Disney Villain Countdown: 29/40

Disney Villain Countdown: 29/40

**Spoiler Alert! Some villains are revealed in plot twists, so if you haven't seen all the movies...** 

Fear / Intimidation Factor
Lotso is the Godfather of the daycare mafia.  It's pretty impressive, the tiny empire of intimidation he's set up for himself.  With that said, he's still just a fluffy teddy bear.  The real knock to his intimidation factor comes in the form of his backstory: he becomes TOO sympathetic.  Once we learn how Lotso got to be the way he is, he's no longer scary, just sad.  Poor Lotso. Just watching this clip makes me all sad again. 

Character Design
Again, not doing him any favors.  He's a pinkish/purplish teddy bear.  Not a very unique looking one, either.

Wit & Quotability
Just below average.  A few quotable moments. Initially, the wit can be a little impressive when you consider the empire he built for himself, but he's so easily undermined by the new toys ihe couldn't have been THAT clever. 

Memorability
I scored him similarly to Frollo, because they are both memorable for the wrong reasons.  Frollo for being a creeper, Lotso for being too sympathetic.  

Sidekicks
Big Baby suffers from being even more creepy, sad, and sympathetic than Lotso.  He also doesn't talk.  Most of Lotso's minions have very little involvement, so he earns a just above neutral score.

Song
None, neutral score.
