The Sensational Six is the collective name given to the group of main characters of the Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck cartoon series and franchises. They are some of the most popular and beloved Disney characters in history, being from the classic era of Disney animation. These characters include:
Mickey Mouse: The iconic leader of the Six, known for his kindness, resourcefulness and tendency to get into mischief.
Minnie Mouse: The sweet, caring and lovely leading lady of the gang and Mickey's true love.
Goofy: The lovable, happy, dimwitted, and clumsy goof, who is known for his friendly, yet extremely naive nature.
Donald Duck: Bad-tempered and unlucky, he is the ever stubborn and ambitious go-getter of the gang.
Daisy Duck: The fabulous, effervescent and ditzy diva of the gang; whose ambition matches that of her beau, Donald.
Pluto: Mickey's loyal and helpful pup, ready to please his owner and friends at anytime.
In products and events where Daisy is absent, the group is referred to as the Fabulous Five.
Interestingly, the original theatrical cartoon shorts never had all six characters appearing together. Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald all appeared together in On Ice and Hawaiian Holiday, both of which preceded Daisy's introduction in Mr. Duck Steps Out (unless one counts Donna Duck from Don Donald as being the same character as Daisy).
