Most Underrated Animated Films

The Top Ten

1 The Iron Giant

This is my favourite animated Warner bros movie of all time

Such a great movie and a HUGE part of my childhood. Kinda sad how underrated it is but literally no one has a clue what it is or has ever even heard of it!

With how everyone will tell you this movie is underrated now, it really has transcended being "underrated" (or what people REALLY mean, overlooked) and has become a modern animated classic along with The Lion King and Toy Story. - LarkwingFlight

One of Vin Diesel's finest roles. Other than Groot, of course.

2 The Road To El Dorado

Oh, I remember my sister absolutely loved this movie when we were little. And we both still really like it, because it's extremely funny and has one of the best comedic duos in animated films. - Elric-san

Remember when Dreamworks made gold? Now they make garbage. - LarkwingFlight

How is THIS my favourite Dreamworks movie unironically? (my favourite ironically is Shrek) - DapperPickle

3 Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron
4 Treasure Planet

Well done and good story

5 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Way better than Pocahontas.

6 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

Oh my god, how I hate this atrocity - Doomed_God

Am I the only one who likes this movie? - Neonco31

I love this movie so much I bought the Blu-Ray release and watched it immediately twice in one day. The second time was with the Audio Commentary and let me just say the film still holds up with great characters, beautiful animation, a fantastic score by James Newton Howard, and an Awesome female lead named Kida (Cree Summer). This film is a must watch for Animation fans, Disney fans, Adventure fans, people who like 20,000 leagues under the sea type of stories to name a few.

It received mixed reviews upon initial release however it is phenomenal and deserves much more attention! I give the film a rating of 10/10.

7 Brother Bear
8 Over The Hedge

This movie is kind of a guilty pleasure for me. - KingFab

9 Bee Movie

This is no longer underrated.

This should be number one on this list one of my favorite cgi movies

10 Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

The Newcomers

? The Boxtrolls

The Contenders

11 Antz
12 Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas

14 The Emperor's New Groove
15 A Bug's Life
16 Ratatouille


SO EPIC! Am I the only one who used to watch this movie ALL the time?

17 The Lion King 2 - Simba's Pride

Better than Mulan 2, Hunchback 2 and Pocahontas 2.

18 An American Tail
19 Shrek The Third

It Sucks

20 Osmosis Jones

Heck yes!

21 Pocahontas

It's underrated because it's boring, in fact watch El Dorado! That's the real Disney version of this mess!

22 9
23 The Fox and the Hound
24 Cars

Count me in guys. This movie is literally my first 5 years I was a mass of cells on this earth. Oh, did you know there is a super rare card VHS? One of my life goals is to own it.

Why do so much people hate it? This movie was part of my childhood. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

I just don't understand the hate for the movie it was part of my childhood as well and overall it's one of my favorite animated films. Honestly I wish people would be at least a little more respectful to this movie because this was the last movie Joe Ranft worked on before his death and yet nobody seems to care.

You're Not Alone ModernSpongeBobSucks
This Was My Childhood Too!


Don't get fooled by the weak, silly animation.

26 Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius

So underrated.

27 Rock & Rule
28 Balto

Toy Story was great, but I think this movie deserves a chance to shine.

29 The Good Dinosaur
30 Norm of the North

One word: Bad

How is this ABOVE Bolt?! That movie was awesome! This movie is just complete garbage! A month of explosive diarrhea is more entertaining than this!

This movie is trash, don't waste your time

So underrated! - darthvadern

31 Toy Story 3

This is UNDERrated, not overrated. - LarkwingFlight

32 The Great Mouse Detective
33 Hoodwinked!

Don't get fooled by the overly dull animation! Hoodwinked is on my list of "Top 10 Best Movies With Bad Animation". Also, Jambareeqi needs a new, positive perspective on Hoodwinked. - The Ultimate Daredevil

Really underrated,it has actually great writing. - ad48

34 Minions

This is anything but underrated.

35 The Thief And The Cobbler
36 The Black Cauldron
37 Song of the Sea

Why don't more people know about this movie?

I'm baffled at how obscure this movie is. If you're an animation fan you should watch this immediately

38 Dr. Seuss' The Lorax

I love this movie

My Name Is Sy

This Is One Of My All Time Favorite Movies So Let's Say Let It Grow! - VideoGamefan5

39 Escape from Planet Earth
40 Kubo and the Two Strings

It's the highest-rated non-disney or pixar animated film ever, and yet pretty much nobody saw it. No, seriously, if you ask a hundred people about this movie, I bet about one of them would recall it.

41 The Aristocats

This is not terrible. I had it on video when I was little. You just don't understand 1970s movie's. If I was a 70s kid you would be sorry. But I'm a 90s kid so whatever.

42 Meet the Robinsons
43 The Secret of NIMH

This movie was my childhood. MY ENTIRE CHILDHOOD. Along with one of my friends too! Honestly, this was a masterpiece... - TheAlbinoWolf

Combine a Wonderful Musical Score and Brilliant Animation, and you've got a Film that the Whole Family will LOVE.

A g rated very dark said a bad word movie its very awesome - Tyoshi

44 The Legend of the Titanic

I've got a doodle book - Graffiti Doodle Mess Up A Masterpiece, its got Titanic sinking maybe I'll add an octopus lol.

One of the best kids horrors

Definitively underrated, one of my favorite

46 Cars 2
47 Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
48 Ice Age: Continental Drift
49 The Sword in the Stone
50 Bolt

A lot of people seem to disregard it, which is a shame, because it's really good.
