Alfred "Weird Al" Yankovic is an American singer-songwriter, music producer, accordionist, actor, voice actor, comedian, writer, satirist, and parodist who is known for his humorous songs that make light of popular culture and often parody specific songs by contemporary musical acts.

For Disney, he appeared as himself in the 1998 television film, Safety Patrol, as well as sang the introduction song of the 1996 Hollywood Pictures film, Spy Hard. He has also done several voice-over roles, such as guest-starring as the singing minstrel in the Lilo & Stitch: The Series episode "Tank", Probabilitor the Annoying in the Gravity Falls episode "Dungeons, Dungeons, & More Dungeons", Dr. Screwball Jones in Wander Over Yonder, Preston Change-O in the Star vs. the Forces of Evil episode "Trickstar", and Shapeshifter in The 7D. Beginning in 2016, Yankovic voiced Milo Murphy, the title character of Milo Murphy's Law. He makes a cameo in Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe as Shirt Cannon Guy.

Prior to all of his above-listed roles, his song "Eat It" (a parody of Michael Jackson's "Beat It") was the subject of a music video featured in the DTV TV special, Doggone Valentine, and "I Want a New Duck" (a parody of Huey Lewis and the News' "I Want a New Drug") was used as the opening and closing song for Down and Out with Donald Duck. Yankovic himself also appeared in "Captain EE-I-EE-I-O", a one-shot comic featured in the January 1993 issue of Disney Adventures.

His cover of the "George of the Jungle" theme was used in the opening credits sequence of the movie adaptation of the TV show, and he was also referenced in the Lizzie McGuire episode "Bunkies". Additionally, the Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja episode "M-M-M-my Bologna" is named after one of his songs.

Yankovic has written a song about the Jungle Cruise attraction, "Skipper Dan", which was referenced back into the attraction by way of a canteen prop added to the queue during the 2021 refurbishment.

Yankovic is mentioned in the Runaways episode "Rewind"
