Best Animated Movies Not Made by DreamWorks or Disney


The Top Ten

1 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

Ocean man, take me by the hand lead me to the land that you understand

I love this movie

It was funny and awesome and *sigh I love spongebob*

Take it off the list

2 Ice Age

This is certainly good, two is better but it's okay

3 Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

To be honest, I didn't like this movie at all. It shows Scrat pulling at his flesh behind his eyes. Creepy, a bad movie (in my opinion)

4 The Lego Movie

This should be #1 and SpongeBob should be #2. Both movies are really charming and funny.

Actually, it is 100% computer animation, so it counts

Its overrated it kinda dumb no offense

This isn't animated. Its stop motion. Even though its really good, it shouldn't be on this list.

5 The Simpsons Movie

This movie is complete garbage!

I'm too young o watch it but still this movie is so funny and sad

6 South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Masterpiece movie - iliekpiez


Evil eric

7 Despicable Me

One of the best animated movies ever! Why is it number 8? I mean, Despicable Me 2 is really great, but the original is also awesome. Hilarious! Amazing! Terrific! Has a great plot and great characters and Agnes is the definition of adorable! - samoodle

Either this one or Ice Age should take top spot.

You know what, this movie is better than the sequel, isn't it?
The three girls, Margo, Edith and Agnes are very cute!
I think this movie must be in second or third place.
Overall, this movie is a FANTASTIC movie!

8 Despicable Me 2

One of the few sequels that I liked more than the original. - AnnaOfArendelle332

I agree with you.

9 Rio

Simply the best movie animated by Blue Sky studios. - DragonPrey

This is Disney. Read the website name properly. It says "Best Animated Movie NOT MADE BY DREAMWORKS OR Disney." I like it, but it should not be here. I suggest you put it on "Best Disney Animated Film"

44 The Secret of Kells
45 Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie
46 The Angry Birds Movie


47 The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water
48 The Secret Life of Pets

This should be higher

I Liked It In My OPINION
It Was Hilarious Because Of 1 Specific Character
SNOWBALL(Note-The Other Characters Are Funny But Not Hilarious Like This Crazy Bunny)

Please Respect My Opinion

49 Kubo and the Two Strings

Beautiful animation, likeable characters and a gripping story. Quite a bit darker than typical Disney/Dreamworks fare, but still very enjoyable.

50 Sing

This movie is good!
