Adorkable / Animated Films

"Phffft! No, come on, Dad, he's so weird and awkward, it's like 'are you an idiot or do you know you're adorable?'"
Mavis, Hotel Transylvania

  • Alpha and Omega:
    • Humphrey. Especially during his interactions with Kate and his omega chums.
    • Humphrey's two omega buddies Shakey and Salty. Shakey for his cute appearance and tendency to trip up, and Salty whenever he attempts to flirt.
  • Arthur Christmas:
    • Bryony sometimes, like when she's getting excited about gift wrap.
    • The titular character Arthur is by no means elegant and worries about almost everything in a hysterical manner, but is an eternally cheery Nice Guy who wholeheartedly believes in the magic of Christmas.
  • Atlantis: The Lost Empire: Milo Thatch. 115 pounds of weapons-grade adorkable. He's so clumsy-cute, even a princess falls for him. He's voiced by Michael J. Fox, which helps. Early on, Helga lampshades it.
    Helga: Cartographer, linguist, plumber... Hard to believe he's still single.
  • Balto: Star is a small, meek, timid Butt Monkey with an adorably awkward personality who gets kicked around by Nikki and Kaltag, and whacked in some shape or form anytime he says one thing.
  • Beauty and the Beast:
    • The Beast at times during his more awkward moments. Belle spells out what Adorkable is in her song "Something There".
      Belle: There's something sweet, and almost kind ... but now he's dear, and so unsure.
    • Belle's father. Specifically his face after a hunk of wood clonks him when it's thrown from his chopping machine.
  • Big Hero 6:
    • Hiro Hamada. Clumsy, awkward, messy haired and loves to build robots. Instant out-of-universe fangirling. The slight gap in his teeth only adds to his charm.
    • Baymax behaves rather goofily sometimes, such as the famous soccer ball scene. He also has a tendency to state the obvious, and also things Hiro would rather be kept secret.
    Hiro: If my aunt asks, we were at school all day. Got it?
    Baymax: We jumped out a window!
    Hiro: No! Quiet! Shhh!
    Baymax: (whispering) Shhh! We jumped out a window!
    • Wasabi is a lovable, muscular, Science Hero who's also a complete neatnik.
    • Honey Lemon. Her character descriptions describe her as "peppy" and "goofy". Then there's her geeky physique, and the almost childlike glee with which she demonstrates her "chemical metal embrittlement".
    • Fred is self-proclaimed "science enthusiast" and has an obsession with comic book heroes and villains.
    • Tadashi Hamada. Best proven when seen on Baymax's screen of how happy he is after finally activating Baymax (after 84 tries), prompting him to run around and kiss Baymax.
  • The Book of Life:
    • Manolo Luis Sanchez. Either when he's serenading Maria or whatever humorous catastrophe befalls him
    • Joaquin Emilio Mondragon Jr. crosses into this territory when he's thinking about Maria or talking about his cool mustache.
  • A Bug's Life: Flik, of the 'socially awkward and yet adorably sweet'-inventor variety.
  • Chicken Little: The title character. Being voiced by Zach Braff adds to the dorky cuteness.
  • Cinderella III: A Twist in Time has stepsister Anastasia become into one of these. She acts awkward when speaking to Prince Charming, occasionally gets excited, and is a bit of a klutz.
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs:
    • Sam Sparks, once she dons her glasses and embraces her love of meteorology.
    • Flint Lockwood is pretty adorkable, especially when it comes to science and Sam. He's the stereotypical socially-awkward geek who wants to be accepted.
  • Corpse Bride: Victor Van Dort. He's extremely clumsy and socially awkward during the wedding rehearsal as he can't speak up or put a ring on Victoria's finger without embarrassing himself. Victor Van Dort? More like Victor Van Dork. However, both Victoria and Emily find him irresistible and fall for him immediately.
