Top Ten Traditionally Animated Movies

Traditional (or "hand-drawn") animation is a rarity in modern film-making these days, mainly due to the cost and lack of efficiency that comes with drawing and coloring each frame by hand without the aid of computers. Nowadays, animators don't just use computers to create their animations, they let the computers do most of the work. And, as a result, they are able to create photo-realistic three-denominational environments and characters in a fraction of the time for a fraction of the cost. But that doesn't mean that we can't long for the days of old when beautifully-painted backdrops filled the massive screens at our local movie theater. This list compiles the traditionally-animated movies that we admire most.

The Top Ten

1 The Lion King

I wish people would stop defending this movie so much and let the haters have their opinions just like any dumb person who likes this movie have theirs.

It was even rated the most successful traditionally animated movie. - PeeledBanana

Its actually adapted from a japanese movie - Ananya

This movie is bad because of many reasons, one of which is portraying spotted hyenas as both villains and a comic relief trio (they don't fit those roles). It has the worst characters ever of any media, and the songs are annoying and not as good. Please boycott this whole movie.

2 The Simpsons Movie

The scene with the blackout at Moe's Tavern was really funny. Only Barney Gumble would be desperate enough to take advantage of the blackout.
