 2 are boring and worse.

Sykes is my number 1 favourite disney villain ever because he's evil and notorious. Sykes is one of Disney's most heavy-set villains, shown usually in shadows. He is brutal, shadowy, sarcastic, uncaring, clean-shaven, eerily charming, evil, mean, and ruthless. He smokes large cigars and is seen always in a sharp suit to further emphasize his role as an intelligent businessman in command of the situation, and not merely some common thug taking orders from someone else.

Unusually for Disney, the lifestyle and behavior of a loan shark is not glamorized or made more child-friendly. Beneath his businessman-like exterior, Sykes is clearly a ruthless, brutal murderer - during a scene with Fagin he is heard clearly on the phone discussing with some unknown person a manner of torturing and murdering some other unknown.

His minions in the movie are his two Dobermans, Roscoe and DeSoto. Sykes has lent a large amount of money to the petty criminal Fagin for some unknown reason, sending his 2 evil Dobermans, Roscoe and DeSoto, to tell Fagin to go up and meet with him. Fagin, unfortunately, finds himself unable to pay the money back, and begs for more time. Sykes tells...

This Winnie The Pooh sequel is unplanned and most disappointing. Winnie the Pooh and his friends hear a strange noise and find a set of large, perfectly circular footprints in the Hundred Acre Wood (and, in Tigger's case, a major earthquake in the middle of the night, causing his house to be severely damaged). They jump to the conclusion that the noise and prints are from a heffalump, and Rabbit organizes an expedition to go try to catch it; a disappointed Roo is told to stay behind, as everyone believes the expedition is too dangerous for one as young as he.

Roo slips out on his own in search of the heffalump, and soon finds one; a playful young four-footed creature named Heffridge Trumpler Brompet Heffalump IV (nicknamed "Lumpy"), coloured lavender and having a British accent and a trunk like an elephant, but being not much larger than Roo. Roo is afraid at first, but the two quickly become friends and play. After a while, Lumpy hears his mother calling for him to come home. Roo wants Lumpy to come home with him to meet all of his friends first, and they head towards the Hundred Acre Wood. When they get to the fence, Lumpy suddenly stops; thinking that the...

This is the final part of my countdown and for the most part the results don't surprise me. Well there are some negative people who don't care much about some of their looks overall everyone thought they were gorgeous. Just like with the last two articles I will be telling the publics opinion and than my opinion. Each character will also recieve a comment. Please keep in mind that this isn't my opinion but the opinion of the public, enjoy.

10.Rapunzel(Tangled)

I was a little surprised about this because of how people say she's just cute and looks childish. Anyway, obviously her long gorgeous golden hair is her best feature. It's so shiny and lusious. Her smile is so charming, she has a normal nose, the typical beautiful disney heroine facial structure, cute freckles, amazing glossy lips, and beautiful big green eyes. For once a disney princess actually has green eyes instead of the villian. I'm surprised girls with freckles didn't comment to say how they love that she has freckles which make her look very unique. She even looks lovely with short brown hair. She's considered the most beautiful of all of disney's CGI...

This is part to of the results of my countdown which includes places 20-11. Unlike 39-21, while there was some haters with some of these girls, overall they're considered either very pretty or beautiful. Personally I strongly disagree with some of these things but oh well it's not my list. Anyway just like last time I'm going to tell the publics opinion and than mine. Also keep in mind that this is just the opinion of fanpop. Please leave a comment on what you think of the article, enjoy.

20.Jane(Return To Neverland)
I was personally very sad that she left so soon, but happy she made it to at least the top 20. While she had her haters(who are completely biased) overall people found her quite pretty. She has such gorgeous blue eyes, a dazeling smile, lovely lips, and cool hair. She's one of the few females I think can pull off short hair. Plus the beautiful animation does help with her looks. However some people didn't like her nose because it was barely drawn and found her hair ugly. It's weird because usually(and oddly) Jane is usually considered prettier than her mother. I guess it's because of a new audience that she's not...

