Top Ten Forgotten Disney Animated Movies

The Top Ten

1 The Fox and the Hound

I love this movie, because thought Copper and Todd are suppose to be enemies they struggle to keep their friendship alive.

This was a great movie infinite times better than Frozen crap

I agree this movie is completely forgotten under all the Disney magic. This is a mildly good movie even as predictable as it is. I prefer the book but it makes for a great movie. When I was younger I wouldn't even think of forgetting this movie, it deserves a better sequel!

No words to describe how much this movie means to me. The reason people forget is is simply that most of Disney’s 1980’s movies are still forgotten to this day (minus The Little Mermaid). I grew up watching this all the time. I knew the movie and words by heart over time. The Fox and the Hound really shouldn’t be forgotten. One of Disney’s all time classics (which this movie is based off of a book that really isn’t kid’s material).

2 The Emperor's New Groove

Not is forgotten but is a very very good movie

Not as much forgotten as ferociously underrated, but still hilarious all the same. In 20 years, people will have forgotten it.

One of my favourite movies! So funny

I feel like anyone who has seen it can't forget it. It's so damn unique and quotable

3 Oliver & Company

Awesome movie. I haven't seen it in a very long time. I don't even remember a lot of it. But I remember it was SO good.

This film is totally forgotten about. I love this film and the songs the whole film fitted together brilliantly

This movie was amazing! One of my childhood favorites. It's not as good as others but definitely worth a watch - superfan

I have never seen this

4 The Rescuers

I love this movie so much. There is not way that I would ever forget this movie. I first watched this when I was only 3 months old. I watched this again and again for so many years. I couldn't remember everything that happened in the movie but the song "who will rescue me" still remains fresh in my memories!

Am I the only one who thinks that this movie was better than the second one? Even till this day I still find myself laughing at this movie. - nintendofan126

One of my best childhood moments. I almost forgotten about this movie until my young Sister was watching it and I remember how happy I was as a kid.

Brings back childhood memories. - NightJinx

5 The Aristocats

This is definitely one of my favorite Disney movies. - nintendofan126

I love this movie so much. This is on the list for worst Disney movie's and I couldn't understand it. I love this movie and it is definitely one of the best Disney movie's - Froglamb

A classic. The best animated film I have seen so far.

Marie is my spirit animal.

6 Brother Bear

I love this, my friend once got in trouble at school for telling the teacher that this was her favorite movie, and somehow "making a Disney movie up"

I think that is is by far the most underrated Disney film, other candidates could be The Emperor's New Groove and Lilo and Stitch - SidneyHando

I love the Phil Collins soundtrack. Good story about what family really is. Highly underrated movie here.

It's so good

7 The Great Mouse Detective

My all time favorite Disney movie. It's a shame it isn't well known, because it really is a fantastic movie, plus it basically kept Disney from tanking in the 80's long enough for The Little Mermaid to save the company. - theriskyfixins

This should totally be number one it is like this movie never was made none of my friends even know about this movie.

This is easily the most underrated Disney movie of all time. I love it! - olliv

This movie always be in my head for years.

8 Lady and the Tramp

Beautiful movie. Honestly, if I had kids I would make them watch this movie instead of the new ones. This is so much better, and it melts my heart every time I hear the soundtrack.

I love this movie can't forget

Beautiful love story suitable for all ages. Reminds us of innocence that are still to been seen on T.V.

Same as 7

9 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

People don't seem to realize this is on the level of many classics. Ok, big deal. The gargoyles are mediocre. BIG DEAL! Everything else about the movie is amazing, especially the villain, Judge Claude Frollo.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time, not only because it tells a beautiful and heartbreaking story, but because of the wonderful characters and the darkness of this universe. I also just love it for the simple reason that it's so underrated - hefaus

I love how Disney took a risk by stepping back into the dark side, especially after what happened to The Black Cauldron. The animation, songs, memorable characters, and overall beauty and darkness of the movie makes it stand out from the crowd. - theriskyfixins

I ' LOVE THIS MOVIE! - campbelln20

10 Lilo & Stitch

Lilo and Stitch is loved by everyone this is not forgotten.

