Top Ten Animated Movies Of All Time


The Contenders: Page 2XW


WE should believe in the impossible, anyone can do it, no matter who. The story evolves around the rat because rats are creatures that are considered pests and are the last animal that would be brought into a kitchen. Rats however can be very smart and quick. It is similar to the movie "mouse hunt".

This has the best message in it, anyone can do it this movie should be #1

I was not expecting to like this movie, but it turned out to be my favorite Pixar movie. I have no idea why. Something about it just makes me feel so good inside, and the characters and atmosphere are all fantastic. Superb underdog movie. - Knucklewood

One of the best movies I've ever seen. Lovely story and funny too!

22Toy Story 2

I like all 3 movies equally. They are all in my top 10 - Sabbath

Not the best, but I had lots of fun watching it.

An outstanding voice cast and gorgeous animation make this film a timeless classic, that for the first time in history, arguably outdoes it's predecessor. To not even make top 20 is an insult.

Toy Story 2 sucks because it's a copycat from Star Wars episode 5. The only thing I liked is Buzz saying "I am your father"

This film is bad. It's not awful but it's bad. First off, it's like many things that's the reason for a song's popularity. Let It Go only became popular because of this movie. And, I want a clear answer on where Elsa got her powers from. Thirdly, how can Elsa stay in that room for years without needing to eat or go to the bathroom. Also, what was the point of the king and queens death. Also, when Anna steps outside that castle, no one watches her. It's like she's not a princess. Finally, LET IT GO TORTURED ME SINCE THE MOVIE CAME OUT! Everyone at school was annoying me with that song that I would rather sit through that crap once than hear people sing Let It Go everyday.

I hate this movie as much as you do, but in the movie, during the trolls scene, they say she was born with her powers. It's just very quiet. Not enough proof? Read the screenplay PDF online.

This film is insanely overrated, I mean- what kind of maniac decides to run and freeze an entire kingdom because of "fear"? The story could have been made into a great movie, but instead became one of the most overrated films of all time. The voice acting was mediocre and so were the songs. Nothing happens in the movie that was well written, or to sum it up, good. Olaf is just- useless. He does absolutely NOTHING that is important to the story. The plot was predictable and the characters to me were rather flat. I would not watch this movie EVER AGAIN.

Like usual it ain't the best. But the fact that it got this high so quickly really says something. It's a wonderful, satisfying movie, it's not often every single character (except for that one guy) is likeable as hell, the songs are so damn catchy and well sung. It's only fault is the ending, which I figured out in the first 20 minutes of the film, but it's intended for little kids so why the hell does it matter. A 10/10 for me, made me so damn happy and I can't wait to see it agin.

Overrated. Not too bad but I believe they could've made it a lot better.

This is the best movie which reminds me of my childhood - Aafeen

Great movie by Disney. It makes me so sad when Bambi's mother is killed by a hunter.

Classic one of the best Disney ones

Haven't seen it, but I would like to.

25Beauty and the Beast

Why is this movie not in the top ten! It's my favorite animated movie of all time (next to "The Lion King"). The characters are great, the story is crafted well, and the songs and score are fantastic (You're lying if you say that you have never gotten "Gaston" or "Be Our Guest" stuck in your head after you've heard them)! This movie was the first animated movie to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture and for good reason. "Beauty and the Beast" is a masterpiece that was among the best films of the Disney Renaissance. It has stood the test of time, and I'm certain that people will be watching this film a century from now, unlike some of the other films that are placed higher on this list. I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates high quality storytelling and breathtaking animation.

This movie was ahead of it's time as mentioned by other reviewers. It was a highly acclaimed movie that had a musical score comparable to Broadway and had technical jumps far ahead that set the bar high with films to follow. What made this special? They weren't using cg as a crutch like todays animation to substitute hard hand drawn work. They would merely use it to give 3d perspective as seen during the chandelier scene in the ballroom dance. Today's movies have gone lazy and laced over the top with effects. Hard work went into this timeless masterpiece and it shows.