As many of you might know I'm working on a very long countdown including all the disney heroines; the disney princesses, the disney non-princess adult heroines, the young heroines, the pixar heroines, the classically animated 2-D heroines, the 3-D computer animated CGI heroines, and even the animated heroines from live action movies. For this round I will tell about the ones who unfortunately didn't make it to the top 20 but that doesn't necessary mean that all of them are considered ugly. I will talk about what they audience thought about them and than my opinion of them. There will also include a comment from the audience. Please keep in mind this isn't my opinion but the opinion ofthe public. Leave a comment telling me what you think.

39.Colette(Ratatouille)
We all know that pixar heroines are more know for their amazing personalities rather than their beauty. People all found her ugly, none found her attractive at all. Her nose is HUGE, her eyes are weird, her hear was shaped odd, and the only real appealing thing about her is her pretty hair. I pretty much agree with the audience, she's the ugliest disney heroine EVER, even...

Aladdin-PEDDLER: Oh I come from a land
From a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where they cut off your ear /Where it's flat and immense
If they don't like your face /And the heat is intense
It's barbaric, but hey--it's home!
When the wind's at your back
And the sun's from the west
And the sand in the glass is right
Come on down,
Stop on by
Hop a carpet and fly
To another Arabian night!

Arabian nights
Like Arabian days
More often than not
Are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways

Arabian nights
'Neath Arabian moons
A fool off his guard
Could fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes.

Ah, Salaam and good evening to you worthy friend.
Please, please, come closer--(Camera zooms in hitting
peddler in face) Too close, a little too close. (Camera

Walt Disney
Walter Elias "Walt" Disney (December 5, 1901 – December 15, 1966), was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, and animator. One of the most well-known motion picture producers in the world, Disney was also the creator of an American theme park called Disneyland, and is the co-founder with his brother Roy O. Disney of Walt Disney Productions, the profitable corporation now known as The Walt Disney Company.

Walt Disney is in particular noted for being a successful storyteller, a hands-on film producer, and a popular showman. He and his staff created a number of the world’s most popular animated properties; including the one many consider Disney’s alter-ego, Mickey Mouse. Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois to Elias Disney and Flora Call. He was named after his father and after his father's close friend Walter Parr, the minister at St. Paul Congregational Church. In 1906, his family moved to a farm near Marceline, Missouri. The family sold the farm in 1909 and lived in a rented house until 1910, when they moved to Kansas City. Disney was nine years old at the time.

The Disney Renaissance refers to an era beginning roughly in the late 1980s and ending around 2000,[1][2] during which Walt Disney Animation Studios returned to making successful animated films mostly based on well-known stories, restoring public and critical interest in Disney. The Best Jim Henson film, Walt Disney Animation Studios didn't make, is Muppet Treasure Island

The animated films and one live action film released during this period include The Little Mermaid (1989), The Rescuers Down Under (1990), Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas (1995), Muppet Treasure Island (1996), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Hercules (1997), Mulan (1998), and Tarzan (1999). After the deaths of Walt and Roy O. Disney, Disney was left in the hands of Donn Tatum, Card Walker and Ron Miller. The films released over an 18 year period following this change of management failed either commercially or failed to capture the magic of past films. The sting was felt hard during production of The Fox and the Hound when long-time animator Don Bluth left Disney, taking 11 Disney animators with him,[3] to start his own rival studio, Don Bluth...

SuperTed is a Welsh teddy bear who has superpowers. He along with his friend Spotty try to do good. SuperTed was a series of stories created by Mike Young who eventually created a television series based on those stories. 'SuperTed' was created by Mike Young in 1978[1] for his son to help him overcome his fear of the dark. Later Mike decided to put the stories into book form. Superted originally was a bear from the woods who was also afraid of the dark, until one day Mother Nature give him a magic word which gives him Superpowers and transform him to SuperTed. After a while, Mike started to write actual story books about SuperTed. Then after some unsuccessful attempts, he was able to get his book published by a local printer. This led Mike to a successful career, writing and publishing over 100 SuperTed books, with illustrations done by Philip Watkins, until 1990. Just after his first book was published, his wife suggested he should produce a stuffed toy version of SuperTed which was done in 1980.[2]

Scott Weinger as Aladdin
The Return of Jafar is my favourite disney film of all time. It was in 1994. It's the best sequel in disney history. It's a villains film. Jafar is one of my favourite disney villains. Let me show you The Return of Jafar voice actors.

