    I don't know if there's a thread like this already, but anyways.

    The title says it all.:p

    Lion King, Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast are some of the best, I defiinitely agree.

    I also like Alice in Wonderland, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and (does this count?) Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Oh yeah and also THE MANY ADVENTURES OF WINNIE THE POOH!

    The Rescuers and Snow White are my favorites.

    Now that you mention "The Rescuers," I LOVE that movie. Not only is it a classic, I can't image or believe my eyes that small creatures could rescue a girl who is in deep trouble. The song I loved the most was, "Someone's Waiting For You." Maybe in the future, I will sing that song to a little child... you know my own little boy or girl. :excited:

    Snow and the Seven Dwarfs is also probably my favorite as well. That was probably also one of the movies I grew up with. :)

    Fantasia all the way. I grew up in a household of symphonic musicians--mother plays flute & piccolo, father played oboe and English horn for the Atlanta Symphony--so I already had that kind of music in my life. And I love animation, so that movie, heh, hits all the right notes for me.

    Emperor's New Groove. Watch it and TELL me it isn't a stealth parody/deconstruction of Disney movies. The hero (so to speak) is insufferably nasty and a likeable unlikable, the villain would almost be sympathetic if she wasn't an absolute monster. Not to mention the fact that they even ruthlessly parody the cliche of the big villain ALWAYS turning into a giant or Elderich abomination. Seriously, this movie needs much more love at Disney. The original version of the movie would have sucked big time.

    Also, shout outs to classic(ish) films like Lion King, Jungle Book, and Pinocchio... but I find the underrated films much more fun. Great Mouse Detective is great, especially since Vincent Price is completely underrated when it comes to comedy, being pigeonholed into being the master of fright (not that he isn't). Oliver and Company is very special to me and holds a certain nostalgic angle. A Goofy Movie. That speaks for itself, I think. More Disney characters need movies like that. And I just wouldn't be me if I didn't say Recess: School's Out and Teacher's Pet. I mean, I like the Ducktales film and the Doug one was pretty good... but these movies surpassed the TV shows they were based on. Teacher's Pet is pretty much the only theatrically released series ending I've ever heard of, and Recess was too good for a small vacation release.

    My other favorites are Cinderella, A Goofy Movie (mainly because of the great comedy offered by Goofy!), Fantasia, The Little Mermaid, The Black Cauldron, Lady and the Tramp, and Winnie the Pooh.
    As for Live-Action, my favorites are My Date With the President's Daughter (I'm a 00's child, what can I say?), Mighty Ducks, Tuck Everlasting, Tex, The Haley Mills Parent Trap, The Absent Minded Professor with Fred MacMurray, Hocus Pocus, Blackbeard's Ghost, and Davy Crocket: King of the Wild Frontier

    If we're strictly talking the main Disney animated canon:
    • Fantasia
    • The Little Mermaid
    • Beauty and the Beast
    • The Lion King
    • The Hunchback of Notre Dame
    • Winnie the Pooh
    Yeah, a little biased towards modern Disney, eh? ;)

    Of course I forget Pocahontas and Robin Hood!

    • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    • Beauty & the Beast
    • Lilo & Stitch
    • Winnie the Pooh
    And a few others I can't remember off the top of my head at the moment...

    Okay I'm gonna have to say The Lion King, The Rescuers, Pocahontas, Mulan, and The Little Mermaid. Meh. I think. Too much pressure to think of them right now! And it's so hard to chooseeee.
  15. Plaid Fraggle

    Plaid Fraggle Well-Known Member

    I feel like a sap (YUCK), but I've gotta be honest...Bambi's always been my favorite! It's absolutely gorgeous!

    Also a fan of certain "underrated" ones, among which I think are 101 Dalmatians and The Jungle Book. Both classics that aren't super commonly talked about, AND the music is awesome in each of them.

    And not a big fan of the gargoyles in this film, but The Hunchback of Notre Dame is pretty kickin'. Definitely attempted some things that were really risky for Disney, and well, I'm a big fan of Esmeralda :)

    I LOVE Winnie the Pooh.
    Also, the lights scene in Tangled.

    Lilo and Stitch is another great one. It's one of the few times an original idea became a hit (if any original ideas became a hit). I mean, you don't get 3 DTV sequels and a cartoon series in the US and 2 in Japan if you're not a hit. Heck, Lion King and Aladdin each only got 2 DTV's and One TV show. Granted, 2 of the Lilo and Stitch DTV's were based on the TV show. And then there was one more DVD that was a board game.

    Ohhhh my word. How did I miss you saying this. My sister and I LOVED that movie (and I think my mom thought it was funny too, actually, and she's more anti-Disney Channel than I!). And of course while I'm talking about my sister and I, that sister-switch movie from the 90s, Wish Upon a Star, was a favorite of ours too. I actually think those two are pretty good, considering most of the video-movie things that aired on Disney Channel. And just... don't get me started on Disney Channel post-Hannah Montana :grouchy:

    And A Goofy Movie is still a huge favorite of mine, it's comedy gold XD That Possum Park scene actually brings me to tears it's so funny, no shame!

    I like Lilo and Stitch and A Goofy Movie.
    I enjoy Tangled too. Even though I've seen it too many times, right now. I so wish to goto the Disney Parks while thinking of it. I so want to meet Flynn Rider. :drool::laugh:

    Okay and definitely Aladdin and Lilo & Stitich.