Not forgotten. As much as everyone complains about Disney overdoing Frozen, how about the fact that Disney has decided that STITCH is somehow as iconic as Mickey, Donald, and Goofy and really doesn't deserve it?

This has got to be tied for one of my favorite Disney movies of all time. However, I wouldn't put it high on this list because it is not forgotten. - Disneylover

Everyone is talking about some disney movies or films there they do a countdown except for this one how can they forgot it?

The Contenders

11 Robin Hood

Why does nobody talk about this movie at all? It was hilarious. In my opinion it is like ZOOTOPIA only in the past. This is one of those movies that is really good and funny and nobody talks about it at all. Then there are movies that aren't as good and with annoying songs it took over the internet. And are overrated, that's Frozen for you right there.

Maid Marian is the best Disney princess. Graceful and dignified, and yet not a damsel in distress. Much better than the bratty Elsa who lets her OWN PEOPLE almost FREEZE TO DEATH while she sings a SONG about the cold not bothering HER anyway.

Robin Hood was hilarious. I can't believe it never got all the attention.

Meh I love Robin Hood the clean since it's an episode of my favorite T.V. show. - Ilovestephanie

12 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

My favorite movie. (Don't judge me

The part where Kida and the Heart of Atlantis become one is hauntingly beautiful, I hate that everyone forgets this one

Could never forget this movie! I go way back with this movie!

I watched this a child, never forgot it and how it was supposed to have a T.V. show about the gang looking for Atlantian artifacts on the surface.

13 The Rescuers Down Under

I think this film Is better than the original because of how much excitement this movie has compared to the original. Not saying the original was bad just not very exciting

The animation as well as the outstanding score was the reason that this was better than the original. - bigg3469

Great follow up to the original


14 The Black Cauldron

You see? It's so forgotten that it didn't even make number 1 on this list because people forgot about this.

Yeah, I'm the only one in my class who has seen this movie, I LOVED The Horned King, he made me fall in love with this movie, he's my favorite Disney character EVER! People give this movie more love!

I try to talk about it with my classmates but they have no idea what I am talking about. Why is this not number one?!

This was supposed to be a block buster when it came out and she was supposed to be one of the main disney princesses, well now ask people. nobody has heard of this

15 Dinosaur

Totally forgotten! I think this is CGI or something :0 - Hanasaki

I used to watch this over and over. When I was little.

This movie is certainly one of the worst Disney movies, the trailer was promising but then the voices were added in last minute... - DapperPickle

Oh my god, this movie sucked. One of the most boring things I’ve ever watched. The CGI is crap too. Point is, don’t watch it - PackFan2005

16 Dumbo

Dumbo is not forgotten. It will always be one of the awesome classics. You can buy this movie anywhere and everywhere.

The names pretty funny I mean seriously DUMBO laugh out loud

How this a classic

17 Tarzan

By far my favorite Disney movie. It's so sad that more people can't appreciate it.

Tarzan is my favourite Disney movie and yes is very forgotten, I barely hear anyone talk about Tarzan or like it.why so much hate guys? just because it wasn't the typical princess movie doesn't mean that wasn't good movie!

I love tarzan especially the songs there so good

A great movie I love the songs in this film

18 Bambi

Why is this film forgotten? Well the answer is simple, it's a classic. Most people care about Disney films after Walt died and they are predictable. They like Lion King, Beauty and Beast, Aladdin, Frozen, Tangled and so on, but there are people like me who like the classic older ones a lot better. This was the 2nd Disney film to have someone die and stay dead, (Fantasia was the 1st and that was a masterpiece) but Bambi is a great film. And it should be recognized by all and loved more. It's the perfect family film. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

It's a beautiful film. It should be talked about more. Lilo and Stitch and Wreck It Ralph are popular, this WAS popular, now it's just a comparison between Mufasa and Bambi's mom. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak

I cried during watching the movie when I was really little,Bambi lost his mother. ;_; - SamuiNeko

I love Bambi he is adorable. [ Fun fact Bambi was Walt Disney's favorite movie ]

19 The Sword in the Stone

People rarely have the slightest bit of respect for the work of art.

