Most Underrated Animated Disney Movies

Some of Disney's animated movies get a bad wrap. And while, yeah, some of them aren't great, there are a number of them that deserve better reviews than they receive.

The Top Ten

1 Brother Bear

All of these are underrated. - Pony

This makes me sob.

The book is wonderful!

2 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

It SHOULD be underrated. It was boring, lacked a great deal, and very dry and dull. Disappointing to someone who loves things that have to do with the ocean.

3 Treasure Planet

I prefer Scroop over Frollo

I liked the movie, I don't regret it being underrated. - TheXGamer

Overall a beautiful movie

4 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

It makes me sad to see this as underrated. Quasimodo forever. - Anonymousxcxc

This should NOT be underrated.

5 The Black Cauldron

The most underrated disney movie of all time! - Carsrule300

I'm only voting this because nobody's ever heard of it, pretty much.

6 The Rescuers Down Under

Who doesn't love Australia?

Pheonmal effort

7 Wreck-It Ralph

It pains me to add this here, but once "Big Hero 6" came out this movie was all but completely forgotten, and it got overshadowed by "Star Wars".

That you can more easily find fans of "Rise of the Guardians" than this movie bothers me.

This movie was and is awesome. A great plot, great characters that have wonderful chemistry together, and beautiful visually. Seen at least a dozen times and totally recommend.

It somehow lost to Brave. That's underrated for sure.

I liked this film.

6th favourite

10 Oliver & Company

My 15th favourite

The Newcomers

? Recess: School's Out

My favorite Disney film. - SpinelliFan

The Contenders

11 Tarzan

Tarzan is a phenomenal film! I'm really surprised that it's underrated. In terms of box office, it's one of the most successful Disney animated films.

Tarzan is such a beautiful story. I love it. Great for boys and girls equally.

I loved it

12 The Aristocats
13 The Sword in the Stone
14 Planes: Fire & Rescue
15 Meet the Robinsons

I love this movie! It has such a sweet story and great characters.

16 Robin Hood

*tears *more tears Love this movie so much. Foxy ladies too haha

7th favourite

17 The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

My favourite of the Disney package films

18 The Fox and the Hound

This was just beautiful.

19 Big Hero 6

I'd disagree, but now that Zootopia's eclipsed EVERYTHING except Frozen...

20 Pocahontas
21 Cars 2

I really enjoyed this movie. It has the same fantastic characters as the original and it has a cool spy theme. I love the fact that it's like Mission Impossible but still kid friendly so it's enjoyable for the whole family.

I liked this a LOT more than its predecessor. I'm really confused about why it has the worst reviews for a Pixar film.

Pistachio ice cream! Haha

It's a good movie!

22 The Emperor's New Groove
23 A Goofy Movie
24 Brave

Say that again, whoever commented that you wished Wreck-it Ralph being on this list is a joke. We think it’s NoirRaven! What a f’in cyber bully! He must’ve upvoted the comment about why we give The Lost Emoire too much credit also! FML.

25 Tangled
26 The Rescuers
27 Home On the Range

Great underrated Disney film

28 Dinosaur

2000 movie

29 Kim Possible the Movie: So the Drama
30 Saludos Amigos
31 The Three Caballeros
32 Fantasia
33 Fantasia 2000
34 Fun and Fancy Free
35 Make Mine Music
36 Melody Time
37 Winnie the Pooh
38 Moana

Most people are still too hung up on worshiping Zootopia to bother with this one, and it's already lost one major industry award to Zootopia.

39 The Lion King

It deserves more pride

No it does not. TLK sucks.

40 Zootopia
41 Strange Magic
42 Beauty and the Beast (1991)
43 Hercules (1997)

WAY too underrated.
