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 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.
ExamplesFilms — Live-Action
- In the film 9 to 5, Violet has an Imagine Spot like this.
- Another imagine spot in Fletch Lives.
- A Dream Sequence in The Beautician And The Beast is done in the Disney style.
- The Banner Saga has a distinct Disneyesque graphical style.
- College Humor has done this a fair number of times:
- "Colors of the Wind: Stoner Edition" (aka "Tokahontas").
- "DuckTales Theme Gone Horribly Wrong!". And by "Gone Horribly Wrong", they mean it.
- And "Pixar Logo Gone Horribly Wrong!" Again, they mean it.
- Prince Harry as a Disney Prince casts the UK Royal Family's Prince Harry as a Disney Prince, with predictable results: he's a stereotypical bro or chav in all the roles. Most humorously, he gets along with Gaston just swimmingly.
- "Aladdin's Mistake". At the end of Aladdin, Aladdin wishes for Genie to become human (not free), and he also does this just as Genie comes out of the lamp. As a result, Genie becomes a helpless mutant with a death wish.
- Rachel Bloom's Historically Accurate Disney Princess Song.
- As in the picture, Family Guy did this as one of several Alternate Universes Brian and Stewie visit in one episode, which included making Lois look like a Disney Princess.
- One episode of the Spawn animated series opened like this.
- Princess Clara (and anyone and anything related to her) from Drawn Together, as the show uses characters from different animation styles.
- Tex Avery's early Looney Tunes shorts aped the Disney style as closely as possible for the sake of parody.
- A Valentine's Day Episode of The Simpsons featured a Lady and the Tramp parody named "Shady and the Vamp". Although the characters were still drawn in the standard Simpsons style, the backgrounds were painted in the Disney style and the characters' lines were done in color.
- Early Chuck Jones shorts, such as those featuring Sniffles the Mouse, employed this.
- Adventures from the Book of Virtues looks pretty Disneyesque for a PBS cartoon.
- Tom and Jerry and The Wizard of Oz (2011) does this with the settings and characters derived from the latter film, but lets the T&J characters have their typical look.
- The Magic Adventures Of Mumfie, to the point that it gets mistaken for a Disney cartoon.
