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

The reason it is forgotten is because it sucks

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!

2 Oliver & Company

Only Disney movie to star Billy Joel makes it amazing, but often forgotten for its mediocre box office and its time of release (just before The Little Mermaid kicked off Disney's 90's Renaissance).

Oliver & company is based on a classic

I have never seen this

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.

3 The Emperor's New Groove

Hilarious and unique

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

Lol no we watched this like 5 times within 3rd grade and 5th grade at school. - Luckys

Not is forgotten but is a very very good movie

4 The Rescuers

Brings back childhood memories. - NightJinx

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!

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.

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

5 The Aristocats

People say it's racist because the mane characters who are proper are white but white (pure white not skin color white) signifies Elegance so that's stupid and it's sexist because the girl cats need saving but so do the male kittens and the white kitten is swag "ladies don't start fights but they can end them"!

love it/.

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

6 The Great Mouse Detective

Top 10 Disney Movie

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

7 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

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

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 THIS MOVIE! - campbelln20

Never watch this movie, it was really depressing. I was going to watch it to celebrate for my exams and I wasn't expecting it to be so scary

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.

We are siamese if you please. We are siamese if you don't please.


9 Brother Bear

Loved this so much when I was younger, and I still love it now

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"

It's so good

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

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 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 ]

12 Robin Hood

This movie is fantastic! I've watched it more times than I can count, and I'll keep on watching it over and over again! - hefaus

'The Phony King of England' was a funny song.

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

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.

13 Dumbo

If this is forgotten then why are there Dumbo rides everywhere?

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

1 Comment
14 The Sword in the Stone

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

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

15 The Black Cauldron

So forgotten. Lots of people think its bad, and I wont argue that some parts aren't the greatest, but also keep in mind that the crew were forced to cut over 10 minutes of the film. Overall, the animation is beautiful and I love Eilonwy. - theriskyfixins

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

I love this movie, dark and gloomy and completely different from other disney movies. A true classic! - hefaus

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

16 The Princess and the Frog

I love that this is an African American Disney princess because we don't have very many of them and I think that we should have way more!

It is underrated since Frozen and Moana are somehow popular, but this movies is way better than those two. I love them all, but this is better because it's in 2D animation.

17 Tarzan

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!

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

No one can forget its beautiful soundtrack

I love tarzan especially the songs there so good

18 Pete's Dragon

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

19 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


20 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.

21 Chicken Little

This movie was hated by so many people.. but how can you look at this and not enjoy its stupidity?

@DapperPickle - That’s because nobody likes him.

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

22 Treasure Planet

I was torn between voting Brother Bear and this. At least people cared enough for the bear movie to make a sequel and a Pixar rip-off called Brave. No one outside of a tiny cult following even remember this. This movie is much more deserving of it's following than the Black Cauldron, even though I love it as well, because unlike The Black Cauldron, Treasure Planet was actually pretty darn good. It comes on T.V. on occasion on Disney JR, though it's too dark for the typical preschooler. It's still awesome.

I still can't get over this movie, it's so amazing! - hefaus


Captain Amelia is sexy I remember morph and silver and most of the characters

23 Fantasia

Why have people forgotten this magnificent little pearl? Why!? - hefaus

The best disney movie of all time

Are these two born the year this was released?

Great movie and I love the Rite of Spring

24 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

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

I liked this movie as a kid; now it's a lot more cringey.

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.

My favorite movie. (Don't judge me

25 Fun and Fancy Free

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

Yes. I'll admit, that part is pretty scary, but I really like this film! I wish it was higher on this list, because it's so forgotten that people don't even know about it! - Disney1994

26 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.

27 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

I hated this movie when I was 3 cause it scared me

28 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

29 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

30 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.

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

This was a great movie. The message it brought and the story was by far, better than the one seen in other movies at that time. Keep moving forward,but never forget those little wonders in life.

32 The Brave Little Toaster

Good when you had never even heard of it.

I loved this movie

This movie was great!

The title is extremely funny!

33 Saludos Amigos

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

This has to be higher on the list

34 The Lion King II: Simba's Pride


35 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...

36 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

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

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

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

37 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

38 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Who would want to remember this?

Its not forgotten

39 The Incredibles

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

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

My 2nd favorite movie

40 The Pirate Fairy
41 The Three Caballeros

Oh my god I love this movie!

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

Mm-hmm. This was a thing! - higgsboson2142

42 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?

43 Home On the Range

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

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.

Also, Teachers Pet.

44 Mulan

Not forgotten. Everyone keeps singing that stupid song from it, and feels the need to remind everyone else that Mulan saved China without any real prompting.

45 A Goofy Movie

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

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

46 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

47 Wall-E
48 101 Dalmatians

Loved this movie - PackFan2005


49 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
