MALE STAMPS

Aladdin (Aladdin)
Aladdin is portrayed as clever, and ultimately a good-hearted person. Like most Disney male protagonists, he is a brave young man who seeks to win the affection of many other characters, which demonstrates his insecurity. He can be selfish and indignant at times, which is shown through the wishes he makes. He is not above lying and stealing, but never with evil intentions, but in order to survive. The biggest difference from the norm is that, unlike most youthful Disney heroes, he is a doer rather than a passive character
Words to describe Aladdin: clever, good-hearted, adventurous, a "street-rat", selfish, romantic, insecure, friendly.


Arthur (The Sword in the Stone)
Arthur is nicknamed "Wart", and is the main protagonist of the film. He is Disney's adaptation of legendary British leader King Arthur.

He goes to retrieve the arrow, and falls into Merlin's cottage. Merlin announces he will be his tutor, and the two return to Arthur's home, a castle run by Sir Ector.
Words to describe Arthur: naive, heroic, kind, a push-over, curious.


Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
Disney's variant of the tale, the Beast originally appeared to be constantly angry and depressed. As opposed to his original counterpart, the creators gave him a more primal nature to his personality, which truly exploited his character as an untamed animal. After the Beast saves Belle from a pack of wolves, his dress-style changes, reflecting a more refined personality. His dress style becomes more disciplined, and the most referenced form of dress is his ballroom outfit, which consisted of a golden vest over a white dress shirt with a white kerchief, black dress pants trimmed with gold, and a navy blue ballroom tail coat trimmed with gold, worn during the film's ballroom dance sequence. Upon his reform under his love interest Belle, his personality changes to refined, but naive about the world at the same time. Supervising animator Keane describes The Beast as "a twenty-one-year-old guy who's insecure, wants to be loved, wants to love, but has this ugly exterior and has to overcome this."
Words to describe the Beast: selfish, gruff, internally-sensitive, romantic, insecure, angry, irritable.

She drags him to shore and sings to him, but before he can regain consciousness fully, Max and Grimsby arrive, forcing Ariel to dive underwater. When Eric is seen again, he is haunted by Ariel's voice, and has been searching the kingdom for her. When he crosses paths with Ariel again, she has traded her voice for legs, and though he initially finds her familiar, her lack of a voice makes him think that she cannot be the girl who rescued him. However, he brings her back to his palace and they spend time together. During a boat ride, the two come close to kissing, but Floatsum and Jetsum intervene by tipping over their boat.

Flynn Rider (Tangled)
The ultra-confident Flynn Rider (also known as "Eugene Fitzherbert") is his own biggest fan, and he has long relied on his wit, charm, and good looks to get out of even the stickiest situation -- and Flynn's life just happens to be full of sticky situations. Flynn is a thief looking for the one last, big score that will allow him to finally live the life he's always dreamed of. He's never been closer to having it all when he meets Rapunzel, an odd girl with ridiculously long hair. Rapunzel seems to be the only girl in the world immune to Flynn's moves, and for the first time ever he seems to have met his match. An unlikely alliance with this girl from the tower sends Flynn on the adventure of a lifetime, and helps him realize that sometimes you don't know what you want...until it hits you on the head...literally.
