Being a leash kid must be so much worse when your little sister is no longer on the leash.

I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
I HAVE THE BIGGEST CRUSH ON ROBERT
SCUZE ME HE IS SUPER ATTRACTIVE
Roger <3 Definitely the best Disney guy out there. In a way, he’s probably a more idealized interpretation of what girls want in a guy than any of the princes; he’s funny, nerdy, talented, and passionate about his work, whereas all the Disney princes are just generic hot guys with maybe one personality trait— and that’s if you’re lucky because most of them don’t even have that.
And tall, lanky guys are super attractive.
I don’t know about you but the big nose sells it for me.
