I was having The Discourse with some online friends, when the topic naturally turned to Disney, about the gender dynamics of it always having to be a man having to save a woman. (Mulan and Shang were brought up in passing.) however it got me wondering if there were other men in the Disney canon that exist purely to be rescued by the protagonist. For this I would nominate Geppetto, aside from carving the protagonist, and make the wish that the Blue Fairy acted upon, it seems his whole purpose in the film is to cause Pinocchio enough Man Pain to turn in to a real boy. What other Disney dudes fit the bill? either from the canon proper, or from the expanded Pixar/Marvel/Touchstone/Miramax universe?