1. Scott Eric Weinger (born October 5, 1975) is an American actor, television producer and writer, best known as the voice of Aladdin in Walt Disney's eponymous feature film. Weinger would reprise the role in two direct-to-video sequels, for the Disney Channel television series, and the Kingdom Hearts Series. He is also well known for playing D.J. Tanner's boyfriend "Steve" on Full House for two seasons. He is currently writing for television, and has written for both comedy and drama.

2. Jonathan Freeman (born February 5, 1950) is the best villains voice actor ever. He voiced Jafar. He should do more villains voices in new disney films.

3. Gilbert Gottfried (born February 28, 1955) is an American actor, voice actor and stand-up comedian best known for his trademark comedic persona of speaking in a loud, grating tone of voice and squinting.[1] He has played numerous roles in film and television, perhaps most...

Witch
The villain does his best to give his worst, and Walt Disney Animation Studios are no exception. Good cannot triumph without evil. In 51 disney classics, they have brought to life some rogues who will go down in history. On the following pages, we pay tribute to some famous characters who did not win, however hard they tried.

1. Witch-Walt Disney's most famous and terrifying witch made her debut in "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" in 1937, the academy award winning story about the queen who turns into a witch and offers her stepdaughter a poisoned apple because she is jealous of her youth and beauty. The witch eventually fails, of course, but not until she's given the Seven Dwarfs and children all over the world a healthy scare or two.

2. Cinderella's Stepmother-Best remembered for her cruel treatment of her stepdaughter and her piercing stare, Cinderella's stepmother was outwitted in the end, thanks to the help of two dedicated mice and a fairy godmother. Like many of Disney's feature cartoon villains, her debut as a performer so associated her with the cartoon she first appeared in that she was never asked to perform again.

I'm sorry. I'll never say Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the worst film again. And you're right. It is the greatest. So Snow White is ok and so are the seven dwarfs and so is The Evil Queen or Witch. It should be the leader of the disney films, but The Return of Jafar is my number 1 favourite disney film. The Evil Queen was the first disney villain. You know what, this film is a real classic. I used to first watch it as a 90's kid. Heigh Ho is one of the greatest songs of all time. The Witch is probably better than the queen or is she? This film was the first disney film in 1937. When i looked on the transcipt, i saw the quote of "You'll pay for this!" It's a good one i like it. I'm sorry, everyone. I'm really sorry.

Hopper
The villain does his best to give his worst, and Pixar Animation Studios are no exception. Good cannot triumph without evil. In shorts and features, they have brought to life some rogues who will go down in history. On the following pages, we pay tribute to some famous characters who did not win, however hard they tried.

Upon the grasshoppers' first invasion of Ant Island, Hopper discovers the absence of food. Due to his belief that mercy is a weakness, he demands that the ants try again - and when Flik tries to stand up to him, tells the ants to double their normal payment. During their brief stay, his younger brother Molt starts to gabble on about how Hopper is afraid of birds, and Hopper tells him that if he hadn't promised their mother on her deathbed that he wouldn't kill Molt, he would kill him. Further infuriated by Molt, he vents by punching another grasshopper to the ground.

Later back at the grasshopper hangout, Molt asks Hopper why they're going back to Ant Island at all, and when this angers him, hastily admits that it was Axel and Loco's idea to stay. Hopper calms down slightly, realising that there is dissent in the gang. He points out to the...

Mowgli has a rubbish and annoying voice. Mowgli gets all pain and so does Shanti. Shanti calls Mowgli ugly. Nasty girl! John Goodman as Baloo is also rubbish. All the characters in this film are rubbish except Shere Khan, Kaa and Ranjan's father, the only 3 ones you can like. Besides, they're not really annoying. But don't tell anybody about this sequel or they ought to watch it. Mowgli is living in the Man Village with the girl who lured him in, Shanti, his adopted brother Ranjan, and their parents. However, Mowgli longs to return to the fun of the jungle, and after nearly leading the other children of the village into the jungle, is punished by his adopted father for trying to lead them into danger. Meanwhile, in the jungle, Shere Khan has returned to Baloo and Bagheera's part of the jungle to exact revenge on Mowgli. Baloo sneaks into the Man Village and gets Mowgli to come with him to live in the jungle; however, unbeknownst to them, Shere Khan also infiltrated the village, only to be chased off by the village people. In the ensuing chaos of the tiger's attack, Shanti and Ranjan go into the jungle to retrieve Mowgli, believing that Baloo is a hostile animal and kidnapped the...

