Best Animated Children's Movies


The Top Ten

1 The Lion King

I love this movie

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

2 Big Hero 6
3 The Simpsons Movie

The Simpsons USED to be a kids show, at least before 1997.

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.

5 Finding Nemo

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

6 Rio

This movie is amazing! Great animation, great music, lovely characters (Rafael rules! ), greta job for 20th Century Fox... And... RIO 2 please! - ilar17

7 Inside Out

It's so cute, Inside out is like my favorite movie.

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

8 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.

It's a contender yes

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

9 Toy Story 3

It's good but kinda upsetting...

10 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

The Contenders

11 Lady and the Tramp

tramp lol

12 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


13 Frozen

I can't believe the Spongebob movie is above this awesomeness. This is one of, if not THE, best animated movies that's ever happened.

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

Ewww. this movie is poop.

Give It More Love

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

In Britain these two are national treasures.

27 The Lego Movie

Ever stepped on one of these? Ouch.

28 Ratatouille

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

29 Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods
30 Chicken Run

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

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

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

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

31 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

Dis is my favourite movie

32 Monsters University
33 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

many dragons and many vikings in this movie and this movie should be in the top 5

Why and how does the main character (Forgot his name) lose a foot?
