8 Supporting Cartoon Characters That Deserve Their Own Movies

For the last several decades kids have grown up watching their favorite Disney and Pixar movies, falling in love with the characters as the trials and tribulations of their lives play out on the screen. Most of the time the protagonist gets all of the limelight, but they wouldn’t be half of what they are without the supporting characters helping the story along. With that being said, there are definitely some of these supporting characters that deserve their own spin-off movies.

Let’s take a look at 8 of these characters that I would absolutely take my children to the theaters to see take center stage.

Rex is such a lovable character from the Toy Story franchise. His manic personality and unique sense of humor make him one of the more important secondary characters from the series. Imagine where the toys would be if they didn’t have Rex’s pointy tail around to help them escape the garbage bag on route to the end of the driveway.

I have had to sit through the movie Tangled more times than I can count, I virtually know the characters lines by heart. One of the greatest aspects of the movie is Rapunzel’s silent pet chameleon Pascal. He is hilarious and seems to be one of the smarter characters from the movie. One question that was never answered was how Pascal and Rapunzel came to be such close friends? I can see an epic story coming out of that.

Dug is one of the most hilariously written characters in the Disney Pixar universe. He fits perfectly into the story being told in Up, and realistically his jovial and fun loving personality would fit well in any type of story. Frankly, I am surprised that more hasn’t already been done with the character, kids love him.

The concept behind this movie is truly breathtaking, and even I loved sitting down to watch it. One of the best secondary characters appears when we are introduced to Riley’s imaginary friend Bing Bong. He is one of the few characters who exists both inside and outside of Riley’s mind, and he is the true hero of the story once he sacrifices himself to ensure that Joy escapes from the Memory Dump. Let’s see a stand alone Bing Bong movie!

10 Animated Characters Who Are Based On Real People

Does art imitate life, or life imitate art? In this case, it’s most likely the former.

Take a look at 10 famous cartoon or movie characters who were based on other people.

French professional wrestler Maurice Tillet was known as “the freak ogre of the ring” in the ’40s. He suffered from a condition that caused his bones to thicken more than the average man.

Frank “Rocky” Fiegel was the real Popeye. Rocky became the sole inspiration for this iconic comic strip character that can still be found on Popeye candy sticks. Rocky, like Popeye, loved to smoke pipes and get into fistfights.

Perhaps it’s not a surprise to learn that the original Dennis “The Menace” was based off of cartoonist Hank Ketcham’s son, Dennis Lloyd Ketcham.

Unfortunately, magical fairies don’t exist. The iconic Disney version of Tinker Bell was inspired by actress Margaret Kerry.

The inspiration for our favorite male red-headed cartoon character came from teen comedian Mickey Rooney. Rooney played the fictional character of Andy Hardy in the Andy Hardy movie series from the ’30s. Andy is similar to Archie, in the sense that both characters somehow attracts girls who are way out of their league.