I walked around The Disney Academy with my best friend, Alice, holding one of many maps, open. This map showed the entire layout of the campus.
“Now, if that’s the Art Tavern,” I said looking over at the building and then back at the map, “That must be the Girl’s Freshman Dorm Building. Right?... Alice?” I looked around to make sure she was still walking with me. I found her nose buried into a book.
“Alice!” I said grabbing, and shutting the book from her hands. She looked up in alarm.
“Hey! I was just getting to a good part!” Alice snapped at me. Trying to grab the book back from my hands. I raised it up holding it above her head. I often used this against her considering I was taller than her.
“No, no, no! Look it! It’s our dorm house!” I pointed to an ivy covered building windows, and sliding glass doors lining the walls. The doors lead to private porches. Goodness, I hope we get a dorm on one of the top levels. I thought to myself, thinking I would not want people to be able to get on my porch and into my dorm.

I wiped the sweat off my face after one of my daily workouts. I notice three girls -- The Bimbettes as they’re called -- checking me out. I wink at them. They all gasp and look at each other, not believing it could be true. I decide to play a little with them.
“Hey Ladies.” I say smoothly, and give them a charming smile, striding up towards them. With my shirt off and right after a workout I was pretty much irresistible.
“H-H-Hi Herc..” They all sighed and started blushing. Oh yeah I thought, but right before I was going to seal up a date -- with all three -- Tarzan pulled me away from them.
“Hercules! Come on!” He pulled me by the arm,and I had just grabbed my shirt in time before I was pulled out of the gym.
“Bye Ladies!” and as soon as the door shut, “DUDE! What was that for! I had almost scored a date, with all three bimbettes! You could’ve come along too!” Tarzan shook his head and continued to pull me down the hall, towards our dorm.

Epilogue

`    The grandfather clock rang eleven times. The kitchen was mostly dark, except for a little bit of moonlight trickling into the house from its window. Annette and Collette were sleeping together. Danielle slept near them, with Puffball at her side. Also sleeping were Peg and Spunky, who were in a soft bed in the corner by the door, sleeping next to each other with smiles on their faces. In the center of the room were Lady and Tramp, who were fast asleep in one cushy, large, round bed. Upstairs, Jim Dear, Darling, and Junior were sleeping. Everyone was sleeping… except for Scamp! He was standing up in his bed, staring out the window with Angel sleeping by his side. He stared out at the bright moon above. Far away, a train horn blared. Scamp smiled. The noise made him excited. He wasn’t ready to go to bed yet. Scamp sat down and looked at Angel, happily sleeping. He began to think of exciting adventures they’d have in the morning…
    Then, Scamp heard a small tapping on wood. Scamp jolted up. He looked through the room excitedly, but saw that everyone was sleeping. He sighed, “Rats…”

there are only a handful of Disney movies that are REALLY Monumentally successful, only 5 of them are Not made by Walt Disney (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Tangled). and as for the ones Walt Disney made there are 12. however, even though these movies are nowhere near as successful as Snow White, they are incredibly popular, is it because its that good or is it something else.

when you go around fanpop you will see there is an obvious era of Disney everyone's in favor of: The 90's but they are only successful because most of the members are from that era, they grew up with them and there for they think they are the best, and although that's great that they think so, that is far from successful economically.

Believe it or not Cinderella is more successful than The Little Mermaid, and Lady and the Tramp is more successful than Aladdin. not by much but still. this is exactly what I'm talking about. Many of the Disney movies of the late 30s- 60s are very well known but many people who didn't exist in that generation might say things like "its OK but its just old". when in fact many movies are very similar to others, Bambi...
