Top 10 Worst Disney Movies of the 20th Century

The Top Ten
1 Inspector Gadget Inspector Gadget Product Image

I don't know why they thought it would be a good idea to cast Matthew Broderick as the main character in this movie. As an adaptation of the original cartoon, it does a very terrible job at it. It's terribly written, it's poorly edited, and the casting is terrible! I literally watched this for the first time a few weeks ago and it was just so bad! I wanted to turn it off after the first 10 minutes! I regret watching this entire trainwreck of a movie! This is definitely one of the worst Disney movies ever made and one of the worst movies based on a cartoon! It's not as bad as The Last Airbender, but it's close. As far as Disney movies go, I still think Mulan 2 and Home on the Range are worse. But Inspector Gadget is definitely an unwatchable movie from start to finish! Terrible! - MegaSoulhero

This movie makes me want put in the GO-GO Garbage! - KaylaRae897

Go go gadget oil slick LOLOL!

2 Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World Product Image

The only good Beauty and the Beast movie is the original. The remake was meh, Enchanted Christmas was pretty bad, and Belle's Magical World is god awful! There's absolutely no story! It's just a bunch of dumb segments with terrible animation! The reason for this is because there was originally going to be a BATB series but it was never picked up. And this movie is just the episodes they had already finished. And after watching this movie, I'm actually glad the series didn't happen! Probably would've been like the Little Mermaid series. By the way, I binge watched that entire series and Ariel is unlikeable in each episode! And there's a currently a Tangled series going on which I actually kind of like. And not just because Cassandra is hot and voiced by Eden Espinosa aka the best Elphaba ever. Also, the Tangled series actually has great animation! Can't say the same about the Little Mermaid series and Belle's Tragical World. - MegaSoulhero

This is literally just a collection of episodes from a BATB series that never materialized.

3 Hocus Pocus Hocus Pocus Product Image

Despite this movie having a 30% on Rotten Tomatoes, a lot of people these days seem to like it and they call it classic. I watched the Nostalgia Critic's review of the movie. That review was terrible by the way. So then I just went ahead and watched the movie. It was really dumb but got a few laughs out of me. One thing I found annoying was the witches. Just replace the "w" with a "b" and that's what they really are! But to be honest, this actually Sarah Jessica Parker's most tolerable performance. Also, the story is beyond dumb. The main character, Max, lights a candle which resurrects the three witches. Because the curse said that only a virgin could do it. Keep in mind this was directed by Kenny Ortega who directed High School Musical. However, despite its dumb story and annoying characters, I watch this movie every Halloween! I don't know what it is about it but it's just one of those movies I watch as a tradition. This movie is horrible, but I still recommend it. - MegaSoulhero

4 The Aristocats The Aristocats Product Image

Nobody wants to be a cat! So stop saying everybody wants to be a cat! I'd say this is the worst movie about cats I've seen, but I have to remember that Nine Lives exists. That movie was horrendously awful! Aristocats I can kind of understand why people like it. But it did absolutely nothing for me. The story is very weak! If you can even call it a story! The characters are forgettable! The only character I remember is Marie. But the rest of the characters I don't even know the names of! Some people might think that this movie isn't meant for people who hate cats. I'm one of those people who hate cats. But I've also met people who love cats and still didn't like this movie. It is just annoying from beginning to end! It's not the worst Disney movie ever, but it is definitely a skippable film. - MegaSoulhero

5 The Black Cauldron The Black Cauldron Product Image

This movie is pretty bad, but it has a few good things in it. Some people complain that it's too dark to be a kids film. But that's actually something I like about it. Besides, Hunchback was a lot darker than this movie and that only had a G rating whereas Black Cauldron has a PG rating. I also thought the villain was pretty awesome. The reason I hate this film, however, is it's not very memorable. There aren't a lot of things in the movie that really stand out. I also didn't care for the characters. They were just so bland and forgettable! The only character is really remember is Gurgi, and he is basically the Jar Jar Binks of the movie. There are things in this movie I like but it's not a movie that I find very interesting. - MegaSoulhero

