Go To

Donald Duck

Voiced by: Tony Anselmo

  • The Apprentice: To Noah
  • Animated Actor: Mainly in the commentary for the segment, where he accidentally brings in the entire Ark's worth of animals and the flood with them into the booth.
  • Butt-Monkey: Repeatedly hurt for our viewing amusement: poked, stomped, flung against objects, dragged backward through gears. Good old Donald.

Daisy Duck

Voiced by: Russi Taylor

  • Women Are Wiser: It doesn't take much to be wiser than Donald Duck, but she's also better at the job Noah gave Donald.

Minnie Mouse

Voiced by: Russi Taylor

  • The Cameo: Only appears in the audio commentary for the Sorcerer's Apprentice to pick up Mickey after his commentary with Roy Disney.

Yo Yo Flamingo/"Our Hero"

A Flamingo from the "Carnival of the Animals" segment. He plays with a yo-yo.
  • Advertised Extra: Was featured heavily in trailers and merchandise, but his segment is probably the shortest in the film.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All of the Snooty Flamingos have reddish pink feathers and black beaks. The one with the yo-yo is a brighter shade of pink and has a purple beak.
  • Feather Fingers: Double subverted; he uses his feet instead of his wings to handle the first yo-yo, but later uses his wings to handle more of them.
  • Killer Yoyo: Kind of? His yo-yo isn't exactly dangerous, but it does cause a lot of grief to his snooty adversaries.
  • Screwy Squirrel: Loves to play tricks on the Snooty flamingos. Their annoyance at him implies that he bugs them a lot.
  • Advertisement:
  • Shown Their Work: Many of the tricks he does with his yo yo are actual yo yo tricks. You can even see him doing Cat's Cradle and Walk The Dog!
  • The Wacky Guy: He's like a Looney Tunes character who got lost and ended up in a Disney movie by accident.

Snooty Flamingos/"The Snooty Six"

  • Butt-Monkey: They bear the brunt of Yo Yo's antics.
  • Jerks
  • Kick the Dog: Okay, the Yo Yo Flamingo got on their nerves, but did that really warrant them trying to drown the guy?
  • Near-Villain Victory: They manage to stamp the Yo Yo Flamingo into the water and get rid of his yo-yo. He immediately emerges with a whole collection of yo-yos.
  • Smug Snakes: Not only do they keep going after Yo Yo when he's repeatedly trounced them at every turn but they never account for the possibility that he has more than one yo-yo to play with.
  • Advertisement:
  • Villain by Default: They're snobs and huge jerks to the Yo Yo Flamingo, but that's about as bad as they get.

Spring Sprite

  • Big Good: Against the Firebird's Big Bad, she seems a very dominant force of nature in a positive way, whereas the Firebird enforces nature's power in the negative way. In the alternate ending, she even becomes the sun (or perhaps sunlight).
  • Break the Cutie...and very nearly Kill the Cutie
  • Fertile Feet: And hands, and fingers...everything.
  • Heroic BSoD: After the Firebird attacks, she sinks into somewhat of a visual depression.

The Stag

A male deer that acts somewhat as the deuteragonist of The Firebird Suite
  • Badass Adorable: Quite adorable and was capable of surviving both the volcanic eruption and the firebird's rampage.
  • The Lancer: For the Spring Sprite, helping her back onto her feet and assisting the renewal of life after the eruption.

The Firebird

  • Adaptational Villainy: The Firebird of the original ballet the song originated from was actually a helpful creature that aided a prince to defeat an evil wizard. This Firebird on the other hand is a creature of pure destruction.
  • Ax-Crazy: Being a personification of death and destruction, this comes naturally.
  • Animalistic Abomination: It's really just a mass of lava that is usually shaped like a bird.
  • Blob Monster: The Firebird is an amorphous mass of lava, a trait which it uses to its advantage. For example, it tries to devour the nature spirit first from ground level and then ambushes her from the top of a cliff a couple of seconds later, manifesting its head both times.
  • Breath Weapon: Breathes lava blasts upon being awakened.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Whereas Chernabog has at least some identifiable motive and has a generally defined form, the Firebird is little more than a chaotic force of nature appearing as a jumble of flame and lava in the loose form of a bird.
  • Elemental Embodiment: Of fire.
  • Enemy Rising Behind: Does this to the Nature Sprite.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the Nature Sprite; she embodies life and nurturing of the world, while the Firebird brings only destruction and death. The commentary prior to his segment acknowledges this by calling it "a tale of life, death, and renewal," with the sprite representing life and the Firebird representing death.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: He is made out of fire
  • Eye Awaken: Combines with a Scare Chord.
  • Giant Flyer: Subverted. You'd expect it to be one, but it mostly just slithers along the ground in magma form rather than flying after the Sprite.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom
  • Hot Wings: Yep.
  • Lava Adds Awesome: As mentioned below, the Firebird's rampage was based on the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens, which was an explosive eruption.
