Falls in love with Hyacinth Hippo
"I really am attracted to Hyacinth Hippo even when I'm an alligator."
Ben Ali Gator is a character from the 1940 feature film . He is an alligator who appears in the segment Fantasia Dance of the Hours.
In the segment "Dance Of The Hours," Ben Ali Gator takes the role of Enzo Grimaldo, a Genoese prince. He is also the leader of the Dancers of the Night. This is deduced by the fact that he meets and falls in love with
Hyacinth Hippo (who symbolizes Laura Adorno), and furthermore the flinging aside of his cape (symbolizing Enzo flinging aside his disguise upon discovery of Laura's body).
Ben Ali and his gator accomplices were part of Minnie Mouse's skating routine. They are later seen in traditional artwork during the end credits.
Ben Ali made numerous minor cameos in the series often seen in crowd shots sitting with Hyacinth.
Ben Ali can be found in several spots but not as a meetable character whatsoever. Some statues can be found at the
Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf in Walt Disney World. Ben Ali and Hyacinth can be seen in the Main Street Electrical Parade and in Fantasmic!'s bubble sequence.
