Title says it all. Let’s do this… awkwardly.
New To Awkward Character: Anna
She falls into a boat as she falls in love, and it’s awkward. She even says so herself! It’s also pretty awkward when she finds out that the guy she falls in love with ::spoiler alert:: is actually a bad dude and leaves her hanging when they’re about to kiss. We wouldn’t know, haven’t been there ourselves, but that’s pretty awkward.
Doesn’t Know She’s Being Awkward: Snow White
Girl shows up at someone else’s home, cleans it, then falls asleep in allllll of their beds. Her lack of social awareness is real awkward. You can see it in the eyes of the dwarfs.
King of Awkward Pauses: Kronk
Because Kronk is on the fence when it comes to being a good guy and a bad guy, he has these moments wherein he has to pause and think about what he’s going to do. Thing is, he stops and talks to his visions of shoulder angels while he tries to make up his mind, which is probably really weird looking to anyone else who is around. Anti-awkward advice about inner monologues: keep them inner.
Awkward Groomer: Ariel
This is totally not her fault; really we should blame Scuttle for telling Ariel that a fork is something that it’s not. What makes the whole dinglehopper scene the worst is the enthusiasm with which Ariel uses the fork as a hairbrush. She is just sooo sure that her use of the dinglehopper to brush her hair will impress Eric, she’s so excited to see a familiar gadget in the human world that she can interact with. But then, she sees his face…
Actually, come to think of it, Ariel is pretty awkward throughout The Little Mermaid. First, there’s that time that she’s talking to the Prince Eric statue like it’s a real human.
Then there’s the time when she falls off a rock while wearing a sail and some rope. She looks awesome in that sail and rope, but still, it’s pretty awkward.
Awkward Like Your Parents: Friend Owl
Pretty much, Friend Owl is awkward the way your parents are awkward when you’re in 5th grade and all of your friends are over and your parents ask you all who you have a crush on and everyone is all like “ewww no cooties,” but secretly you know you’re not scared of cooties because you totally DO have a crush. Does that make sense?
The Everyman of Awkward: Bernard
Bernard reminds us of ourselves. He has that everyman brand of awkwardness. As soon as you see him, you know what he’s all about because he’s just so transparent: he has a crush on Miss Bianca, he wants to prove himself as a Rescuer, he has a bit of a lack of self confidence, he’s a good guy but a little shy. He has trouble getting a word out because he’s just thinking too hard. Pretty much, he’s just human… except he’s a mouse.
Awkwardest Dental Gear: Darla
Headgear is kind to no one. Maybe it’s just poetic justice, since Darla isn’t exactly kind to fish.
Awka Wocka: Fozzie
Poor Fozzie. He just tries so hard, and ends up falling so flat with each thing he says. The trying is what makes him so awkward. If only he’d learn to be a little bit meta with his bad comedy, but alas, his efforts are still very earnest, and therefore awkwardness is his burden.
Awkward Dog Sitter: Wiggins
Wiggins has a one-way train ticket to Awk Town. He is all angles, he bursts in with silly inventions at the most inopportune moments, and he’s essentially a servant to a self-involved pug. (Percy, not Ratcliffe. Hey-yo!) If you look deep, deep, deeply into Wiggins’ eyes, you can see a dictionary entry for the word “awkward.”
Awkward Friend-Zoner: Wendy
This one isn’t immediately obvious, but Wendy is pretty awkward. Can we all finally agree that she has SUCH a crush on Peter and he is just so oblivious to it. The most awkward display of this awkward dynamic is when Peter is hanging out with the Mermaid and is pretty much like “Wendy who?” and Wendy is like “Oh Petahhh!” Ahhh, it’s just so awkward, especially because Wendy asked to meet the Mermaids in the first place! Then there’s the time the Lost Boys try to shoot down the “Wendy Bird” when Wendy first arrives in Never Land, and she was the most excited to visit Never Land in the first place. Plus, she’s a real awkward flier.