  • Coraline: Wyborne "Wybie" Lovat stutters while speaking, is friends with a cat, and is a nice guy in general
  • Despicable Me:
    • The Minions are 10,400 cuddly, accident-prone, small, and yellow humanoids that you want to hug all day, to the point they became Breakout Characters.
    • Margo gains some tendencies in the sequel when she gets her first crush. Much of her behavior around him is so awkward it's impossible not to love.
    • Gru becomes this when he uses some youth lingo or when he's around Lucy.
    • The sequel gives this trope in Lucy Wilde. She's an energetic, fast-talking nice girl.
  • The Emperor's New Groove:
  • The Fox and the Hound: Tod whenever he's around Vixey. When the two first meet, he goes up to her not having a clue what to say. All he does is smile sheepishly and ask her for her name. He also tries to impress her by saying he can catch a fish. What does he end up doing? Failing of course in the most hilarious way. He also makes up with her over a small argument by giving her a flower. And he doesn't understand what she means when she says six would be just perfect. Ta
  • Frozen:
    • Anna is very clumsy and says awkward things, but she is so nice and plucky that these traits only add to her charm.
    • The majority of humor provided by Olaf's dorky antics. Singing a song about summer and how he can't wait to see it while not knowing he'll melt, saying awkwardly silly things pretty much every time he talks, and his catchphrase "I like warm hugs" that he says every time he meets someone. Is there anymore that needs to be said?
    • Hans was essentially just as plucky, awkward, and goofy as Anna whenever he was around her. Then he reveals his true nature.
    • Elsa when she's excited about Anna's birthday celebration in Frozen Fever and she squeals with excitement at several points.
    • Kristoff. Such as when he subs the words for Sven, or when he falls for Anna. This is to show that he's generally this in private as well as around humans.
    • Sven is this when you Mix in his clumsiness, love for carrots, and facial expressions.
  • A Goofy Movie:
    • Max and Roxanne, the Birds of a Feather who stutter and stammer and behave awkwardly around each other. Max is Goofy's son and this shows up in his clumsiness and laugh as well.
    • But lineage is not the end-all be-all: Max's Fat Best Friend PJ (aka Pete's son) has a baby face, a shy and anxious personality that's even more awkward than Max's, and a voice that hasn't changed—and, as is revealed in the sequel, never did.
    • From An Extremely Goofy Movie we have Sylvia Marpole who tries to hide it. But the slightest prodding at her nerdier side brings it out full force.
  • The Great Mouse Detective: Could briefly be used to describe Basil after Olivia's My Parents Are Dead moment. He gets very awkward and tongue-tied before snapping back to his usual self. There's also the scene where he's awkwardly trying to cheer up Dawson. "I say...Dawson, old chap?" with a nervous smile.
  • Happy Feet: Mumble dances whenever he's excited, and you can never forget his obvious love for Gloria.
  • Hercules: Hercules, Especially as a kid. His awkwardness is the contrast between his earnest desire to help and his clumsiness.
  • Home:
    • Tip. She’s a big nerd. The whole "teaching Oh jokes" solidifies her as one. She also proudly tells Oh that she got an A in geometry.
    • Oh is goofy, clumsy, and has weird speech patterns.
  • Hotel Transylvania
    • As the above quote suggests, Johnny qualifies. He's an American surfer-dude backpacker klutz who tends to ramble about random anecdotes from his travels, geeks out over the monsters (once he's through being terrified of them), is quite considerate of the feelings of others, and is a hopeless romantic.
    • Mavis gets quite giddy at the prospect of traveling the world or thinking about Jonathan. She even shows more of this trait in the sequel. When she is on a trip with Johnny, she is so perky and excitable about seeing things she's never seen before. She even thinks she's on national television when she's standing in front of a security camera in a corner store right after trying every single slurpy flavor!
    • Dracula is a huge utterly sweet dork as a father, and later as a grandfather. In the second film he is completely clueless to the human lifestyle, can barely figure out how to use a cell phone, and tries in vain to to teach Dennis how to be a "real vampire".
