Best Animated Children's Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Lion King

My favorite movie as a small child. - booklover1

This movie deserves to die. I cannot believe they're making a live-action movie based on this.

All of the shots in this film were hand drawn amazing

Worst characters ever.

2 Big Hero 6
3 Wreck-It Ralph

This should be at the top!

4 The Simpsons Movie

No, this is a adult movie, yeah get this crap out of here.

This is just as funny as all 23 series of The Simpsons if not funnier. This has gotta be up there with the all time greats among animated features based on T.V..

The Simpsons Movie perfectly demonstrates why there have been 500+ episodes of The Simpsons. It's really awesome. Both the movie and the T.V. series.

With a PG rating by the BBFC it's freely available to kids.

6 Inside Out

This movie will make you laugh, cry, cheer, feel anxiety, and sigh. Inside Out is a clever movie done in the perspective of the emotions inside a girl's mind. It put ideas into my mind I never thought possible about how the human brain works. This film is very well done and definitely worth a watch. - RockFashionista

So entertaining

7 Finding Nemo

Favorite movie since it came out. I was 5 then, and I love as much now as I did back then.

8 Toy Story 3

It's good but kinda upsetting...

9 Up

I watched it while making out with my girlfriend at the theater and quit when the dog sed squirrel the first time thts how you now for a fact tht a movie is great

10 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

This movie is my childhood in 90 minutes. I still love this movie to this day, even after more than ten years after release.

My all time favorite movie! if you haven't watched this movie then you don't know how awesome it is! why is the lion king and the simpsons movie higher than this masterpiece of a movie! everything my childhood is is in this movie

The Contenders

11 Wall-E

This should be number 1 and also the Simpsons movies is a comedy movie it's not for kids it have bad thing bad words and bad naked people so WALL-E should be number 1

Wall-E is one of my favourite movies. I like about 10 kids movies out of the 100 I have seen and this by far is my favourite


12 Frozen

The only movie that brainwashed anybody is The Lego Movie, though that may have been an effecty of whatever crack Lego puts into their products to make people love anything and everything with those claw-handed abominations.

It brainwashed many innocent people

Poor rio and the lion king

13 Lady and the Tramp

Move over, Anna from Frozen! Lady deserves a spotlight and you don't! (Sticking tongue out and blowing raspberries at Anna from Frozen right in Anna's (Frozen) stupid, ugly face within disgust)

Better classic film than that insufferable Frozen movie! Lady all the way! Take that, Anna from Frozen!

14 Toy Story

It's so DUMB I HATE Buzz lightyear

15 Minions

Why is so overhated

Give It More Love

16 Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

In Britain these two are national treasures.

17 The Lego Movie

Ever stepped on one of these? Ouch.

18 Ratatouille

I watched ratatouille in kindergarten, but I still love watching it. It show that animals, are capable of doing anything.

19 Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods
20 Chicken Run

One of the most entertaining animations for some time. Lion King's nothing more than a cheap imitation of Watership Down.

You can't go wrong with a cast that includes, Miranda Richardson, Timothy Spall, Mel Gibson, Jane Horrocks and Julia Sahwala. - jezza0

Aardman's first feature length film is Eggs-celent! Much better than those schmutzfests Disney kept coming up with.

A memorable music score makes this "The Great Escape with Chickens" Priceless - Hamster

21 The Adventures of Tintin

This is everything that Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End should have been. Plus Steven Moffat is the greatest T.V. Screenwriter who ever lived.

This features a script by Dr Who's Steven Moffat and a cast that includes Jamie Bell, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Andy Serkis! - Chris0

23 How to Train Your Dragon

Such a great ending how he loses his foot. It makes it not so goody two shoes happily ever after anymore. - Pikachulover1
