Tarzan is one of my favorites. To quote my mother, he is "the unassuming, yet transparent hero, saving Jane from the 'pretence' of civilized living. (He reminds me of your daddy.)". The attachment he developes toward those he loves, and the strength and wit he has that outsmarts the bad guys. Yes, all those things I love.
Buzz Lightyear, Simba, and John Smith all rank prety high up there too. But the one that tops them all off for me is (and I quote my sister) "a strange boy" who rides a magic carpet, talks to a genie, and has a pet monkey.
I love Aladdin.
