Best Disney parent?

Personally, I think Marlin (Finding Nemo) is because he swam across the entire ocean just to find his son. Who do YOU think is the best Disney parent?

I have to agree with Marlin! My 2nd choice would be Mufasa. He really loved Simba. (such a tear jerker!)

I agree but I'd add Kala's from Tarzan. Biologically I know, I know he isn't hers per say but she was his parent & did a super job loving & raising him despite what everyone else in her group felt about it. She was a great mommy.

  • Maurice (Beauty and the Beast)
  • Sultan (Aladdin)
  • Triton (Little Mermaid)
  • Professor Porter (Tarzan)
  • Kala (Tarzan) - The only mom on the list. ^^;
I know I'm kinda cheating since most of them are from the Princess movies and fathers, but lemme tell you. The movies really make the parent characters great.

My 2yr old is in love with Princess Froggie, so I'm going to throw a vote to Eudora (just had to look up the spelling! Was gonna say Elanor!) for her sweetness and values.

Merida's mother Elinor in Brave. King triton in the Little Mermaid and Belle's father Maurice in beauty and the beast. I would also have to add Mufasa and Marlin

How about Nemo's mom! She died trying to save her kids, the ultimate sacrifice a parent can make. But just my opinion.

I think it is a toss up between Elinor (Merida's mom) and Aurora's mom for me.

How about the mother bunny in robin hood. I'm sorry anyone that can have that many kids at once deserves a meddel.

Best Disney Movie Parent

my thoughts....

King Triton gives up his daughter so she can be with her prince, he may never see her again but gives her legs again to be with him... sweet!!

i also think a close second is Tiana's father, he is the main inspiration in the film.

Don't forget Sarabi (Simba's mom). She went through losing her husband, losing her son, being controlled and starved by Scar, and then loved her son unconditionally even though it turned out he had been hiding the whole time and keeping the secret of his father's death all those years.

Also there are the Darlings, the mother was always very supportive of the kids' imaginations. The father may have been a strict one but he came through and ended up coming through at the end.

Also Mr. Banks. He was a stickler just like Mr. Darling but he realized his faults in the end and that he was a kid at heart.
