Disney+ launched back in 2019, and is home to Disney’s biggest and best titles. Anything from animated classics and beloved films to Marvel and Star Wars can be found on the popular streaming service. However, despite it being around for years now, there are still plenty of titles somehow missing from Disney+. Below are just some of the incredible Disney TV shows and movies that haven’t made their way over to Disney+ quite yet.
Dave the Barbarian
Dave the Barbarian was an animated comedy series that aired on Disney Channel during the mid-2000s. It was an extremely hilarious and heartfelt show that followed the adventures of a barbarian who cared more about baking and good penmanship than battling, along with his sisters and talking sword, as they rule over their kingdom while their parents are away. With great situational comedy, a whimsical fantasy setting, and unique characters, it’s a must watch despite it being rather short lived.
House of Mouse
Since House of Mouse is essentially a celebration of Disney’s rich animated history, it’s especially shocking that it hasn’t made its way onto the streaming platform yet. The beloved series featured Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, and the rest of their friends running a dinner theater club where they showcased cartoon shorts for their audience of Disney animated characters. Audiences got to see glimpses of classic cartoons while also being treated by one of the biggest crossovers in Disney history.
Bug Juice was a rare commodity to see on Disney Channel: a reality TV series. The series focused on around twenty kids and their real experiences at summer camp. It was admittedly a tad boring for younger kids, but it offered older kids with a program they could potentially relate with. It also served as an introduction into the reality TV genre for younger viewers.
Buzz Lightyear of Star Command
Everyone knows the space ranger toy from the Toy Story film franchise, Buzz Lightyear. Buzz Lightyear of Star Command was a 2-D animated series that followed the adventures of Buzz as a real space ranger. He and his team of allies battled evildoers, like Emperor Zurg, Warp Darkmatter, and Gravitina, to protect the galaxy. It was overall a truly exciting space superhero series that would be worth the binge if it ever does come to Disney+.
Winnie the Pooh Projects
Winnie the Pooh has become what is probably one of Disney’s most beloved franchises. However, there are somehow plenty of Winnie the Pooh titles mysteriously missing from their streaming service. The absent projects include a TV series called Welcome to Pooh Corner, quite a few short films such as Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and Winnie the Pooh Discovers the Seasons, TV specials like Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh and A Winnie the Pooh Thanksgiving, and more. Winnie the Pooh is perfect for folks of all ages, and it’s pretty odd that so much of it is missing from Disney+.
Stanley was an adorable and quite enjoyable Playhouse Disney cartoon that followed the adventures of a little boy who could talk to animals. Each episode had him help a different animal with a problem, which would in turn teach Stanley an important lesson. It managed to be both educational and entertaining. Plus, who could forget its catchy theme song performed by the Baha Men?
Aladdin: the Series
Aladdin is one of Disney’s most popular flicks from their renaissance era, and there’s a TV show of it that takes place within the same canon. Aladdin: the Series is an extremely fun watch for any fan of the classic movie. It’s certainly a massive shock that Disney doesn’t have this on their streaming service yet.
Disney acquired the Muppets back in 2004 and have made a solid handful of Muppets content since. That being said, there’s a hefty chunk of Muppets media not streaming in Disney+. Not only are there a couple of episodes of The Muppets Show missing due to music rights, but there are feature length movies and TV specials also absent. The classic Muppets Take Manhattan and the iconic Muppets from Space are very noticeably missing, and those absences are especially felt. Along with a number of other projects, A Muppet Family Christmas is also nowhere to be seen. Everyone loves Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, and the rest of the crew, so hopefully Disney can fix this lack of Muppets on their streaming platform soon.
Lloyd in Space
The co-creators of Recess (which IS streaming on Disney+), also brought the world Lloyd in Space. It’s a slice of life show with similar vibes to Doug, but in space and in the distant future. The relatable comedy and every day problems with sci-fi twists provided a lot of entertainment. It aired on both Toon Disney and ABC, so it reached a pretty wide audience on multiple Disney-owned networks. It could reach an even broader audience on Disney+.
There’s a pretty surprising amount of other Disney-owned properties that still haven’t made their way onto Disney+ as well. At least there’s a way for them to keep uploading content that wasn’t there before.
