Disney (officially known as The Walt Disney Company) is an American multinational media conglomerate headquartered in Walt Disney Studios, Burbank, California, United States. It is the largest media conglomerate in the world in terms of revenue. Founded on October 16, 1923, by Walt and Roy Disney as the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio, Walt Disney Productions established itself as a leader in the American animation industry before diversifying into live-action film production, television, and travel. Taking on its current name in 1986, The Walt Disney Company expanded its existing operations and also started divisions focused upon theatre, radio, publishing, and online media. In addition, it has created new divisions of the company in order to market more mature content than it typically associates with its flagship family-oriented brands.
It is perhaps best known for its character Mickey Mouse, whose image is widely recognized across the world. Its animated films are also widely considered to have set the standard for children’s entertainment and are some of the most beloved films of all time; Snow White, Cinderella, The Sleeping Beauty, and The Lion King among others, are well-known and loved by most children. In addition to its films, Disney operates a number of theme parks based on them, most notably Disneyland, in Anaheim, California, and Dinseyworld, in Orlando, Florida.
Disney’s films and characters have a world-wide following among children and adults alike; since the company is involved with so many productions, there are frequent topics for discussion online and offline. There are many sites devoted to Disney fandom, and talk about their films often appears on generic cartoon forums, such as 4chan’s /co/, alongside with anime and other animation forms.

Hipster Ariel (a.k.a Hipster Mermaid) is an Advice Animal image macro series, featuring a screenshot of Ariel from Disney’s 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid, and a superimposed caption poking fun at hipsterisms, in similar vein to Hipster Kitty. The popularity of this macro has caused a number of other Disney heroines to undergo the same treatment, and has even inspired some cosplay; see the entry’s image gallery for more.

Didney Worl is an image macro series related to Derp. It features screencaps of Disney characters with unusual or twisted facial expressions. The phrase “Didney Worl” itself is a play on Disney World, and captions often involve jokes about going to visit “Didney Worl.” The meme itself originated on Tumblr in 2011.
Gaston is a character from a Disney film The Beauty and the Beast, and is used in various image macros featuring humorous captions, usually based off Gaston’s zany and odd behaviour through out the movie. He is often depicted as being extremely manly, if a little slow. Gaston is also very popular in YTPs.
Dolan (NSFW), also known as Anu ankka, is a character based on Donald Duck that appears in many Finnish MS Paint-style comics.

It’s Goofy Time!
It’s Goofy Time! (NSFW) is a single-pane comic featuring Goofy standing in an illuminated doorway, holding a belt, and looking over a young boy cowering on the floor. Despite the graphic implications of the comic, it has turned into a Photoshop meme, with Goofy replaced with various other characters and their associated catchphrases.
Hentai Woody (変態ウッディー)
Hentai Woody (NSFW), or Creepy Woody (変態ウッディー in Japanese), is a photo meme that features the Toy Story protagonist Woody in a number of erotic and creepy scenarios. It began when Japanese toy manufacturer Kaiyodo released an action figure of Woody with a very large smile on his face, which was immediately likened to trollface or rape face by 4chan users, who began to make and photograph the action figure in NSFW scenes.
Winnie The Pooh’s Home Run Derby
Winnie the Pooh’s Home Run Derby is a flash game produced by Disney in 2008, where the player controls Winnie the Pooh as a batter in a game of baseball. It was picked up on by users of the Japanese site Futaba Channel (2chan) in early 2012, and then by 4chan in early 2013. The game is notable for its extreme difficulty, especially in later levels. For example, the final boss, Christopher Robin, pitches invisible balls for Pooh to hit. The game has inspired a variety of fanart depicting its difficulty.
