[[caption-width-right:246:[-So ''that's'' where [[ThemeTune "those good, old-fashioned values on which we used to rely"]] went.-] ]]

Any non-Disney work adopting an art style that is typical of the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, for the purpose of an {{Homage}}, AffectionateParody, or even a TakeThat, 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.
* Large round doe eyes.
* Outlines done in colors rather than black.
* [[DisneySchoolOfActingAndMime 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 ArtShift for a single scene. It can involve a character having a pleasant fantasy, even overlapping with DisneyCreaturesOfTheFarce or the RogerRabbitEffect.

{{Animesque}} is a SisterTrope... or might even be a SubTrope, depending on how much you take into account Creator/OsamuTezuka basing his style on the various Creator/WaltDisney works.

Contrast LimitedAnimation.

Not to be confused with {{Disneyfication}}, AllAnimationIsDisney (though it could easily lead to that), or being a FollowTheLeader to Disney films.

[[folder: Films -- Live-Action ]]
* Used in ''{{Film/Enchanted}}'', which opens with the sequences in Andalasia animated. Notably these scenes weren't done by the Disney animation wing, as that had shut down.
* In the film ''Film/NineToFive'', Violet has an ImagineSpot like this.
* Another imagine spot in ''Film/{{Fletch Lives}}''.
* A DreamSequence in ''Film/TheBeauticianAndTheBeast'' is done in the Disney style.

* Kimmy's happy place in ''Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmidt''.


[[folder: Video Games ]]

* ''VideoGame/TheBannerSaga'' has a distinct Disneyesque graphical style.
* The character models of ''VideoGame/FeralHeart'' are heavily influenced by Disney's FunnyANimal movies.


[[folder: Web Animation ]]

* ''Website/CollegeHumor'' has done this a fair number of times:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS-aerse5Ig Colors of the Wind: Stoner Edition]]" (aka "Tokahontas").
** "''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3KRQSpORW0 Theme Gone Horribly Wrong!]]". And by "GoneHorriblyWrong", they mean it.
** And "[[http://www.collegehumor.com/video/5635400/pixar-intro-parody Pixar Logo Gone Horribly Wrong!]]" Again, they mean it.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka8p7AfSdWM 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 [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]] just swimmingly.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhyLXlEti6s Aladdin's Mistake]]". At the end of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', Aladdin wishes for Genie to [[HumanityEnsues become]] ''[[HumanityEnsues 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.
** Creator/RachelBloom's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5wFS6Gnkk4 Historically Accurate Disney Princess Song]].

* ''Blog/UnshavedMouse'' discusses this when reviewing ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', noting that Disney had imposed their house style on lots of artists over the years, and the film itself was Walt Disney's attempts at breaking away from that style.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]

* As in the picture, ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' did this as one of several {{Alternate Universe}}s Brian and Stewie visit in one episode, which included making Lois look like a Franchise/DisneyPrincess.
* ''WesternAnimation/PrincessSissi'', a German cartoon very loosely based on Elisabeth of Bavaria, is drawn in this style to the point the titular character herself resembles [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Aurora]].
* One episode of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Spawn}}'' animated series opened like this.
* Princess Clara (and anyone and anything related to her) from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'', as the show uses characters from different animation styles.
* Creator/TexAvery's early ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts aped the Disney style as closely as possible for the sake of parody.
* One WesternAnimation/ScrewySquirrel'' cartoon has Screwy encountering a very Disneyesque little squirrel, who announces the cartoon will be about him "and all his cute furry friends" (a plot sounding suspiciously like Disney/{{Bambi}}), whereupon Screwy beats him up.
* A ValentinesDayEpisode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' featured a ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' 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. Disney animator Creator/EricGoldberg directed the CouchGag for the episode "Fland Canyon", where the Simpsons appear as various Disney characters. Again, drawn in the Simpsons style, but with much smoother animation. It also depicts the wide variety of art styles within the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, with Maggie done in the InkblotCartoonStyle of the early '30s and Homer as [[Disney/TheJungleBook Baloo]] in the sketchy Xerox style of the 1960s and '70s.
* Early Creator/ChuckJones shorts, such as those featuring Sniffles the Mouse, employed this.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresFromTheBookOfVirtues'' looks pretty Disneyesque for a PBS cartoon.
* ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry and Film/TheWizardOfOz'' (2011) does this with the settings and characters derived from the latter film, but lets the T&J characters have their typical look.
* For a brief period in the late 1940's at ''Creator/WalterLantz'' studio the shorts had a very Disneyesque style, this is because ''Creator/FredMoore'' a Disney animator worked there during the period he had been temporarily fired, Moore was largely credited for creating the Disney style, in his scenes ''WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker'' looked like a mix between Donald Duck and the Araucan Bird, ''WesternAnimation/AndyPanda'' looked like Mickey Mouse in a panda costume, and in the short "Pixie Picnic" several of the titular pixies looked a lot like the Seven Dwarfs.
* One of the complaints, Paul McCartney, has about the Beatles animated movie ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' was it's heavy the use of Psychedelic, PopArt and LimitedAnimation, since he's more a fan of Disney and the Disneyesque style.
* Ken Muse's scenes in his earlier work for ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' was very Disneyesque, he was a former Disney animator who left the studio after the strike and came to work at MGM.