I love this movie so much! It carries such a strong sense of the classic Disney magic that we don't really have nowadays. - theriskyfixins

This movie means the world to me. Hello to my happy childhood! Thanks Merlin and Arthur!

Sadly, I've never seen this, but now I'm sure as hell gonna do it - hefaus

How on earth is this 2nd to last?

23 Pete's Dragon

Oh ya this is stupid little kid stuff. Good for young people.

24 Chicken Little

Everyone hates this film just because it was the first ever cgi disney movie. Well Toy Story was the first ever cgi movie and everyone didn't hate it, everyone was raving about it! It is funny, exciting, heartwarming, and depressing as a strange little chicken isn't accepted by the general public.

I think this movie is okay. Except for the dad. - CartoonsGirl

I thought this was decent, except buck. - DapperPickle

I like this movie :3
i'm a kid by the way...

25 Bolt

Bolt is the best disney movie ever it is my childhood

Yep, I really liked this movie - PackFan2005

It's an OK movie, I didn't see anything wrong with it. You should at least appreciate the message it brings about the relationship between aa dog and it's owner,as well as the reality of life.

26 The Incredibles

This will always be one of my favorites. - nintendofan126

They need more merchandise and another movie.

The Incredibles 2 is coming in 2019. Curse you 2019. I can't wait three more years. - Anonymousxcxc

If this is forgotten, then why are there so many sequels?

My 2nd favorite movie

27 Fun and Fancy Free

Isn't this the movie where Donald goes insane from starvation and tries to murder the cow?

28 Wreck-It Ralph

Am I the only person who thinks this movie is overrated? I mean don't get me wrong it's a good movie I just didn't like it that much, this is also coming from a major gamer I mean like I said before I like it but one of the best animated movies of all time? Let alone one of the best disney animated movies is a little crazy, I'd probably give it a 6.5 out of 10, but that's just my opinion.

Yes, this movies is only a few years old, had a sizeable fanbase, had a fair amount of merchandise, and even managed to hold its own in the face of "Frozen". But once "Big Hero 6" came out, "Wreck-It Ralph" was forgotten.

This movie is actually very forgotten. Like, it's like the only animated movie on this list, and it's still forgotten! While everyone else was swooning over "Frozen" and "Brave" this beautiful movie was forgotten. Rip 2012-2012 Hopefully the sequel will bring the viewers back to the original. (The original is better though, in the sequel Ralph just acts like a doofus.)

29 Alice In Wonderland

I do believe it's at least a little forgotten, just because everyone know Alice but they don't really know/remember the actual movie. - theriskyfixins

A movie based on my favorite classic,love it. - SamuiNeko

The writers of this movie knew only three letters of the alphabet: L, S, and D.

30 The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

Not forgotten. If it is, explain all the Pooh rides and merchandise.

A timeless classic - PackFan2005

Awww... I love winnie and piglet sooo much

31 Meet the Robinsons

Are you serious? Why does nobody talk about this. It has a good message Keep Moving Forward

My family is IN LOVE with this film.

Love this it's not the best disney movies but should be in top 40 Disney movies

Waay too forgotten, and it’s a good movie - PackFan2005

32 The Brave Little Toaster

This movie was great!

The title is extremely funny!

I loved this movie

My childhood.

33 Tangled

Everyone was talking about it before, but after Frozen was released everybody just forgot about it.