This movie isn't even in the top 40? For shame top tens, for shame...

Geez this is the best film ever

26The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

This is one of the funniest movies I've seen, it is filled with laugh out loud moments, great songs, and plankton steals the krabby patty recipe and takes over the world and spongebob and Patrick are the heroes, perfect movie.

Patrick:Could I have everybody's attention... I have to use the bathroom.

Patrick:But where's the road, road, road, road, sorry

Spongebob:You Don't need a license to drive a sandwich - 201002579

Just no. 1. NO doubt this is a great movie. It is hilarious, the faces Patrick makes and the things that the two do, SPOT ON. But there is another thing that makes this movie great. I'm A GOOFY GOOBER YEAH!

Should be top 5

Speaking as a bullied girl, I did not think this movie was "perfect". In fact, watching it just left me wondering what the heck I was missing that made it so great like everyone swears it is.

Now Wreck-It Ralph, that's a perfect movie for anyone that is bullied, even has one of each in that situation gender-wise.

No, this does not deserve to be in the top 10. "I'll Make a Man Out of You" got annoying well before "Let It Go" even existed, "Reflection" is a whiny emo song, Mushu is THE most annoying Disney animal sidekick ever, and Mulan saving China does not make up for her spending the earlier parts of the movie where she wasn't wallowing in self-pity out over being discovered. The uber-feminists and social justice warriors who refuse to let this movie be the mere footnote in Disney history it should be need to get over this movie and themselves.

Milan deserves to be in the top ten. She is a great leader, and a total awesome person when it comes to being a rebel. And the songs rock. - AnonymousChick

I quite liked it to be honest. It was a good film and I recommend it to people who enjoy this kind of animation.

Magamind is one of the funniest animated movies that Dreamworks Animations have ever made. Whoever said that Madagascar and Megamind isn't "magical" enough to be top is clueless. It doesn't have to be magical to be brilliant.

With the voice of Will Ferrell and Tina Fey, how can this not be funny? Yes it might be predated by Despicable Me, but Megamind is an enjoyable romp in it's own right.

Very oringinal, unpredictable, great twists, action packed and very funny. Great!

My favorite non-disney animated movie. Hilarious and seriously underrated.

29Charlotte's Web

Why in the world is this ranked 39?!?! This is seriously one of the best movies ever! (And I'm an adult) I love Wilbur, I think he is definitely the best character. I love how he is a joyful person overall but can be emotional at times, like a normal person will. Not to mention that he's funny. One of the funniest animated characters ever. This movie has some wonderful songs too. I honestly love all of them. The voice cast is amazing and has great talent. It isn't super over violent like some other animated movies are. Not to mention this movie is heartwarming. I love how it shows the beauty of nature and the meaning of life. The story is beautiful. The movie also has a lot of meaning if you really pay attention. Overall this is one of my all time favorite movies, not just animated, all time!

WHY IS THIS SO LOW?! THIS SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 10! This is better than ANY animated movie made in since Finding Nemo, but even the best Pixar movies can't compete with the most beautiful, heartwarming, wonderful movie EVER. I actually cried during some parts, it was THAT touching! In just about every part I laughed, I cried, and I was completely moved beyond words! No other animated movie not from Disney or Pixar I've EVER SEEN has so much heart, beauty, and soul! Have you EVER seen a movie with SO MUCH values and meaning? This is the most meaningful movie of all time! GET IT TO THE TOP TEN!

This movie is depressing and makes you feel sorry for the two main characters, but I loved every minute of it. It is completely heartbreaking and sentimental. The story is moving and this movie has some of the best dialogue I've ever heard. All the characters are well thought out and unique. Wonderful movie.

This is the best movie ever! It made me cry! Should be higher at least top 10!

47!? Are you kidding me? Aladdin is my favorite disney animated movie. Aladdin has action, comedy, and romance. Not to mention it also has great characters. - Ajkloth

Not a prince but Far better than the kings! This movie has the classic songs! And animation

The Genie is the best animated/cartoon character of all time

I love Robin Williams - GBird

31Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It is a great, heartwarming tale that shows the true meaning of friendship, and it shows great quality of generosity! Disney expanded this film into one of the greatest motion pictures of all time! It is truly an amazing classic!

