1. Woody and Buzz Lightyear, Toy Story 1, 2, 3

Why: They start out as frenemies but they learn to love each other. Nothing bonds friends closer than accidental attempted murder.

2. Carl and Russell, Up

Why: They're unlikely buds who prove age is just a number. Grumpy ol' Carl takes Russell under his wing while Russell gives Carl a new lease on life.

3. Marlin and Dory, Finding Nemo

Why: Only a true friend sticks by your side when you're rude/irrational/just plain unpleasant to be around. It took almost being digested by a whale, but eventually Marlin began to trust Dory and give her a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

4. Remy and Linguini, Ratatouille

Why: Rats and humans don't usually spring to mind when you think of BFFs. But Remy and Linguini don't even speak the same language, yet they manage to run a restaurant kitchen together.

5. Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater, Cars 1, 2

Why: They come from totally different backgrounds but that doesn't stop them from becoming the best of friends. They teach each other about new things. Important things. Like tractor tipping.

6. Flik and Dot, A Bug's Life

Why: Flik is like a mentor to Dot, and makes her believe she can do anything despite being small. They are like each other's emotional rocks. Or seeds. Whatever.

7. Harris, Herbert, and Hamish, Brave

Why: OK so technically they're brothers, but they're also pretty awesome friends. They're always stealing food together, and are so in tune with each other they don't even need words to communicate. GOALS.

8. Joy and Sadness, Inside Out

Why: These two are polar opposites, but they come to realize how much they rely on each other. Plus they say real friends help you move, and Joy literally carries Sadness around. Win!

9. Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) and Lucius Best (Frozone), The Incredibles

Why: Poster boys for the bro code, Mr. Incredible and Frozone fight crime behind their wives' backs. Nothing makes a friendship stronger than regularly saving each other's lives (and marriages).

10. WALL-E and Eve, WALL-E

Why: Eve takes a while to warm up to WALL-E, showing that first impressions don't always stick. Plus they're best friends who fall in love which is pretty much the dream.

11. Mike and Sully, Monsters Inc., Monsters University

Why: You could say they got off to a rocky start (they hated each other) in college, but now they're the definition of dream team. Harbouring a fugitive (Boo) is clearly a great way to bond with your mates.