Why does no one remember it? The people who point the characters and the movie overrated, need to suicide and rot in hell! I'M wishing Frozen and Moana had been never released, they are chappy and overrated

Simply the last good Disney movie except for Inside out and the good dinossaur

34 Saludos Amigos

This has to be higher on the list

Completely unjustly underrated, despite it being a fantastic movie - hefaus

35 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This is not forgotton? It's the first Disney movie, this would never, ever be forgotton - jaythomo2

Not forgotten. Saks Fifth Ave in NYC had a tribute to the movie last Xmas.

I can't believe it's attualy forgotten

THIS IS NOT FORGOTTEN! Because it is the first, it has ban released on Digital HD and might be released in 4K if Disney signs a deal with sony to make it 4K - Maddox121

36 The Lion King II: Simba's Pride


37 The Jungle Book

It is also my favorite movie but none talks about it anymore :(

I Love this movie!

I wish this movie got more love...

38 Hercules

This is definitely forgotten about. You don't hear anybody talk about it anymore. - nintendofan126

This is one of my favorites!

It is 71?! R u kidding me? I love this movie. - Disneylover

While it’s true no one really talks about this anymore, it's not entirely forgotten. For example Ariana Grande performed Zero to Hero at the 2015 Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, and the clip of Baby Hercules and Baby Pegasus (with Hera) was featured in Disney’s World of Color’s Xmas show in California Adventure in Anaheim.

39 Sleeping Beauty

Every one dislikes this movie becuase Aurora has 18 minutes of screen time.
You guys know what aurora used those 18 minutes well unlike Merida who's just a spoiled brat - Disneymagickingdoms

40 Fluppy Dogs

1. Why is Aladdin the cover? 2. It only aired once or twice, and I remember watching it on my babysitter's VHS where she recorded it. Too bad this didn't become a full cartoon series, if anything they should reboot it and try again.

Why is there and Aladdin cover? - shawnmccaul22

This 1986 Disney movie is amazing! It is such a shame no one remembers it. Who could forget the Fluppys?

41 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Who would want to remember this?

Its not forgotten

42 The Three Caballeros

Mm-hmm. This was a thing! - higgsboson2142

I seriously can't tell how many times I've seen this, and although it's a long time ago since last time I saw it, I'm still humming "Baiaa..." - hefaus

43 101 Dalmatians

Loved this movie - PackFan2005


44 A Goofy Movie

I like this movie mostly because it focuses more around goofy and his son max. - nintendofan126

This should be higher. Nobody even knew Goofy had a son in the first place!

Watched this one as a kid (nearly 16 now). Wow, time has passed - PackFan2005

45 Recess: School's Out

It's been years since I've seen this movie. But it's still really good. - nintendofan126

The funniest movie I've in my childhood

46 The Pirate Fairy
47 Pinocchio
48 Pocahontas

Pocahontas is the best Disney movie that's ever been forgotten about. Pocahontas needs to be on more merchandise, she doesn't get enough attention and neither does this amazing movie. Pocahontas is brave, and her love with John Smith is absolutely amazing because she's an Indian and he's a white man, both from different sides, but she ends up bringing peace between both sides.

Gosh seriously? This is so forgotten that nobody even added it (I just added it now) way underrated and definitely one of my favorites


TRUE ^ this has a strong female lead character that is much better than Elsa,but people still remember Frozen over this.Just rememeber this:Pocahontas almost got killed by her father by getting in front of John Smith when he was about to get killed and what did Elsa do? Answer:Fudge the whole kingdom up and run away

49 Big Hero 6

This will NEVER be forgotten. That's why it's last.

Only came out last year, SJWs praising it as if it were the Citzen Kane of animated films... How is this forgotten again?

50 Home On the Range

I think I've always had the feeling that this fantastic movie is very underrated, but I've seen it more times than I can count.

How is this worse than Chicken Little.

This movie is gold... There's nothing more to say - hefaus

Also, Teachers Pet.
