Top Ten Animated Movies Of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Lego Movie

This film was a blast to watch at the theaters, the story was a breath of fresh air, the animation is the BEST I've ever seen, and the characters unforgettable. If it's still in theaters, go see it NOW.

I went through 40 movies to find this one. It's just that good. Morgan freeman as a blind wizard! Lego batman building baby carriages, green lantern is still a loser (unless you read the comics, then you know the real reason), and will ferrel! I dreamed of this movie, it is the god of animated movies!

Okay let me get this over and done with now. I don't understand why Disney Pixar etc are deciding to place in so many sex jokes in kids films now but I can ensure you it's something special. Also I'll like to say about how funny some of the parts are especially my favorite guy benny. When he is flying through all the different worlds shouting spaceship it is just 10 10 and it's just hands down one of the best movies probably ever this is just great work but why is it 20! But still great

Should be higher, I would say at least top 5 - Augustocannoli

22 Beauty and the Beast

Why is this movie not in the top ten! It's my favorite animated movie of all time (next to "The Lion King"). The characters are great, the story is crafted well, and the songs and score are fantastic (You're lying if you say that you have never gotten "Gaston" or "Be Our Guest" stuck in your head after you've heard them)! This movie was the first animated movie to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture and for good reason. "Beauty and the Beast" is a masterpiece that was among the best films of the Disney Renaissance. It has stood the test of time, and I'm certain that people will be watching this film a century from now, unlike some of the other films that are placed higher on this list. I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates high quality storytelling and breathtaking animation.

This movie was ahead of it's time as mentioned by other reviewers. It was a highly acclaimed movie that had a musical score comparable to Broadway and had technical jumps far ahead that set the bar high with films to follow. What made this special? They weren't using cg as a crutch like todays animation to substitute hard hand drawn work. They would merely use it to give 3d perspective as seen during the chandelier scene in the ballroom dance. Today's movies have gone lazy and laced over the top with effects. Hard work went into this timeless masterpiece and it shows.

This movie isn't even in the top 40? For shame top tens, for shame...

Higher than lego movie and lion king should be 2 before sleeping beauty and after the little mermaid and I'm a boy - Belle9090

23 Toy Story 2

I like all 3 movies equally. They are all in my top 10 - Sabbath

Why so low on the list. - anonymous1

Not the best, but I had lots of fun watching it.

Amazing movie

24 The Secret of NIMH

Now here is a movie worth watching. Although dark and scary, and even some minor swearing and blood, this movie was, without a doubt, Don Bluth's best. Sure, he had other great movies, but neither of them could overpass this gem. Shame it's so low on the list, but that proves that this is just one of the most unknown masterpieces out there.

I can't believe this one's so low. The Secret of NIMH is without a doubt a true definition of a masterpiece. It's dark, tense and daring, with some comical moments. It's easily Don Bluth's best film, and one of the greatest animated movies of all time. It manages to pass even a lot of Disney movies.

80? Oh my god, why? This is quality animation! -

This is what Disney and Pixar should be making.

25 The Fox and the Hound

I cried when I watched this for the first time! Best movie! Shows How everyone changes as they grow up! - abhishah901

This film was my childhood.

THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE IN THE UNIVERSE! If you haven't seen, YOU MUST! It's on Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and a site I found called putlocker. DO WHAT YOU MUST TO SEE IT!

The best movie ever. it should be in the first.

26 Frozen

This film is bad. It's not awful but it's bad. First off, it's like many things that's the reason for a song's popularity. Let It Go only became popular because of this movie. And, I want a clear answer on where Elsa got her powers from. Thirdly, how can Elsa stay in that room for years without needing to eat or go to the bathroom. Also, what was the point of the king and queens death. Also, when Anna steps outside that castle, no one watches her. It's like she's not a princess. Finally, LET IT GO TORTURED ME SINCE THE MOVIE CAME OUT! Everyone at school was annoying me with that song that I would rather sit through that crap once than hear people sing Let It Go everyday.

I hate this movie as much as you do, but in the movie, during the trolls scene, they say she was born with her powers. It's just very quiet. Not enough proof? Read the screenplay PDF online.

This film is insanely overrated, I mean- what kind of maniac decides to run and freeze an entire kingdom because of "fear"? The story could have been made into a great movie, but instead became one of the most overrated films of all time. The voice acting was mediocre and so were the songs. Nothing happens in the movie that was well written, or to sum it up, good. Olaf is just- useless. He does absolutely NOTHING that is important to the story. The plot was predictable and the characters to me were rather flat. I would not watch this movie EVER AGAIN.

Like usual it ain't the best. But the fact that it got this high so quickly really says something. It's a wonderful, satisfying movie, it's not often every single character (except for that one guy) is likeable as hell, the songs are so damn catchy and well sung. It's only fault is the ending, which I figured out in the first 20 minutes of the film, but it's intended for little kids so why the hell does it matter. A 10/10 for me, made me so damn happy and I can't wait to see it agin.

