Geek Girl Northern Belle wrote this list of her top 5 bromances in Disney...
We often see a lot of dialogue about Disney relationships between the male and female romantic leads. With Frozen recently released people have applauded it for its nod to sisterly love as a form of “true” love and it got me to thinking what other “true love” stories might be out there. Then of course it occurred to me…what about the Bromances? So I decided to compile a list of my top 5 favourite Disney Bromances.
1. Timon & Pumbaa
The number one Disney bromance everyone is familiar with – Timon and Pumbaa. These two, voiced by Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella respectively, stole the screen in Disney’s The Lion King. As far as we know Timon and Pumbaa have been friends their whole lives and with a catchy number like Hakuna Matata and their friends for life attitude it isn’t hard to see why they are at the top of the list.
2. Basil of Baker Street & Dr. David Dawson
For those unfamiliar with these characters they hail from the 1986 classic The Great Mouse Detective. Essentially Sherlock Holmes with mice these two characters meet as adults when a peculiar case comes their way. Bonding over the course of the movie, their bromance is not really solidified till the end. After all it takes awhile to get used to Basil’s crazy nature as any Sherlock fan might know. Fortunately after some sleuthing, near death experiences and of course dressing up as pirates these two become the best of chums.
3. Todd and Copper
Perhaps the most tragic bromance in the Disney world Todd and Copper broke hearts in Disney’s The Fox and the Hound. A story of forbidden friendship and prejudice these two delight in each other’s company unaware of the societal boundaries around them. This movie unlike the afore mentioned films really tugged on heart strings with a roller coaster ride of a relationship between the two. A brilliant metaphor for standing up to society it taught us that standing up for what is right and defending those we love is never wrong.
4. Miguel & Tulio
This one is actually Dreamworks not Disney but it is just too epic a bromance to ignore, as con artists the bar isn’t set particularly high for Miguel and Tulio but in this quest for gold, of course we learn the real gold is the relationships we have. Voiced Kenneth Branagh and Kevin Kline one can see the actor’s natural wit and humour in the banter between these characters. A balanced team of a thinker and a doer, they have no difficulty getting themselves into loads of trouble. Their bromance, like so many before them is tested by not only a woman, but riches beyond their wildest dreams – yet in the end they remain ever the dynamic duo.
5. Kuzco & Pacha
Last on this list is the reluctant bromance of Kuzco and Pacha. Their story begins with Kuzco not only ignoring Pacha but preparing to destroy his entire life, for the sake of a summer home. In a classic story of the arrogant royal learning from the poor peasant, Pacha still decides to help the Emperor. Of course after many trials and tribulations and of course a spot of drag these two are as chummy as the rest of this list.
