Who doesn't love a little bit of wordplay every now and then? When the so-called 'Disney Reinassance' began in the late 1980s, Disney Puns became a thing as more and more of them began to pop up throughout their numerous animated films. With Disney+ having recently joined the ongoing - and seemingly neverending - streaming wars, we sat down to try and find as many jokes that are just a play on words as we could find is the company's extensive animated catalog. 

We've got Zazu and his pun-filled report of the kingdom's goings-on in The Lion King. We've got Jafar slinging puns left and right as he uses spells to fight our heroes at the end of Aladdin. We've got King Candy, who has a whole thing where he's kind of just an insidious pun machine in Wreck-It Ralph. And there is plenty more where that came from. Here are some of the best puns hidden away in the Disney animation vault!