6 Mary Poppins Mary Poppins Product Image

"I'm Mary Poppins, y'all! " Anyway, this is the part where I receive tons of hate. But to be fair, a lot of you seem to like Cars 2 for some unknown reason. So w'ever. This movie definitely didn't age well. I'm sure it was impressive around the time it came out, but these days it doesn't hold up. That clean up scene is just too silly for my taste. And I still find that scene with Bert dancing with the penguins to be very dumb and long. Yeah, this movie is unnecessarily long. There are certain scenes that could've been a lot shorter. This movie didn't really make a lot of sense to me. But at least it gave us the best line in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! - MegaSoulhero

Saying Mary Poppins is bad is showing you have guts. - cjWriter1997

7 Alice in Wonderland Alice in Wonderland Product Image
8 A Kid in King Arthur's Court A Kid in King Arthur's Court Product Image
9 Pete's Dragon Pete's Dragon Product Image

Apparently this movie was popular enough to receive its own float in the Main Street Electrical Parade. Either that or they just did it to promote the movie. I don't know. But either way, this movie is very cheesy and doesn't make any sense. Are we sure people weren't drunk while writing this? A dragon that can turn invisible? Seriously? Does anyone remember Dragon Tales? That show had a dragon that could turn invisible but it wasn't meaningless! Ord turned invisible when he got scared. Elliott turns invisible because... I'm guessing so he won't be seen but I'm pretty sure people would still be able to hear him coming or something! The animation on the dragon is pretty good though. But I'm guessing another reason why he has invisiblility powers is so they wouldn't have to animate him that much. I also really hated the songs. None of them were good. The remake of this movie was miles better! That was a remake that actually made sense since this movie wasn't very successful! They ...more - MegaSoulhero

The remake is way better

10 Hercules Hercules Product Image

One amazingly brilliant song isn't enough to save this movie! But to be fair, that song sounded phenomenal in WDW's new fireworks show, Happily Ever After. I like Ron Clements and John Musker, but this is terrible! It felt like something that someone comes up with as a joke but another person thinks the idea is great and ends up using it. The Vegas style moments don't really fit in a movie about Greek mythology. I know Aladdin had moments that poke fun at pop culture, but those jokes were done by the Genie, a magical being. So it works. It just doesn't work in Hercules! Also, I know most Disney movies aren't historically accurate, but Hercules is so inaccurate to the point where it's not even funny! Another problem is that the movie uses too many elements from Superman! The hero gets sent to Earth as a baby, gets raised by human parents, discovers who he truly is, tries to become a true hero, meets a girl, definitely Superman! - MegaSoulhero


The Contenders
11 The Rescuers The Rescuers Product Image

The best part of the entire movie is the picture of a naked lady. Other than that, this movie has a pretty weak and uninteresting story. There are a lot of cute moments, but that's about it. None of the characters were interesting and I was mostly bored while watching it. Rescuers Down Under, however, is amazing! Definitely better than this movie!

13 The Lion King The Lion King Product Image

This is a great movie and it isn't even from the 20th century! - micahisthebest

14 Frozen Frozen Product Image
15 Pocahontas Pocahontas Product Image

I don't hate this movie, but it's still not good. I really like the relationship between Pocahontas and John Smith, but the characters themselves aren't very interesting. But they're still more interesting that Anakin and Padmé from Attack of the Clones. Also, the pacing is pretty slow and doesn't very exciting up until the climax. I really love the songs though! The animation is also pretty brilliant! Another problem I have is that Pocahontas is kind of a Mary Sue. And a big example of this would be when Pocahontas first meets John Smith and at first they can't understand each other's language but then Pocahontas all of sudden, through poor writing, learns to speak English from THE WIND! - MegaSoulhero

This movie is great
