Toontown Tuesdays: Prince John

In the Disney animated film Robin Hood, the main villain is Prince John, who is portrayed as a whiny, simpering pretender to the throne who overtaxes the people of England.


Not the type of character who could become a beloved presence in one of DISNEYLAND's most magical parades ever, right? Actually, that's exactly what happened.


In Disney's Main Street Electrical Parade, the villainous Prince John holds court in a gigantic calliope, dancing and performing for the crowds. Added after the release of the film, Prince John was never replaced with a newer character because his amazing dancing made him a guest favorite. Despite his villainous acts, Prince John knows how to really get down!