I don't care what you say but this movie is great. And I don't know what any of you are saying, everybody hates this movie. So I don't know why you are saying "Oh my god stop liking this movie". This movie isn't perfect but it is still better than inside out... Ohhh I said it! - Augustocannoli

27 Fantasia

Number 40? Are you serious!?!? MegaMind was worthy enough to make the top ten but this masterpiece is below some of the worst.

I saw this movie when I was a young kid and I LOVED IT. It had beautiful animation with some of the greatest music compositions. This also introduced me to music before that I listened to nursery rhymes. The music in this movie intrigued me and still does.

As for story the movie doesn't have a main story but each composition has its own little theme and sometimes tells a small story as if it's a ballet. There is not one moment I was not entertained. Another thing is that the music and visuals tell the story so there is no need for dialogue. Each bit of animation matches up perfectly with the music and is in perfect sync.

It's hard to choose which part is my favorite, but I'd have to go with The Rite of Spring. I just love how the scene opens up in space and as you get closer to earth the music gets more chaotic setting the mood for the all ...more

Okay I get that a lot of people like this movie and all but I refuse to call it a movie, maybe an animated play maybe. Sorry but I come to a movie for the story not to look at pretty visuals. And even then I guess the animation may have looked great back then but no I don't want to look at animation so old that hitler may have enjoyed this movie. - Augustocannoli

Often referred to as the original uncut musical of its time but did contained 2 extremely heavy animals becoming ballerinas. Perfect for pre-teen (tween) and teenage girls (and older women) who want to become beautiful ballerina dancers in the near future (especially my cute girlfriend). - playstationfan66

I know that I am seriously against Frozen hate, but Frozen doesn't deserve a higher spot than Fantasia. - 445956

28 The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

This is one of the funniest movies I've seen, it is filled with laugh out loud moments, great songs, and plankton steals the krabby patty recipe and takes over the world and spongebob and Patrick are the heroes, perfect movie.

Patrick:Could I have everybody's attention... I have to use the bathroom.

Patrick:But where's the road, road, road, road, sorry

Spongebob:You Don't need a license to drive a sandwich - 201002579

All SpongeBob stuff rocks

I personally think this movie should be higher enough but I can see it's flaws enough to say that 26 might be where this movie belongs - Augustocannoli

29 Aladdin

My absolute fave... It's funny, heartwarming, and has good characters:

Aladdin: the main character. Yes he's flawed but he has so many good traits. He's clever, fun, caring, brave, romantic, and insecure. Sure he can be selfish and rude but he overcomes that, shown by freeing genie. So overall, I love Aladdin.

Jasmine: she is so sassy, intelligent, kind, that it's hard to hate her. Oh and my, my what gorgeous girl... ! Jasmine is really funny and her facials are fab. I love her attitude. Does she change throughout the film... Not really... But does she need to, she awesome!

Genie: HILARIOUS! ' I love his songs his jokes his everything. He really likes Aladdin, by the end. I think they are true friends. His intro is hilarious. I love it when Aladdin outsmarts him... He's so cool.

Magic carpet: <3 he doesn't speak but he's so funny. I love when he's messing with Abu. It's really cool of disney to give him the personality/"facials". He doesn't ...more - baconyum

47!? Are you kidding me? Aladdin is my favorite disney animated movie. Aladdin has action, comedy, and romance. Not to mention it also has great characters. - Ajkloth

Not a prince but Far better than the kings! This movie has the classic songs! And animation

Higher than frozen please - Belle9090

30 South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

The funny thing is the message of the movie really is timeless, how parents bash the media for feeding kids stuff the parents shouldn't let them watch in the first place, in fact the message has become only more potent over time with lazier and lazier parents. Not to mention that it's a musical, and a damn hilarious one at that. How can you forget songs like; "Kyle's Mom is a B&$@&", "What would Brain Boitono do? " And of course "Uncle F&$ka" No matter how many times I see this it always brings a smile to my face.

I agree with the guy below me- I too laugh my ass off every time I see this movie. I think this movie is probably one of the funniest things I've ever seen, ever. And each time I see it, somehow it gets funnier and funnier! - KennyMcCormick

South Park the movie is so funny! How the Hell did they get away with half the stuff they did? I laugh my ass off every time I see it.

I love South Park, but the series is certainly the best when it comes to ruthless, sick, demented, perverted humor. Nothing beats south park. Family Guy is second and the Simpson s are third. - Defyingsilence

31 Despicable Me

One of the funniest animated movies of all time! That painted pyramid in the background of Vector's house is just genius! This should be much higher!

Similar in tone to Megamind this is the story of an evil mastermind who attempts to steal the moon. But unfortunately for him there are 3 orphans in his way. - jezza0

Gives an amazing view of how children can change us. Children don't think like we do, they don't understand what we do and that makes them superior to us, because they have the ability of believe when they have no reason to, to hope even when we would know its impossible and to try even when its absurd or foolish. For children every thing is impossible, cause that's just how their mind believes the world works.

