Disney has pretty much written the book on true love. But let’s be honest, not every couple they’ve dreamed up would really make it.

“It all started with a mouse.”

This is the one thing that Walt Disney wanted people to remember. The entire Disney empire began with Mickey Mouse. His cartoons brought joy to kids worldwide, especially when his friends Goofy, Pluto and Donald came into the picture.

Then Minnie Mouse arrived on the scene. The first time she and Mickey appeared together was in the 1929 short “Plane Crazy.”  In it, Mickey invites Minnie to join him for a ride in his plane. When he kisses her mid-flight, she literally jumps out of the plane. Don’t worry, she had a parachute! But it wasn’t the best start to their relationship.

Luckily for Mickey, and for believers in true love everywhere, Minnie was indeed his soulmate, in every way. They pretty much define “couple goals.” The proof? The woman who voiced Minnie, Russi Taylor, married the man who voiced Mickey, Wayne Allwine, in 1991. They were married until Wayne’s death in 2009.

So yes, they’re basically perfect. Sadly, not every Disney couple can be as perfect as Mickey and Minnie. Some come pretty close, like Donald and Daisy, but in reality, some of Disney’s most famous pairings just downright don’t make sense.

So, we’ve rounded up 15 of Disney’s most popular couples, and ranked them based on how functional they’d be in real life. Let’s count them down, from least functional to most.
