21 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.

22 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

23 Toy Story 2

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

Amazing movie

24 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.

25 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...

26 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

27 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

The plot is riddled with more holes than SpongeBob himself, but it's funny and the animation is well crafted. - SourNote2014

28 Big Hero 6

It's a very very nice
Everyone should watch it

29 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.

Whitout this movie, there woulde no list!

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.

Maybe it wouldn't be so overhated if it would've been about The Snow Queen instead.

31 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.

32 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.

33 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.

I love kung fu panda very much and I love all the things of it the way the panda does kung fu and every thing of the move.

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

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...

This is the best animated movie I had seen so far.

36 Shrek 2

I liked the original, but I still think the sequel is superior. I still can't quite watch it the same way though... - Garythesnail

I still prefer the original but this is still a ripper film.

I still remember seeing this in theaters. I was 4 at the time. - Pony

While I love Shrek, this film is one of few sequels to surpass its predecessor. - punyraisin

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!

Super underrated and it's a great movie! - TopTenHaters

38 Despicable Me 2

I love this movie one of the greatest animated movie ever absolutely amazing I went to go see this movie in theaters and it was out of this world I love the minions there awesome very funny I can't wait till they release it on dvd

Why is it on 42? It should be on top ten! Because it ROCKS!

Awesome should be higher - jeter

I think Despicable Me 1 was the only good one. This one was OK I guess and 3 was kind of bad - Phillip873

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.

How is this not within top tens this movie is awesome

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?

Best animated movie ever
