Disney Animals List: MarsupialsΒ 

Marsupials. What are they?? Some people don’t really know. So, here’s its definition…

Marsupial— noun:

Any viviparous, non-placental mammal of the order Marsupiala, comprising the opossums, kangaroos, wombats, and bandicoots, the females of most species having a marsupium containing the mammary glands and serving as a receptacle for the young.

Or in other words……

These animals have pouches to grow & protect their young in. There, now we all know!

Anyways….

Here is a complete list of Disney & Pixar Animated Marsupials! We will start with movies all the way in the beginning. There are a few movies I never saw in the early 2000s (I know, it’s crazy) so if there’s animals from them I missed, please comment & tell me! I will not be offended. But on all the other classics and such, I know what I’m doing. πŸ˜‰ So here we go!

1) Mamma Kangaroo & Joey- Dumbo (1941). Yes, we saw our first Disney Marsupial in this circus classic. It’s quite adorable too! The kangaroo just got her baby from the stork. Pretty cute!

2) Mama Possum & Babies- Bambi (1942). Ok, I know it’s technically called an opossum, but I only found some of these guys under this spelling. So grammar back then lacked a little haha. In Bambi, we meet these cuties hanging upside down in a tree. I love how Bambi reacts too. So fun!

3) Mama Opossum- Song of the South (1946). I almost missed this one! This Mom shows how she carried her babies. She’s also on the ride Splash Mountain.

4) Kanga & Roo – The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977). We finally got to meet Kanga & little Roo. Gotta love these two! It was quite a gap between movies featuring a marsupial. Of course, these two featured in later Pooh movies. This includes The Tigger Movie (2000), Pilglet’s Big Movie (2003), Pooh’s Heffalump Movie (2005), & of course the funniest of all– the NEW Winnie The Pooh (2011). Roo himself was a main character in both The Tigger Movie & Pooh’s Heffalump Movie. Of course, the Tigger Movie was my favorite!

5) Wombats- The Rescuers Down Under (1990). WOW! What a gap! In one of my favorite movies, we see little wombats in the very beginning. Fun fact: this is the ONLY Disney movie that has Wombats in it. Aren’t they cute?!

6) Faloo & Jake- The Rescuers Down Under (1990). These are some kangaroos we see in this movie. Faloo, a female kangaroo in the wild calls Cody to save Marahoote. Later, we see Jake, a male kangaroo who’s been captured by McLeach. I bet that Faloo is Jake’s mate. Or maybe siblings. What do you think??

7) Krebbs- The Rescuers Down Under (1990). This koala is SO FUNNY! He’s clearly an older guy who knows how being captured tends to go. But I love how he makes fun of Frank. “Frank will go as……. a purse. Oh a lovely ladies purse!” ROTFL every time.

8) Lester’s Possum Park- A Goofy Movie (1995). As Goofy & Max go on their road trip, they stop at this place. It’s all about Possums. Singing possums, dancing possums, even possum hats. Just like Max, we weren’t impressed.

9) David Koalabell- Zootopia (2016). David Koalabell is one of the news anchors in Zootopia. Now, some of you are probably thinking, wait there was only a moose & a snow leopard. What Koala is she talking about?! Well, in different countries, Disney had different news anchors. That’s pretty unique! Here are the 4 different ones below:

That’s it, not even 10 marsupial Disney characters. There aren’t even any Tasmanian Devils. What’s up with that Disney?! Hopefully they will give us more soon.

Thanks for reading! These Animated lists are fun to make. In case you missed them, here are my other Disney lists so far:

Why

I’m so tired of the same feeling when I wake up.

Why can’t I stop dreaming about this? About you or things that have never happened?!

Am I cursed because I met you or because of some other mistake I made long ago? If I’m not cursed, am I blessed with visions of the future?

It certainly doesn’t feel like it.

When I wake up from a dream with you, or people who’ve passed in it, I feel happy when my eyes open. But once my mind brings me back to now, I’m sad or angry. I just want to close my eyes and disappear; disappear right back into that dream.