To imagine this movie was made with thousands of drawing papers, and the iconic story, the impression it gave; just AWESOME!

How is this 28...? It was the first animated movie. NONE of these others would have existed without Snow White. You know what, I'm done, I can't be bothered to say more. Please put me back in 1937.

Nothing like Snow White.

32The Iron Giant

A classic movie about what paranoia, war, and fear can do to people, and our tendency to shoot at anything we don't know or understand. It's beautiful and possibly a new favorite movie of mine. With a climax that'll make you cry, but an ending that's hopeful too. Amazing. - keycha1n

This masterpiece is one of the best, animated move. It deserves to have a place in the top ten best animated movies of all time. And the ending... I don't wanna spoil it, but bring tissues.

This movie will start at position Number 171. If it doesn't move up to at least number 15, this list is very inaccurate.

Probably one of the best films I've ever seen. Funny and emotional. It is truly incredible.

33All Dogs Go to Heaven
34The Secret of NIMH

Now here is a movie worth watching. Although dark and scary, and even some minor swearing and blood, this movie was, without a doubt, Don Bluth's best. Sure, he had other great movies, but neither of them could overpass this gem. Shame it's so low on the list, but that proves that this is just one of the most unknown masterpieces out there.

I can't believe this one's so low. The Secret of NIMH is without a doubt a true definition of a masterpiece. It's dark, tense and daring, with some comical moments. It's easily Don Bluth's best film, and one of the greatest animated movies of all time. It manages to pass even a lot of Disney movies.

80? Oh my god, why? This is quality animation! -

This is what Disney and Pixar should be making.

35Grave of the Fireflies

This is by far the most intense animated film that's more near to realism and gives a heart-breaking yet thought-provoking insight of the actual world that the children and adults alike should know about...

Really watch it. It will sway you. Really realistic everything its start and ending. Very sad but a true struggle depicting animated movie of all time. It is unique in its genre. No other war animated movie can even challenge it at this time. - divphygamer

This should be in the top ten, loved it really, cried like hell, even though its a 1988 creation, but still the best saddest animated movie ever...

I can't forget this movie. Ever. I still wondering and waiting for Hollywood 2 remake it as animate or movie.

37Princess Mononoke

It's awesome. It's got giant wolf gods and giant boar demons! What's not to like?

Magical. Different from every movie you see nowadays like Frozen, Toy Story, etc, but better still. Just see for yourself.

I love this movie! One of my top 5 movies of all time! Why so low on the list?

This should be higher than spirited away.

38South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

The funny thing is the message of the movie really is timeless, how parents bash the media for feeding kids stuff the parents shouldn't let them watch in the first place, in fact the message has become only more potent over time with lazier and lazier parents. Not to mention that it's a musical, and a damn hilarious one at that. How can you forget songs like; "Kyle's Mom is a B&$@&", "What would Brain Boitono do? " And of course "Uncle F&$ka" No matter how many times I see this it always brings a smile to my face.

I agree with the guy below me- I too laugh my ass off every time I see this movie. I think this movie is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen, ever. And each time I see it, somehow it gets funnier and funnier! - KennyMcCormick

South Park the movie is so funny! How the Hell did they get away with half the stuff they did? I laugh my ass off every time I see it.

39Kung Fu Panda

My all time favourite animated movie.. I'm NOT kidding or exaggerating when I say that I have watched this a thousand times. And every time I watch this, I have the same magical feeling.. And unlike many other animated flicks, Kung Fu Panda can be enjoyed by both young as well as adults.. And that's the reason why a 20 year old like me still watches it and LOVES IT

WOW! This movie has awesome kung fu action scenes and very funny parts and Po is a very loveable character

49? This movie inspired me to learn about dragons in the first place. This is better than Lion King to me.

I love it It's so funny!
