Many Disney characters are immediately recognizable. No one thinks twice when identifying Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, and Pluto, but Clarabelle Cow has been around just as long – if not longer – than some of Disney’s most iconic characters.

Created by Walt Disney Pictures in 1927, Clarabelle is Minnie Mouse’s good friend and has been romantically linked to Horace Horsecollar, as well as Goofy. Basically, she’s a catch. She has periodically appeared in the Parks and is often linked to Toontown. In a popular Disney video game, Epic Mickey (2010), Clarabelle is referred to as a forgotten character!

Watch Clarabelle bust a move into Guests’ hearts and absolutely SLAY in this sassy TikTok:

TikToker @DisneyAlwaysDisney, attended the Jammin Chefs Show during the Food & Wine Festival at Disneyland’s California Adventure Park and got way more jammin’ than they were plannin’.

Clarabelle Cow seriously steals the show by updating her 1920s character with some crisp modern moves. Daisy Duck, Chip, and Dale are partying with the chefs too, but who can watch them with Clarabelle tearing up the dance floor?

The Food & Wine Festival chefs are playing pots and pans like percussion instruments, and Clarabelle is truly breaking it down. Some of the pots even sound like cowbells, cheering her on. The crowd is cheering for her too.

Clarabelle is wearing her go-to casual Park outfit. She wears an orange shirt and red skirt, with a red hat and shoes to match, accessorizing with a cowbell necklace. For this chef event, Clarabelle also wears a white apron over her ensemble.

One of the most impressive things about Clarabelle’s moves is that she manages to do it all in heels! Not just regular heels, big clunky Minnie Mouse heels that don’t seem to lend to quick movements.

Keep killing it, Clarabelle; we see your talent!

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