“It’s not finished”, I tell myself with my eyes barely open. “It can’t end there, I don’t want it to.”

No matter how hard I try, I can’t slip back into that state of mind.

No matter how hard I try, I can’t say that I’m done with you.

We hadn’t even started yet…

Now you know, this isn’t about who you all figured it was. It’s two people, and one is not that guy.

Sure, one is a guy. The other is family, and I can’t shake her either.

When she’s in my dreams, I awake with feelings of joy, only to have them crushed by tears of sadness in waves of pain.

When he’s in my dreams, I awake with butterflies that I never wanted to end. Those butterflies are replaced with a lump in my throat & frustration. A big piece of heartache that will never end. I didn’t even get to see how it felt. We didn’t even try.

Maybe this is telling me your not good for me. Maybe it’s all a lie. Or maybe it’s all in my head and that’s why I cry.

Either way, this is why my dreams keep me awake, everyday.

“Is this what it feels like to really cry??”- Kelly Clarkson

“Drown Out my dreams. Keep me from remembering whatever wants me to remember it.”- The Last Unicorn

Editorials

Hi everyone!

I recently wrote a two page editorial for a family member’s new business. They talked to a local magazine & were able to get the slot for an ad with a free space for an editorial in January’s issue. The magazine is Equine & Canine News. My local Californians may have heard of it.

Anyways, I wrote it & I just found out this week that it has gotten over 6,000 views/reads! I’m so excited! Not just for me, but for my family too. I’ve been helping them run their new Instagram for their shop & advertise some too. This was just one more thing they asked me to do and I’m very proud of it!

If anyone wishes to read it, it is on the website Equine & Canine News and just click the menu option “current issue”. The editorial is on page 5 for the SLO County business called EQ-Wine Covers Co. If anyone wants to visit the shop after reading, all the details are in their ad in the editorial!

I’m super excited about this & I’m really feeling like me again; I know I can write, but I love to edit. I haven’t had a chance to do something outside of blogging for a while now. And this has boosted my self esteem which has been low this past year. Even with job promotions & success like this, it’s hard to be positive lately when I’m so lonely.

Thank you everyone for the support & for following my blog!! I couldn’t have done it without this blog coming first. Maybe there will be more editorials in my future… who knows?!

Disney Animals List: Bears

Bears. They aren’t everywhere, but they are cool animals! Disney has always made great cartoons that we’ve all grown up with. So how many of these classics have a bear or two in them?? Well let’s find out in this list of Disney Animated Bears! Yes, it’s another Animated Animals List.

Sadly, the Country Bears from Disneyland are not in this list. However, this does include Pixar movies. There are a few movies I never saw in the early 2000s (I know, it’s crazy) so if there’s animals from them I missed, please comment & tell me! I will not be offended. But on all the other classics and such, I know what I’m doing. πŸ˜‰ So here we go!

1) Mama Brown Bear & Cubs- Dumbo (1941). That’s right folks, the first bears we saw in Disney movies wasn’t until Dumbo. It was super cute though! I love how surprised she was to get two cubs. THAT’S LOVE!

2) Br’er Bear- Song of the South (1946). Yes, part of the famous characters that most of us know from the Disneyland ride, Splash Mountain. Not gonna lie, in all the pictures I tried to find, he looks a little dim-witted. Then again, it was a film that was very time-sensitive. We have to remember the era this movie was from… excuse the tiny picture!

3) Neverland Bear- Peter Pan (1953). That’s quite a gap! The next Bear was only seen for a little bit. He appears when the lost boys are singing Following the Leader. It’s cute, he thinks that Michael’s Teddy bear is an actual cub. Lol

4) Baloo- The Jungle Book (1967). Yup, we jumped 10 plus years & got the famous Baloo the bear of the jungle. He really is the best. And any animal voiced by Phil Harris at this point beats all the rest. #bearnecessities

5) Little John- Robin Hood (1973). Another great one! A bear as Robin Hood’s sidekick. I’ve noticed that Disney liked pairing bears & foxes together in teams. I wonder why…

6) Bear in Nottingham- Robin Hood (1973). Yes, there’s another bear. He’s small and we only see him when he’s cheering on Robin in the tournament. He still counts.

