Disney's gold standard for excellence in their media, films, shows and stories aren't just for the sake of being amazing; it's also translated into the shows themselves to make awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, stunning, thrills of the highest quality.

Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

  • Say what you will about Belle in these midquels, but "Stories" is an absolutely beautiful song to open with. The minimalist storybook visuals, coupled with Paige O'Hara's singing voice and lyrics that really aren't that bad, really make for something that could have been heard in an official animated movie. Not bad for half the budget of the original film.
    • Likewise, "As Long as There's Christmas" isn't half bad either. The duet sung by Angelique near the end is no slouch, as well.
  • The flashback to Adam's transformation into the Beast. Here, we have a fully drawn, beautifully-animated sequence of the day the castle's troubles began, and Kath Soucie brings a chilling elegance to the Enchantress that was only hinted at in the original.
  • How about Belle diving into icy water to save Chip from drowning? This might actually be more awesome than that time she elbowed Xaldin because, again, she is braving ice-cold, hypothermia-causing water in the middle of a dangerous, wolf-infested forest. The Beast likewise saving Belle from the same water is also this, though it's mitigated by the fact that Forte forced him into a Heroic BSoD beforehand, which results in the movie's Darkest Hour.
  • The Beast slowly getting over his Forte-indulged wangst and, little by little, getting fed up with Forte's half truths. It comes to a head when he attempts to bring the entire castle down on itself; the Beast just storms up to him and bellows "FORTE! ENOUGH!" Forte pissed off the Beast. You do not piss off the Beast.

The Tigger Movie

  • Tigger and Roo, who are falling on a boulder to their doom off a cliff during an avalanche, use the Whoopty-Dooper Loopty Looper Ally-Ooper Bounce to practically FLY back to safety.

Disney television

Buzz Lightyear of Star Command

  • From The Pilot Movie: Buzz and XR vs Agent Z. Both sides showing strength, trickery, accuracy and ruthlessness.
  • "Oh, no ya don't! Wanna see MY demonstration of centrifugal force?!"
  • This. Narm-y towards the end there, but still.

House of Mouse

  • In "Donald's Pumbaa Prank", Donald rescues Pumbaa when Pete stuffed him in the club's vent and is feeding him stinkbugs. Then, when it looks like Pumbaa's about to let loose a big fart and everyone has to evacuate, Donald bravely rushes out of the house with Pumbaa and takes the blow for everyone.
  • In "Everybody Loves Mickey", Mortimer is doing an open-mic performance that consists of him heckling Mickey (this after Mickey invited him to tell jokes to get him ti quit being a spoilsport.) Once Donald realizes that Mickey's attempts to cheer him up were sincere, he proceeds to go up on stage and tell Mortimer to can it with the jokes, even proudly proclaiming himself as Mickey's best friend. When Mortimer asks what he'll do, cue Donald grabbing him by the nose and throwing him out of the club. Donald definitely deserved the applause. Also a Heartwarming Moment to see Donald sticking up for his BFF.
  • In the House of Mouse Halloween special, Disney villains everywhere got one when they all teamed up to throw Mickey and Minnie out on the street, take over the House of Mouse, and turn it into their own personal nightclub. And they did it in song.
    • And the Mouse himself turns it back around in the climax by showing up in full Sorceror's Apprentice garb for a magical duel with Jafar. Just when all looks lost, Aladdin shows up with the lamp and Mickey imprisons Jafar within it.
  • The ending to the Goofy short "How To Be A Gentleman" (clip at 8:59), where he beats up the narrator with a club in response to his mocking him for leaving his pants behind. Also doubles as a Funny Moment.
  • Gaston is on a rampage with his "No One (verbs the noun) Like Gaston!" meme, and who should be the one to shut him down until the end of the episode, but Timon of all people:
    Gaston: No one makes faces in spoons like Gaston.
    Timon: Actually, no one asked the opinion of Gaston.
  • Jiminy Cricket pointing out the flaws of Disney's characters and features to the beat of "I'm No Fool". See it here!
    "There is nothing to see in the elephant graveyard. End of story."

Raw Toonage

  • Captain Hook got his CMOA when he had a swordfight with Don Karnage on Raw Toonage. And won.

Teamo Supremo

  • In the final episode, Captain Crandall's seemingly-imaginary superpowers actually show up right when the Gauntlet is thinking he has killed him and his teammates. Crandall then defeats the Gauntlet by shielding himself against an energy blast until the villain's power runs out.
