21 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.

22 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 - Pixtol

23 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

25 The Nightmare Before Christmas

This movie was absolutely wonderful. It was very dark like a Tim Burton movie but also very cheerful and emotional at the same time. Jack's struggle to fill a longing for happiness and change made the movie very emotional and Sally's struggle to be normal and see the outside world. The songs in the movie either were very funny and cheerful such as the Oogie Boogie Song and This is Halloween. Then, there's the case about songs such as Jack's Lament and Sally's Song. I thought the emotion of a Tim Burton film combined with the comical Disney moments made this movie excellent. The stopmotion was excellent and I loved the animation. The music also fit the film perfectly.

This film is downright amazing! It has to be my #2 favorite Tim Burton film next to Batman. Apart from its beautiful Oscar-nominated visual effects, the music is the best part. And to those Disney metalheads, there's actually a Disney cover album called "Nightmare Revisited" which has the songs from Tim Burton's beloved classic covered by metal/modern rock's biggest names such as Marilyn Manson (The Beautiful People), Korn (Freak on a Leash), Rise Against (Savior), Amy Lee of Evanescense (Bring Me to Life), All-American Rejects (Move Along), and tons more, and I recommend you check it out. Apart from that, this is undeniably THE greatest stop-motion animated movie of all time. Who knew a Disney-Burton pairing would work out so well.

I love this movie so much. It's a great Halloween movie but, I also enjoy watching it around Christmas, too. You know what? I could watch it all the time. I love it that much.

Tim Burton is amazing at creating movies and I think this one is one of his best. I love the songs and the story plot is great.

26 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

It's an amazing one

27 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.

28 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

I love Robin Williams - GBird

29 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.

Tai Lung and Shen are amazing villains

30 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.

It was OK but I thought it was pretty cheesy at the end when they somehow brought Ana back to life with "true love" - Phillip873

31 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 wish there were more R-rated animated features like the South Park movie

SO PLEASE MAKE THIS HIGHER ON THE LIST!

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 will start at position Number 171. If it doesn't move up to at least number 15, this list is very inaccurate.

All I'm gonna say is that this movie is amazing

34 Charlotte's Web

Why in the world is this ranked 39?!?! This is seriously one of the best movies ever! (And I'm an adult) I love Wilbur, I think he is definitely the best character. I love how he is a joyful person overall but can be emotional at times, like a normal person will. Not to mention that he's funny. One of the funniest animated characters ever. This movie has some wonderful songs too. I honestly love all of them. The voice cast is amazing and has great talent. It isn't super over violent like some other animated movies are. Not to mention this movie is heartwarming. I love how it shows the beauty of nature and the meaning of life. The story is beautiful. The movie also has a lot of meaning if you really pay attention. Overall this is one of my all time favorite movies, not just animated, all time!

WHY IS THIS SO LOW?! THIS SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 10! This is better than ANY animated movie made in since Finding Nemo, but even the best Pixar movies can't compete with the most beautiful, heartwarming, wonderful movie EVER. I actually cried during some parts, it was THAT touching! In just about every part I laughed, I cried, and I was completely moved beyond words! No other animated movie not from Disney or Pixar I've EVER SEEN has so much heart, beauty, and soul! Have you EVER seen a movie with SO MUCH values and meaning? This is the most meaningful movie of all time! GET IT TO THE TOP TEN!

This movie is depressing and makes you feel sorry for the two main characters, but I loved every minute of it. It is completely heartbreaking and sentimental. The story is moving and this movie has some of the best dialogue I've ever heard. All the characters are well thought out and unique. Wonderful movie.

Emotional, I love the live action one too - Pixtol

35 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

Awesome movie deserves to be in top 10 in my opinion

36 Dumbo

How is Frozen and NIMH higher than this? This is one of the best Disney movies ever. - Tacocheese

Dumbo so cute

How on earth is this in forty. I love it. Sure dumbos drunken thoughts are semi creepy but every movie has its flaws.

It's a bit hard to watch as an adult seeing Dumbo go through all that cruel mocking (and because I'm a kind person who hates seeing others go through torture and something), but this movie is still great and awesome, Timothy and Dumbo are such a great pair and Dumbo is so adorable!

Oddly unlike others I never was scared by the Pink Elephants sequence, I thought it was awesome, and despite some claims of racism I thought the crows were great characters too. - SailorSedna

37 Megamind

Magamind is one of the funniest animated movies that Dreamworks Animations have ever made. Whoever said that Madagascar and Megamind isn't "magical" enough to be top is clueless. It doesn't have to be magical to be brilliant.

With the voice of Will Ferrell and Tina Fey, how can this not be funny? Yes it might be predated by Despicable Me, but Megamind is an enjoyable romp in it's own right.

Very oringinal, unpredictable, great twists, action packed and very funny. Great!

This movie was funny and brilliant. - SailorSedna

38 All Dogs Go to Heaven

Come on, critics, why didn't you like this? This was another great film and the first Don Bluth film I watched. It's enjoyable, funny, suspenseful, sad and bittersweet, especially the ending. - SailorSedna

39 Pinocchio

I think it's great the story is pretty entertaining

How is that fun?

The first Disney film and movie I ever saw. It has great animation and art, wonderful, charming characters, excellent voice acting, music and songs, and while different from the original book (which is also great), like Pinocchio is more of a naive little kid who doesn't know too much about the world instead of being a jackass right at the beginning, it still manages to be amazing in its own way. It has its scary parts in it but it does teach harsh lessons with it, always listen to your conscience, don't behave badly or do stuff like smoke or drink in excess or you'll make a jackass out of yourself, and if you prove to be unselfish, truthful and brave you'll get your reward.

And of course it's got a happy ending too. What a great introduction to the film and animation mediums this was, and I highly recommend this brilliant magical film to everyone! - SailorSedna

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

40 Princess Mononoke

It's awesome. It's got giant wolf gods and giant boar demons! What's not to like?

Magical. Different from every movie you see nowadays like Frozen, Toy Story, etc, but better still. Just see for yourself.

I love this movie! One of my top 5 movies of all time! Why so low on the list?

This should be higher than spirited away.
