Minnie Mouse2 of 11
The original Disney ingénue was this bloomers-donning mouse. Along with her main squeeze Mickey, she’s not only an iconic and beloved cartoon, but we do believe she has helped change the perception of rodents as pests worldwide.
Fairy Godmother3 of 11
Who wouldn’t want a woman who could bippity-boppity-boo you into a princess for a night (not to mention make your whole life better…)?
Duchess4 of 11
This feline heroine of The Aristocats made everybody want to be a cat, to reference the famous song from the film. Ever the lady, her character was voiced by the legendary Eva Gabor.
Wendy5 of 11
Any sister who can successfully take care of her younger brothers without losing her temper should get a medal, but this Disney heroine not only showed stellar child-handling skills, she could also hold her own against both Peter Pan and the ever-crafty Tinkerbell.
Mary Poppins6 of 11
This original super-nanny gave babysitters a hard act to follow. And her wisdom was even applicable in real life: A spoonful of sugar totally does help the medicine go down.
Pollyanna7 of 11
One of the most beloved, and optimistic, kids’ book characters came to life on the big screen in the ’60s, compliments of Disney.
Belle8 of 11
While most Disney princesses from the ’80s and ’90s relied on a prince to rescue them, this heroine stood out from the rest by being a self-educated bookworm. And, in the end, she rescues her prince from his beastly curse, and they live happily ever after … partially because, we imagine, Belle gets to hole up in his extensive library.
Mulan9 of 11
Another against-the-grain princess was this brave chick who cut her sleek mane in order to pass as a boy and ultimately saved the day. (We love you, Ariel, but we know you would have never parted with your luscious red locks.)
Winnie Sanderson10 of 11
Sure, she and her sisters in the 1993 film Hocus Pocus were a bit evil, but come on, how often do you see a witch who flies by vacuum cleaner rather than broom?
Giselle11 of 11
Watching this animated princess come to life in Enchanted — and in New York City no less — was an absolute delight (and actress Amy Adams was just lovely in this movie).
