Basically any non-Disney work adopting an art style that is typical of the Disney Animated Canon, for the purpose of an Homage, Affectionate Parody, or even a Take That, to the Disney style.

Well at least the stereotypical style is adopted. Regardless of the actual variety of the art in the the Disney films, many people think that all Disney films have the same general look, with traits such as:
  • Soft lines, roundness, doe eyes.
  • Outlines done in colors rather than black.
  • Very smooth animation in every movement.
  • Only one tonal layer applied with a gaussian blur in compositing.

This can appear in a TV show, a comic book, or a feature length film; and it doesn't matter if this style lasts through the entire work or is just an Art Shift for a single scene. It can involve a character having a pleasant fantasy, even overlapping with Disney Creatures of the Farce.

Animesque is a Sister Trope... or might even be a Sub-Trope, depending on how much you take into account Osamu Tezuka basing his style on the various Disney works.

Not to be confused with All Animation Is Disney, nor being a Follow the Leader to Disney films.
