Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 - April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, particularly noted for his leadership during the Civil War, delivery of the Gettysburg Address, and the Emancipation Proclamation. Nicknamed "Honest Abe," the lanky bearded politician was a controversial figure in his own time, but has since been recognized as one of the greatest presidents, ranked with George Washington. A key factor in this was not only Lincoln's statesmanship and opposition to slavery, but his assassination on April 14, 1865, days after the Southern forces surrendered. Lincoln thus became the first American president to be assassinated (but not the last, as witness John F. Kennedy) and the fourth to die in office. His image adorns the five dollar bill and penny.

Although he never existed during the time of movies, Robot Abraham Lincoln was based on him and he was spoofed by Pumbaa in the Timon and Pumbaa episode; "Catch Me if You Kenya" and Quint in "Klondike Con". Two evil robot versions of him also appeared in the Phineas and Ferb episode "Mom's Birthday" and "Let's Bounce". In the Dave the Barbarian episode; "Not a Monkey!," Dave was seen wearing a Lincoln hat with a fake brown beard to replace his missing hair. A folk doll version of Lincoln possessed by the ghost of someone else was a planned character for the scrapped feature film project My Peoples, or A Few Good Ghosts. He was played by Daniel Day-Lewis in the 2012 film, Lincoln and Glenn Beck in National Treasure: Book of Secrets. His Mount Rushmore face statue was seen in a Goofy short in the House of Mouse episode; "Chip 'n' Dale", in the Quack Pack episode; "The Really Mighty Ducks" along with the other three presidents, and in The Muppets. In the House of Mouse episode; "Gone Goofy"'s Pit Crew and Donald's Goofy World, Goofy was seen wearing and dressed up as Lincoln. He was mentioned in Toy Story 2, an episode of Best Friends Whenever, an episode of Lab Rats: Elite Force,  the Bizaardvark episode The Collab and the Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything episode The Rankening.
