The BEST episodes of Minions

Every episode of Minions ever, ranked from best to worst by thousands of votes from fans of the show. The best episodes of Minions!

All new mini-movies from the creators of Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. The Minions are small, yellow, cylindrical, creatures who have one or two eyes. They are impulsive creatures with little self-control, but with a wide-eyed wonder and odd innocence that endears them to viewers and makes them relatable. They can be pesky when they are doing weird interactions with other people, animals, or objects. Minions have standard English names. Unlike most other criminal masterminds and their usual doctrine of abusing their henchmen, Gru gets along famously with his minions. He genuinely seems to like them and even shows appreciation for their hard work and support. He even seems to know each of them by name.
