(Redirected from Sid the Sloth)
Sid the Sloth is a giant ground sloth, as well as one of the major characters from the Ice Age franchise, first appearing on the first film, he along with Diego became part of Manny's herd, he is voiced by John Leguizamo.
Why We Cared About Him
- He is very optimistic and friendly to those around him, even though most of the characters misjudge him for being a screw-up most of the time.
- With this in mind, a lot like Goofy: His acts of being a comedic schlemiel with his levels of clumsiness and silliness provide tons of humor and entertainment value in a charming way.
- He, along with Scrat contributes to the films' funniest moments.
- While Sid is easily the wackiest and most spontaneous animal of the core three compared to Manny or Diego, often thinks outside the box and does his own thing, no matter how weird it may seem. He's overtaken by Ellie and her brothers, Crash and Eddie, by the second film.
- He likes caring a lot for children, as seen in the first Ice Age film and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. It has gone to the point where he took good care of the baby dinosaurs. It's pretty funny as well.
- His design is pretty cute for a ground sloth.
- John Leguizamo does a fantastic job voicing him.
- Similar to other amazing and truly awesome comic reliefs, such as Rallo Tubbs from The Cleveland Show, Mushu from Mulan, Patrick Star from SpongeBob SquarePants, Dory from Finding Nemo, Mater from Cars, Donkey from Shrek, and Roger Smith from American Dad, Sid is one of the most memorable comic reliefs in all of Animation and movie in general as Sid has not only made a ton of internet memes, but he steals the spotloight whenever he appears.
- Although he is judged by the other members of the herd for being irresponsible, he actually does show a lot of responsibility.
- He was the glue that held Manny and Diego's friendship together, even Diego mentioned it at the end of the second film. The trio's chemistry is also awesome and believable.
- His backstory is surprisingly sympathetic. He used to have a family but was abandoned by his own family. His only blood relative who genuinely cares about him is his paternal Granny, Gladys. Despite that, Sid is still remained an optmistic and friendly sloth who always tries to help out his friends despite his tendency to constantly, yet unintentionally annoy Manny.
- While his design is good, it doesn’t really seem to replicate the design of actual giant ground sloths unlike how Manny and Diego's designs replicate woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers.
- He can be a little annoying and gross at times, particularly in the sequels.
- He can sometimes by very clingy towards his best friend Manny, though not as much as Donkey towards Shrek, although it's kinda understandable as his own family abandoned him. Speaking of which, like Donkey to Shrek, Sid constantly, albeit unintentionally annoy Manny.
- He often picks on his second best friend Diego, just like Donkey does to Puss in Boots (although Sid is far less antagonistic towards Diego than Donkey towards Puss).
- His character was heavily Flanderized ever since the fourth and fifth installments where he became much dumber and not as likable.
- While John Leguizamo was busy voicing Bruno in Encanto, his new actor Jake Green sounds nothing like him, and therefore does a terrible job voicing Sid.
