Our Favorite Animal Couples in Film and TV History

Don’t be a turkey!
Check out Free Birds on DVD and Blu-ray February 4th

Well, it’s that time of year again. The time we celebrate love and all of the magical feelings that come along with it. Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler star as Reggie and Jenny in Fox Home Entertainment’s animated motion picture, Free Birds. Although Reggie is a time-traveling turkey who is focused on taking his kind off of the Thanksgiving menu, he can’t help but take some time to get to know the lovely Jenny. Their romance blossoms and she gives Reggie added motivation he needs to accomplish his mission.

To help you get into the mood for romance this Valentine’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of the top animated animal couples in film and TV history!

Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Regarded as the “Brad and Angelina” of animated animal couples, Mickey and Minnie have been together since 1928, when they first appeared in the animated short film “Steamboat Willie.” This power couple has managed to survive the ups and downs that come with such a long relationship - including the shift to color, and the invention of computer animation.

Donkey and Dragon

This couple may be the oddest pairing on our list. Even in the cartoon world, it’s not expected that you would find a loud-mouthed donkey, and a fire-breathing dragon, in love. However, that’s just what you get in Shrek. It’s a good thing Donkey is such a sweet-talker, as he had to talk his way out of getting eaten by Dragon the first time they met.

Simba & Nala
Once childhood friends, Simba and Nala were separated by the events that led to the death of Simba’s father, Mufasa in The Lion King. They are reunited when Nala tries to attack Simba’s jungle companion, Pumba the wild boar. Upon realizing they are in fact friends, the flames of young love are rekindled. They eventually go on to take back the empire that was rightfully theirs, and Simba restores his place as king of the jungle.

Bugs & Lola
Bugs Bunny was known as one of the most eligible bachelors in the cartoon world for much of his career. That is, until he met Lola in 1996’s Space Jam. With Michael Jordan as his wingman, Bugs was able to win Lola’s heart, all while helping the Toon Squad defeat the Monsters in the ultimate game of basketball - one that would decide the fate of the universe.

Lady & Tramp
These young pups from the opposite sides of the tracks are responsible for one of the most iconic love scenes in all of film history. Their spaghetti kiss from Lady & The Tramp is the most widely recognizable kisses of the 20th century. However, the kiss was only the beginning of their romance, as they went on to have four puppies together. I guess you could say it was more than just puppy love!

Melman & Gloria
Melman & Gloria’s love story in Madagascar is one of determination. After Gloria confessed her attraction to Alex, Melman is forced to leap into action to try and win over his childhood crush. His efforts eventually pay off as he wins her love and affection. They will likely go down as the most famous Giraffe-Hippopotamus couple in film history.
