Top Ten Animated Movies Of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Kung Fu Panda 2

It should be the first best movie

The fact that this is behind Frozen, the Lego Movie, Big Hero 6 and Tangled has made me lose my faith in humanity. This is one of Dreamworks' best films and is on the same level as How To Train Your Dragon and the Prince of Egypt.

Movie with a great villain that you can love

This movie sucks Frozen is way more better.

42The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

I love this movie! I saw it with my dad not so long ago. Definitely deserves a spot in the top ten.

I like this movie. But I expect 75% of the movie spongebob being out of water - Sassy13crown

Not as good as the fully animated ones

This movie was pretty terrible to be honest

How is Frozen and NIMH higher than this? This is one of the best Disney movies ever. - Tacocheese

How on earth is this in forty. I love it. Sure dumbos drunken thoughts are semi creepy but every movie has its flaws.

44A Boy Named Charlie Brown

This is good but the 2015 Peanuts is better.


The best, the best, the best! How on EARTH was this not even on the list?! It's the most romantic film of all time and is also the best made. The love and care that went into it's creation is like nothing else

Should be in Top 15. And is even far better than frozen.. Frozen is a good movie but Tangled had great plot, villains, more accurate timing and animation plus amazing songs.. From which, some of the things were a huge lack in frozen.. No offense to frozen being a top one but if frozen is the highest grossing movie then tangled is just underrated

. This is my favorite animated movie. This should really be #1. This is the best fairytale ever. you guys r insane. This deserves to be first

The animation is perfect, especially the lantern scene. - GBird

Number 40? Are you serious!?!? MegaMind was worthy enough to make the top ten but this masterpiece is below some of the worst.

I saw this movie when I was a young kid and I LOVED IT. It had beautiful animation with some of the greatest music compositions. This also introduced me to music before that I listened to nursery rhymes. The music in this movie intrigued me and still does.

As for story the movie doesn't have a main story but each composition has its own little theme and sometimes tells a small story as if it's a ballet. There is not one moment I was not entertained. Another thing is that the music and visuals tell the story so there is no need for dialogue. Each bit of animation matches up perfectly with the music and is in perfect sync.

It's hard to choose which part is my favorite, but I'd have to go with The Rite of Spring. I just love how the scene opens up in space and as you get closer to earth the music gets more chaotic setting the mood for the all ...more

Often referred to as the original uncut musical of its time but did contained 2 extremely heavy animals becoming ballerinas. Perfect for pre-teen (tween) and teenage girls (and older women) who want to become beautiful ballerina dancers in the near future (especially my cute girlfriend). - playstationfan66

Honestly how can you say that Madagascar is more beautiful and magical than fantasia. My favourite animated film sleeping beauty isn't even on this excuse of a list

Fantasia is the greatest animated movie ever!

Chilling... I love it! It is the most creative scary movie I've ever seen. Great animation too! Why is it not higher?

This gave me nightmares and trouble sleeping without the lights on! But don't refrain, that only shows how powerful and well made it is! - keycha1n

I couldn't look at buttons for three years

I love this movie! - FrozenHatingPokefan

48Shrek 2

I liked the original, but I still think the sequel is superior. I still can't quite watch it the same way though... - Garythesnail

I still remember seeing this in theaters. I was 4 at the time. - Pony

I still prefer the original but this is still a ripper film.

Better than the first

Big Hero 6 and Wreck-It ralph are better than this but this is a hell allot better than Frozen

For me, it's on the same level of greatness as Inside Out.

In many ways, this is the most unique disney movie ever made since snow white. The deeply involved political message is what makes it stand out, and makes you think. The comedy is great, too. like the part with Chong from cheech and chong in the naked club. I only put this behind The incredibles and The lion king.

Best Ever, Great Characters, Great Plot, Heartwarming, And Gave the Best Message in an Animated Movie Ever - ChiefMudkip

This should be #1! I love this movie and there is no reason to hate Akira at all!

LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT AKIRA! Akira is a visually stunning, game changing movie, that is easily one of my favorite movies! How it is down this far is beyond me. It is the movie that elegidly brpught anime to the American population, and iconic with all sense of the word. Also, we all eant Kaneda's bike. We all know we do.

53Rise of the Guardians

One of the best dreamworks movies. Well done dreamworks. I heard it was from the creators of how to train your dragon and it is my favorite so I knew I would like it. I was correct! The villain in awesome and the Easter bunny is so funny especially when he is small. Well done dreamworks

Best Animated Movie I've Seen This year! You have got to see it, you will love it. Best DreamWorks Movie Made ever this year. This one of my Favourite DreamWorks movie ever.

My childhood heroes in one movie! I especially loved Jack Frost, Bunny, Sandy, North, and of course the villian, Pitch!

Why the hell is this not higher.

55Lady and the Tramp

Honestly compared to the 20 up above, this is a master piece. How is it so low?

For all those people looking for an adorable cartoon film THIS IS IT.

Just watched this movie with my 4 year old twin daughters.

56My Neighbor Totoro

Yet another Hayao Miyazaki masterpiece; a magical realization of the emotional turbulence of childhood, as well as a fantasy of unmatched imagination. The titular character is so endearing that you'll wish that it was your neighbour too.

I always smiles when watching this movie. I don't know why because it's not even funny. But, yeah it just makes me smile.

Every time I think about this movie it makes me smile. You'll love this movie if you have a younger sister.

This movie should be number 1, no question

59The Little Prince (2016)
60The Little Mermaid

This movie is so amazing! The characters, songs like under the sea and part of your world are all completely awesome!

This movie restored Disney to it's former grandeur. How could it possibly be so low on this list. What a shame

This is my favorite animated movie, ever! What an enjoyable classic with everything perfect.

This is the best animated movie out there. What a score.
