If you are like me, you also grew up watching Jeopardy after school with your family. I have been a long-time watcher and fan who has loved playing along at home with my family for years. I would feel like a genius when I got an answer that my parents didn’t, or feel victorious when I got out an answer quicker than my brothers. For anyone unfamiliar — though I don’t know how anyone could possibly be — Jeopardy is a quiz show that has been airing since 1964. It consists of three rounds: Jeopardy, Double Jeopardy, and Final Jeopardy. The show contains a variety of categories that span a wide array of knowledge.

While Jeopardy contestants may frequently best me in matters of science and math as I play along on my couch, there is one subject I can always best them on: Disney. On the rare occurrences that a Disney question or an entire category comes on-screen during a Jeopardy episode, my excitement is immeasurable. Luckily, I and fellow Disney fanatics am able to experience this application of our expertise anytime via the Jeopardy YouTube channel with their episode highlights!

One of Disney films’ most distinct features is of course their soundtracks. This is one category that any Disney fan would easily sweep if they were featured on the show, as long as they had quick fingers and remembered to phrase their response in the form of a question. One contestant out of the three featured in this episode seems to be that fan, with host Ken Jennings observing, “You know your Disney movies.” The answers of this category consist of Disney classics over several decades, with no real notable “stumpers” among them; feel free to give it a go yourself!

The Disney Lady Sings

Disney is currently wrapping up celebrating Women’s History Month- but it’s not over until the Disney lady sings! This category specifically highlights the classic songs of Disney heroines and the actresses who performed them. Real Disney fans could easily name either of these if given the other, but contestants here were merely asked to give the name of the movie that the famous heroines were featured in.

The Disney ladies here are all Disney Princesses, with one contestant sweeping the category and impressively showing off her extensive Princess knowledge. Unfortunately, I could not see myself doing the same, as there is a strong possibility I would be too busy mentally singing the songs as I saw the titles pop up to actually buzz in.

This category is highly enjoyable for its video clues featuring professional recordings of the Disney Broadway productions. Feel free to keep track of how much money you would have made here if you are not busy wishing that these performance recordings were available for streaming on Disney+.

Double Jeopardy sees the monetary value of questions from the first category doubled. This is often accompanied by increasingly difficult categories.

Featuring the original Broadway cast of Aladdin on stage delivering the clues in character, this high enjoyable category showcases the dazzling production of Disney’s Aladdin. Aladdin, Jasmine, the Geenie, and Jafar all make appearances.

The Grand Vizier himself gives the $2,000 clue, appropriate given his own desire for riches. This category sees the contestants do quite well once again. A notable exception, however, comes when a contestant gives a wrong answer after misunderstanding the question and audibly expresses his frustration with himself as the late host Alex Trebek moves on to the next question.
