About This Quiz

From "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" to "Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," Disney has released some of the greatest films in the history of cinema, inspiring millions of fans with their inspirational tales and creative endeavors. If these films have proven anything, though, it's that their magical quality allows them to endure generation after generation as even the oldest Disney films never seem too outdated. 

Of course, you can't discuss a great Disney film without mentioning the characters that make the story happen. Disney characters know how to make us laugh at their jokes, smile at their triumphs and cry with their failures. Without their unique characters, these films would struggle to last as long as they have in the minds of the viewers.

Are you going to be able to recall characters that date back to the '30s and '40s? What about more recent characters who came along with the Disney renaissance in the '90s? Here's a quiz where you can find out.