  • How to Train Your Dragon: Hiccup. In contrast to Testosterone Poisoned fellow Vikings, he's a scrawny snarky young teen who tries so hard to be tough like them but can't.
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Quasimodo's glee and following awkwardness at the Festival of Fools is comparable to a 20th century teenager at a schooldance.
  • Ice Age:
    • Manny, primarily in the second note  and thirdnote  movies.
    • Louis the little molehog from Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. He's a shy little hedgehog with Puppy-Dog Eyes who everyone calls a weiner..
  • Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure: The two protagonists from the first movie's son, Scamp. He's a troublemaker, wants a "better" life, and is a big dork whenever he's around Angel. He tries to impress her and be like one of the junkyard dogs but always ends up embarrassing himself.
  • The LEGO Movie: Emmet is a cheery guy who's most original thought is of a "double-decker couch" (So that way everyone can hang out together and be buddies!), acts like a stool when told to be silent like a stool, and he totally geeks out when he meets Batman.
  • The Little Mermaid:
    • Ariel when she's human and on dry land for the first time. She takes in everything with an almost contagious amount of childish curiosity and wonderment. And who could forget the scene when she tried to comb her hair with a fork?
    • The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea features Ariel's daughter Melody, mainly due to her awkwardness as a teenager.
    • Flounder, the cowardly talking fish. He's cute and beautifully coloured in blue and yellow.
  • Madagascar: Melman is the lovable scatterbrain of the foursome. This becomes a main subplot point in Escape 2 Africa
  • Megamind': Megamind, notable especially when he's disguised as Bernard and one of his most relatable, lovable traits. Just watch one scene and you'll see.
  • Monsters University:
    • Randall Boggs. He's cheerful but nervous, wears huge purple Nerd Glasses, and thinks baked goods are the way to win over the cool kids.
    • Squishy. He still lives with his mother and wishes on ladybugs.
    • Mike Wazowski. His eager and peppy attitude during his first days at university really makes you love the little guy.
  • Mulan:
    • Li Shang, despite his undeniable masculinity, briefly qualifies.. His interaction with Mulan after defeating Shan-Yu has him stammering and not knowing what to say to her.
    • Mulan herself, ''especially' when she's trying to fit in with the guys. Or even when she's practicing by herself to fit in with the guys. The fact that in battle, she's an utter badass, and that she's overall very determined and intelligent only enhances the charm of her goofier moments.
  • Mr. Peabody & Sherman: Sherman is perhaps one of the best examples as his nerdy appearance, innocence, and clumsiness really take the cake.
  • Rango: The title character. Or as appealing as his character design would allow, anyway. Appearance aside, he is ditzy, awkward, nervous, adorable, cuddly sunshine in a bag.
  • Ratatouille: Linguini. He has clumsy mannerisms, gets distracted around Colette, and is a master of buffy speak.
  • Rio: Blu is obvious(and given that he's voiced by Jesse Eisenberg, that is to be expected). He's awkward, polite, and quite clumsly. The best ways to describe this trope all in one package.
  • Tangled:
    • Flynn Rider (or Eugene Fitzherbert) is a Deadpan Snarker, Butt Monkey, gets pushed around by a hot girl half his size? An orphan who reinvented himself after his favourite literary character? That's weapons-grade adorkable right there.
    • Rapunzel has a bit of an overbite, she lisps when she talks at times, hides in her hair during the song "Mother Knows Best" when afraid, Genki Girl, she's overall naive, very pretty and downright adorably Moe.
  • Tarzan:
    • Tarzan acts like a cute dork whenever he's confronted with something from the human world.
    • Jane is a nerdy, bookish, and awkward, but that just serves to make her more endearing.
    • Tantor is a huge, sweet elephant who's scared of almost everything.
  • The Thief and the Cobbler: Tack, the titular cobbler, with his awkward pose, muteness and ridiculously pale skin.