7) Pooh Bear- The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977). Who doesn’t love Winnie the Pooh?! He’s adorable, all stuffed with fluff…. silly old bear. I also love him in the remake they did in 2011.

8) Evil Black Bear- The Fox & the Hound (1981). It’s time.. the movie that made us all cry, gives us THE most evil bear. This thing literally came out of nowhere. Look at his eyes, their red! And the drool… PURE EVIL!

9) Mama Bear & Cubs- Pocahontas (1995). We all know the scene: John Smith goes to shot the bear, & Pocahontas stopped him WHILE SINGING, & shows him her cubs. Gotta love Colors of the Wind.

10) Panda Bear- Mulan (1998). Mushu uses this guy as his method of transportation while dressed as a soldier telling them they are needed at the front. “What’s the matter, never seen a black & white before?” LOL I love this movie and I almost forgot about this!

11) Thief Bear/Koda’s Mom- Brother Bear (2003). I’m presenting her first because she’s the first Bear we actually see in this movie. And by the way, this movie is why I’m doing this list. It’s one of my favorite movies! And the end when Koda see’s his mom as a spirit…. {sniffles}… I can’t. watch. without. CRYING MY EYES OUT! Can you?!

12) Kenai- Brother Bear (2003). Kenai turns into a bear, and stays one. He didn’t even have to! I like him better as a bear tbh. Kenai changed in this movie in more ways than one, and that’s a great storyline. It’s sad that he did stupid things but he’s forgiven in the end. It’s all about love! Just like his totem.

13) Koda- Brother Bear (2003). Koda is THE cutest little bear cub whom Kenai meets after turning into a bear. Little did Kenai know that he was the reason Sitka turned him; Kenai killed Koda’s mom. Sad, but at least there was a happy ending!

14) Salmon Run Bears- Brother Bear (2003). Here at the Salmon Run are TONS of bears. So here are a few of their names that I could find….

Tug- Who is clearly the biggest bear there, is also pretty chill. This black bear obviously knows Koda well & is the favorite of the group.

Hippie Bear- “Hey, you’re stirring the water dude.” That’s his one line & he looks like he has blonde hair. Haha

Old Lady Bear- She thinks her husband Edgar is dead… “Quit telling everyone I’m dead!”

Foreign Bear- Speaks foreign Bear language. Nobody understands him but apparently his story is funny!

Bear Cubs- We don’t have names, but they are everywhere! So cute!

New Bear Couple- Two teen-ish bears who just met, and they already love each other. Pretty funny play on a summer romance.

And of course there are a million other bears that don’t have specific traits we see. After all it is the Salmon Run!

15) City Bears- Chicken Little (2005). Yes, there are bears in the city. You see them in the beginning during all the chaos. But that’s about it, none are main characters.

16) Nita- Brother Bear 2 (2006). Yup, there was a Brother Bear 2. And Nita is a human who loves Kenai & turns into a bear to be with him in the end. It’s pretty cute!

17) Lotso Huggin Bear- Toy Story 3 (2010). Lotso is a stuffed animal who looks nice & cuddly–he even smells good–but really isn’t. He runs the toys in Sunnyside Daycare. And his backstory is sad too.

18) Mor’du- Brave (2012). Mor’du is an evil bear who turns out used to be a prince. He attacks King Fergus and took his leg off. King Fergus plans on killing the beast & it’s “one dead eye.” I love the scene when the King is telling the story. Another interesting thing is how he asked for the same spell as Merida for himself. It was cool to see his spirit as a human when he died, it was like he was thanking them for being released.

19) Queen Elenor- Brave (2012). True, she isn’t truly a bear, but she turns into one AND Disney/Pixar did a great job making us all cry at the end; making us think she was going to stay a bear forever. Thankfully, she doesn’t. She was a pretty bear though.