Funniest and the best movie

32 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

It is a great, heartwarming tale that shows the true meaning of friendship, and it shows great quality of generosity! Disney expanded this film into one of the greatest motion pictures of all time! It is truly an amazing classic!

To imagine this movie was made with thousands of drawing papers, and the iconic story, the impression it gave; just AWESOME!

How is this 28...? It was the first animated movie. NONE of these others would have existed without Snow White. You know what, I'm done, I can't be bothered to say more. Please put me back in 1937.

Classic. and how is this number 24, and this was the movie that, start it all. with out this movie there would be no list, case close!

33 The Iron Giant

A classic movie about what paranoia, war, and fear can do to people, and our tendency to shoot at anything we don't know or understand. It's beautiful and possibly a new favorite movie of mine. With a climax that'll make you cry, but an ending that's hopeful too. Amazing. - keycha1n

This masterpiece is one of the best, animated move. It deserves to have a place in the top ten best animated movies of all time. And the ending... I don't wanna spoil it, but bring tissues.

This movie should be in the top tens! I loved this movie when I was five and I still love it to this day. No reason not to like it. Great story, great characters, definitely not boring, if you haven't seen it now go see it!

How the Hell is this not (oh right it bombed at the box office because of bad marketing! ) the movie itself was critically acclaimed, gains its popularity on VHS & DVD, but it deserves to be Top 10, had it not been where it's tragedy under Box office performance and being viewed as underperformed but well acclaimed.

34 Ratatouille

WE should believe in the impossible, anyone can do it, no matter who. The story evolves around the rat because rats are creatures that are considered pests and are the last animal that would be brought into a kitchen. Rats however can be very smart and quick. It is similar to the movie "mouse hunt".

That mouse is the best chief

This has the best message in it, anyone can do it this movie should be #1

nice - galaco

35 Grave of the Fireflies

This is by far the most intense animated film that's more near to realism and gives a heart-breaking yet thought-provoking insight of the actual world that the children and adults alike should know about...

Really watch it. It will sway you. Really realistic everything its start and ending. Very sad but a true struggle depicting animated movie of all time. It is unique in its genre. No other war animated movie can even challenge it at this time. - divphygamer

This should be in the top ten, loved it really, cried like hell, even though its a 1988 creation, but still the best saddest animated movie ever...

I can't forget this movie. Ever. I still wondering and waiting for Hollywood 2 remake it as animate or movie.

36 Mulan

Speaking as a bullied girl, I did not think this movie was "perfect". In fact, watching it just left me wondering what the heck I was missing that made it so great like everyone swears it is.

Now Wreck-It Ralph, that's a perfect movie for anyone that is bullied, even has one of each in that situation gender-wise.

No, this does not deserve to be in the top 10. "I'll Make a Man Out of You" got annoying well before "Let It Go" even existed, "Reflection" is a whiny emo song, Mushu is THE most annoying Disney animal sidekick ever, and Mulan saving China does not make up for her spending the earlier parts of the movie where she wasn't wallowing in self-pity out over being discovered. The uber-feminists and social justice warriors who refuse to let this movie be the mere footnote in Disney history it should be need to get over this movie and themselves.

Milan deserves to be in the top ten. She is a great leader, and a total awesome person when it comes to being a rebel. And the songs rock. - AnonymousChick

THE BEST.

37 Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

The best batman movie and one of best movies of all time as well as being the most underrated one - lolsy

Maybe if people actually watched this instead of the rest of this mostly trash this would be

A fantastic, layered, and interesting film. - BeatlesFan1964

Should be in top 5 - iamBATMAN

38 Pinocchio

I think it's great the story is pretty entertaining

How is that fun?

Non of the villans are deafeted, Honest john and gideon are funny, And the coahcman is total nightmare.

39 Zootopia

In many ways, this is the most unique disney movie ever made since snow white. The deeply involved political message is what makes it stand out, and makes you think. The comedy is great, too. like the part with Chong from cheech and chong in the naked club. I only put this behind The incredibles and The lion king.

For me, it's on the same level of greatness as Inside Out.

After the amount of movies filled with recycled material, it was nice seeing something original with an great plot and message. Hands down, the best Disney movies in years.

At least top 20

40 Kung Fu Panda

My all time favourite animated movie.. I'm NOT kidding or exaggerating when I say that I have watched this a thousand times. And every time I watch this, I have the same magical feeling.. And unlike many other animated flicks, Kung Fu Panda can be enjoyed by both young as well as adults.. And that's the reason why a 20 year old like me still watches it and LOVES IT

WOW! This movie has awesome kung fu action scenes and very funny parts and Po is a very loveable character

49? This movie inspired me to learn about dragons in the first place. This is better than Lion King to me.

This movie is great and all but I personally thought the sequel was much better. - Augustocannoli
