Atlantis: Subterranean Tours

According to this guidebook, which describes events after Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Theodore Roosevelt was one of the regular visitors to Atlantis, along with other celebrities such as Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.G. Wells, and Harry Houdini. He was brought there in secret by Whitmore Industries.

The Legend of Tarzan

Theodore Roosevelt appears in the episode Tarzan and the Rough Rider where he visits the jungle on safari and runs afoul of kidnappers. At first he does not impress Tarzan who does not see him as being a worthy leader, but Theodore manages to prove otherwise later. Here, he is voiced by Stephen Root.

The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck

Theodore Roosevelt appears in several chapters of the storyline. In The Buckaroo of the Badlands, set before his presidency in the year 1882, he befriends Scrooge McDuck and helps him defeat a group of cattle rustlers. Years later, in the chapter The Invader of Fort Duckburg, Roosevelt is called in by the Junior Woodchucks to reclaim the ruins of Fort Duckburg, which Scrooge McDuck purchased to build the Money Bin. Bringing in the army and after a comical battle, Theodore recognizes his old friend Scrooge and the two stop the fighting and get reacquainted while having a campfire dinner.

Disney Parks

Theodore Roosevelt appears in The Hall of Presidents and The American Adventure. In the latter, he appears in a scene focusing on the establishment of the National Parks with John Muir beginning with Yosemite.

'The Muppets'

Roosevelt has been depicted in many Disney-owned Muppet productions as part of Mount Rushmore with Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington. Roosevelt frequently utters cries of "Bully!" He was performed by Frank Oz in The Muppet Show: Sex and Violence. Fozzie Bear played "Teddy" in a 2014 Presidents Day video posted on Walt Disney Studios' Facebook page, promoting Muppets Most Wanted.

He was mentioned in the The Muppets (TV series) episode Too Hot to Handler.

Phineas and Ferb

In the Phineas and Ferb episode, MandaceHeinz Doofenshmirtz was changed into Theodore Roosevelt. And in Steampunx, a teddy bear is modeled after Roosevelt, apparently due to his presidency being in that time and the teddy bear was named after him.
