Most Underrated Kids Movies

These are kids' movies that were not successful or just simply not as popular as it should've been.

The Top Ten

1 Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron

This movie has the ability to teach ethics and morals to children and adults, also has the ability to to teach right from wrong! The movie was only down played because it was not a disney movie

This is was my favorite movie as a kid and it still is one of my favorites today. It's sad that it seems that its almost completely forgotten about at this point

Amazing movie! Has a strong moral message. Teaches children so many things about how to treat others. My 3yr old daughter never took her eyes off the screen.

This movie is amazing!
It has good music, a good story and a good intro.
The music in this movie is by Bryan Adams - Ajkloth

2 The Rescuers Down Under

Most underrated Disney film of all time. So unknown it often doesn't even make it on those underrated Disney film lists.

3 The Great Mouse Detective
4 Oliver and Company

This movie made my childhood! It also taught me at a very young age that it's perfectly fine to be different and accept those different from you.

5 Antz
6 The Road to El Dorado

El dorado means gold - Ajkloth

This should be No. 1.

7 Thomas and the Magic Railroad

I was so upset when I heard that this movie got bashed by critics everywhere. This was one of my favorite movies of my childhood, and this applies for many other people, as I've heard this from many people on the Internet. Critics probably hate this because they don't see this movie from a kids point of view, and they just think it's a ridiculous, normal movie.

The nostalgia critic crushed my childhood memories with his review of this movie.

Kids love Thomas the tank engine.

Come on. Just because changes were made because it was Americanized, doesn't make it a bad movie!

8 Lucky & Zorba
9 The Emperor's New Groove

Llama's! I love this movie and the show, not classic but close to that! - PugLlama

Even parents can enjoy this comical masterpiece!

This is respectable, but I hate the show.

10 Coraline

This is easily one of the most underrated movies of the 21st century, not just animation. Coraline is the animated equivalent of Pans Labyrinth, albeit Coraline draws its horror from surreal elements rather than fantasy. It is visually stunning and you truly buy into Coraline's story and the characters that surround her. She herself is a very underrated film character; she really sums up the young girl demographic at 11 years old. Not to mention some of the truly memorable scenes such as the spiderweb net.

Such a good movie maybe not for kids under 7 but for any kids above that’s its great

Oof why not

The Contenders

11 The Hunchback of Notre Dame
12 Robots

VERY underrated movie that is comparable to even Pixar's work.

13 The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep
14 The NeverEnding Story
15 Pup Star: Better 2Gether

This is my favourite movie, and its underrated as heck.

16 Dinosaur (2000)
17 Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

Who cares if some of it is inaccurate to books 1-3.
I think I remember Harry Potter books made into the films.
So Count Olaf was more comical than scary.
How about Dumbledores reaction to Harry's name put in the Goblet of Fire.

18 The Boxtrolls

Extremely underrated on Goanimate I never found a good reason to hate it. - Discord1

19 Arthur Christmas
20 The Fox and the Hound
21 Rio
22 Home On the Range
23 Megamind
24 Flight of the Navigator
25 The Powerpuff Girls Movie
26 Pup Star
27 Shorts

Boy and friends find rainbow wishing rock and have many adventures. MOST underrated movie ever! Only 8 fanfictions about it for crying out loud!

28 The Snow Queen
29 Rio 2
30 Labyrinth
31 Cars 2

A few Disney films. I think High School Musical should be in here, yes its popular but its on the list of worst kids movies and its not.

32 Inside Out
33 The Ant Bully
34 Free Birds
35 Moomins on the Riviera
36 The Secret of Nimh
37 The Last Starfighter
38 The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking
39 Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2

What is so underrated about this movie is that the Main Character's outfit is used in schools as a Dunce Cap that and that the movie is childish like Barney's Great Adventure a movie my friend thinks is underrated ( also a box office bomb)

40 Pup Star: World Tour