20) Merida’s Brothers: Hamish, Hubert & Harris- Brave (2012). “We devils more like.” They ate the cake and turned into bear cubs. SO CUTE! And hilarious. Gotta love it….

21) Mr. Big’s Polar Bears- Zootopia (2016). Mr. Big has Polar bears as his “body guards”. Two of them have names that we know, Raymond & Kevin. There are other polar bears we see in this film as well.

22) Bears- Zootopia (2016). There are plenty other bears in this city as well. This includes one that we see that’s been turned “savage”. There are black bears and brown bears, that’s the most we see.

That’s it! Barely 20 bears so far! I’m sure if we counted all the bears in Brother Bear & even Zootopia individually, we’d be at almost 30. Still, this is quite a bit over the years. Gotta love Disney!

Spirit: One of Dreamwork’s Best Movies


Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

I love this movie! It’s historical, funny, and a great story!

I have always thought this movie was amazing. If you haven’t seen it, you need to! The artwork/animation is amazing & it’s got a great storyline. Sure it’s a kids movie, but what’s wrong with that? Dreamworks really outdid themselves with this one.

This film is set in the Wild West before it was settled. Railroads were still being built! Spirit is a wild mustang who we see grow up & take charge of his heard. Sadly, he gets separated by who? Humans. Along the way, he meets Army men, Native Americans, & his love, Rain. Rain is a pinto who lives with the natives. I truly love that they had the narration of Spirit & his thoughts. They didn’t make him talk, just the humans. Not that animals talking is bad, I do love Disney! Lol but this was a nice change & made it feel more realistic. 


This movie may be historical, but it does still get a somewhat happy ending. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for those uncultured swines whom haven’t seen it. πŸ˜‰ This entire film is fun, cute, intense, & beautiful of course. This film came out in 2002 and I’ve loved it ever since.


Another thing I love is the soundtrack. It’s perfect in so many ways!! And it gives you that country vibe for sure. *Fun fact: if you walk into Disney’s California Adventure & go into the area with Soarin’ & the start if the woodlands,  you can hear the main theme song from the Spirit soundtrack!! Mind= BLOWN! It’s not even Disney’s movie but it goes so well in that area.

Above all, this film is very good, one of the best of its kind. It gives you a feeling that makes you wanna go outside, ride a horse or even go camping. It gets better for kids…..

Netflix now has a series based off this movie! It’s centered around a little girl who moves to a country town. She meets this mustang & the two become inseparable (which is similar to what happened in the movie with him & the natives). My family is stoked, and your kids can be too! It uses newer animation but it’s still that same horse! Check it out! I really hope they bring in Rain at some point though… 

New Things Coming Soon….

Boy have I been busy! I’ve gotten a new job, a promotion (already!), going on vacations & living dramatic joys of the single life. Crazy right?!

Well, I’m just doing a quick post letting my followers know that I’m going to be adding more blogs very soon. Here are some to look out for in the next few months:

A movie review (it’s not a new movie but one I love)….

Another Disney Character Backstory (or two πŸ˜‰ )…..

Possibly a post with Disneyland pictures I recently took….

And maybe one other surprise one, I haven’t decided if I actually want to post it yet. 

Thank you for staying with me! I haven’t forgotten how to blog, I’ve just had a crazy life lately. Lol

Calling You….

I’m in a music lyrics kind of mood tonight….


Most of you may have never heard this song before. You should look it up! But sadly it’s not on iTunes. I know, lame right?! 

That’s right, I downloaded it elsewhere and got it to work on my iTunes & iPod. It was even a free download! This song is on old song by miss Celine Dion! So here are the lyrics of the beginning & chorus (which repeats often) and seriously, listen to it somewhere. It’s beautiful!

Calling You

A desert road from Vegas to nowhere…

Someplace better than where you’ve been.

A coffee machine that needs a little fixing in a little cafe just around the bend.


I am calling you!

I know you hear me….

I…. I am calling you….


This song seriously describes how I feel right now. I’m tired of lack of communication everywhere I turn…. uh.

Thanks for reading! This was a short one but that’s ok!
